Absent corrupt intent or a violation of DoJ policy, the Judiciary doesn't get to determine the staffing plan of investigations and prosecutions if the Executive has signed off on it. And, at least to my knowledge, there's nothing that says you can't use charges to flip a witness. It's pretty standard practice. Does anyone know of any case law that suggests otherwise?
    I think the judge is letting them know that they have both weak ass cases, they possibly go past their mandate, they also may be null due to statue of limitations. Since intent supposedly plays a part in guilt or prosecution (see Comey inappropriately exonerating Hillary) then the intent of the prosecution in making up charges and so on to try and flip someone could come into play. Also, there are some rules about false and intentionally malicious petty prosecutions.

    What I really don't understand is why the Judge is asking for an unredacted version of the memo. The parts of it that are redacted aren't related to Manafort, and the parts that are already unredacted clearly indicate that Manafort's Ukraine work is under the purview of Mueller's investigation.
    Ummm, since they were redacted, unless you have some mythical connection to someone that has read the unredacted memo, are in illegally in possession of classified data or are some kind of psychic/mentat/full of shit you have no idea what the redacted parts are.
    I asked for neither your Opinion,
    your Acceptance
    nor your Permission.

    Do you even have to ask? He saw what fox news was foaming at the mouth about and just went with it.

    You don't deserve anything more than the most base interpretation of your banal drivel.

    It's completely bonkers how you alt right wingnuts can rationalize all of this. Hillary was let off because the FBI was protecting her. The FBI are investigating Trump because deep state/corruption. It's all a vast left wing conspiracy and all the Republicans involved are secretly just Democrats in disguise. No matter what evidence is provided you'll just bury your heads in the sand and scream that it doesn't matter because there's just no way on Earth Trump could ever do something illegal and even if he did do something illegal it doesn't matter because he's not a liberal.

    So no.

    Because- as usual- if you had bothered to use sources that aren't utter garbage (as PK is pointing out)- you would know the following:

    1) The Judge *explicitly* said he wasn't questioning the actual merits of the case itself

    2) Mueller's team explicitly told them what was in the redacted portions of the memo and why they were redacted

    At what point are you going to finally realize that you are utterly clueless about major events because you fill yourself up with garbage sources that intentionally mislead you for their own partisan purposes?
