Prosecutors Deride Manafort as Mueller Report Looms
Two-plus years into Donald Trump’s presidency, special counsel Robert Mueller is reportedly polishing the report that might support Trump’s impeachment. Meanwhile, the drip of revelations from Mueller’s probe into the presidential campaign’s connections to 2016 Russian election meddling continues. A prosecutorial filing released Saturday said Paul Manafort, who led Trump’s drive for the GOP nomination, “repeatedly and brazenly” broke laws from money laundering to concealing his work for foreign governments — including during the campaign.
Will Mueller’s report be public? His report to the Justice Department will be confidential, so Attorney General William Barr controls what’s released — even to Congress.
