A surprise lawsuit spells doom for Robert Mueller

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s free ride is over.

Now Trump and his associates are starting to fight back.

And one surprise lawsuit could spell doom for Mueller’s Russia investigation.

Mueller indicted former Campaign chairman Paul Manafort on a series of financial crimes for his work from 2006 to 2014 as a consultant to a political party in Ukraine.



But Mueller was tasked with investigation possible collusion with Russia in the 2016 election.

The charges against Manafort have nothing to do with that mandate.

So Manafort fired back with a lawsuit against the special counsel.

Politico reports:

“Attorneys for former Donald Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort filed a lawsuit Wednesday in federal court accusing special counsel Robert Mueller and the Justice Department of overreaching with criminal charges brought last fall that included money laundering and tax evasion.

Manafort, who has pleaded not guilty to the multi-count indictment, urged the court to strike down Mueller’s appointment as illegal. The 17-page complaint argues that the Russia special counsel exceeded authority DOJ gave him in May to investigate any links or coordination between the Russian government and the Trump campaign — and that DOJ granted Mueller too much power in the first place by giving him the green light to go after “any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation.”

If the court won’t strike down his appointment, Manafort’s lawsuit suggests several other options, including setting aside Mueller’s indictments, declaring that he doesn’t have the authority to investigate business dealings that aren’t part of his original mandate, stopping him from investigating matters beyond the scope of the original appointment, or “any other relief as may be just and proper.”

“The principle that government must be both limited in power and accountable to the people lies at the core of our constitutional traditions. That principle must be zealously guarded against creeping incursions,” Manafort attorneys Kevin Downing and Thomas Zehnle wrote in the lawsuit, which was filed in the same venue — the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia — overseeing Mueller’s criminal case against both Manafort and former Trump 2016 campaign aide Rick Gates.”




Prosecutorial overreach is not new to special counsel investigations.

But Mueller’s hardball tactics have been worse than most.

He executed a no-knock search warrant on Manafort’s home and his agents searched his wife while she was still in her pajamas.

This humiliation was designed to intimidate Manafort into flipping on Trump.

But as this lawsuit shows, Manafort has no intention of turning on the President.

Instead, he is going to fight back.

We will keep you up to date on any new developments in this case.

  1. Why has no one tried to access the flight logs of the two pilots and planes? There must’ve been flight plans for these aircraft. The casual meeting at that out of the way airports seems awfully conspicuous to anyone with even just a little bit of brains. Chance meeting, very doubtful. Has anyone questioned the security detail? Casual meeting very very doubtful just to talk about grandchildren.
    Why at that remote tarmac. Nothing would have been said if a reporter had not observed the meeting.

  3. Johnny, all these rats who have lived under the carpet are now coming out against our President. Listen to this, ask any demonrat what religion they are affiliated with and im willing to say that most 95% of them will claim Catholic, a few will claim Christian yet take a hard look at each one and you will find deceit, deception, distortion and disobedience to their God. What does their fruit look like to you? Good or evil? God will not be denied without judgment coming.Hatred and lies are the make up of Jezebel, Laviathan, and lets not forget the python spirits. Thesebad evil spirits are embedded deeply in the dnc.The dnc will self destruct and indeed has already started. God’s Victory for mankind. I praise you Father amen.love you forever.

  4. President Trump this Investigation is all a Puff in the Gates of Hell and It should be stopped NOW!

  5. Here is what I don’t understand. Mueller, who is a democrat was appointed special prosecutor by a democrat, and has 12 democratic lawyers that worked for Hillary on his staff, all together there are 17 democrats. Their only job was to find Russian collusion, that they helped Trump win. They have not found a thing! NOW they go after anyone that is associated with Trump and are trying to get them to lie, which they won’t. Someone tell me why Hillary,Obama,Mueller,Comey are not being investigated.

  6. In 2009, Secretary of State Crooked Hillary sent FBI Director Robert Mueller to Moscow to deliver a sample of highly enriched uranium!

    Russian Collusion seems to be among those who are investigating our duly elected President!

    Mueller is a dirty cop!

    Thank God for President Trump!

    America First!

