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

CNBC, by Tucker Higgins

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/3/2018 3:11:45 PM

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

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.

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.

Reporter Jim Acosta says comments he made during a recent interview on the Trump administration have been “twisted” by critics to make him look bad. CNN’s chief White House correspondent took to Twitter on Wednesday to chide media outlets that covered his commentary for Variety’s Tuesday exclusive on the “combative world of covering the Trump White House.” Mr. Acosta claims he wasn’t talking about Mr. Trump’s voters when he said “the problem is that people around the country don’t know [Mr. Trump’s rhetoric] it’s an act. … They don’t have all their faculties in some cases — their elevator might not hit

A federal judge in New York on Thursday appointed one of her former colleagues on that bench, Barbara Jones, to review documents seized from President Donald Trump´s long-time lawyer Michael Cohen. Jones, now a lawyer in private practice, will be responsible for checking those files to see which ones can be turned over to prosecutors investigating Cohen for suspected criminal conduct. Files subject to attorney-client privilege would not be given to prosecutors. Lawyers for Trump and Cohen for nearly two weeks have raised objections to the prosecution´s plan to have those documents reviewed for privilege issues by a team of prosecutors not affiliated

The James Comey memos that leaked to the media and were a catalyst for the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller were more widely shared than previously known, three sources familiar with the matter tell Fox News. Sources identified former U.S. Attorney and special counsel Patrick Fitzgerald as the likely recipient, and did not rule out a third individual, in addition to Columbia law professor Daniel Richman, who shared contents with the media. The memos documenting Comey’s private conversations with the president are now the subject of a Justice Department Inspector General review over the presence of classified information.

Half the country hated him for how he handled the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton, and the other half cannot stand him for his cutting commentary on President Trump. So, who is left to show up when Jim Comey hosts a book party in Washington, D.C.? Members of the media, of course! (Snip) It was, Comey said, his first and perhaps his last-ever book party. Like any intimate affair among friends, the evening began with a makeshift news conference. “Can you confirm that Pat Fitzgerald is representing you in some way?” Lynn Sweet of the Chicago Sun-Times asked Comey, referring

What does it mean that the Democrat Party you and I grew up with doesn’t exist anymore? What does it mean that the Democrat Party has been taken over by the radical left, which is literally resisting everything, and they are refusing to acknowledge and tolerate and deal with the fact that they lose elections now and then. We’re getting to the point that they will not accept losing. They will not tolerate others winning and are not going

Democratic California Rep. Maxine Waters hopes an FBI raid on Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, provides Democrats with a “treasure trove” of information with which to impeach Trump, she said in a new interview. “I am certainly working toward his impeachment,” Waters told Variety Magazine in an interview published Wednesday. “I think Mueller is doing a great job. I am hopeful that the Cohen tapes will be a treasure trove of information that will help move us toward that,” Waters said. Waters has been calling for Trump’s impeachment since before he took office. She previously guaranteed Trump colluded

In a direct assault on the freedoms of speech and religion, the California Assembly on Thursday overwhelmingly approved a bill that would, in effect, prohibit the dissemination of traditional Christian teaching on homosexuality and transgenderism. The Assembly voted 50-14 to criminalize “a transaction intended to result or that results in the sale or lease of goods or services to any consumer” that consists of “advertising, offering to engage in, or engaging in sexual orientation change efforts with an individual.” The bill defines “sexual orientation change efforts” as “any practices that seek to change an individual’s sexual orientation.

Census: Immigrants on welfare

Welfare and Medicaid use by new immigrants, even those with college degrees, has surged to new levels, an indication that the jobs they came to America to take aren’t there, according to a new report. The Census Bureau charted the growth in the use of taxpayer-funded programs for financially poor new immigrants and found the biggest rise in the use of welfare, roughly triple over the last 10 years. And, according to an analysis by the Center for Immigration Studies, the use of Medicaid by immigrants has gone up nearly as much. Steven Camarota, the center´s director of research and

Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, warned President Trump firing special counsel Robert Mueller could lead to impeachment, becoming one of the first congressional Republicans to mention impeachment directly. “Firing Mr. Mueller would be a grave error. It would trigger a crisis, possibly even impeachment,” Hatch said in a Wall Street Journal opinion piece published Tuesday night. “It would threaten many of the administration’s accomplishments and make continued progress virtually impossible.” In his op-ed, Hatch endorsed the proposed legislation aimed at protect Mueller from being fired by Trump, or, for that matter, any president from firing a counsel appointed to investigating potential presidential misconduct.

On the domestic and foreign fronts, the Trump administration has prompted economic growth and restored U.S. deterrence. Polls show increased consumer confidence, and in some, Trump himself has gained ground. Yet good news is bad news to the Resistance and its strange continued efforts to stop an elected president in a way it failed to do in the 2016 election. Indeed, the aim of the so-called Resistance to Donald J. Trump is ending Trump’s presidency by any means necessary before the 2020 election. Or, barring that, it seeks to so delegitimize him that he becomes presidentially impotent. It has been only

Former Democratic Senate Leader Harry Reid, who was once “hopeful” about President Trump, is not warming up to the commander in chief. Reid still has hurt feelings about Trump mocking the injuries he sustained when an exercise band he was using at home snapped and hit him in the face. Reid fell to the floor, breaking his ribs and bones in his face. He now is blind in one eye. Trump mocked Reid in September 2016 after the Democratic leader commented on Trump’s weight. “[To show] what kind of a person he is, when I injured myself, I couldn’t sleep

NBC poured millions of dollars into “Megyn Kelly Today” and, in return, they’ve been rewarded with a massive drop in viewership. The Peacock network poached Kelly from Fox last year, enticing her from the conservative flagship network with a three-year, $69 million contract, according to the Wall Street Journal. But Kelly’s introduction to NBC, premiering at the 9 a.m. hour in September, was met with almost immediate controversy — a feud with Jane Fonda that the morning show host dragged out for months — and she never drew the viewership that the network was looking for. Her Sunday night newsmagazine show was

That’s a problem for Republicans, who now need to sort through the results to determine how problematic the landscape will be for them in November.

Schools are removing analogue clocks from examination halls because teenagers are unable to tell the time, a head teachers’ union has said. Teachers are now installing digital devices after pupils sitting their GCSE and A-level exams complained that they were struggling to read the correct time on an analogue clock. Malcolm Trobe, deputy general secretary at the Association of School and College Leaders (ASCL), said youngsters have become accustomed to using digital devices. “The current generation aren’t as good at reading the traditional clock face as older generations,” he told The Telegraph.
