President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman sued special counsel Robert Mueller and the Justice Department on Wednesday, saying prosecutors had overstepped their bounds by charging him for conduct that he says is unrelated to Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
The lawsuit by Paul Manafort, filed in federal court in Washington, is the most direct challenge to date to Mueller’s legal authority and the scope of his mandate as special counsel. It comes amid Republican allegations of partisan bias among members of Mueller’s team, which for months has been investigating whether the Trump campaign coordinated with Russia to influence the outcome of the U.S. election.
The lawsuit also takes aim at Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who is overseeing Mueller’s investigation and recently said he was satisfied that the former FBI director was staying within the scope of his authority.
This is a "Hail Mary" pass that will definitely get thrown out.
However it illustrates how desperate Manafort is to keep his business dealings secret.
And I would not be at all surprised that he is also doing this on behalf of Donald Trump to help keep HIS business dealings secret.
These assholes are terrified of what's coming, and that only makes me more excited for the final reveal.
