    'Trump ex-Campaign Chair Manafort sues Mueller, Rosenstein, and Department of Justice
    Tucker Higgins
    Published 13 Mins Ago Updated 1 Min Ago



    Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort has sued special counsel Robert Mueller, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and the U.S. Department of Justice.

    "The actions of DOJ and Mr. Rosenstein in issuing the Appointment Order, and Mr. Mueller's actions pursuant to the authority the Order granted him, were arbitrary, capricious, and not in accordance with the law," the suit reads.

    Manafort was indicted Oct. 27 on 12 counts related to unlawful financial dealings. He pleaded not guilty and has been contesting the charges. A trial is scheduled to begin in May.

    The special counsel's office declined to comment.

    Whoops. Bet they didn't see that one coming. Discoveries and depositions should be very interesting especially if some have to be taken in GITMO.

    The most interesting discovery will cover the start of and source of the whole invesatigation.

    I'm thinking a specific Judge may well try to recuse himself from LIFE after accepting Gen Flynn's "plea"....

    I read the Complaint and it looks good. However, I have not read the legislative history or am familiar with any precedent in the area.

    The problem I see is even if he wins, Rosenstein would just issue a new order fixing the procedural problem.

    Problem here is I don't see any discovery really-it is a pure legal question and I expect to be resolved on summary judgment.

    God for Manafort. Sometimes the only way to deal with a bully is to hit them back between the eyes.
