Special counsel Robert Mueller has told a judge that prosecutors anticipate needing three weeks to present their evidence against two former campaign aides to President Trump, according to court documents made public Friday.

Mueller’s legal team predicted it would require 15 days in court to lay out the case against Paul Manafort and Rick Gates, both of whom are facing charges ranging from conspiracy to money laundering to tax evasion based on their work for a pro-Russia leader in Ukraine.

Manafort and Gates appeared before a judge for the second time on Thursday, at which point prosecutors and defense attorneys haggled over the conditions of the two former campaign aides’ house arrest and scheduling issues.

Attorneys for Manafort and Gates reportedly proposed setting the trial tentatively for April, and the judge in the case suggested she did not take issue with the proposed timeline.

    The Legal council for the DNC & the Hillary Rodham Clinton campaign payed several million dollars (thru several intermediaries) to a former British intelligence agent named Steele. The money was payment for Mr Steeles work in producing a collections of accusations (dossier) against Donald J Trump for use by the Clinton campaign in the run up to the November 2016 election.
    The author of the dossier (Steele) stated that the bulk of the information in the dossier was provided by two separate Russian individuals & that the information had not been verified.
    The justification for appointment of a Special Council was that same unverified document paid for by the legal council of the Clinton campaign & the Democrat National Committee.
    Irregardless of what the council comes up with in the mater of Russian & the 2016 election it will be tainted by the real possibility of a politically motivated investigation. That very same Special Prosecutor may himself have been involved in or knowledgeable of an unrelated Russian collusion half a dozen years ago that involved Americas uranium supply.

    The scales of justice are blind and so are the judges who allow mueller to continue this investigation as it has not proven any collusion against President Trump. If there was any illegal activity, he should so state and quick trying to mix apples and oranges to make lemonaide.

    I think it’s high time to prosecute the unqualified persecuter Mueller…the man is another DNCommunist scheme and the RINO contingent is happy about it….The idea is fake law to undermine and remove President Trump by special interest because he is exposing them and their crooked swamp ways…they are being outed in droves now, the courts are going to be under the stress of actually having to prosecute some who have bought and paid for judges and courts to get the outcome they wanted……we smell of the cancer we call corruption, we need to get a grip on this problem and get merit, honor and integrity reinstated if we hope to retain this rule of law, Representative Republic…….MAGA……..America for Americans………….
