CRACKS IN THE CASE: Mueller Probe UNDER FIRE from Federal Judges

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.07.18

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s never-ending investigation into Trump-Russia collusion is beginning to show cracks in the case, with two federal judges rebuking the ongoing probe as expanding well beyond its original “scope.”

Over the course of the last week, Mueller’s team has faced multiple legal challenges from two federal judges regarding the legal case against Paul Manafort as well as 13 Russian nationals accused of election meddling.

“You’re now using [that material] … as a means of persuading Mr. Manafort to provide information,” said U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III Friday, adding the special counsel’s office was hoping to bring about “prosecution or impeachment or whatever.”

Over the weekend, another judge blocked Mueller’s request to delay hearings surrounding 13 Russian nationals; asking for more time to follow additional leads.

The President weighed-in on the legal challenges Monday, saying Democrats are starting to learn that there is a “court system in place that actually protects people from injustice.”

MUELLER MADNESS: Federal Judge Says Mueller ‘LYING’ to Target Trump

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.04.18

A federal judge issued a stark rebuke to the special counsel’s office Friday, accusing Mueller’s team of “lying” to expand its investigation into Russian collusion in an attempt to deliberately target the President.

According to Fox News, US District Judge T.S. Ellis lashed-out at Mueller’s office during a hearing for former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort; saying the special counsel was using Manafort to dig-up information on the President.

“You don’t really care about Mr. Manafort,” said the judge. “You really care about what information Mr. Manafort can give you to lead you to Mr. Trump and an impeachment, or whatever.”

Ellis then demanded the team release the “scope memo,” a document outlining the initial “scope” of the investigation after the appointment of Robert Mueller to lead the probe into Russian collusion.

“We don’t want anyone with unfettered power,” he added

“He summed up the argument of the Special Counsel’s Office as, “We said this was what [the] investigation was about, but we are not bound by it and we were lying,’” writes Fox.

MUELLER MAYHEM: Federal Judge REJECTS Special Counsel’s Request for Delay

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.07.18

A second federal judge flat-out rebuked special counsel Robert Mueller over the weekend; rejecting his request to delay a court hearing in a criminal case surrounding Russian election meddling using social media.

According to Politico, Judge Dabney Friedrich issued a “brief order” Saturday that denied Mueller’s request to delay the scheduled hearing Friday evening; offering no explanation and setting the stage for a high-stake showdown between the special counsel’s office and 13 Russian nations indicted for interfering in the 2016 election.

The judge’s decision comes just hours after another federal judge rebuked Mueller’s team during hearings in the case against former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort; accusing the special counsel’s office of using Manafort to launch “impeachment” procedures against the President.

“You don’t really care about Mr. Manafort,” said the judge. “You really care about what information Mr. Manafort can give you to lead you to Mr. Trump and an impeachment, or whatever.”
