Former FBI Director, Robert Mueller

(Worthy News) - Special counsel Robert Mueller was granted wide latitude by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to pursue any alleged contact between Russia and the Trump campaign not matter how 'stale' it is, a judge said.

District Court Judge T.S. Ellis III, who is presiding over Mueller’s case against former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, said Rosenstein’s guidelines state that Mueller can investigate “any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump.”

Citing Supreme Court rulings, Ellis said “any links” also means “indirect links” or “potential links.” [ Source: World Tribune (Read More...) ]
