Mueller is preparing to face Manafort in a Virginia court on July 25 and wants to ensure that jurors aren’t biased by things they’ve read in the media before the trial begins. RELATED: People reportedly interviewed in Robert Mueller’s Russia probe In a footnote, the special counsel singled out two stories in The New York Times and Washington Post last year, which claimed that Mueller’s office had conducted “no-knock” raids of Manafort’s house. The Times cited two anonymous sources “close to the investigation” to report that FBI agents had picked the lock on Manafort’s door rather than announcing their presence prior to raiding his house. Many other news outlets, including the BBC , Vox , and Business Insider , then cited the Times report on the “no-knock” warrant at the time. Mueller’s office later denied carrying out “no-knock” raids , though had until now stopped short of attacking specific outlets over claims to the contrary. “The reporting, at times inaccurately, comments on the nature of the evidence collected in the case or activities of the parties.” “Furthermore, the amount of publicity about this case is only likely to grow as the trial date approaches, and such publicity increases the possibility that jurors will form biases or pre-formed opinions that may prejudice one or both parties.” It also called out reports that “question the legitimacy of the Special Counsel’s investigation, tending to advance the opinion that the investigation is ‘tainted’ and therefore its results are suspect,” and stories that “include disparaging descriptions of the defendant.” The filing cited a February 2018 Boston Herald story and a June 2018 LA Times op-ed to demonstrate those examples. The court filing included a proposed, 19-page questionnaire to potential jurors to understand the possibility of their having prejudices before trial. Jurors typically receive a jury questionnaire when they arrive for service, which ask them for basic information, prior experience, and pre-trial knowledge of the case. Below are some examples of questions Mueller’s office wants to ask potential jurors: This case has received significant publicity in the media. Have you seen, read, or heard anything at all about this case in any form of media, including newspaper, television, radio, or internet?

This is the third time in recent years that REI Systems has won this prestigious award. The Washington Post’s Top Workplaces list spotlights private, public, nonprofit, and government agencies that provide a stellar work environment for employees. The Top Workplaces list is determined based on employee feedback compiled from an online survey distributed by Energage. REI Systems’ employees again responded with highly positive feedback, noting their appreciation for the meaningful work they do, the culture of caring, and job flexibility. REI Systems’ CEO Shyam Salona said, “The transparent and open employee culture that we have established provides an impactful two-way communications stream between leadership and employees, fostering real conversations around what is important to everyone. This is evident based on the employee results of the survey ranking us higher than many Top Workplaces 2018 benchmarks. We had a 20% active higher rating than the benchmark in our employees being well informed of company decisions. Employees also appreciate our investment in professional growth, as shown by our rating in career training opportunities, which also surpassed the benchmark by 20%. In addition, we exceeded benchmarks by nearly 10% in enabling employees’ potential and encouraging different points of view.
