    Read what I said again sugar muffin.

    "You can't sue a prosecutor for doing their job..."

    Mueller hasn't done anything wrong.

    Yes I have, and Mueller didn't do ANY of the things that would cause him not to be protected under the immunity.

    What if Trump uses Manafort's allegation as cause to order the firing of not Mueller, but Rosenstein? Or both of them?

    Mueller: YOU'RE FIRED!

    And it will be thrown out of court, and rather quickly. Mueller did his job. I hate to break this to you, but a person can be charged with a separate crime if it is discovered while conducting an investigation into a different one. It's all about probable cause.

    You wrote your response in the wrong place...

    But Rosenstein DID have the power to do so, because the AG recused himself. Also as I already stated, in the process of investigating a crime, if evidence of a different crime is uncovered, they can collect that evidence and file different charges through probable cause.

    So Mueller going through financial records in search of Russian collusion, and he uncovers tax evasion, he is well within his power to file charges for that.

    Manafort sues Mueller, Justice Department

    Appears to be true...shots fired...LoL. Not often you see a criminal suing his prosecutor

    "President Trump's former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, has filed a lawsuit challenging the authority of special counsel Robert Mueller.
    In a court filing, lawyers for Manafort argue that the order establishing Mueller's investigation is overly broad and not permitted under Justice Department regulations.
    “The investigation of Mr. Manafort is completely unmoored from the Special Counsel’s original jurisdiction to investigate ‘any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump,’ ” the complaint reads.
    “It has instead focused on unrelated, decade-old business dealings—specifically, Ukraine political campaign consulting activities of Mr. Manafort.”
    Manafort pleaded not guilty to multiple counts in October, including conspiracy against the United States and money laundering related to his work for a pro-Russia political party in Ukraine."

    I would suggest a good doctor. They can cure anything these days even insanity. The fact is that the Justice Department was investigating Manafort even before Mueller was appointed.
