Special counsel Robert Mueller’s never-ending investigation into Trump-Russia collusion is beginning to show cracks in the case, with two federal judges rebuking the ongoing probe as expanding well beyond its original “scope.”
Over the course of the last week, Mueller’s team has faced multiple legal challenges from two federal judges regarding the legal case against Paul Manafort as well as 13 Russian nationals accused of election meddling.
“You’re now using [that material] … as a means of persuading Mr. Manafort to provide information,” said U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III Friday, adding the special counsel’s office was hoping to bring about “prosecution or impeachment or whatever.”
Over the weekend, another judge blocked Mueller’s request to delay hearings surrounding 13 Russian nationals; asking for more time to follow additional leads.
The President weighed-in on the legal challenges Monday, saying Democrats are starting to learn that there is a “court system in place that actually protects people from injustice.”
The 13 Angry Democrats in charge of the Russian Witch Hunt are starting to find out that there is a Court System in place that actually protects people from injustice…and just wait ‘till the Courts get to see your unrevealed Conflicts of Interest!
