Special Counsel Robert Mueller charged former Trump Presidential Campaign Chairman Paul Manafort for being involved in Ukrainian politics. But a newly resurfaced photo exposes Mueller for doing the exact same thing, according to Zero Hedge.
Last week, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein released a memo revealing that he directed Mueller to look into allegations that Manafort was tied to illegal activity involving “the Ukrainian government before and during the tenure of President Viktor Yanukovych.”
The memo makes no mention of Mueller’s involvement in Ukrainian politics, specifically with Yanukovych.
In 2013, Mueller worked with former CIA Director John Brennan, Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain, and other European Union partners to lead a coup to overthrow the Yanukovych government.
Mueller was even photographed shaking hands, smiling, and appearing very friendly with Yanukovych during a meeting.
Below is just one photo of Mueller and Yanukovych, which was posted to Twitter on Friday by conservative commentator Jack Posobiec.

Earlier this year, Manafort was charged with various tax crimes related to work he did in Ukraine in 2013 and years prior.
So Mueller charged Manafort for working with Yanukovych when he was literally doing the exact same thing.
This is just one of many explosive reports involving Mueller’s past that has led many to call his Russia investigation into President Donald Trump a “witch hunt.”
In 2009, Mueller was the head of the FBI when former President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sold Russia 20 percent of the United States’ uranium.
In 2013, Mueller also visited Moscow prior to his trip to Ukraine, which is reportedly when he took the photo with Yanukovych.
Many Americans are reasonably questioning how Mueller can charge Manafort for business dealings in Ukraine and Russia when Mueller appeared to be doing the exact same thing.
