Robert Mueller has led his investigation into Russian interference in the US since May 17th, and it looks like it may not stop anytime soon.
A new report was just released which revealed Mueller’s new plan for the special investigation.
Despite dragging on throughout the year without any evidence, Robert Mueller wants to continue his witch hunt “well into 2018”, according to sources close to his team.
Mueller plans to extend his charge well into the new year, despite Trump’s legal team telling him he is running out of options and evidence.
White House special counsel Ty Cobb reportedly even told President Trump the Russian investigation would be wrapped up by the end of the year, which is drawing near.
Other members of Trump’s legal team have told Trump that he and his colleagues could expect to be exonerated of any connections to Russia by next year.
The Washington Post reported:
People with knowledge of the investigation said it could last at least another year — pointing to ongoing cooperation from witnesses such as former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos and former national security adviser Michael Flynn, as well as a possible trial of two former Trump campaign officials. The special counsel’s office has continued to request new documents related to the campaign, and members of Mueller’s team have told others they expect to be working through much of 2018, at a minimum.
If Mueller truly continued his pointless investigation into the new year, it would likely not sit well with President Trump.
Advisers have told Trump he is expected to be cleared of any and all involvement with the Russian government, especially considering the lack of evidence.
Trump’s legal team is set to meet with Mueller’s prosecutors this week.
The Daily Caller reported:
Trump’s legal team is expected to meet with Mueller’s prosecutors this week. According to The Post, Trump’s lawyers are likely to ask Mueller whether any additional information or witnesses are needed for the probe.
“You’ve had all these witnesses, all these records. Is there anything else you need from the White House?” will be the Trump legal team’s question, according to The Post.
Cobb told reporters last week that Mueller had concluded all of his interviews with White House officials. But it emerged over the weekend that Mueller has recently obtained emails from the Trump transition team and has been asking witnesses questions based on those documents.
President Trump will likely not stand for a lengthened investigation, regardless of Robert Mueller’s new plan.
Do you believe Mueller will be able to continue his investigation into 2018?
