How NOT to redact a document, brought to you by the attorneys for former Trump Campaign Chairman Paul Manafort (video tutorial)

With Manafort’s sentencing date approaching Paul Manafort’s attorneys filed a response brief to Mueller’s filing to the court detailing how Manafort had breached his plea agreement with the Special Counsel’s Office and is therefore not entitled to any consideration at sentencing.

You might think by now that Manafort’s attorneys would have figured out how to redact a court filing, or that, considering the considerable jeopardy facing their client, they might at least consult Google on the subject.

But you would be wrong.