  7. MUELLER NEEDS TO SHOW A FULL ACCOUNTING OF WHERE ALL THOSE MILLIONS WENT! HOW MANY MILLION DID HE PAY HIMSELF?

    HOPEFULLY, WHITAKER WILL BE ABLE TO SHOW US WHERE OUR MONEY WENT, AND WHY!

    AMERICA FIRST,

  8. Thanks for your story. If Mueller and his puppets tried to enter my home, and also searched my wife, they would be welcomed by a 12 GA shotgun.

  9. Jeff Sessions is part of the swamp and has played us all from the beginning.
    Recuses himself and then refuses to resign
    Traitor!

  10. Jeff Sessions is part of the swamp and has played us all from the beginning.
    Recuses himself and then refuses to resign
    Doddering old traitor.
    Probably part of Podesta pizza crowd

  11. Representative Gohmert ripped FBI Director Mueller for ignoring that Boston mosque in the testimony regarding the investigation into the Boston Marathon bombings. Gohmert shredded FBI chief’s answers; Mueller’s only defense in not looking at that particular mosque was that all the mosques are part of their “Outreach”program to Muslims here in America and therefore not included in anti-terrorist investigations!!! Now that is the real case of PROFILING that excludes the jihadists! And that is how the two Boston jihadist brothers “escaped” the NSA and FBI attention. Mueller also did not know who is in overall charge of anti-terrorist programs at his own FBI. Note: since then there were more jihadist mass murders perpetrated in Orlando, Chattanooga, San Bernardino…

  12. why isn’t mueller gong after the people he has found doing illegal stuff FBI clinton obama instead of wasting time where he has nothing to justify his time he should lose his pay if he keep going in the direction he going if he doesn’t come up with someone to charge to pay for his time going after trump for over a year

  13. Sessions has been a real disappointment to me, I thought he would make a difference but I seems to. That he isn’t up for the job.

  14. When will Mueller ever turn the direction of his investigation to Hillary and Obama?

    Obama is DIRTY too.

  15. Attorney General Jeff Sessions needs to resign now and let the President nominate someone who will do the job of Attorney General instead of hiding under the desk because he’s afraid of doing the job he was nominated to do. And yes, before he resigns he needs to fire Mueller, Rosenstein and everyone else involved in this miscarriage of Justice.

  16. STIPULATION. IN REARGUARDS TO MUELLER AND HIS BANNED OF CRIMINALS < MUELLER IS TO PAY BACK EVERY DIME HE SPENT OF TAX PAYER MONEY FOR HIS BOGUS INVESTIGATIONS.
    HE IS A CRIMINAL >>
    PEOPLE ARE FED UP> AND HE IS NOTHING MORE THAN A LIBERAL CRIMINAL>> WE HAVE HAD ENOUGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. Those who commit crimes against the American people SHOULD be punished. Trying to interfere with elections is a major crime against citizens.

  18. You can blame Rosenstein for a big part of this mess, when he wrote the order, he added that the investigation could go further than Russia, if that’s where it took them. Sen Dianne Feinstein, told Mueller to follow other leads. She is also inspecting former FBI Director James Comey’s revelation that former AG Loretta Lynch asked him to downplay the nature of his investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails. Lynch was also responsible for letting Natalia Veselnitskaya who said she had no affiliation with The Kremlin or Putin, but worked with Obama’s Ambassador to Russia, Michael McFaul. Feinstein also told Mueller to follow where ever the investigation Led. John Grisham could have written this as a novel, it would be a $30.00 book. Such a bargain.

  19. This is a futile and desperate move by a guilty individual. Rosenstein ( who is a Trump appointee) approved the indictment of Manafort. Rosenstein obviously believes that the action taken by Mueller is within the mandate he created for Mueller. As the Department of Justice public information officer ( not the public information officer from Mueller’s office but the officer under the control and supervision of Sessions) commented, ” The lawsuit is frivolous…”

