Mueller Wants to ‘Flip’ Paul Manafort
Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s FBI investigators raiding Paul Manafort’s home last month smacked of “heavy-handed tactics that have never been tried before in this context,” Freedom Watch founder Larry Klayman said Friday.
“They want to get him to testify against the associates of Trump and possibly Trump himself.
“These are people who are Democrats. They want to destroy Trump, end the Presidency.
“They’re looking to squeeze him,” Mr. Klayman added, “and they are squeezing Manafort.”
Also, Mr. Mueller is looking to speak with White House officials including former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, as he continues to probe whether President Donald Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia.
It was reported at the weekend, that Mr.Mueller is in talks with the White House regarding his wish to speak with current and former members of the White House staff.
Mr. Priebus, the former head of the Republican National Committee (RNC), worked as President Trump’s Chief of Staff until he was replaced with retired 4-Star USMC General John Kelly.
It is said that Mr. Mueller is particularly interested in President Trump’s firing of his friend and colleague former FBI director James Comey in May. Mr. Mueller himself led the FBI from 2001-2013.
Have a terrific week.
