Robert Mueller ‘accidentally’ releases names of people in Manafort case

June 14, 2018

  While we all anxiously await the release of the long-expected Inspector General report later today here is an interesting little story which will fall by the wayside: It appears as if Robert Mueller “accidentally” released the names of some journalists  who were in contact with the FBI, as well as the names of some European politicians, in the Paul Manafort case before trying to un-release them. Here is more:

Although Mueller has been tight-lipped about evidence and witness identification up to this point, his team appears to have screwed up by outing journalists who “produced messages to the FBI” about Manafort’s alleged “coaching up” on lobbying practices. Manafort was indicted in D.C. back in October 2017 for alleged financial fraud and violating lobbying disclosure laws. There’s also a case against him in the Eastern District of Virginia (EDVA).

“Special Counsel accidentally exposed names of former journalists and European politicians allegedly involved in Manafort’s secret Ukraine lobbying. Just filed a new version with redactions,” explained Washington Post reporter Rachel Weiner:

“Unredacted government exhibit showing alleged attempts by Manafort and Kilimnik to influence witness testimonies has been released. The witnesses, journalists […] produced the messages to the FBI,” the Atlantic‘s Natasha Bertrand added.

In a later tweet, Bertrand wrote, “Oh boy. Looks like releasing this unredacted was a mistake–special counsel has just re-filed this and other docs with redactions. 

  So either this was an honest mistake and Robert Mueller is incompetent or this was intentional. Personally I am of the belief that if something happens in politics it was meant to happen, nothing happens by mistake.

    This shows it was not anything close to an ‘honest’ mistake ~ they’re (his kind & connection) are all criminals of the lowest kind.

      Thanks for the link, the last sentence in that article really did sum it all up nicely.

        Notice the double “X”s … his crossed legs in front of the sticks X – probably not a coincidence.

        Good eye! I missed that but you are right. He is the only one crossing his legs and that is not a coincidence, he was using symbolism.
