The judge presiding over the Mueller tax fraud case against former Trump campaign Chairman Paul Manafort suddenly delayed new testimony Friday, following complaints by Team Mueller.
Judge T.S. Ellis III delayed testimony on Friday in the Paul Manafort case, halting the day’s court proceedings for hours after Mueller prosecutors once again complained about the judge’s criticism of them. It’s not clear if the delay is connected to the complaint filed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team.
Robert Mueller’s legal team filed a motion against the judge Friday morning, claiming he was “unfairly criticizing them” in front of the jury, adding it may impact their final decision.
Well, since this entire case is being prosecuted in an attempt to allow the establishment news media and the Democratic Party to falsely link the 2005 tax case to the president, when the president has nothing whatsoever to do with it, speaks volumes for why the judge is giving them a hard time in court. Judge Ellis apparently recognizes what the Mueller team is doing, which is that they are trying to squeeze Manafort into telling them something about Donald Trump, even if he makes it up. Why else would Robert Mueller, who was appointed Special Counsel to look into Trump-Russia collusion, be prosecuting a tax case from over a decade ago, and pushing for over a hundred year prison sentence?
Mueller prosecutor Andrew Weissmann, who has one of the shadiest pasts of the very pro Democrat Mueller team, noted in the complaint that Ellis made negative comments about Team Mueller’s focus on a bank loan that Manafort applied for, and never received saying, “You might want to spend time on a loan that was granted.”
The prosecution was supposed to wrap up its case by Friday afternoon, but now it’s not clear how Friday’s delay will affect that.
