Re: Quants in POLAND

looks like nothing of the sort. Manafort was a mainstay of past GOP campaigns (Ford, Reagan Dole for starters) and was second to none when it comes to coralling delegates at the convention, which is exactly what was needed when it looked like there might be a floor fight.
As stated, John Podesta (who did the exact same things as Manafort but was given immunity) worked for BJ Clinton, Hillary, and Obama, so you must consider those three to be poor judges of people also.
Manafort would not have been prosecuted if it had not been for the Mueller special council and would not have been prosecuted if he had not worked for Trump. He was targeted to try to get  him to give the prosecutors something against Trump
Right, right. And, to be clear, Manfort has not merely been indicted and prosecuted, he has been found guilty of a variety of felonies.
So he did it. And so did the Podestas and Tad Devine, who were given immunity rather than indicted or prosecuted.
My point would be that they should all have been treated the same. Prosecute all or prosecute none, rather than prosecute the Trump volunteer and give immunity to the democrats
The judge (Ellis) summed it up
“You don’t really care about Mr. Manafort’s bank fraud. You really care about getting information Mr. Manafort can give you that would reflect on Mr. Trump and lead to his prosecution or impeachment.”

Manafort, Podesta, Clinton, Obama are quants in Poland.

You're insane. All of you.

He was a rather loudly outspoken opponent of the current right-wing government of Poland, for obvious reasons. FoxNews conveniently forgot to mention that.

I had hoped nobody would bring politics into it.
Two main groups were involved in the Warsaw ghetto uprising, the right-wing Jewish underground organisation Żydowski Związek Wojskowy (ZZW) or Jewish Military Union and the socialist  Żydowska Organizacja Bojowa (ŻOB) or Jewish Combat Organization.
Simcha Rotem was a member of the socialist ZOB
He was a rather loudly outspoken opponent of the current right-wing government of Poland, for obvious reasons. FoxNews conveniently forgot to mention that.
"for obvious reasons?"
To me, the obvious reason would be that he's a socialist, but could you spell out what you're saying?
Are you suggesting that "the current right-wing government of Poland" is killing Jews, like Hitler did and like Stalin did?

I'm suggesting that the current right-wing government of Poland is Trump-like in its aggression against democracy. Whether you want to equate that with Stalin and Hitler is perhaps premature, but not unreasonable. Oddly, Jews are not front and center in either case, although a deep hatred of George Soros is lurking in both camps.

You're a victim of the comtemporary world, bearish. You don't have a clue what Poland is, you don't speak a word in Polish, you've never been there, you know nothing about Polish culture and history. You even don't know (without google) the name of the prime minister who is (almost) equal to Stalin and Hitler in your opinion.

Why so? You've read something in the newspapers. In this particular case they lied. And what if they lie in most cases? You've got negative knowledge of the world.
Then provide some objective news yourself. Say it is not true and avoid Godwin's Law. 
We're talking about the current state of Polish politics.

There is a concern about your judiciary's independence.
