I have a question for the Judge that questioned Mueller"s motives. [View all]

Judge Ellis accused Mueller's team of trying to get Manafort to "flip" on the trump. If the trump has done nothing wrong, how can Manafort "flip" on him. How can Mueller's team get anything on Donald Trump if he has done nothing wrong? What type of Judge would make such comments unless he thought someone was guilty of a crime? Obviously, the Judge does not believe Donald Trump is innocent.

“I don’t see what relationship this indictment has with anything the special counsel is authorized to investigate,” Ellis said.

Dreeben reportedly argued that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein provided them broad authority to pursue any criminal activity they discovered in the course of investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Ellis was unconvinced, pointing out that some of the relevant information in Manafort’s case came from an earlier Department of Justice investigation, not the special counsel’s probe, according to Fox News.

The judge then proceeded to summarize the prosecution’s case: “We said this was what the investigation was about but we are not bound by it and we were lying,” he said. “C’mon Man!”
