Posted on 08/09/2018 12:21:22 PM PDT by Bigtigermike
Special counsel Robert Mueller filed a formal complaint against the judge presiding over Paul Manaforts tax fraud case this week; claiming T.S. Ellis III violated protocol while ruling against the prosecutions star witness.
According to Politico, Muellers team is increasingly frustrated with the cranky judge who has rebuked the special counsels office on multiple occasions.

Loser Mueller again gets flummoxed by an unexpected fly in the ointment of his pre-planned political show trial.
Sickening. Not a real man on that team. They got their waddle feelings hurt.
Mueller has run wild for so long he thinks he can do it everywhere
Widdle not waddle. Darn autocorrect
Listening to the prosecution could give the jury the impression that the prosecutions case is dubious.
Their ‘star’ witness is a self-proclaimed criminal that has been caught lying on the stand and to the Special Counsel.
Shouldda done a better job of judge shopping.
Perhaps Mueller would like to see our list of the number of times HE “violated protocol”...?!?!?!?!
Heard judge Ellis gave his apology to the Mueller thugs.
So is this kabuki theatre or is there real animosity between the judge and the prosecution?
They could be posing all this anger at each other to lead us on....
Not a lawyer, but does this mean the case is stalled until this complaint is resolved?
Is Mueller asking to have this judge removed?
Is Mueller just trying to stall for time or is Mueller trying to draw a more sympathetic (e.g. Deep State judge) this late in the game?
I thought the jury was only supposed to look at the facts of a case. The judge’s attitude is not a fact. Therefore, Mule and his team should STFU.
Thought you were referring to Congressman Jerald Waddler (Fat-NY)
That’ll make the judge nicer to Mueller’s cronies, I’m sure. Because judges love when you file a complaint against them. Sounds like Manafort might go free.
“Thank you, sir, for filing this complaint. Please allow me to demonstrate for you how and where we will be filing it.”
I suppose he is filing this because he knows that nothing the judge has done constitutes reversal error.
I was thinking about this yesterday; I was thinking that Judge Ellis probably isn’t acting the way he is “in isolation,” so to speak. He’s probably talking to other judges, and the way he’s behaving is to some extent (I don’t know how much) a reflection of how other judges view what Mueller is doing.
