oN Tuesday a federal judge on denied former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort's motion to dismiss the indictment returned against him by a grand jury in Washington, DC. The ruling rejects Manafort's challenge to special counsel Robert Mueller's appointment.
This is the second time that US District Judge Amy Berman Jackson has rejected efforts by Manafort to invalidate Mueller's appointment. She previously dismissed a civil lawsuit that Manafort filed raising similar arguments in the hopes of stopping the special counsel's office from indicting him again in the future. Tuesday's ruling means that the criminal charges already filed against him will go forward.
