No, I showed you the statute required for appointing a special prosecutor.
You chose to be ignorant and ignore it.
The Attorney General, or in cases in which the Attorney General is recused, the Acting Attorney General, will appoint a Special Counsel when he or she determines that criminal investigation of a person or matter is warranted and
(a) That investigation or prosecution of that person or matter by a United States Attorney's Office or litigating Division of the Department of Justice would present a conflict of interest for the Department or other extraordinary circumstances; and
(b) That under the circumstances, it would be in the public interest to appoint an outside Special Counsel to assume responsibility for the matter.
By virtue of the authority vested in me as Acting Attorney General, including 28 U.S.C.
§§ 509, 510, and 515, in order to discharge my responsibility to provide supervision and
management of the Department of Justice, and to ensure a full and thorough investigation of the
Russian govemmenfs efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election, I hereby order as
The Special Counsel is authorized to conduct the investigation confinned by then-FBI
Director James B. Comey in testimony before the House Permanent Select Committee on
Intelligence on March 20, 2017, including:
any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals

What privileged info does he have?
So you disagree with the judge? He is wrong and you are right?
Why didn't the transition lawyer go to a court?
Why did manafort's lawyer not file a motion in the criminal court?
You couldn't possibly be misinterpreting anything or not knowledgeable enough to make the claim.
*None of the charges Manafort face can be tied to the scope of the investigation.
