Mueller set to deliver key findings in Russia probe — but not until after the midterm election: report

Published

on

Special counsel Robert Mueller is ready to deliver his key findings — but not until after the midterms — in the investigation into Trump campaign collusion with Russia during the 2016 election, according to two U.S. officials.

One of the officials said Mueller is close to announcing whether his investigators found clear examples of collusion during the campaign and whether President Donald Trump obstructed justice, reported Bloomberg News.

It’s not clear whether Mueller’s findings will be made public if he doesn’t obtain unsealed indictments, however.

The regulations of the investigation permit Mueller to reveal his findings only to his U.S. Justice Department supervisor, who currently is deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein.

The probe’s supervisor then has discretion over what is given to Congress and what is revealed to the public.

Trump has indicated he might replace Attorney General Jeff Sessions after the Nov. 6 election, which could allow his replacement to take over for Rosenstein in overseeing the probe, and the deputy attorney general could resign or be fired by the president after the midterms.

Either scenario could greatly impact the probe’s future.

Mueller has secured more than two dozen indictments and guilty pleas so far in the investigation, which the president frequently complains is a “witch hunt.”

Immediately after the shooting, which allegedly stemmed from a fight over the baby's father and took place outside a Dollar General in Pleasant Grove, in December, prosecutors announced their intention to charge Jones for having a miscarriage.
