Paul Manafort Sues Mueller and Asks a Judge to Narrow the Russia Investigation

The holidays were great weren’t they? Trumpland was mostly quiet. CNN’s general buffoonery was limited by end of the year specials. Now, we’re back to this stuff.


(From The New York Times)

President Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, took the unusual step on Wednesday of suing the special counsel and asking a federal court to narrow his authority.

The move comes as Mr. Trump tries to cast the investigation as a politically motivated witch hunt that has cast a dark cloud over his administration and, in his view, the country. The president said last week that he hoped the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, will treat him fairly.

Mr. Mueller is investigating the Russian government’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election and whether anyone close to Mr. Trump was involved. As part of that investigation, prosecutors indicted Mr. Manafort on money laundering charges related to years of foreign lobbying — but not related to Russian election interference or the Trump campaign.

Let’s all be honest New York Times, every knows it’s a politically motivated witch hunt. That’s pretty much the point. You guys know it. We know it. The whole world knows it. This isn’t about “justice” or the good of the country, it’s mostly just about extracting blood from the guy who upset the chosen “heir” to the crown. We all get it. You, and many fellow travelers hate Trump. You feel like you HAVE to win.

And that is not a good position to be in.
