From your link...



Last point. Given the sensitivity of the issues and the severity of the conduct that ultimately evidenced (highlighted by the appointment of Huber), the story of Strzok and Page having an “affair” was used as cover.

That is an interesting point.
If this is true it will open up a whole other can of worms.

Just another carrot on a stick for the gullible so they can pretend like just because Jeff Sessions is doing something that implicitly means there is criminality to uncover.

But Mueller HAS uncovered criminality. In case you haven't been paying attention, a bunch of people have been indicted...

You wouldn't know that if you got your news from Fox and QAnon. They are creating a parallel universe through mind control.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort on Wednesday filed a motion in federal court seeking to dismiss charges against him, saying that the special counsel had exceeded his authority by charging Manafort with crimes not related to Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Oh and this one too...
www.washingtonpost.com... -285a-11e8-bc72-077aa4dab9ef_story.html?utm_term=.7404fcd2c6bc


None of the alleged conduct has any connection to coordination between the Trump presidential campaign [in 2016] and the Russian government,” Manafort’s lawyers wrote. The Justice Department was already aware of Manafort’s work because he disclosed it to them in 2014 and had decided not to prosecute, his lawyers argued, and so discoveries of his conduct did not “arise” in the Mueller probe.

Is that whole "lying to the fbi" going to be applied to all those in the fbi that have lied as well, or is that only for regular people?

A desperation move. He is guilty as [redacted]. Mueller has the authority to prosecute anything he uncovers. He is using money laundering as leverage to get the real dirt on collusion. Several others have already pleaded guilty, and are cooperating with the investigation. No law firm is willing to take Trump's defense.

That is incorrect, as you will soon see.

It probably depends.

Was there intent?

Precedent has been set at the highest echelon. Crimes can now be committed with impunity (and immunity) so long as those in control of bringing charges determine the person involved "didn't actually have malicious intent" when committing the act.

Back on the thread topic...
www.washingtontimes.com...



John W. Huber, the U.S. attorney in Utah, can convene a grand jury, issue subpoenas, collect evidence and order witnesses to testify — all the usual powers a federal prosecutor has — as he delves into whether the FBI abused its powers when it sought permission and then carried out wiretapping of a Trump campaign figure, or whether it trod too lightly in pursuing questions about Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

and the guy has praise from both sides of the argument



Mr. Huber has received high marks from Republican and Democratic administrations. In 2004, Attorney General John Ashcroft honored him for his work fighting violent crime. In 2010, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. recognized him for his performance as a federal prosecutor.

Trump will point out that he was an Obama nominee when he finds that the FISA warrants authorizing the investigations of his campaign staffers were legitimate. (We know they were legitimate because of the Democratic rebuttal to the Republican House memo.)

from cnbc perhaps you will listen to a liberal perspective


Under the current law, the special counsel's focus is somewhat more limited, with the scope of the investigation set by the attorney general and confined to investigating criminal matters.

Huber isn't a prosecutor he's a judge.
Judges have NO PROSECUTORIAL ABILITIES.
Fail...

That is an opinion. The authorization itself says, and I quote:


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 follows:
(a) Robert S. Mueller III is appointed t() serve as Specia] Counsel for the United States Department of Justice.
(b) The Special Counsel is authorized to conduct the investigation confinned by then-FBI Director James 8. Corney in testimony before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on March 20, 2017, including:
(i) any links and/or coordination bet ween the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump; and
(ii) any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation; and
(iii) any other matters within the scope of 28 C.F.R. § 600.4(a).
(c) If the Special Counsel believes it is necessary and appropriate, the Special Counsel is authorized to prosecute federal crimes arising from the investigation of these matters.
(d) Sections 600.4 through 600. l 0 of Title 28 of the Code of Federal Regulations are applicable to the Special Counsel.

www.justice.gov... [Emphasis mine. --DJW001]

It is for the courts to decide whether Mueller has the authority.

Thanks for highlighting the portion that will spring manafort, even if he is a criminal because mueller screwed up.



arising from the investigation of these matters.

seems the feds already knew about that bit from manafort in 14 and chose not to prosecute, so it was not "arising from the investigation of theses matters" was it?

further discussion of these issues is in other threads perhaps you have items to discuss as to the topic of this thread? you know a prosecutor assigned to prosecute items found problematic in the ig report from the fbi?

He can file all the motions he wants. It won't change anything. Furthermore, he isn't the only one who was indicted.
