King tweeted his thoughts Tuesday after Fox News reported on Manafort Posting federal penalties for bank and tax fraud will be relocated to Riker's Island later this week.

"I see people who are thrilled to have sent Paul Manafort to Rikers Island and put him in solitary confinement," King tweeted. "We must have such fundamental principles in our demands for reform that we want them for our enemies as well."
