Trump says Mueller's 'gone rogue' after dumping Manafort plea deal

Trump says Mueller's 'gone rogue' after dumping Manafort plea deal

He is the highest-profile witness the Mueller team has charged with crimes as they proceed with the Russian Federation investigation, which was opened to uncover any evidence members of the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation to sway the 2016 presidential election.

Sending out a second tweet, Trump continued that "The Fake News Media builds Bob Mueller up as a Saint, when in actuality he is the exact opposite".

The special counsel is "doing TREMENDOUS damage to our Criminal Justice System", he said.

Rudy Giuliani, who represents Trump in the Russian Federation probe, said Mueller's team had crossed an ethical line between a search for the truth and exerting too much pressure on Manafort.

The filing says Manafort does not agree with prosecutors' assertion that he has lied. But the announcement raised the possibility that President Donald Trump could again see Manafort as an ally and antagonist of Mueller, and consider pardoning him.

Since pleading guilty, Manafort had met with prosecutors almost a dozen times, and though members of Mueller's team have been asking him about a wide range of topics, they're "not getting what they want", a source with knowledge of the discussions told ABC News. The now $30,000,000 Witch Hunt continues and they've got nothing but ruined lives. "Let these bad people go back to the Clinton Foundation and "Justice" Department!", Trump said in the posting.

What do Croatia need to win the UEFA Nations League?
The team conceded six goals in its last two matches after outscoring opponents 12-2 in the first matches under Luis Enrique. At Barca there are plays that are rehearsed and trained and I could see that England also had those plays very well-worked.

Trump believes the FBI should have seized the DNC's server as part of its investigation, despite the fact that investigators do not need it to obtain the information they need.

Of course this is all just speculation, and perhaps Manafort has other reasons for allegedly lying to investigators.

Buzzfeed News adds: "Prosecutors said they were done working with Manafort, and asked the judge to set a date for sentencing". Except for one aspect of their bank fraud case, in which Manafort appeared to dangle access to the Trump campaign in exchange for a bank loan, the cases did not publicly describe Manafort's work as campaign chairman. "You can expect the judge, who has already had some harsh words for Manafort when he violated his bond conditions, tot are this conduct into account at sentencing". Manafort remains jailed and is expected to face at least 10 years in prison.

Prosecutors with Mueller's legal team told a judge Monday night that Manafort breached his cooperation agreement and lied to investigators, a new court filing showed.

Other high-profile members of Trump's campaign team are also due to be sentenced in December after providing information to federal prosecutors.
