    This is not the same judge that was giving Mueller's team a weird time in E.D. Virginia. However, it does tackle the same issues.

    I also believe the only reason Manafort bothered filing motions for dismissal predicated on "this is the wrong prosecutor" is to gun for a pardon. It's more political theater to bolster the current White House's chances in an impeachment process than it is a valid legal tool to save his own skin.
