    Manafort sues Mueller, Justice Department over Russia probe

    WASHINGTON — Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort filed a lawsuit against Special Counsel Robert Mueller, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and the U.S. Justice Department in federal court on Wednesday, arguing that the federal probe that charged him is operating outside the law.
    .
    .
    .
    Manafort's lawsuit claimed that Mueller should not have scrutinized his lobbying work and tax filings in 2014 in connection to a probe into the 2016 election. The lawsuit also reveals that Manafort voluntarily met with Justice Department prosecutors and FBI agents in 2014 to discuss his overseas lobbying work.

    The court filing asks that a federal judge place an injunction on Rosenstein, Mueller and the Justice Department to restrict them from performing their duties.

    He should be right, and he might find a judge to rule in his favor, but the work of THE HATCHET MAN (My term for Mueller..which I claim is the real job he was hired to do)) will not be impeded by those lower judges I spect, and I cant imagine SCOTUS getting in his way now that they are primarily a political body rather than a legal body.

    So he met with the FBI and Justice Department then, they gave him the OK, and then decided to turn around and prosecute him. Reminds me of when Jeff Sessions got advice from the FBI about how to disclose his meetings with Russians, they advised him that he didn't have to disclose, and then they retroactively leaked info so that he'd recuse himself.

    The ends justify the means of course, this is 2018, and our justice system is crappola.

    This will be interesting.
    It is going to depend on the judge.

    People have said muller was going outside the scope of his investigation and so do a lot of other people.
    It is just how far will the court allow him to go.

    If he the state department cpgave him clearance in 2014 then nothin he did was illegal for 2016.