  20. If we had an EQUITABLE justice system , which we have NEVER had during the Obama reign of incompetence and fiscal and security oriented irresponsibility on the parts of Comey and Mueller who have long term ties to the Clintons and NEVER should have been appointed to be in any investigation of Trump and the so-called but NON-EXISTENT “Russian Dossier,” from which no evidence of wrongdoing by anyone in the Trump campaign has been proved; and since the expense is mounting still and adding to the debt the left created but refuses to address ( along with the FACT they lost the 2016 election), I truly hope Manafort goes after Mueller and the court system, already so leftist contaminated by the pitiful progressive parasites in Congress and the former Presidency, allows REAL Justice as we have not seen since before Obama’s election in 2008! After that, if Mueller loses his mind and his freedom to persecute since there is NOTHING to prosecute, attention will be switched to the tarmac meeting between Bill Clinton and former AG Loretta Lynch and if the Judicial Watch gets FOIA requests it files for, they may all wind up where they belong in this Vietnam Vet’s view; in prison! Perhaps we might even extend that courtesy to both Hillary and Barack as they too, Deserve it, and a REAL Justice Department will hopefully correct the shortcomings of the prior one in which there WAS NO JUSTICE AT ALL!

  21. Mueller has stolen enough money from the tax payers. He is a crook anyway. According to his thinking, whicvh is crooked as hell, he could actually investigate anybody who voted for Trump.

  22. Miandering Mueller, the political reincarnation of Stalin’s chief of security, who reportedly once declared, ” Give me a persons name, and I’ll find a crime.”

  23. Rosenstein hired his buddy Mueller so he could dig dirt on Trump or if non could be found, to fabricated anything that could be used to take Trump down. Rosenstein is up to his eyeballs in the cover up of the Uranium One deal, as is Mueller. Notice that the only eveidence of collusion is between the Clinton Campaign and the DNC colluding with Russian Agents on the fake Trump Dossier, and one the evidence pointed in that direction Mueller changed directions and went after former Trump Campaign members on unrelated charges. All persons from the Obama Administration who were involved on the Uranium One deal have committed High TREASON against the United States. There is all of the Collusion with Russia, Obama, Climton, the DNC, Lynch, Holder and many others, those are the crimes to be prosecuted.

  24. The only correct solution to this is the total dismissal of Mulehead and his entire team for what they are. A biased witch hunting team turned loose to overthrow Trump’s administration and him by the dumbassocrats! That’s all it ever was as there were NO limits ever set, he was given a carte blanch budget and freedom to investigate far outside the initial mandate. The only collusion is the dumbassocrats with Mulehead to falsify everything!

  25. Shouldn’t the firing be handled by Asst. AG Rosenstein, since he’s the one that hired Mueller? OR, perhaps AG Sessions should fire Rosenstein AND Mueller! That approach would make more sense. It appears, from other posts, that Rosenstein has “previous connections” to Mueller AND Comey and others in the DNC.

  26. mueller has over reached his authority many times over , he should show what he found and end this b/s. if he didn’t find any collusion by now he never will

  27. Hardcore DemonRATS don’t care about anything, but party. Even if it means total destruction of the planet, DemonRATS will always vote their own.

  28. Bingo. Mueller has the saddest gay face in the bath house.
    And I suspected that Comey liked men too, all of Obama’s administration is gay, including obama.

  29. Vicster those who mostly voted Democratic were mislead by the anti Trump media. This was quite evident during s just recent street interview on the recently passed tax.

  30. I would understand Mueller’s attempt to intimidate anyone that could lie against the President to avoid a make-up prosecution threat. It is one of scare tactics that any police detective can make in an interrogation. Can’t say it is a bad tactic but rather an useful way for the right suspects to spit out the truth.

    If Manafort has nothing to reveal any illegal activity, then he shouldn’t be worrying about it. Not sure what had been said between him and biased FBI agents. I must say that there are plenty of dirty agents working 24 hrs/ 365 days to protect their political party.

    Time to clean up the corrupted FBI.

  31. I’m 69 years old and have always been proud of this country. I’m not proud of what the left and the swamp is doing to it. I worry about my kids and grandkids. I can’t understand why voters that vote democrat can’t see what’s coming.

  32. I think Mueller’s attack on Trump is all based on Trump’s removal of Comey from the FBI. I remember Mueller looking at Comey in such a way that I couldn’t help but think…..these two guys are …..close.
