    Paul Manafort Sues Special Counsel Robert Mueller, DOJ Over Russia Probe

    https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry...ushpmg00000009

    WASHINGTON — Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort filed suit against special counsel Robert Mueller, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and the Department of Justice on Wednesday ― a suit that experts quickly said has little chance of success.

    In his complaint, Manafort alleges that Mueller’s investigation “diverged from its focus on alleged collusion between the Russian government and President Trump’s campaign.”
    I guess Clinton should sue Ken Staar, since lying about sex had nothing to do with Whitewater?

    That's an old canard. He didn't "lie about sex," he committed perjury in court and was also found in contempt. That's why his law license was suspended and why he later surrendered it.

    And it's Ken Starr, not 'Staar.'

    Thanks for the spelling lesson. Allow me to provide you with a grammar lesson: Perjury means lying.

    I stand by my opinion. Sex was way outside of the scope of Whitewater about which the Trump worshippers in this thread are complaining.

    Perjury is perjury and you fixate on what he perjured himself about instead?

    I can see you're pretty angry about the lying about sex and persist in ignoring the point of my original post. Not much I can do about that. Please feel free to rant on, though.

    How many men have you met who would be honest about cheating on their wives in public, where their wives could hear it?
    What kind of a man is a man who has not left this world a better place?

    Speculating I was experiencing a certain emotion while typing doesn't validate your contention that it was about "lying about sex" as opposed to perjury in a court of law.

    This isn't about simply lying as this person is trying to imply. It's about perjury in a court of law, as well as contempt of court.

    If it was irrelevant, the questions wouldn't have been allowed. However, the questioning about Lewinski was related to a sexual harassment case -- and therefore pretty relevant. I'm sure most people can understand him lying to his wife, but this was lying under oath, and he knew better.

    I think he should have. These special investigators go fishing and determine the fates of duly elected officials and we treat this as some kind of “normal”. Give them six months to put up or shut up, or convince Congress why they should keep investigating for six more months.
