The ‘Russian Collusion’ Trial Is On, And Mueller May Be The First Casualty

Post by silvermani on Thu May 10, 2018 10:00 pm

"One thing you never want to do is to indict in a case that you’re not prepared to try,” McCarthy said.
Mueller tried to delay Wednesday’s hearing and floated a claim Concord had not been properly served notice.
“Until the Court has an opportunity to determine if Concord was properly served, it would be inadvisable to conduct an initial appearance and arraignment at which important rights will be communicated and a plea entertained,” Mueller’s lawyers filed in federal court.
But Concord opposed the motion. “The Special Counsel is not entitled to special rules and is required like the Attorney General to follow the rules of the Court,” Dubelier stated in his response to Mueller.
U.S. District Court Judge Dabney Friedrich agreed with Concord and rejected Mueller’s request for a delay in the trial without comment, which led to Wednesday’s arraignment.
Concord wants a “speedy trial” as provided by federal law, the company’s lawyers also repeated Wednesday. The case will resume July 9.
It is the second legal headache for Mueller in two weeks. Last week, federal Judge T.S. Ellis, III, a Reagan appointee, threatened to throw out the special counsel’s indictment of Paul Manafort since the charges against President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager did not relate to any charges of Russian collusion. Instead, the charges were tied to banking activities that went as far back as 2005 — more than a decade before Trump announced his intention to run for president.

The desperation is amusing to watch. A few months ago, the Nunes memo was "explosive" and "shocking," and it was going to "rock DC" and "end the Mueller investigation." Now the trial is going to claim Mueller as its first casualty. Good luck!

Desperation is high among illiberals to topple a Democratically elected a President just because his win was unexpected.
