Special counsel Robert Mueller filed a request on Wednesday for 150 blank subpoenas in the case against Paul Manafort, according to the Washington Examiner. The subpoenas reveal very little and only request the individuals to testify on July 25 — another sign of Mueller’s never ending witch hunt.
Mueller wants the witnesses to testify about accusations against Manafort from decades ago (most liberals do not even know), which has nothing to do with alleged Russia collusion. This is exactly why a majority of the country doesn’t support his investigation.
Manafort, who briefly served as President Donald Trump‘s campaign manager during the 2016 presidential election, has become a top target for Mueller’s witch hunt and smear campaign.
In Virginia, Manafort has been charged with various bank and tax fraud violations, which allegedly occurred in the mid 2000s. Mueller wants to subpoena witnesses to testify about Manafort’s business dealings in Ukraine from the mid to late 2000s. He allegedly didn’t report all of his income and tried to avoid paying taxes.
Mueller’s latest request follows another stunt he pulled last week, where he asked U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson — who oversees a second case against Manafort — to revoke Manafort’s million bail and throw him in jail for allegedly tampering with witnesses in the case.
On Wednesday, Mueller requested that Jackson have Manafort arrested, but she had other ideas. Jackson not only denied Mueller’s request, she ordered the special counsel to immediately reveal the names of people and organizations he claims acted as unregistered agents with Manafort. She ordered Mueller to stop acting secretly and reveal the evidence he claims to have by Friday.
As detailed by Conservative Daily Post, Mueller indicted Manafort on a slew of tax and bank fraud charges from before he was involved with the Trump campaign. Manafort argues the charges against him are well-beyond the scope of Mueller’s job description, which is supposed to find so-called collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election.
Mueller, who was appointed just over one year ago, has a specific job description outlining what he is supposed to be investigating: alleged Trump-Russia collusion.
If Manafort broke the law by committing bank fraud, tax evasion, or any other provable crimes, many would agree he should face those charges and have his day in court. But that has nothing to do with Mueller, his office, or why he was appointed.
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.
So, why are taxpayers stuck footing the bill for his witch hunt? His office is leaking at historic levels, he’s indicting people for alleged crimes that occurred decades ago, and he hasn’t found any evidence of collusion.
When does it end?
