A federal judge has to do the job Sessions refuses to do. :thumbup:

Quote
A federal judge expressed deep skepticism Friday in the bank fraud case brought by special counsel Robert Mueller's office against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, at one point saying he believes that Mueller's motivation is to oust President Donald Trump from office.

"You don't really care about Mr. Manafort's bank fraud," Ellis said to prosecutor Michael Dreeben, at times losing his temper.

Ellis said prosecutors were interested in Manafort because of his potential to provide material that would lead to Trump's "prosecution or impeachment."

"None of that information has to do with information related to Russian government coordination and the campaign of Donald Trump."

It could go to the SC.  Fruit of the poison tree defense.

Consider: Goober Sessions is passed over for AG.
Consequence: Mueller continues working for his law firm.
Indeed, Character is Destiny; if only Trump understood this!!!

This is not going how the Dems were hoping.  I'll be curious to see if the SC submits the documents the Judge requested.  I think they'd rather drop this case than produce those documents.

They'll never produce the documents.

That would prove how frivolous they are, and would leave the authors open to prosecution.

And it is SICK - because they should be forced to produce them or they should face severe prosecution.

They will.  This isn't going away.

It will go away if Jeff Sessions has anything to do with it.
