Since the day it started, Americans were outraged over the Mueller “special investigation.”
Yet we still have to put up with this ridiculous probe. Mueller has used it as an excuse to go after anyone remotely connected with Trump. He’s gone after lawyers, former campaign partners, anyone that might have some dirt. Clearly, he’s trying to find some way—any way—to take down the lawfully elected POTUS.
Things might be turning around, though. After Rudy Giuliani joined Trump’s team, he announced the investigation must end. Now, a federal judge is weighing in on the matter. His decision might spell doom for Mueller and every swamp dweller.
A federal judge on Friday sharply criticized Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s criminal case in Virginia against President Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, and openly questioned whether Mueller exceeded his prosecutorial powers by bringing it.
“I don’t see what relationship this indictment has with anything the special counsel is authorized to investigate,” U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III in the Eastern District of Virginia said…
At a tense hearing at the federal courthouse in Alexandria, Virginia, the judge said Mueller should not have “unfettered power” in his Russia probe and that the charges against Manafort did not arise from the investigation into Moscow’s alleged meddling in the 2016 U.S. election.
“It’s unlikely you’re going to persuade me the special counsel has unfettered power to do whatever he wants,” said Ellis, who was appointed to the bench by Republican President Ronald Reagan.
Since is pretty significant. Obviously, Mueller’s team hasn’t found evidence of collusion with Russia. That probably became clear months into the investigation. Yet they’ve dragged it out, to abuse what power this special consul has. Why? Because they are corrupt D.C. swamp dwellers, who want to destroy the President.
Manafort’s case has nothing to do with investigating Russia. The alleged charges have to do with things he did years before the election. They are in no way connected to the Trump campaign. So why did Mueller’s people target him?
It would be like police who are investigating a murder, using the same warrants to bust someone else, for another crime.
The judge’s comments can quickly lead to a ruling. That might throw out Manafort’s case. From there, they might question the entire Mueller probe might. Congress and the judicial system can demand hard proof from the special counsel to justify this on-going charade. Since they can’t provide evidence, it will have to be shut down.
It’s about time.
