During a hearing Friday, District Judge T.S. Ellis slammed special counsel Robert Mueller’s office over the bank fraud case against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, at one point saying he believes that Mueller’s real motivation is to oust President Donald Trump from office.

“You don’t really care about Mr. Manafort’s bank fraud,” Judge Ellis told prosecutor Michael Dreeben, adding that prosecutors were more interested in Manafort because of his potential to provide material that would lead to Trump’s “prosecution or impeachment.”

The full transcript of that hearing was released on Saturday. WikiLeaks provided a link to the complete transcript which may be read online.

Screenshots of the document were also just posted on Twitter Saturday afternoon, along with highlights of significant segments, as found below.
