Exclamation Judge Tosses Manafort Dismissal Request

Citing the rule of law and authority given to Robert Mueller by the Justice Department.

A federal judge on Tuesday denied former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort's motion to dismiss the indictment returned against him by a grand jury in Washington, DC rejecting Manafort's challenge to special counsel Robert Mueller's appointment.

This is the second time that US District Judge Amy Berman Jackson has rejected efforts by Manafort to invalidate Mueller's appointment. She previously dismissed a civil lawsuit that Manafort filed raising similar arguments in the hopes of stopping the special counsel's office from indicting him again in the future; Tuesday's ruling means that the criminal charges already filed against him in the US District Court for the District of Columbia will go forward.

Jackson wrote that "the indictment falls squarely within that portion of the authority granted to the Special Counsel that Manafort finds unobjectionable: the order to investigate 'any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign,'" citing Mueller's original appointment order last May.

yes The Judge said that Manifort can go to trial for Crimes Committed while he was working for the Podesta Group on projects for the DNC and Clinton Foundation.
