Mueller Team Tries To Go ‘Beyond the Special Counsel’s Mandate’
Russia special counsel Robert Mueller is trying to go beyond his team’s appointed mandate as he struggles to hang on in his battle against President Donald Trump.
Mueller’s team members are now identifying themselves as U.S. attorneys, not merely Mueller team members, which gives them the same power as U.S. attorneys in the case — meaning, they don’t want to have to be bound to the rules and regulations governing special counsel Mueller.
Lawyers from special counsel Robert Mueller’s team have filed as special assistant U.S. attorneys in their case against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, a move that could make it harder for a federal judge to move the case to a different court.
Politico reported Monday that several attorneys on Mueller’s team signed off on court filings as both representatives of Mueller’s office, and as special assistant United States attorneys.
The latter designation potentially gives them the authority to focus on matters beyond the special counsel’s mandate.
Peter Carr, a spokesman for the special counsel’s office, told Politico that the status would give them the same powers as a regular U.S. attorney.

Watch our exclusive Howley Reports interview with Roger Stone about the state of the Robert Mueller hoax investigation:
WASHINGTON — The Robert Mueller investigation is using research financed by a top George Soros official, according to top strategists from the Donald J. Trump presidential campaign.
Thursday, Big League Politics revealed the role of deep state operative Daniel J. Jones, who is working behind the scenes to fund the Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller’s bogus investigation into Trump campaign “collusion” with Russia.
As we reported:
“‘Dan Jones, the former Senate Intelligence staffer, has raised millions of dollars to fund continued exploration of the bogus [Steele] dossier,’ said Michael Caputo, Trump campaign advisor.
Daniel J. Jones is a deep state operative and President of The Penn Quarter Group, a Washington D.C. based investigative research firm. He spent four years in the FBI before joining the United State Select Committee on Intelligence under then-Senator Jay Rockefeller, and subsequently under Sen. Dianne Feinstein.
‘If you see the stories out there with unnamed sources, it’s become very clear that Dan Jones is one source, and he goes and gets another – no doubt from among his colleagues on the partisan hit-squad at the Intelligence Committee,’ Caputo continued.
We have learned that Jones’ deep state ties are much more in-depth than previously understood.
It turns out that Jones sits on the Board of Advocates for a Washington D.C. based non-profit called Human Rights First.
“Human Rights First is an independent advocacy and action organization that challenges America to live up to its ideals,” their website says. “We believe American leadership is essential in the global struggle for human rights, so we press the U.S. government and private companies to respect human rights and the rule of law. When they fail, we step in to demand reform, accountability and justice. Around the world, we work where we can best harness American influence to secure core freedoms.”
The non-profit clearly describes the amount of power that they wield over private corporations and the U.S. government. Unsurprisingly, the non-profit also boasts some nefarious donors, including George Soros’ Open Society Foundation:
