Mueller’s investigation could end as soon as mid-February.
But in reality, nobody truly knows for sure.
And no matter when it ends, Mueller will be in huge trouble after the last person he wants to cross exploded at him.
For the past two years, the end date of Mueller’s investigation has been a mystery.
At the start, nobody expected it to last very long.
The scope of his investigation is to find out if collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia occurred during the 2016 election.
Instead of pushing towards that answer, Mueller has spent his time trying to prove that anybody close to Trump has committed any crime whatsoever.
He has essentially become a wing of the Democrat Party all on his own.
With the Democrat’s singular goal being taking down Trump, Mueller is the best ally they could ever count on.
Along with the media, Mueller has been able to paint a non-existent narrative of corruption in the Trump administration.
Despite most of America seeing through his claims, the Democrat establishment is continually siding with him.
But not everybody in the government agrees with him or has good things to say about him.
In fact, the last person Mueller wants to cross has very harsh words for him.
No matter when his Special Counsel report is finished, he will submit it to the Attorney General.
Bill Barr is Trump’s nominee for Attorney General.
Since being nominated, a memo from earlier this year has come to light, showing that he has less-than-positive things to say about Mueller.
In the memo, sent to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Barr argues that Mueller is “proposing an unprecedented expansion of obstruction laws” that could have “grave consequences” for the Executive Branch.
Barr also argues against Mueller being able to subpoena the President, saying:
“Mueller should not be permitted to demand that the President submit to interrogation about alleged obstruction.”
Questioning Trump is exactly what Mueller is trying to do.
It is his ultimate goal to take him down.
If he is able to question Trump under oath, he can try to force Trump into what is known as the “perjury trap.”
It is when prosecutors craft questions to a subject in a way designed to trick them into saying something untruthful.
From there, they are able to force charges on somebody regardless of if they find a previous crime.
But as it appears, if Barr is made Attorney General, it will become very difficult for Mueller to do that.
The Attorney General has the ability to oversee the investigation, which is something Jeff Sessions refused to do.
That is likely the reason Trump fired him.
But it is unclear if Barr will even get to serve as Attorney General.
Democrats are working overtime to prevent his confirmation.
They know he will be terrible for Mueller, and therefore terrible for them.
Do you think Trump should meet with Mueller?
