From the article:

Quote:
The complaint claims that the appointment was an "abuse of discretion" and therefore, he says that anything resulting from Mueller's investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 presidential election should be deemed null and void.
Interesting. Why does that make me strongly suspect that there are things resulting from Mueller's investigation that are likely to convict Manafort?

IMO, that by itself shouldn't. Motions to dismiss a case are fairly common AIUI. If for no other reason, the legal bills from getting a case dismissed before trial would be a lot less than having to mount a full defense.

You're right about that.

This nasty suspicious administration is making me feel nasty and suspicious about them. I should try to keep that under control, and restrict myself to only being suspicious of them for behavior that actually is suspicious. There's plenty of that to go on with.
