Robert Mueller’s investigation of Trump is a farce. You need only to look at the people Mueller is surrounding himself with to know this.
Mueller teams up with New York attorney general in Manafort probe
Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team is working with New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman on its investigation into Paul Manafort and his financial transactions, according to several people familiar with the matter.
The cooperation is the latest indication that the federal probe into President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman is intensifying. It also could potentially provide Mueller with additional leverage to get Manafort to cooperate in the larger investigation into Trump’s campaign, as Trump does not have pardon power over state crimes.
The two teams have shared evidence and talked frequently in recent weeks about a potential case, these people said. One of the people familiar with progress on the case said both Mueller’s and Schneiderman’s teams have collected evidence on financial crimes, including potential money laundering.
No decision has been made on where or whether to file charges. “Nothing is imminent,” said one of the people familiar with the case.
Manafort has not been accused of any wrongdoing and has previously denied it. A spokesman for Manafort didn’t return phone calls seeking comment.
Eric Schneiderman has been on a long witch hunt for Trump.

As Mediaite points out:
Schneiderman is certainly no ally of Trump. Last year, his office opened an inquiry into the Trump Foundation and later sent the organization a cease and desist letter. Back in 2013, he filed a $40 lawsuit fraud lawsuit against Trump University.
This is not a fair investigation of Trump. They’re just trying to end his presidency.
