I’ve reported on this earlier but I think it deserves another mention. From Jan 22 to the present, there are 17 documents missing from #Manafort DC docket. @Maddow @lawrence

Here is the relevant docket excerpt. Docket

Based on my experience, the court’s minutes entries and orders don’t get a document number because they are not a “document.”  So starting with January 22 entry I count 17 missing documents as follows:

522, 523, 525, 526, 529, 530, 531, 532, 534, 537, 539, 540, 542, 546, 547, 548 and 550.

I’ve seen the SDNY use an entry for documents placed in the “vault” that does not give a document number. Based on a review I did in the SDNY Zarrab case (that has a lot of these pending) the “vault” entries turned out to be either related to a secret plea or a superseding indictment before it was unsealed.

For all the folks who are docket watching and in particular those who are concerned Manafort got off too light, I think the one conclusion I can draw for sure about this is that we have not seen the last of Paul Manafort in the DC court.
