Robert Mueller has been quiet for months.
Because of the midterm elections, he has been avoiding the public spotlight.
But now that they are ending, Mueller is about to make his biggest game-changing move yet.
Mueller Actually Honored An Un-Official Policy
Whether intentional or not, Mueller has been following an unofficial Justice Department policy for months.
That policy is to not take major actions on political investigations within 60 days of an election.
Mueller hasn’t made any major moves for some time.
He has been quietly interviewing a number of individuals of interest.
Most notable of those are Michael Cohen, Paul Manafort, Roger Stone, and Steve Bannon.
So there’s a lot Mueller may try to do in the next few days or weeks.
There’s little to go on what that will be, but there are a lot of possibilities.
Mueller’s Most Likely First Move
His first target will likely be Roger Stone.
Stone is a long-time Trump confidant and strategist.
Because of his reputation as a “dirty trickster,” his targeting isn’t overly surprising.
Mueller will likely go after Stone’s possible ties to WikiLeaks.
Prior to releasing hacked emails from the DNC, John Podesta, and Hillary Clinton, some believe Stone had prior knowledge.
There is no solid evidence, and it is all based on cryptic tweets by Stone prior to releases.
Stone strongly denies contact with WikiLeaks, or the website’s founder Julian Assange.
Assange also acknowledges that he had no contact with Stone.
Despite that, Mueller has so far interviewed 11 associates of Stone.
His goal seems to be to get a case to indict Stone.
That case can be as weak as the initial evidence used to start his investigation.
But once it begins it will give Mueller the ability to dig into Stone’s communications during the campaign.
And with his reputation as a “dirty trickster,” Mueller is likely hoping to find something damaging to either Stone himself, or President Trump.
Because at the end of the day, the investigation has always been about harming Trump.
Another Likely Mueller Target
Mueller will also likely have more information from Michael Cohen.
Cohen is Trump’s former lawyer and is believed to be the man who knows where all the bodies are buried, figuratively.
Mueller has also charged Cohen with crimes unrelated to his time with President Trump.
And Cohen is already agreeing to a plea deal with Mueller.
Since agreeing to that deal, Cohen has been attacking the president.
He is now a Democrat and is making crazy claims about statements made by Trump.
So there’s no telling what he will say to Mueller.
Or if what he says is even true.
After all, Cohen’s future lies in the hands of Mueller.
Somebody trying to regain freedom is likely to say anything.
And if he says something to harm Trump, Mueller will likely reward him with leniency.
So between Stone and Cohen, Mueller has a lot to work within the coming weeks.
There’s no telling what will happen, or if Mueller will find something to harm the president.
Do you think Mueller will be able to take down President Trump?
