Robert Ray Quoted in Yahoo! Finance on Mueller’s Obstruction of Justice Charges Against Manafort

“Special counsel Mueller files witness tampering indictment against Paul Manafort and Russian citizen”

Special counsel Robert Mueller on Friday filed new witness tampering criminal charges against ex-Trump campaign chief Paul Manafort as well against Russian citizen and former Manafort operative Konstantin Kilimnik.

…”The heat is being turned up,” said Robert Ray, who served as independent counsel in the Whitewater investigation into Bill Clinton , in an email to CNBC.

“Counts Six and Seven are significant — obstruction of justice (witness tampering) and conspiracy to obstruct justice (same), alleged against both defendants and continuing through April 2018, that is, including while Manafort was released on bail,” said Ray, a partner in the law firm of Thompson & Knight.
