For Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his investigation team, their quest to uncover evidence of alleged collusion with Russia, obstruction of justice, or seemingly ANY potential discrepancy committed on the part of the Trump team, things aren’t looking well.
Already, the probe has dragged on for nearly two years, and has come under increasing scrutiny for its high cost, as well as its apparent bias, and with no evidence of any collusion with the Kremlin, the investigation has focused largely on Paul Manafort, former campaign chair for President Trump.
After bringing questionable charges against Manafort, Mueller’s prosecution team in the case has clashed repeatedly with Reagan-appointed judge T. S. Ellis regarding courtroom tactics and procedures.
While arguing over a technicality, Andres shifted his eyes downwards, prompting the Judge to scream “Look at me!”
“You looked down, as if to say, ‘That’s B.S.'” said Judge Ellis, adding, “I’m up here!”
