Report: Mueller's Witch Hunt Is Financially Strangling His Targets

Special counsel Robert Mueller's witch hunt is strangling his targets financially as fighting against Mueller's team of taxpayer financed lawyers does not come cheap.

From The Daily Beast:
Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort parted ways with WilmerHale, the law firm defending him, earlier this week. That was largely because Bob Mueller’s 16-lawyer Russia probe—which is targeting him—has shifted its focus and is drilling down on tax issues, which aren’t WilmerHale’s specialty. But the parting of ways with WilmerHale was also in part because Manafort’s finances are increasingly strained, according to sources familiar with the situation.

“Paul Manafort’s resolve is limitless, but his resources are not,” said a person close to Manafort.

Manafort isn’t the only person facing financial challenges because of the legal costs of responding to Mueller’s probe. Michael Flynn, the retired general and deposed National Security Adviser, is struggling mightily with his mounting legal bills, according to a source familiar with his situation. The expenses has put his family’s finances under significant duress, the source said, and it’s expected he will soon create a legal defense fund to keep from going bankrupt.
This is a textbook shakedown campaign where the federal government bankrupts it's victims by dragging out legal proceedings.

There is clearly zero interest in justice. It's remarkable how Mueller's huge team of Clinton donating lawyers are being allowed to cash in on the taxpayers dime to carry out opposition research against Trump for the Democrats to use in the 2020 election. Meanwhile, that's the best case scenario. Worst case, taxpayers are paying these goons to carry out the overthrow of their democratically elected president in a deep state coup.
