Manafort drops Mueller's old law firm for one specializing in financial crimes
Aug 13, 2017, 01:01
Last month, Trump repeatedly excoriated Sessions for his decision to step aside from supervising the Russian Federation investigation, making it clear that he blamed the attorney general for the fact that he was facing the investigation by Mueller and his team.
The Senate judiciary committee still has not received a response to its letter to the Justice Department about warrants the FBI sought under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act as part of the bureau's probe into potential Trump and Russian Federation collusion, congressional sources said.
"Mr. Manafort is in the process of retaining his former counsel, Miller & Chevalier, to represent him in the office of special counsel investigation", read the statement.
Michael Zeldin, a former federal prosecutor, served as special counsel to Mueller when he was Assistant Attorney General in the DOJ's Criminal Division. Its staff and its files gathered as part of the investigation will have to be preserved.
Manafort is the New Britain native and longtime lobbyist who was chairman for Trump's campaign until August 2016.
Manafort is under investigation by the DOJ, as well as New York AG Eric T. Schneiderman and Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance Jr, all of which are probing payments he received for his work for Viktor Yanukovych, Ukraine's former pro-Putin president, and whether he laundered those funds through his many New York real estate holdings. Manafort led the Trump campaign for several months.
The former Federal Bureau of Investigation director has reportedly subpoenaed Manafort's banking and financial records.
Rosenstein said Mueller would have to seek his permission to investigate matters that fall outside his mandate. Yohai's attorney, Aaron May, declined TPM's request for comment. "Not just to the judge, but to the public". The "Red Wedding" is a scene in the TV show where a bloody-spattering massacre takes place - which is similar to the axing of former White House staffers, according to Gore. "If by acquiring that evidence in the manner that he did, it sends some sort of shockwave through the person who is the target of that evidence retrieval and has him rethink his position, so be it".
The content of the documents was not immediately clear, though Trump Jr. helped arrange a June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower that is of interest to investigators.
However, there is no requirement to publicize any additional authorities given to the special counsel, Jaso said. With money from Manafort, Yohai formed real-estate partnerships with investor money from NY and Los Angeles. Whatever financial crimes Manafort may have committed and may or may not get charged with are certainly not the end goal here.
Investigators are expected to deploy a wide array of similar measures - including interviews and subpoenas - in the coming months.
