The decision to send one of the highest-profile Trump campaign members prosecuted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller to New York City’s infamous Rikers Island jail has stunned many in the legal community — and even some Democrats not normally sympathetic toward Mueller targets.

Yesterday GL covered Alan Dershowitz’s views on the transfer.

Ocasio-Cortez, whose district includes Rikers, blasted the idea of keeping Manafort in solitary, as was reported.

“A prison sentence is not a license for gov torture and human rights violations. That‘s what solitary confinement is,” Ocasio Cortez tweeted Wednesday. “Manafort should be released, along with all people being held in solitary.”
