Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort has filed a lawsuit against Special Counsel Robert Mueller according to several news reports. In a lawsuit filed in federal court, Manafort asked the court to scale back Mueller's authority and set aside the criminal case against him. In October, Manafort and an associate were indicted by the special counsel on charges of conspiring against the U.S. as well as money laundering.
