Robert Mueller is on a mission to destroy Trump and anyone else that stands in his way.
However, Mueller just met his match at the Supreme Court.
Brett Kavanaugh just threw a major wrench in Mueller’s plans.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller is supposed to be investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
However, it increasingly looks like the federal investigator is instead using his platform to target President Trump and anyone connected to him.
In the name of investigating the Kremlin, Mueller has extended the scope of his work to include individuals and even corporations which likely have little or nothing to do with Russian election interference.
His latest target is an unnamed company – likely of Russian origin – which he believes helped to facilitate the 2016 election mess he is charged with investigating.
But Mueller just ran into a brick wall that has left the Special Counsel scrambling for Plan B.
Yahoo reports, “The U.S. Supreme Court let an unidentified foreign-owned company file a redacted appeal in a case believed to be tied to the criminal investigation being conducted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.”
The documents released as part of the case reveal that the company isn’t legally required to provide information to Mueller’s team, or pay the $50,000 per day fine which Mueller leveled against the company if they refused to comply with his demands.
“The Supreme Court previously refused to block the daily fines, but the company is still pressing the court to hear an appeal. If the court were to take up the case, the justices would either have to put it on an unusual fast track or wait until the nine-month term that starts in October,” added Yahoo.
While the appeal is heavily redacted, it’s clear the court ruling is a disaster for Mueller.
The Supreme Court almost never hears appeals of this type, but after the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the court last October, it seems Mueller simply doesn’t have the votes on the highest court to enforce his will.
If the court ultimately rules in favor of the company, it could result in a serious setback for Mueller’s investigation.
Mueller is still working to build a case against Trump, his campaign, and his staff.
He’s expected to wrap up this investigation before the end of the year, with a possibility of being finished before spring.
But the Supreme Court’s ruling could push this back indefinitely.
Mueller’s work remains unfinished, and as the Special Counsel works to tie up any last minute loose ends he may have before he reveals his findings, it’s clear he’s trying to check every last outlet he can to build his case against the President.
This new development is a serious setback for him, which could not only delay the final verdict he issues, but also ruin the existing work he’s put into his investigation so far.
It remains to be seen what the final fallout of the case will be, but the court will likely hear the appeal soon.
