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

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.

A Republican running for the U.S. House of Representatives in Oklahoma said he would "use" his Second Amendment if anyone treated his daughter the way President Trump treats women. Danny Stockstill, a Republican running for the vacant seat in Oklahoma’s 1st Congressional District, admitted that, while he approves of Trump’s job in office, he doesn’t want him to be a role model for his children. “So why are we so afraid to say, ‘There’s no way I want my son to act like [Trump]?´" Stockstill said during a Tuesday night forum, according to the Tulsa World. “If my daughter ever

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R_FL) went on with Lou Dobbs on Wednesday and called out Speaker Paul Ryan for defending the deep state and refusing to defend Republican congressional investigators. Earlier today Paul Ryan defended the Obama FBI for spying on the Trump campaign during the 2016 election. This was unbelievable. "Rep. Matt Gaetz: There is no defense today for Paul Ryan siding with the FBI and Department of Justice against those of us in the Congress who are working for transparency and accountability… We need the Speaker to be an institutionalist of the Congress and not to be a defender

The Justice Department signaled Wednesday in a letter to Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will not recuse himself from Special Counsel Robert Mueller´s Russia investigation unless department officials find it necessary. Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd wrote that Rosenstein "would recuse from all or part of any matter if recusal were deemed appropriate by Department officials who are informed about the matter. "Otherwise," Boyd continued, "[Rosenstein] has a responsibility to fulfill his oath to well and faithfully execute the duties of his office." Graham sent a letter to Rosenstein last

The curious case of Imran Awan, which sounds like an international spy thriller, is entering its third act. Awan was a congressional IT aide to Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., and he was finally fired just after he was arrested trying to fly to Pakistan last summer. Awan and his wife, Hina Alvi, were charged last summer with bank fraud. They now appear poised to strike a plea deal with the Department of Justice. (Snip) Sources tell me that the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force has been looking into this matter since well before Awan and his crew of Pakistani

Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, the candidate for governor who received the most votes in Tuesday’s California jungle primary, and his wife use dog crap bags emblazoned with the face of President Donald Trump according to tweets by the couple last month. Gavin Newsom, image via Twitter avatar. Jennifer Siebel Newsom tweeted on May 9 a photo of the bag with Trump’s face in front of the couple’s dog with the message, “What do you think of Max’s new poop bag?” (Snip) Gavin Newsom responded two hours later with three smiling poop emojis.

Melinda Gates has decided to enter the venture capital world by sending her money to people based at least partly on their sex and skin color, she said in a recent Fortune interview. “It’s been incredibly disappointing to watch how few women-led businesses are getting funded,” Gates said. “Ultimately, if we want more innovation and better products, we’ve got to put more money behind women and minorities. That wasn’t happening, so I decided to step in and see what I could do to help a little bit.” Here are other portions of her interview where Gates specifically says some criteria

Attacks On National Security Council’s

Posted By: KarenJ1- 6/5/2018 7:48:45 PM     Post Reply
The rhetorical attacks on incoming National Security Council Executive Secretary Fred Fleitz (the author’s former colleague) have been shrill and ineffective. Conservatives have rallied to Fleitz’ defense, bolstered in part by Fleitz’s long history of work as a Central Intelligence Agency analyst, State Department official, and House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence staffer, along with his solid reputation working on Iran and nonproliferation-related issues. According to Trump administration insiders, the White House blames Obama allies and Iran deal advocates for ginning up the non-controversy, and there’s no indication of a willingness to surrender the scalp of a long-time national security

Former CIA Director John Brennan continued Tuesday to criticize President Trump’s performance at the Helsinki summit, saying Mr. Trump could have potentially risked intelligence capabilities during his private meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin and the intel community might begin to withhold intelligence from Mr. Trump. In light of Mr. Trump’s comments about the intelligence community, Mr. Brennan said “there very well might be” a shift in the covert community to “withhold vital intelligence” in order to protect that information. “Dan Coats and Gina Haspel need to be on top of their game now and speak truth to power,” he

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney tore into President Trump on Monday after Trump challenged the intelligence community´s assessment that Russia meddled in the 2016 election, calling Trump´s behavior "disgraceful and detrimental to our democratic principles." Romney´s comments came hours after Trump held a joint news conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland, in which he questioned whether Russia was behind efforts to meddle in the 2016 election. "President Trump´s decision to side with Putin over American intelligence agencies is disgraceful and detrimental to our

Chicago may soon become the largest municipality in the U.S. to test a universal basic income program. Chicago alderman Ameya Pawar recently proposed legislation that would provide 1,000 families with a $500 monthly stipend -- no questions asked. The bill already has the backing of the majority of city lawmakers, and Pawar hopes to soon work with Mayor Rahm Emanuel to implement the pilot program, The Intercept reported. “Nearly 70 percent of Americans don’t have $1,000 in the bank for an emergency,” Pawar told the outlet. “UBI could be an incredible benefit for people who are working and are having

Former FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday said “history has its eyes on us” and encouraged Americans to vote for Democrats in the upcoming midterm elections. Comey, who was fired by President Donald Trump in May 2017, issued a tweet urging Americans to snub Republicans this November. “This Republican Congress has proven incapable of fulfilling the Founders’ design that ‘Ambition must … counteract ambition,’” tweeted the former FBI director, a longtime supporter of Republicans. “All who believe in this country’s values must vote for Democrats this fall.

President Trump has now been in office a year and a quarter. President Trump’s results when compared to those of President Obama at the same time are stunning. In every economic measurement, President Trump far out-performs President Obama. The mainstream media and Democrat Party continue to smear President Trump with the fake Russia collusion narrative. In doing so they also continue to ignore President Trump’s many accomplishments. When compared to Obama [and most presidents], President Trump’s efforts to shore up the economy are historic. President Trump’s economy is just plain on fire! Barack Obama was the worst economic president since

A White House stenographer says she resigned over the Trump administration´s lack of respect for her office after President Trump reduced the roles of the White House position. Beck Dorey-Stein, who worked as a stenographer for the White House during the second half of the Obama administration, told CNN´s New Day on Wednesday that Trump´s refusal to allow stenographers in the room for meetings and interviews with some journalists crossed a line. "I quit because I couldn´t be proud of where I worked anymore," Dorey-Stein said. "I felt like President Trump was lying to the American people, and also ... not even
