A grand jury witness serving in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation is speaking out against what appears to be a never-ending witch hunt, according to The Daily Caller.
In an op-ed published on the conservative website, Ronn Torossian revealed Mueller’s secret tactics and operations, writing that, “enough is enough.”
Torossian, a public relations executive, said he testified before Mueller’s grand jury on Dec. 15, 2017, in Washington, D.C.
He said he was of interest to Mueller because he was approached in 2012 by Paul Manafort, President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, and Rick Gates, an associate to Manafort, about doing public relations work for the Ukrainian government.
Torossian said he rejected the deal when he was reportedly told by Manafort and Gates not to report the work to the Department of Justice, which is required by FARA laws.
The Foreign Agents Registration Act is a law requiring agents who work on behalf of foreign powers in a political capacity to disclose their relationship, activities, and finances with the U.S. government.
Fully cooperating and eager to testify that he did nothing wrong, Torossian testified in front of Mueller’s grand jury. But when he began fielding questions from Mueller’s team, he immediately knew the investigation had nothing to do with Trump or collusion.
Both men have been indicated on a series of tax crimes, all of which are nowhere near connected to Trump.
“This investigation feels like a witch hunt, Torossian wrote.
“It is a dangerous, slippery slope, and one which has nothing to do with the mission of the special counsel investigation, which is supposedly to explore links or coordination between Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and the Russian government,” he added.
Torossian wrote that he couldn’t fathom why Mueller has unfettered powers to use tens of millions of taxpayer dollars to charge people for crimes that are completely unrelated to what he was appointed to the investigation: alleged Trump-Russia collusion.
“What in the world does this have to do with Russians meddling in the election?” he asked. “Enough is enough.”
Mueller indicting Manafort and Gates for tax crimes that happened years ago — and well-before they briefly worked for Trump’s campaign — is clearly outside the scope of his job.
With unfettered power and a team that can investigate whatever they want, many Americans agree that enough is enough.
