Judge tells special counsel Mueller to disclose key figures in Paul Manafort case

Source: CNBC

A judge ordered prosecutors Tuesday to tell ex-Trump campaign chief Paul Manafort the identities of key figures in the criminal case against him.

The individuals and groups whose names Manafort demanded are ones who allegedly acted as unregistered foreign agents at his behest.

U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson said special counsel Robert Mueller's team must hand over the names to Manafort's lawyers by Friday.

That is the same day Manafort is due in court on a request by Mueller to revoke his $10 million bail and jail him because of his alleged efforts to tamper with potential witnesses against him.

1. Manafort may be a dick, but he's entitled to a defense. n/t

5. And Putin is entitled to kill his own citizens for ratting him out.

Or, if they are in the United States, hold their Russian families hostage and threaten to kill them if the witnesses testify.

This is hard ball.

2. This is going to burn Manafort in the end

Manafort's lawyers think they are being smart by trying to get the case thrown out over sources protected by the National Intelligence Gathering organizations. Mueller will call their bluff and give the defense names they would prefer not to be entered into trial.

Manafort is going to do hard time.

3. I wonder if a judge could order Mueller to produce ALL documents and make them public.

Since I can see this case being derailed by various nefarious characters, I would love to have all collected documents rendered for public viewing. Obviously not wiki-yellow-leaks. I'd trust the ICIJ and/or ProPublica to be a reputable resource. I wonder if there is a "dead-man's" switch on this investigation.

6. Putin needs to know which Russians to throw into a gulag.

It's a simple as that. Would you tell a mobster the identity of the secret government witnesses against him if said witness had family members that could not be placed into protective custody? No.

8. Surprised at how many DUers think it will be a good thing

for Mueller to reveal the identity of "foreign agents" who are key witnesses in a case against someone who was working for Putin, when Putin has the power to have said witnesses' friends and family back in Russia jailed and even killed in order to dissuade them from testifying.

This is organized crime. You have to think like organized criminals. The judge in this case has a screw lose--or has been bribed or blackmailed himself. I predict it will go to a higher court.

his alleged efforts to tamper with potential witnesses against him.


Witness tampering and intimidation. That is what this is all about. It is what mob trials are always all about. That and the bribes.

11. That's not how I read it. It sounds to me likes the names Manafort will be given

are those of other unregistered foreign agents who he worked with against the U.S. Russian no doubt already knows who their own spies were.
