Robert Mueller hits ex-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort with third indictment that also charges Russian operative
Special counsel Robert Mueller on Friday hit embattled ex-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort with a third superseding indictment, charging him and a shadowy Russian operative with obstruction of justice.
Manafort and Konstantin Kilimnik “knowingly and intentionally” tried to secure false testimony from two potential witnesses in the investigation into Russian election meddling, Mueller charged in the federal Washington, D.C., court filing.
Kilimnik, widely believed to be a former agent for the Kremlin’s top intelligence agency, GRU, has been working for Manafort in various capacities since they lobbied for Russian-backed ex-Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych in the early 2000s.
Since Feb. 23, Mueller alleges Manafort and Kilimnik have tried to get in touch with two people connected to the so-called Hapsburg group, a consulting firm made up of Kremlin-friendly European politicians.

So disgraceful that the questions concerning the Russian Witch Hunt were “leaked” to the media. No questions on Collusion. Oh, I see...you have a made up, phony crime, Collusion, that never existed, and an investigation begun with illegally leaked classified information. Nice!
The new charges relate to a filing made by Mueller earlier this week accusing Manafort of witness tampering.
Prosecutors allege Manafort and Kilimnik “repeatedly” contacted the two witnesses to influence their testimony.
A few words from Witchy
Why is congress so quiet? Where is Ryan, Issa, Gomert, Trey, Mitch and all the Obama haters on all these illegal acts being committed by tRUMP? The silence is deafening. Maybe they are as guilty of being in on collusion, perjury, and conspiracy as tRUMP.
How can there be law and order when the guy in the WH is a criminal? From day one, tRUMP attacked our FBI and Intel officials. Why is it that the FBI were seen as honorable until tRUMP came along? tRUMP is supposed to represent the law and all the people of this country. Instead, he chooses to enforce the law on others like DACA while claiming foul when he himself is under criminal investigation.
Can we please learn a lesson from this? Never allow a person to run for office that refuses to show his tax return, declared bankruptcies, can’t get a security clearance, American banks will not give him a loan, known to be an ill moral person or has shown himself to lack wisdom!
This was Trump's CAMPAIGN MANAGER. Think about that for a while.
Mueller should issue a statement now that any pardon or even talk of pardon will be seen as obstruction of justice. Furthermore that he will not hesitate to file criminal charges against Trump if warranted. Let the Supreme court sort it out.
It is sweet but won't be complete until they get the Orange bloated Russian collusion chief fake president. Has the Orange doody head tweeted yet?
Get your popcorn ready as it will get really entertaining as things heat up and tRUMP is finally perp walked from office - the world will rejoice! Hallelujah!!!
Go Mueller!!! For Truth and Justice and the American Way! Rule of Law Rules!!!
