Judge Rules Mueller Must Identify Unnamed Figures In Manafort Case
As reported by UPI, U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson ordered the special counsel’s office to give Manafort’s lawyers the list of secret identities by Friday. Mueller claims the unidentified sources worked with Manafort to carry out an illegal money laundering scheme involving Ukraine. Mueller is fighting it, saying that it would be bad for the people who aren’t indicted.
Jackson also ordered Mueller to give Manafort’s legal team the identities of all other secret sources the special counsel claims Manafort tried to influence, which led to Mueller accusing Manafort of witness tampering last week.
Mueller was scheduled to be in court on Friday to answer for new charges that he tried to speak with witnesses about the case.
Mueller wanted the judge to revoke Manafort’s million bail and throw him in jail, but the hearing has been pushed back, given the judge apparently has grown tired of Mueller’s antics and refusal to be transparent.
Why is Mueller charging Manafort for crimes completely unrelated to alleged Russia collusion?
Mueller has been leading his witch hunt for a year, and has not produced a shred of evidence against Trump pertaining to any illegal activities or collusion with Russia. He is basically trying to save face by indicting anyone or anything, including a Russian company that didn’t even exist during the election.
Jackson demanding Mueller hand over this secret contacts immediately shows that even liberal judges are growing tired of the special counsel’s antics.
