Mueller Is Investigating Manafort to Get Him to Turn Against Trump


Reuters reports that Robert Mueller is now investigating money laundering accusations against President Trump and Paul Manafort who briefly served as his campaign manager. They are trying to compel Manafort to turn state’s evidence.

The investigators hope to push him [Paul Manafort] to cooperate with their probe into possible collusion between Trump’s campaign and Russia, two sources with direct knowledge of the investigation said.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team is examining Manafort’s financial and real estate records in New York as well as his involvement in Ukrainian politics, anonymous officials told Reuters. They’re hoping to find some crime they can charge him with to get him to turn against Trump.

Keep in mind, there is no evidence that a crime has been committed – NONE! This is a fishing expedition.

From 2006 to 2013, Manafort bought three NY properties in cash, one was in Trump Tower, he then took out mortgages on the same properties. Some agents say it’s a tactic to hide the origin of funds.

Trump wasn’t a candidate then but they’re after Manafort to get Trump.

Rob Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, allowed Mueller to investigate anything and everything and to whatever degree he wants. He put no limits on Mueller. Since this is not a criminal investigation and there has been no evidence of a crime as of Comey’s tenure, Rosenstein needs to immediately limit the counterintelligence e investigation.

This is the reason Trump is angry with Sessions. Sessions left him in the hands of people likely engaged in a witch hunt.

Almost every person Mueller hired is a Democrat and several are Hillary donors. One worked for the Clinton Foundation. An astounding 99.8% of the donations by employees in Mueller’s firm donated to Hillary. In addition, Mueller was rejected by Trump for the FBI job and Mueller is a close friend of Comey’s.

The Reuters sources are hoping to find something on Manafort to help convince him to flip.

“If Mueller’s team can threaten criminal charges against Manafort, they could use that as leverage to convince him to cooperate,” said one of the sources.

Manafort’s spokesman, Jason Maloni, said, “Paul Manafort is not a cooperating witness. Once again there is no truth to the disinformation put forth by anonymous sources and leakers.”

This is another leak by anonymous sources meant to destroy Donald Trump. If this is a leak from Mueller’s team, Mueller needs to be shut down immediately.

Andy McCarthy thinks the investigation has to be severely restricted but Ben Stein went further. Stein said they are out to “kill” Trump politically and perhaps put him in jail. Both say there is no basis for this investigation.

Sara, Mueller is not investigating anything “Russian.” I’m glad you pointed out the overwhelming percentage of Hillary supporters and donors to her campaign that Mueller hired to work with him to bring President Trump down. The fact that those folks in any way were involved in supporting Hillary is more than enough for President Trump to fire his a$$ and stop this circus right this second. I’m having difficulty grasping why he’s allowing it to continue. I understand the blistering he’d get for firing Mueller, but come on man. I’d expose Mueller for the fraud he is. I also realize the media would eat it up like the blood suckers they are. I’m also getting frustrated that Obama hold-overs are still working in crucial areas of government … example: john koskinen … why in the world is this arrogant fool still around? President Trump isn’t going to get a fair shake from the media no matter what he does. So IMHO go for the gold, wipe the Obama stench of corruption clean regardless.
I just wrote an article in which I put forth my take on this Mueller investigation. I think he’s not investigating anything. I think he hired the Hillary people to cover the crap which no doubt will surface as the farce continues. I think Mueller is simply focusing on Trump’s tax records to be used against him in 2020. The Democrats have no one who can beat Trump should he choose to run for re-election. Finding any “dirt” is their only hope to secure a victory.
Take good care Sara and have a great Sunday!

It’s certainly apparent Mueller will not investigate any of the leaks surrounding HIS leadership. If he was an “ethical” person he would have called a press conference denouncing these leaks and taking steps to mitigate them. One has to question Why he is ignoring this, Or is he actually sanctioning it. By being complicit in the leaks it signals an agenda. Should a Special Prosecutor have an ulterior agenda. One can speculate and suggest it is MUELLER who is the Russian agent, being the supposed purpose of Russia is to “undermine” the workings of Government.

What is even more specious are the Republicans leaders in Congress, namely Senator Burr. He accuses Nunes of “creating” the unmasking scandal and insinuates the charge is unfounded. He admits there was unmasking but it was probably legal. He says that it needs to be “explained”, or should we say “covered up”. It is indisputable that stories were published from unmasked information and to whitewash that is a dereliction of duty on the part of Congress.
