Paul Manafort Changes Attorneys As Mueller Probe Targets

The real news here is the obsession of The Media with just about everything except what matters to the American People. Why do they think Trump was elected?

Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort has hired a new legal team to represent him in the investigation into potential collusion between President Trump and Russia just one day after it was revealed FBI agents raided his home as part of the investigation.

The one thing that caught my eye was that Maureen Dowd said there was paperwork confiscated from Manaforts home that was privileged between Manafort and his attorneys. As Dowd says, a motion needs to be filed that will nullify anything taken.

The double standard is revealing. Hillary Clinton should have had a raid by the FBI! Robert Mueller is showing his dirty colors.

A spokesman confirmed the change. “Mr. Manafort is in the process of retaining his former counsel, Miller & Chevalier, to represent him in the office of special counsel investigation. As of today, WilmerHale no longer represents Mr. Manafort,” Jason Maloni said in a statement.

Kevin Downing, a former senior Department of Justice official known for his work representing clients and firms facing complex financial investigations, will be working on the case, one of these people familiar with the matter said. Downing will have help from other lawyers also working on the case.

Manafort is cutting ties with WilmerHale, the firm that has represented him in the matter so far. His former lawyer there, Reg Brown, led the congressional investigations practice.

The move could signify a realization that the case has heated up, one of these people said, and that Manafort needs specialized criminal counsel. The switch comes after the FBI raided his home last month and a number of financial institutions were subpoenaed, these people said. The Washington Post first reported the home search, and Bloomberg first reported the bank subpoenas.

While Manafort has emerged as a key figure in the various probes into whether Trump’s campaign colluded with Russian officials to influence the 2016 election, special counsel Robert Mueller has also been examining Manafort’s personal finances and consulting work.

We need this Russian collusion stupidity to end so we can continue growing the economy. Many of us are so tired of all these “he said,” “such and such said,” “leaks here and there,” “The Russians did this and that, “etc. STOP IT STOP IT.

We elected Trump to do the important things like create jobs, fix and update all the infrastructure, give us a good health care, improve relations with the Russians, get rid of terrorists Islamic killers, build a wall (IF Obama can have a wall around his property then we demand a WALL with Mexico).

What we are seeing is a Democratic Party taken over by Liars, pedophiles, and unborn baby killers this is a dangerous situation plus a complete corrupt party. And now the Republicans are acting like the Democrats, no future for our country!

We need Donald to purge the swamp fast. Right now a lot of people do not have insurance since you cannot reach the Obamacare limits.

If you think this is an overreach, SHARE this article and wake up all Trump supporters.
