In the Virginia trial of Manafort for 2005, 2007 accusations of bank fraud and money laundering, the Judge had requested the un-redacted memo specifying Mueller's power to prosecute Manafort. Now that the Judge has received the memo, what is your prediction on how he will rule ? My prediction is that he will move the trial elsewhere to Federal prosecutors (if not that, he will let it stand). Recently, an Obama appointed judge ruled that Mueller has the authority to prosecute Manafort in the District of Columbia. Judge Ellis is a Reagan appointed judge and seemed more skeptical towards Mueller.
