Manafort Sues Mueller, Rosenstein and Justice Department

Jan.03 -- Paul Manafort, the indicted former campaign chairman of President Donald Trump, claims in a lawsuit that U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller overstepped his authority by charging him with crimes unrelated to Russian meddling in the 2016 election.


  • Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort has sued special counsel Robert Mueller, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and the Department of Justice in U.S. federal court
  • "The actions of DOJ and Mr. Rosenstein in issuing the Appointment Order, and Mr. Mueller's actions pursuant to the authority the Order granted him, were arbitrary, capricious, and not in accordance with the law," the suit reads.
  • All actions taken by the special counsel "must be set aside," Manafort's lawyers argue.
