There was an interesting filing recently by Paul Manafort in the prosecution by Robert Mueller’s team against him in the Eastern District of Virginia.

The filing concerned leaks reported in the media that were attributed by the media to government sources. Some of those media reports alleged Manafort contact with Russians. Manafort...

Paul Manafort made a tragic life decision when he agreed to serve as Trump’s campaign manager during the primaries, mostly because of his expertise in working delegates in floor fights. He just didn’t know it at the time.

Because Manafort was associated with the Trump campaign, he has come under the watch...

One of the concerns about the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel is that from the get go his investigation has appeared to go far afield of the “Russia collusion” that was the basis for his appointment.

I made this point in an earlier post with regard to the guilty plea...

As predicted, Robert Mueller’s investigation was more likely to find process crimes, such as making false statements to federal investigators, or crimes unrelated to alleged Russia collusion, than crimes related to actual collusion.

Mueller just charged Michael Flynn with lying to the FBI during a January 2017 interview (which predated Mueller) about...
