Mueller Stretching To Link Paul Manafort To President Trump

Special Counsel Robert Mueller will apparently go to any length to tie President Donald Trump to any wrongdoing that was perpetrated by his former advisor, Paul Manafort. In ongoing actions and filings, the Special Counsel has come up with a nefarious link to the President’s campaign, but again, not to the President. It seems that Manafort needed some large loans approved that he was really not qualified for. There was this one banker, however, that wanted to be associated with the Trump campaign. Did the banker buy himself a position? It is all debatebale and you can read about it here.

As Written and Reported By Byron York for the Washington Examiner:

It’s often been observed that special counsel Robert Mueller, assigned to investigate alleged Trump-Russia collusion in the 2016 presidential campaign, has yet to charge anyone with a crime involving Trump-Russia collusion in the 2016 presidential campaign.

The biggest of Mueller’s indictments, that of one-time Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, has no connection at all to collusion. And until a few days ago, it appeared to have no connection to Donald Trump, either.

Trending: Has anyone noticed what is missing from the Mueller Investigation?

Now, though, Mueller has revealed why he believes the Manafort prosecution is related to the 2016 Trump campaign. It’s a small part, a very small part, of the overall charges against Manafort. And it has nothing to do with any actions by the candidate – now the president – himself.

Mueller’s revelation came in an argument he is having with the Manafort defense over what subjects can and cannot be discussed in front of jurors in Manafort’s upcoming trial. (Manafort is charged in both Virginia and the District of Columbia with various counts of bank fraud, tax evasion, and failure to register as a representative of foreign interests; the Virginia trial is scheduled to begin later…….
