BREAKING: Mueller Witch Hunt Expands – Manafort Being Investigated For Possible Money Laundering
The out of control Special Counsel Robert Mueller is now looking into possible money laundering by President Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort as part of his ‘Russia’ investigation according to a Wall Street Journal report.
Via The Hill:
Special Counsel Robert Mueller is looking into possible money laundering by President Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort as part of his investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday.
It’s not the first time Manafort’s dealings have come under scrutiny. New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. are also looking into Manafort’s real estate transactions for possible money laundering and fraud.
Mueller’s investigation is focusing on Russian efforts to meddle in the 2016 election, as well as possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow.
The special counsel investigation is also looking into possible financial ties between members of the Trump campaign and Russian interests.
Mueller’s review of Manafort’s financial transactions has been in the works for several weeks, according to the Journal.
The Senate and House intelligence committees are also looking into Manafort’s financial dealings as part of their investigations into Russian election meddling.
The Mueller investigation is unsupervised and completely out of control. As TGP previously reported, Special Counsel Robert Mueller just crossed President Trump’s red line, expanding his investigation to include transactions by the Trump Organization.
As the President warned in a New York Times interview yesterday, Mueller might be making a fatal mistake in probing the Trump family’s finances.
The U.S. special counsel investigating possible ties between the Donald Trump campaign and Russia in last year’s election is examining a broad range of transactions involving Trump’s businesses as well as those of his associates, according to a person familiar with the probe.
The president told the New York Times on Wednesday that any digging into matters beyond Russia would be out of bounds. Trump’s businesses have involved Russians for years, making the boundaries fuzzy so Special Counsel Robert Mueller appears to be taking a wide-angle approach to his two-month-old probe.
FBI investigators and others are looking at Russian purchases of apartments in Trump buildings, Trump’s involvement in a controversial SoHo development with Russian associates, the 2013 Miss Universe pageant in Moscow and Trump’s sale of a Florida mansion to a Russian oligarch in 2008, the person said.
The Senate Judiciary Committee announced in a press release Wednesday afternoon that Donald Trump, Jr. Paul Manafort and Glenn Simpson of Fusion GPS have been “invited” to appear at a hearing to be held next Wednesday.
President of Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton says the Mueller probe is out of control, conflicted and unconstitutional and should be shut down:
