Special counsel Robert Mueller completes investigation

Robert Mueller and Donald Trump

Mueller has finished the investigation and submitted a report to Attorney General William Barr, according to Politico.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has finished his investigation into the Russian Federation probe after an investigation lasting nearly two years. "Attorney General Barr will determine the appropriate next steps", said the president's personal attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Jay Sekulow in a joint statement.

In deciding what to release, Barr may have to confront thorny legal issues involving secrecy of grand jury testimony, protecting classified information, communications with the White House possibly subject to the principle of executive privilege shielding certain information from disclosure, and safeguarding confidential reasons for why some individuals were not charged. Longtime Trump confidant Roger Stone was charged in January with obstruction, false statements and witness tampering.

"We urge the Department of Justice to release the report swiftly, once it has minimally redacted any information that is properly withheld".

Former FBI Director James Comey said Friday that he hopes that President Donald Trump won't be "impeached and removed from office before the end of his term".

The prospect of no further indictments could present a massive boon to President Trump and many of those surrounding him.

No matter the findings in Mueller's report, the investigation has already illuminated Russia's assault on the American political system, painted the Trump campaign as eager to exploit the release of hacked Democratic emails and exposed lies by Trump aides aimed at covering up their Russia-related contacts.

"Even though I believe Mr. Trump is morally unfit to be president of the United States, I'm not rooting for Mr. Mueller to demonstrate that he is a criminal", writes Comey.

In prosecuting Manafort, Mueller showed how the former campaign chairman made millions of dollars working for pro-Russian politicians in Ukraine, while also exposing his ties to a consultant who the special counsel said was connected to Russian intelligence. I think the public has the right to know, especially given all the time, money, and drama associated with Mueller's investigation.
