With Trump's federal judge appointments.... Clown may even have a shot.
Well, wait now, let me think.
I read almost every day on the forum here that Mannafort has flipped and is working with Mueller. Is this what working with Mueller looks like?
You know sometimes the tards are wrong, as when they write or say anything, anywhere.
His lawsuit is headed nowhere but it will produce more information about what has been going on and fuel the fire to appoint witchhunters for the dems and the fbi. That's fine. Go for it. I accept the fact that Mueller is there and cannot be removed. I just want to see the same witchhunters appointed for others, witchhunters with unlimited authority, unlimited time, unlimited staff, and unlimited funds. Let em go at for three or four years if needed.
Ex-Trump campaign manager Manafort sues Mueller, Rosenstein, claims Russia probe has gone too far

Paul Manafort suing Robert Mueller and Rod Rosenstein
Fox News confirms that Manafort's legal team has filed a lawsuit claiming the Russia probe has gone too far.
Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his legal team are suing Special Counsel Robert Mueller and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, alleging the Russia probe has gone beyond the scope of the special counsel regulations, according to an 18-page civil complaint filed with the district court in Washington.
"The investigation of Mr. Manafort is completely unmoored from the special counsel's original jurisdiction to investigate ‘any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump.’”
In October, Manafort and his business partner Rick Gates pleaded not guilty to a 12-count indictment that included allegations of money laundering and making false statements in connection with their work in Ukraine.

The complaint continued, "Those alleged dealings had no connection whatsoever to the 2016 presidential election or even to Donald Trump." Manafort's legal team is asking the court "to hold those actions unlawful and set them aside."
According to the complaint, Mueller was given additional authority to pursue "any matters that arose or may arise from that investigation."
Manafort’s legal team alleges the deputy attorney general went beyond his "authority to appoint a special council as well as specific restrictions on the scope of such appointments."
At the time of the May 2017 appointment of Mueller, Rosenstein said, "It is in the public interest for me to exercise my authorities and appoint a special counsel to assume responsibility for this matter."
Meanwhile, Rosenstein arrived on Capitol Hill Wednesday afternoon to meet with House Speaker Paul Ryan on the Russia investigation. "Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein asked to meet with the speaker and we accommodated the request," Ryan's office told Fox News, adding that FBI Director Christopher Wray intended to meet with Ryan as well.
Manafort alleges he’s been "injured" by the investigation, causing him "significant reputational harm, has exposed him to invasions of his personal privacy, and has forced him to incur substantial costs and expenses to defend himself."
A Justice Department spokesman told Fox News: “The lawsuit is frivolous but the defendant is entitled to file whatever he wants.”
The Special Counsel’s office did not immediately return a request for comment.

Quote one person saying that, tard.
Yep. Mueller has flipped and is now working for Manafort.
Good thing we have the Tards here to remind us of that because a simple country boy like me could get confused otherwise.
And now that Mueller has allegedly flipped, we know that he will stick it to Trump as hard as he can because- other than the fact that Trump is the only person on earth who can pardon him for a federal crime- why should he worry about alienating Trump? Probably it would never occur to Manafort to even think about that.
