The Meaning Of "Excessive Bail"

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.

The US Constitution is being torn apart right before our eyes, for BS reasons, and nobody seems to give a damn.

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