That guy's job was to sack that one asshole.
They are bringing up the next hitter.
And eventually some kid named Donny Donowitz.
Something about taking a swing at the top man.

I don't buy it, honestly .

As much as I'd love to see it, I don't think he is indicted.

You mean the guy who was behind investigating Manafort?

............The investigation that just produced a conviction and 7.5 year sentence for federal crimes?

Durr, why would he be done?

Question... is there a requirement that a pardon is made highly public, or announced?

Just curious whether an end run was/might be made

Didn't Mueller empower the members of his team with the same powers that he has, leading to a team of batmen?  Do they retain their powers after going back to their original positions allowing them to continue following cases while the Mueller investigation itself wraps up?

I just want to imagine a multiverse of batmen routing out all of the evil that is infecting the government.

How can you be sure of that? If the AG deems it classified (which I'm almost sure he will, at least the most damning parts), anyone who releases it to the public is risking a lot.
 
2019-03-14 09:01:05 AM  
It would be so, so good if the report comes with an indictment for Trump. Not just because it will help protect our Republic from the grifter in chief, but the entertainment value of listening to the exploding heads on AM radio would the most profound noise of my adult life.
 
2019-03-14 09:05:04 AM  
the investigations are ongoing. it's just that the Manafort stuff is wrapped up mostly and Mueller has handed off a lot of stuff to the other FBI divisions to prosecute. His original mission of investigating "collusion" is probably wrapped up too. But the obstruction stuff is still happening.

Yeah, I'm sure the Senate will get right on that, and Trump will sign it with a televised flourish in the Oval.

// can't some enterprising Congressperson just read it into the record to escape consequences?
// any retiring Senators wanna make a filibuster out of it?

i think there might be enough support for it in the senate. McConnell could balk. And Trump vetoing it would just look awful, even for him

He could go the way Bush did with Scooter Libby and simply commute Manafort's jail sentences.

Sorry, autocorrect. LEAK. If DOJ doesn't make it public, Dems will subpoena the report and make it public. Hell, I fully suspect  committees to call Mueller to testify

My only hesitation is that he wouldn't want to leave Trump with the sense that he thought of him as a Caesar-like figure.

Honestly, I don't think Mueller would allow historical allusion to influence his work, and if something happens tomorrow, the date on the calendar is mere coincidence. It would be catnip for historians, though (and probably kooks/conspiracy theorists, unfortunately).

kkinnison: No.

Mueller is funded through September, but the grand jury is out in July (they've already been extended for 1 6-month period and my understanding is that they can't be extended again)
