Mueller Just Quietly Published 800 Pages Of Damning Evidence Against Trump And Manafort

If there is one single political development that everyone on the left of American politics has been eagerly waiting for for multiple years now, it is the publication of Robert Mueller‘s report from the investigations of his probe. Back after Donald Trump was elected as President of the United States, the Justice Department commissioned the former Director of the FBI to investigate claims that the campaign to elect the Republican candidate to the White House colluded with Russian state actors in order to steal the result of the election from rival Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, and then committed obstruction of justice afterwards in a desperate attempt to cover it up.

Well, recently, things have been coming to a head surrounding Mueller’s inquiry and the progress it has been making. Perhaps the most notable step forward has concerned Paul Manafort, the man who was Chairman (and effectively mastermind) of the 2016 Trump campaign. He has been indicted and charged with several offenses, so much so that the future does not look bright for him at all. Very recently, Mueller filed Manafort’s sentencing memo under seal.

Now, though, the judge in that case has instructed Mueller to publish at least some of that information publicly and Mueller has complied, gifting us a mega document which is no less than eight hundred pages long.

Thankfully, we have not had to spend many, many hours poring over those endless pages of legal drivel to see if we could find anything we could understand, because various media and legal experts have done that for us. And the results are pretty staggering. Judging just by what has been made public here, the mountain of evidence possessed by Mueller and his team is enormous and pretty conclusive.

In the document, for example, Mueller writes that Manafort – who, let’s not forget, is already facing a prison sentence of up to ten years in Washington – “repeatedly and knowingly” broke the law and that “his criminal actions were bold” and went right to “the heart of the criminal justice system”, with “no warranted mitigating factors”. It continues:

“Even after he purportedly agreed to co-operate with the government in September 2018, Manafort, as this court found, lied to the [FBI], this office, and the grand jury… in sum, upon release from jail, Manafort presents a grave risk of recidivism.”

Wow. I would not want to be President Trump right now, nor anyone else who was involved in that campaign in any way at all.
