"The series isn't over until the fat lady sings".
"It's not over until it's over"
Pick your saying. "It's a long road without any twists and turns."
The Miami US Attorney's office, thwarted by the outrageous commutation of Philip Esformes mega health care fraud 20 year sentence after a bitter trial, studied the chess board, moved a few pieces, and voila! Mr. Esformes is not in the clear yet. In his prior trial the jury hung on several health care fraud counts. POTUS 45 did not grant Esformes a pardon. He commuted his 20 year sentence and the devil is in the details. While Esformes' case winds its way through the 11th circuit, which once a year reverses a criminal case (usually for Mr. Markus), the US attorneys office in Miami announced their decision to re-try Mr. Esformes on the hung counts.
In other words, the fat lady has not yet sung on Mr. Esformes' case.
Judge Scola, when he sentenced Esformes called the case once of the biggest health care fraud schemes in the nation. Or words to that effect. POTUS 45 let him out, but he DOJ of POTUS 46 may just put Philip Esformes back in.
Of course all is not lost. POTUS 45 said he is going to run again. Which means in 2025 he will be able to let Esformes out again if he wins. Stranger things have happened.
