Trump Slams Mueller as Opposite of a Saint

  • Mueller says Manafort violated plea agreement by lying to investigators

The former Trump campaign chairman is a significant figure of interest in Mueller's inquiry, which is examining Russia's interference in the 2016 election, whether the Trump campaign colluded with Moscow, and whether Trump sought to obstruct justice after he learned of the investigation's existence a year ago.

"The Fake News Media builds Bob Mueller up as a Saint when in actuality he is the exact opposite", Trump wrote on Twitter. He is doing TREMENDOUS damage to our Criminal Justice System, where he is only looking at one side and not the other.

"Heroes will come of this, and it won't be Mueller and his awful Gang of Angry Democrats", Trump wrote. Manafort's legal team will have to convince Judge Berman Jackson that Manafort offered an honest effort to comply with Mueller's team just to get a sentence within the original deal's parameters, which is now their best-case scenario. Mueller had delayed to see how well Manafort cooperated.

"The Phony Witch Hunt continues, but Mueller and his gang of Angry Dems are only looking at one side, not the other", Trump tweeted.

Mueller also noted that the guilty pleas stand as a result, while an agreement by prosecutors to a reduced sentence based on cooperation was no longer required.

The rupture in relations may have dire consequences for Manafort, 69, who sought to avoid spending the rest of his life in prison by pleading guilty to two conspiracy counts after a jury convicted him of bank and tax fraud. While Manafort's attorneys claim that he has not actually lied to investigators, the government says otherwise, and ultimately it is the government's opinion that matters in his upcoming sentencing hearing. "Let these bad people go back to the Clinton Foundation and "Justice" Department!", Trump said in the posting.

Napolitano explained that this means that the special counsel's office will not ask the judge in the Eastern District of Virginia to "go easy" on Manafort in sentencing, which is scheduled for early February.

But Mueller's office says Manafort broke his promise and also broke federal law with "crimes and lies".

Manafort was a long-time Republican political consultant who made tens of millions of dollars working for pro-Kremlin politicians in Ukraine before joining the Trump campaign in March 2016, promising to work for free.

Manafort, who is being held behind bars, is scheduled to be sentenced on February 8, 2019. In a separate case, his potential sentencing under federal guidelines has not yet been calculated, but prosecutors previously said he could spend up to 10 years in jail.
