Paul Manafort Sues Special Counsel Robert Mueller, DOJ Over Russia Probe

Paul Manafort Sues Special Counsel Robert Mueller, DOJ Over Russia Probe --Trump's former campaign chairman alleges the investigation has 'diverged from its focus.' | 03 Jan 2018 | Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort filed suit against special counsel Robert Mueller, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and the Department of Justice on Wednesday -- a suit that experts quickly said has little chance of success. In his complaint, Manafort alleges that Mueller's investigation "diverged from its focus on alleged collusion between the Russian government and President Trump's campaign." "The investigation of Mr. Manafort is completely unmoored from the Special Counsel's original jurisdiction to investigate 'any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump,'" the complaint reads. "It has instead focused on unrelated, decade-old business dealings -- specifically, Ukraine political campaign consulting activities of Mr. Manafort."
