Indictments? Final report? White House braces for Mueller

09 November, 2018, 05:54
Special counsel Robert Mueller and his team of prosecutors are in the process of writing a final report on the almost 18-month long investigation into Russian meddling during the 2016 election, sources tell ABC News.
Rosenstein appointed Mueller as special counsel after Sessions recused himself and after Trump fired former FBI Director James Comey.
CNN and CBS News, both quoting unnamed sources, say Bondi is among those who might replace Jeff Sessions, who was forced to resign on Wednesday. The firm's name was changed to Hagenow & Gustoff when Whitaker left in September of past year to become Sessions' chief of staff at the Justice Department. He looked close to tears as he was applauded by the staff on his way out of the justice department building on Wednesday night.
Nevertheless he appealed to Republicans not "beholden" to Donald Trump to reign in any attempt to fire Mueller.
Trump Jr. could join his father's former campaign chair, Paul Manafort, former national security adviser Michael Flynn and others who've been indicted or pleaded guilty to charges stemming from Mueller's probe. This left the investigation in the hands of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
He has also repeatedly criticized Mueller's Russian Federation investigation, which the Justice Department oversees, both in appearances as a CNN commentator and on Twitter. Clovis, who later worked in Trump's presidential campaign, has been interviewed as part of Mueller's Russian Federation probe.
Mitt Romney, the Republican Party's 2012 presidential nominee who won the Utah race on Tuesday to become a United States senator, also said Mueller's probe should not be affected by Sessions' dismissal.

The Mueller investigation is looking into alleged foreign government efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election and includes possible links between Trump's campaign and the Russian government.
He could also refuse to sign off on a subpoena of Trump if the president refuses to voluntarily speak to investigators. It undermines the rule of law.
The resignation was the culmination of a toxic relationship that frayed just weeks into the attorney general's tumultuous tenure, when he stepped aside from the Mueller investigation.
As reason for his recusal, Sessions cited news reports of two undisclosed meetings he had with Sergey Kislyak, then Russia's ambassador to Washington.
As acting attorney general, Whitaker now has the power to wrest oversight away from Rosenstein, and take charge himself.
