First Charges Issued From Robert Mueller’s Investigation: Report
Will Robert Mueller’s first target of his witch hunt be Paul Manafort? This sure came about quickly after the Republicans started pressuring Mueller to resign. Sure looks like he is completely desperate to indict someone for anything… The timing is just amazing, isn’t it?
Does anyone really believe it’s coincidental that just as the Clinton crap is heating up, Robert Mueller leaks he is filing his first charges and someone will be arrested on Monday? I sure don’t.
There’s no such thing as a coincidence in Washington DC…
I’m guessing Manafort. They want to press him to try to get other people. Either that or Flynn for failing to properly register as a foreign agent. –WZ
Washington Examiner: The first charges of the investigation spearheaded by special counsel Robert Muller were approved Friday by a federal grand jury in Washington, D.C., according to a report Friday.
The federal judge has ordered the charges to remain sealed. Sources told CNN that the plan is to have anyone charged be taken into custody as soon as Monday.
Mueller is leading the federal investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and whether the Trump campaign had any ties to the Kremlin. Over the summer it was reported, but not confirmed, that Mueller’s team was investigating President Trump for possible obstruction of justice too. More
You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history – led by some very bad and conflicted people! #MAGA

POLITICO: The realtor who helped former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort buy the Virginia condo that was recently raided by the FBI testified last week before the federal grand jury hearing testimony in Robert Mueller’s Russia probe, POLITICO has learned.
The real estate agent, Wayne Holland of Alexandria, Virginia-based McEnearney Associates, appeared before the Washington-based grand jury after a federal judge rejected the firm’s lawyer’s bid to quash subpoenas for testimony and records about various real estate transactions.
The broker’s appearance before the grand jury is one of few concrete indications of the leads Mueller’s prosecutors are pursuing as they investigate Russian meddling in last year’s presidential election. The investigation encompasses lobbying work done by Manafort as well as possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials. More
