    Judge: Mueller Can Indict Manafort

    A federal judge ruled against Paul Manafort’s attempt to dismiss charges brought against him in Washington, DC, on Tuesday, writing that the charges fell “squarely” within special counsel Robert Mueller’s authority — which means Manafort is headed for trial this year. “The indictment will not be dismissed, and the matter will proceed to trial,” Judge Amy Berman Jackson wrote. You can read her full ruling here. Mueller’s team has indicted Manafort on five charges in DC related to money laundering and not registering as a foreign agent. They’ve also indicted him, separately, on 18 more tax and financial charges in Virginia, which have been brought before a different judge.

    Manafort filed motions to dismiss the charges against him in both DC and Virginia court, arguing that Mueller overreached his mandate. His team argued their position before Judge T.S. Ellis III in Virginia earlier this month, and Ellis sounded at least potentially sympathetic. Ellis hasn’t yet ruled on the matter. But now, his DC counterpart, Jackson, has — and she didn’t buy Manafort’s argument at all, for several reasons.

    We don’t know how Ellis will ultimately rule. But Jackson concluded that such concerns aren’t really relevant. “The regulations place no boundaries on who can be investigated or what charges can be brought — what they address is who decides who the prosecutor will be,” she wrote.

    She continued: “The Acting Attorney General made that decision and confirmed it in writing, so the defendant has no grounds for complaint.”

    Well this puts this "issue" to bed. The trial will start on Sept. 17th.

    I sure hope this one goes to trial. Manafort is not a good person, but neither is Mueller and his team. I can't wait for the testimony on the home raid early in the morning with guns drawn and Manafort's wife being manhandled by Mueller's team in her own house. The optics are horrible.

    How in the world is Mueller not a good person? Do you even know his background? You really should look it up. He is, by all accounts, a highly honorable man according to multiple sources that are NOT right wing.

    But I like that he apparently strikes fear in Trump supporters over and over again with how often they trash talk on him

    Good luck to them with that.

    You're just like Trump. You think this is just another public relations campaign. It isn't. It's a criminal investigation that has already produced prosecutions and guilty pleas. Flinging feces at the Justice Department and the FBI won't make this go away.

    I don't give two shits about the non-Russian Collusion witch hunt tangents. If they get bad guys, fine, but it is pretty meaningless as it's a one sided affair. This shit never happens to Democrats as they skate by like the IRS and Hillary Clinton's Email staff that got the 5th and then didn't testify.

    Actually it is "just another public relations campaign". Impeachment is political at the end of the day. If the side that attempted it is dirty in the process; it just doesn't go down without great damage to that side, which in this case is the establishment and Democrats. I am all for the impeachment as the damage to the Left will be uuuuuuge.

    Indeed. They almost make Manafort out to be the criminal he appears to be.

    Wow - your conflating very different things here.

    But we get it - apparently if it hurts the Democrats.

    More party over country for you I guess?

    Yeah, I know what you're all about. Partisan hackery is what you're all about. You have no regard whatsoever for objective truth.
