WASHINGTON — President Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, sued the special counsel on Wednesday and asked a federal court to narrow his authority, escalating Republican efforts to discredit an investigation that has stretched longer than the White House expected.

The unusual move comes as Mr. Trump tries to portray the investigation as a politically motivated witch hunt that has cast a dark cloud over his administration and, in his view, the country.

The president said last week that he hoped the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, will treat him fairly. Mr. Trump’s lawyers have advised against directly criticizing Mr. Mueller, a Republican who is regarded as one of the premier law enforcement officials of his time. But with four former Trump campaign aides facing charges and no end to the investigation in sight, some of Mr. Trump’s allies have stepped up their attacks.

I'm honestly amazed that they've allowed it to go on this long.

Mueller has spent a year and millions of tax payer dollars and all he has so far is a bunch of parking tickets and perjury charges for a couple of literally whos

Anybody looking it at objectively will agree it's nothing but a partisan witch hunt.

>clinton hires foreign national for oppo research
>this is okay
>clinton lies to fbi about mishandling classified information
>this is okay
>multiple clinton aides lie to the fbi regarding knowledge of the server

Really makes you wonder why Republicans aren't dismantling the FBI as we speak considering the organization is clearly beyond redemption.

Do you understand how investigations work? Did you expect him to release his information as it went along for everyone to predict and react to?

Are you 12 years old or something?
>>
>>214497
/pol/ is the place for that kind of satire friend

>>214505
>Are you 12 years old or something?
yes so is nunes by the look of it

>Did you expect him to release his information as it went along for everyone to predict and react to?
Some of them actually thought he might.
>>
>>214505
There has been over a dozen leaks from the Mueller investigation. If they've been leaking about everything else, why wouldn't they leak something big?
>>
>>214497
> Hillary Hillary Hillary
Fucking idiot shill. Nobody likes that cunt anymore.
>>
>>214526
You don't know that Muller's team is the one leaking the info. Anyone they interview could also leak info.

Her losing the presidency wasn't her punishment for all the illegal things she did

>>214698
Well take a time machine back to 2016 when it actually mattered then. Nobody cares now except Trumpkins looking to move goalposts.

>Trumpkins

Do you not realize how much of an idiot you are?

Fuck off poltard. He was trying to be nice.

I feel like every Trump related insult was developed by a kindergarten teacher with a macaroni necklace and cheerio earrings lol. Trumpkin, trumpet, etc sound so silly and kinda forced

Kill yourself Magat.

Clearly soyboy is the pinnacle of wit.
>>
>>214728
Well yeah. Petty namecalling has been the staple of 'political discussion' on the entire spectrum since the race last year, so it's not surprising people desperately cling to such lowbrow tactics since it feels so gooooood and makes you feel righteous, even falsely so.

SHUT IT DOWN

This "B-B-But what about Hillary" bullshit is getting tiresome.
If Hillary and the Clintontariat did wrong then either they will eventually get what they deserve OR with every passing day she is relegated to history and goes back to being irrelevant.

But this is bullshit and intellectual cock-sucking. You cannot excuse one incident of malfeasance by pointing to the actions of another person.
If Trump and the Trumplets did wrong then they deserve to get fucked and they should not get a pass because Hillary was also crooked.
>>
>>214497
>clearly beyond redemption
Stop begging the question. There is no "clearly". That only exists in your head.
>>
>>214525
Then they are wrong. Just because someone has a mistaken idea does not make it true.
>>
>>214823
You can't seem to find anything he did that's wrong, and you're more than willing to investigate him for his entire presidency to validate your hatred of him
>>
>>214839
>investigate him
The investigation is into Russian interference in general.

If Trump wasn't involved he'll be fine.

Not looking good for his son-in-law.
>>
>>214844
It's not into Russian interference (that's a given) it's into collusion. And for some odd reason, they only investigate Trump and his cabinet, and any Russian connections on the left are shrugged off as conicidence or unimportant conspiracy theories.

This is "if you committed no crime, you won't mind if we search your house" nonsense. It's political fishing, they want Trump gone, and they need a scandal to do it.
>>
>>214839
>You can't seem to find anything
Unless you work for Mueller you have NO WAY of knowing if that is true. It is your wish but that does not make it true.
>>
>>214849
Mueller won't even provide the basis for starting the investigation. Apparently its not the dossier anymore.
>>
>>214847
>It's not into Russian interference (that's a given) it's into collusion.
No sweetie.

>(that's a given)
I'll grant you that though.
>>
>>214847
>(that's a given)
No it's not. That is just your opinion.
>they only investigate Trump and his cabinet
You don't know that. You have no idea what is going on behind closed doors.
>Russian connections on the left are shrugged off
Show me where the investgation has done this.
>"if you committed no crime, you won't mind if we search your house"
Are you saying that no warrants were obtained?
>they want Trump gone
Who are "they"? Are you pulling a Hillary? Talking about some vast conspiracy?

IDGAF about your politics but your post is shabby, lazy and wrong on so many levels.
>>
>>214858
Litterally every Intel agency recongnize Russia, China, etc "influence" our elections. RT? That's propoganda. It's a fucking no brainer.

Uranium One ie "conspiracy, don't look, etc" as well as John Podestas holdings in Russian oil companies are labeled as "muh Hillary" and pushed aside. Bidens son works in tandem with Ukrainian/Russian financial markets and is being investigated for fraud.

Yes they want Trump gone, and the reason is they have commited a laundry list of crimes and are worried he will expose them. Bush, Clinton, etc are all part of an established order of acceptable crime and corruption webs.

You are a fool, so whatever. Have fun believing whatever you want.

Why HASN'T Trump exposed them? Republicans control all three branches of government. Why are they still screaming and wailing about alleged crimes instead of, you know, fucking investigating them and coming up with some sort of report?

Same dumb kids in every thread just throwing insults and shitposting
>>
>>214881
Welp Hillarys case was reopened (again) today. It's tough to tell the Intel agencies to investigate people when they are in on it, or complicit in it
