Former Trump Campaign Chairman Paul Manafort has delivered the first counter blow in the Robert Mueller Investigation. Manafort today filed suit against The Department of Justice, Special Counselor Robert Mueller, and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
The Paperwork claims that the Special Counsel’s office intentionally targeted Manafort, eventually indicting him on charges that are completely unrelated to the allegations the Trump Campaign colluded with Russia to steal the election from Hillary Clinton.
Manafort’s Attorney said, “The Investigation of Mr. Manafort is completely unmoored from the Special Counsel’s original jurisdiction to investigate any links and/or coordination between Russian Government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump.”
He continued, “The actions of The Department of Justice and Mr. Rosenstein in issuing the Appointment Order, and Mr. Muellers’s actions pursuant to the authority the Order granted him, were arbitrary, capricious, and not in accordance with the law.” says the Court Filings of Manafort’s Legal Team.
