The Mueller team suffered a major setback on Friday. Federal Judge T.S. Ellis III accused Mueller and his team of lying in order to get former Trump adviser Paul Manafort to flip on the president. The judge saw exactly what they were trying to do and called them out.

Federal Judge Accuses Mueller Team of ‘Lying’ About Manafort Case
In a hearing on Friday in Alexandria, Va., about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s charges against former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, the judge accused Mueller’s legal team of “lying” about their investigation and of seeking solely to nab President Trump through “impeachment or whatever.”
“You don’t really care about Mr. Manafort,” Judge T.S. Ellis III told Mueller’s legal team in the courtroom, as reported by Fox News.com. “You really care about what information Mr. Manafort can give you to lead you to Mr. Trump and an impeachment, or whatever.”
Ellis is the senior judge of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, and he was appointed to his position by President Ronald Reagan in 1987…
When Mueller’s lawyers claimed that might not be possible because some of the information in the memo is secret, Ellis reportedly was not pleased.
“I’ll be the judge of that,” said Judge Ellis.
How much longer is this charade of an investigation going to be allowed to continue?
