A federal judge is questioning whether Special Counsel Robert Mueller has exceeded his prosecutorial powers by bringing charges against individuals outside of his mandate to investigate the alleged Trump-Russia collusion. The judge also questioned whether the motive of Mueller’s charges are to get the defendants to turn against President Trump.
In this particular case, President Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, has filed a motion to dismiss Mueller’s criminal charges that have no association with the investigation into possible Trump-Russia collusion.
As reported by Zerohedge.com:
“District Judge T.S. Ellis, a Reagan appointee, in the Eastern District of Virginia said, Mueller shouldn’t have ‘unfettered power’ to prosecute over charges that have nothing to do with collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians.
‘I don’t see how this indictment has anything to do with anything the special prosecutor is authorized to investigate,’ Ellis said
Ellis said he’s concerned Mueller is only pursuing charges against Manafort (and presumably other individuals) to pressure them into turning on Trump.”
+ + Robert Mueller’s investigation has far exceeded its jurisdiction.
• Constitutional law expert Alan Dershowitz has repeatedly warned that Mueller is turning constitutional actions into crimes.
• Representative Ron DeSantis (R-FL) told Sean Hannity that Mueller and his investigators are “not trying to investigate a crime, they are trying to manufacture a process crime.”
• Rudy Giuliani, a member of President Trump’s legal team, told Fox News: “The basis of the [Trump-Russia collusion] case is dead… Sessions should step in and close it…. in the interest of justice.”
• Republican lawmakers have drafted eight articles of impeachment against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who oversees the Mueller investigation, following his refusal to turn over unredacted documents that outline the scope of the Mueller investigations.

P.S. President Trump lashed out against the “Witch Hunt” in a tweet, “There was no Collusion (it is a Hoax) and there is no Obstruction of Justice (that is a setup & trap). … Witch Hunt!” The House Intelligence Committee has already released a report that determined there was “no evidence that the Trump campaign colluded, coordinated, or conspired with the Russian government” during the 2016 election cycle. It’s time for the Mueller investigation to come to a close.
