(Washington, DC) — A federal judge is dismissing Paul Manafort’s civil case against Special Counsel Robert Mueller [[ MULL-er ]]. Manafort is a former chief of the Trump presidential campaign and he challenged Mueller’s authority to charge him with crimes unrelated to the Russia investigation. Mueller’s team has charged Manafort with money laundering and failing to report lobbying activities. Judge Amy Berman Jackson said a civil suit is not a proper vehicle for challenging Mueller’s authority.
