Despite no hard evidence, Robert Mueller is dead-set on continuing his investigation to prove collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
But he just ran into a major hiccup.
And all it will take is one new piece of news to end his Russia investigation for good.
The White House has come out stating that Robert Mueller’s Russia collusion investigation will come to an end soon.
Jay Sekulow, a member of President Trump’s legal team, stood by this prediction, stating that Special Counsel Robert Mueller will be the one to end it.
As reported by Breitbart:
“The White House continues to claim that Special Counsel Robert Mueller will end his inquiry into possible collusion between Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and the Russian government.
The Wall Street Journal reported Monday:
In an interview Monday, Jay Sekulow, a member of the president’s legal team, stood by the prediction that the part of the inquiry involving Mr. Trump would end soon. Still, he avoided any mention of specific dates.
“I know we, collectively, the lawyers, are looking forward to an expeditious wrapping up of this matter,” Mr. Sekulow said.
A spokesman for Mr. Mueller’s office declined to comment.
The Journal added: “An outside legal expert [Stephen Gillers, professor of legal ethics at New York University] said Monday he was dubious that Mr. Mueller’s inquiry is barreling toward a swift conclusion.”
In August, Ty Cobb, one of the lawyers handling the White House’s approach to the Russia inquiry, said: “I’d be embarrassed if this is still haunting the White House by Thanksgiving and worse if it’s still haunting him by year end.”
However, with former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn pleading guilty earlier this month to lying to the FBI, and the ongoing prosecution of former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort on charges unrelated to the campaign itself, there is every possibility that the Special Counsel will extend his investigation for months or even years, even if he strays far afield from his original mandate to probe Russian “collusion.””
This isn’t very surprising to anyone paying attention to the developments of the investigation.
The embarrassing news that two of the investigators had exchanged vehemently anti-Trump text messages while at the same time trying to claim that the investigation wasn’t politically motivated is one of the major hurdles for Mueller.
And to make matters worse, one of those anti-Trump investigators interviewed former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, which led towards his guilty plea.
Beyond that clear proof of political motivation, the investigation has strayed far away from its original mandate of investigating Russian collusion with the Trump campaign.
Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort is being investigated for charges completely unrelated to President Trump’s campaign.
If the investigation is to continue, it will likely stray far from its official intent.
With every day that goes by, it becomes clearer the investigation was never about Russia.
It was always about bringing President Trump down; and the longer the investigation stays alive, the better chance Robert Mueller will have to do that.
Do you think that Robert Mueller’s Russia probe is politically motivated?
