close Video Napolitano: Manafort, prosecutors and the rule of law Judge Napolitano's Chambers: Judge Andrew Napolitano explains why it was no surprise special counsel Robert Mueller indicted Paul Manafort but why a federal judge calling Mueller out is a surprise. Late last week, a federal judge in Alexandria, Virginia, questioned the authority of special counsel Robert Mueller to seek an indictment and pursue the prosecution of former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort for alleged financial crimes that, according to the indictment, began and ended well before Donald Trump ran for president.

By The Washington Post | PUBLISHED: May 1, 2018 at 10:39 am | UPDATED: May 1, 2018 at 12:00 pm By Michael Scherer | Washington Post WASHINGTON – Former New York congressman Michael Grimm is a felon who has admitted to hiring undocumented workers, hiding $900,000 from tax authorities and making false statements under oath. To hear him tell it, that’s a reason Staten Island Republicans should vote him back into office. “It’s almost identical to what the president has been going through,” Grimm says of the federal investigation that led to his imprisonment. “It’s not an accident that under the Obama administration the Justice Department was used politically.

A self-proclaimed "free-trader," White House chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow backed President Donald Trump's hardline tariff stance against China "breaking a lot of laws," calling it a negotiation tactic to bring China to the table to settle trade imbalances with the U.S. "No tariffs have been implemented – now, they may be over time, they may be, depending on whether China wants to talk to us and negotiate" Kudlow reminded everyone amid all the bluster on Sunday's "The Cats Roundtable" on 970 AM-N.Y. per The Hill. "A lot of this is going to depend on China.
