A federal judge on Monday delayed the start date for Paul Manafort’s trial and revealed the identities of five witnesses who were offered immunity to testify against President Trump’s former campaign chairman.

Judge T.S. Ellis approved the Manafort’s request to postpone the trial date to July 31 and unsealed the names of the five prospective witnesses: Dennis Raico, Cindy Laporta, Conor O’Brien, Donna Duggan, and James Brennan.

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s legal team requested that the names remain anonymous, but the judge wouldn’t agree.

Some news reports indicated the witnesses were tied to financial institutions in which Manafort is accused of hiding money he made working as a consultant overseas.

Manafort has been charged with money laundering and tax evasion, along other crimes.

Former Attorney Gen. Eric Holder Jr. tells Stephen Colbert that he’s thinking fo running for president in 2020.

“What I’ve said is that I’d make a determination sometime early next year. My focus, really, now, is on 2018, the midterms and trying to make sure that Democrats take back the Senate, take back the House and do well, importantly, at the state level,” Holder said.

Holder said with redistricting scheduled for 2021 and “a real problem with partisan gerrymandering” he wants “to make sure we elect as many people as possible at the governor level, at the state legislature level, that when 2021 comes, we have a fair redistricting process.”

He also defended the controversial FISA warrant in the Russia investigation, saying it was clearly not all based on the infamous Steele dossier.

InfoWars Alex Jones Threatens to Shoot Mueller, Calls Him a Pedophile

InfoWars conspiracy theorist Alex Jones threatened to shoot special counsel Robert Mueller and called him a “monster” who was involved in a child sex ring involving Democrats.

Jones made the threat and outlandish allegations on his nearly three-hour InfoWars broadcast Monday.

After accusing Mueller of violent sex acts with children, the insidious host created a hypothetical “wild west” shootout with Mueller, who is investigating whether President Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia during the presidential election.

“I’m constantly in fear that I’m not being a real man, and I’m not doing what it takes, and I’m not telling the truth. And so, call it whatever you want, I look at that guy, and he’s a sack of crap,” Jones said.

Donald Trump’s attorney Rudolph Giuliani said the president would agree to an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller as long as the questions are limited to whether his campaign colluded with Russia.

Giuliani told Bloomberg News that Trump would not agree to an interview about whether he obstructed justice in the Russia investigation. 

Mueller has yet to respond to the proposal.

Giuliani and other lawyers for the president are worried he will commit perjury if Mueller believes witnesses who claim Trump obstructed justice.

Trump insisted he would sit down for an interview with Mueller but has balked since, saying the decision is up to his legal team.
