Trump ex-Campaign Chair Manafort sues
Mueller, Rosenstein, and Department of Justice

CNBC, by Tucker Higgins

Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort has sued special counsel Robert Mueller, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and the U.S. Department of Justice. The suit alleges that Mueller has strayed beyond the scope of the investigation he was authorized to pursue, and argues that the charges filed against Manafort have nothing to do with the 2016 presidential election that spurred Mueller´s appointment. "The actions of DOJ and Mr. Rosenstein in issuing the Appointment Order, and Mr. Mueller´s actions pursuant to the authority the Order granted him, were arbitrary, capricious, and not in accordance with the law," the suit reads. The appointment order authorizing

Agree, OP. They´re eating their own. Soon, it will be "abandon ship"; everyone for themselves. Just imagine Hillary right now.

Everything Manafort is alleging has been obvious to everyone from the beginning. I wish I had more confidence in the integrity of our federal judges, but I don´t.

Also, most of the evidence against him was likely obtained illegally with a false FISA warrant.

Good! Hopefully, it will keep them tied up for a long time defending themselves. Everyone KNOWS Mueller is WAY beyond Russia. He´s looking for something to nail Trump with and he´s not finding it! You would think he would want to stay retired, with the good name he had before he said yes to taking on this deal. I think already most people don´t think much of him due to the Lawyers he lined up to go after Trump. Time he gets done, he will be viewed as corrupt as the Clintons!

While all this may be true, he doesn´t stand a chance. The order permits him to investigate any matters that "may arise directly from the investigation."

True, but the order itself may exceed the limits set by the statute. That´s the issue.

I hope Manafort wins. His compensation should be the dismantling of the FBI.

Of course, the evil DOJ has probably impounded all of Manafort´s money and stolen his house too. It´s the way the evil DOJ puts citizens on their knees these days. Even King George could only tax you, or station troops in your home.

No matter who you are, you don’t want to get caught in the crosshairs of Benghazi hero Kris Paronto, an Army Ranger. Paronto unleashed a fiery Twitter takedown of Obama-appointed Deep State agents Andrew McCabe, James Comey, and John Brennan. And they’re going to need some aloe to nurse those sick burns. Paronto started off by blasting McCabe, who whined to the media that his firing was an attempt by the Trump White House to “slander” him and the entire FBI.

Former attorney general Eric Holder questioned AG Jeff Sessions’ ability to stand up to President Trump during a Monday event at Georgetown University. Speaking to the Georgetown Institute of Politics and Public Service, Holder suggested that Sessions should have avoided firing former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe despite the FBI’s recommendation for him to do so. Holder also accused Sessions of rushing the decision to fire McCabe, even though McCabe was forced to step down from his role as deputy director in January and the investigation into his conduct has been going on for a year. “It may be that

A Manhattan Supreme Court judge has ruled that President Trump´s job in the White House does not give him immunity from a defamation lawsuit filed against him by former "Apprentice" contestant Summer Zervos. “In Clinton v Jones the United States Supreme Court held that a sitting president is not immune from being sued in federal court for unofficial acts,” Justice Jennifer Schecter wrote in a ruling released Tuesday, according to the New York Post. “It left open the question of whether concerns of federalism and comity compel a different conclusion for suits brought in state court. Because they do not, defendant’s

The operator of a self-driving Uber vehicle that struck and killed a pedestrian in suburban Phoenix Monday was a convicted felon who served almost four years in prison on an attempted armed robbery charge, according to court records. The Volvo was in self-driving mode with Rafaela Vasquez, 44, at the wheel when the car hit 49-year-old Elaine Herzberg as she was walking a bicycle outside the lines of a crosswalk, police said. Herzberg later died at a hospital. Court records obtained by the Arizona Republic show Vasquez has a criminal record in Arizona under a different legal name, and was

Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano explained Monday why he believes the firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe could be viewed as "obstruction of justice." (Snip) Napolitano said he sees the firing as "reckless" and "vindictive" because McCabe is "more likely than not to be a witness" against Sessions´ boss, President Trump. "Firing him in that environment could very well be interpreted as an effort to diminish his effectiveness as a witness. What´s that called? Obstruction of justice," said Napolitano, adding he´s unsure if Special Counsel Robert Mueller will pursue such a case. Napolitano said on "America´s Newsroom"

Officials in a Minneapolis school district are trying to figure out why black students are suspended three times more often than their white peers, according to a Sunday report. Black students have a 338 percent higher chance than white students to be suspended at Justice Page Middle School in Minneapolis, Minn., according to The New York Times. Black students make up 41 percent of the Minneapolis school district’s student body, but 76 percent of its suspensions. The black students constantly tell the principal, “The teacher only sees me,” Justice Page Principal Erin Rathke said. She responds, “Yes, that’s probably true.”

James Kallstrom is no joke. With nearly thirty years in the FBI, several of them as the Assistant Director, Kallstrom knows how the agency functions far more than most. So when he says there was a plot to protect Hillary Clinton from prosecution and to illegally influence the 2016 Election people should pay attention. Kallstrom goes on to call the entirety of the FBI investigation against Donald Trump completely phony. Maria Bartiromo’s own take appears very much to compliment Mr. Kallstrom’s assertions. The Deep State shenanigans run very deep and in 2016 are linked to the Obama White House. Barack Obama

A retired United States Army lieutenant colonel and Fox News contributor quit Tuesday and denounced the network and President Donald Trump in an email to colleagues. "Fox has degenerated from providing a legitimate and much-needed outlet for conservative voices to a mere propaganda machine for a destructive and ethically ruinous administration," wrote Ralph Peters, a Fox News "strategic analyst." "Over my decade with Fox, I long was proud of the association. Now I am ashamed," he wrote.

The suspect and a friend reportedly pulled up to the drive-thru of the McDonald’s just before 11 a.m. on March 18, where they placed an order for a breakfast sandwich with bacon, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. But upon receiving a breakfast sandwich with sausage instead, the woman became angry. “What the [expletive] is this?
