Former FBI Director, Robert Mueller
(Worthy News) - A federal judge on Tuesday said special counsel Robert Mueller must reveal the names of people and organizations he believes acted as unregistered foreign agents in the case against Paul Manafort.
U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson ordered Mueller's team to give a list of the identities to Manafort's lawyers by Friday. The unidentified agents -- including former European politicians -- allegedly acted at Manafort's behest in a scheme to lobby on behalf of Ukraine. The judge also requested the identities of other people Manafort is accused of trying to influence, which led to new witness tampering charges last week.
Manafort's lawyers sought the names in order to "prepare for a complex trial with a voluminous record within a relatively short amount of time." [ Source: UPI (Read More...) ]
