Federal Judge Hears Manafort’s Complaints: Raises Doubts on Scope of Mueller’s Witch Hunt

On Thursday, a federal judge raised doubts on Mueller’s scope as Manafort’s lawyers argued Rosenstein never gave the special counsel specific guidelines.

Instead, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein gave Mueller permission to rove around, effectively creating a Soviet-style witch hunt of ‘show me the man, I’ll show you the crime.’ 

Manafort has been charged with crimes that date back to 2006 and have NOTHING TO DO with Russian collusion.

Mueller keeps the special counsel open even though there never was a crime to investigate and there never was collusion between Donald Trump and the Russians.

The federal judge did not issue a ruling on Thursday after hearing arguments from both sides.
