Robert Mueller is going all in on his quest to remove Donald Trump from office.
The special counsel made that clear with a bombshell court filing.
And what happened next left Donald Trump speechless.
Robert Mueller Makes Surprise Court Filing
When Robert Mueller secured a plea deal from Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, anti-Trump forces thought it was curtains for the President.
Manafort’s business ties to Russia made him a prime suspect in the collusion case.
But reports quickly surfaced that Manafort was not giving Mueller’s team what they were after.
The special counsel wanted evidence – even if it was fabricated – that linked Trump to Russia collusion.
So Mueller and his team filed a motion demanding the judge in the Manafort case move right to sentencing.
Mueller’s gang of Democrat prosecutors argued in their motion that:
After signing the plea agreement, Manafort committed federal crimes by lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Special Counsel’s Office on a variety of subject matters, which constitute breaches of the agreement. The government will file a detailed sentencing submission to the Probation Department and the Court in advance of sentencing that sets forth the nature of the defendant’s crimes and lies, including those after signing the plea agreement herein.
But Manafort’s legal team fought back.
They declared that Manafort was nothing but truthful in his interviews with investigators.
Mueller’s filing noted that and argued that the judge should move ahead with sentencing.
The prosecutors – led by pro-Clinton cheerleader Andrew Weissman – wrote:
After signing the plea agreement, Manafort met with the government on numerous occasions and answered the government’s questions. Manafort has provided information to the government in an effort to live up to his cooperation obligations. He believes he has provided truthful information and does not agree with the government’s characterization or that he has breached the agreement. Given the conflict in the parties’ positions, there is no reason to delay the sentencing herein, and he asks the Court to set a sentencing date in this matter.
Donald Trump Responds To Mueller’s Abuse Of Power
Manafort is not the first witness Mueller pressured to lie.
Investigative journalist Jerome Corsi backed out of a plea deal with Mueller because he revealed the special counsel wanted him to commit a felony.
Mueller and his mob of Democrat pit bulls wanted Corsi to sign a false statement where Corsi would lie about passing information from WikiLeaks to the Trump campaign.
Trump called out Mueller for his corruption and bullying tactics on social media.
The President tweeted:
The Phony Witch Hunt continues, but Mueller and his gang of Angry Dems are only looking at one side, not the other. Wait until it comes out how horribly & viciously they are treating people, ruining lives for them refusing to lie. Mueller is a conflicted prosecutor gone rogue….
….The Fake News Media builds Bob Mueller up as a Saint, when in actuality he is the exact opposite. He is doing TREMENDOUS damage to our Criminal Justice System, where he is only looking at one side and not the other. Heroes will come of this, and it won’t be Mueller and his…
….terrible Gang of Angry Democrats. Look at their past, and look where they come from. The now $30,000,000 Witch Hunt continues and they’ve got nothing but ruined lives. Where is the Server? Let these terrible people go back to the Clinton Foundation and “Justice” Department!
