Manafort’s attorneys allege special counsel Robert Mueller abused his authority, by pressing charges against Manafort over his previous work in Ukraine.
The lawyers point out the DOJ authorization to investigate the former Trump campaign chief was issued last August.
This happened after the search of Manafort’s home in July 2017 and could constitute a violation of due process.
This comes as the most recent challenge to the faltering Mueller probe as Manafort has stated the search of his home was a breach of fourth amendment rights
