Opinion: Conservatives don't trust D.C. residents with Manafort

D.C. residents have every right to be peeved by the assertion of onetime Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort’s lawyers that their client cannot get a fair federal trial in the city. The Manafort legal team has requested that his trial on money-laundering and conspiracy charges be moved from the District to Roanoke, Va., because “intensely negative” news coverage has biased potential jurors against him.

That is as phony as a canary with fangs.
