NADA? The National Anxious Democrats Association?
Some on the right just live in an absolute fantasy land. The public will never accept a conclusion of "Well, folks, we looked into it and there's nothing to see here. Move along." Especially when it's Trump's own DOJ doing the investigating and his hand-picked AG making the charging decisions. That said, never interrupt an opponent when they're making a mistake. By all means, try to bury the report.
For now, don’t sweat it. Everyone knows their place in history.
Two of Mueller's top deputies have made plans to leave the Special Counsel's team. Looks like things are wrapping up.
If I had a nickel for every prediction that the Mueller investigation was ending soon, I'd have like 50 cents and the investigation would still be going on. In other words, "We'll see."
Top Mueller Prosecutor Stepping Down In Latest Clue Russia Inquiry May Be Ending
One of the most prominent members of special counsel Robert Mueller's team investigating Russia's attack on the 2016 presidential election will soon leave the office and the Justice Department, two sources close to the matter tell NPR.
"Andrew is attacked because he is feared; those under investigation know just how effective he is," Ruemmler said. "He has not only peerless technical skills, but the fearlessness necessary for pursuing high profile, complex cases and a passionate commitment to seeing justice is done."
His leaving will follow the departure of the senior-most FBI agent working on the Mueller probe, who has taken his own next step. Special Agent in Charge David Archey started a new job on March 4 as head of the FBI's office in Richmond, Va.
Earlier this month, another special counsel prosecutor, Brandon Van Grack, moved on to lead a Justice Department effort to enforce compliance with the Foreign Agents Registration Act, a law that has become the subject of intense interest following charges against Manafort, his right-hand-man Richard Gates, and former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn.
Weissman was lead on the Manafort Gates cases. Those are winding down. Interesting to find out tomorrow if the SCO says that Gates is still cooperating on open matters. That is what they said in January. The SCO took the position that Flynn’s cooperation was finished even though the case against his partner is pending in Virginia and Flynn might still have to testify there. So, cooperation is measured by investigative cooperation, not potential trial testimony. Gates clearly has information pertinent to the investigation of the inaugural committee. Don’t know who has the lead as to open matters— Trump, Junior, Kushner, Prince etc. Clearly the SCO still has work to do because Stone is now set for trial in November.
Al Capone never committed any crimes other than tax evasion.
At least that is the assumption being made here when we diminish the voluminous financial crimes committed by Trump associates. Many which "coincidentally" were committed with Russian agents and mafia.
The desire to brush aside the rampant criminal behavor in this administration, and it's clear ties to Russia is purely partisan. Whether conspiracy can be proven related to Russian interference in the election is another issue...much like proving Capone's numerous criminal activities.
