US Constitution, 8th Amendment
Excessive bail shall not be required ...
Ever wonder what that means?
President Donald Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort has agreed to an $11.65 million bail agreement with the special counsel investigating Trump campaign ties to Russia, the longtime Republican political consultant's lawyer said on Thursday.
Manafort, who was indicted along with a business associate Richard Gates in October, would be released from house arrest and electronic monitoring under the deal, lawyer Kevin Downing said in a filing in U.S. District Court in Washington.
Manafort, who has been confined to his Virginia home, has agreed to forfeit four real estate properties worth about $11.65 million if there is a bail violation, the court document said. Manafort previously had an unsecured $10 million "appearance bond" to guarantee he shows up to court.

Anyone with at least half a brain should know this will end badly.
