Robert Mueller is about to finish his investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.
And the Left is jumping for joy with the prospect of the Special Counsel nailing President Trump to the wall.
But Trump could ruin Mueller’s witch hunt with one order.
As the countdown for wrapping up Mueller’s investigation begins, the question of what Mueller will publish rages on.
There’s another less-debated question, however.
How will Mueller publish his findings?
Mueller’s investigation conclusions may never see the light of day if Trump issues one order.
MSN reports, “Even if Trump doesn’t try to fire Mueller and disband his team – something he’s threatened several times – the president’s lawyers have indicated they’ll try to keep the public from learning whatever the special counsel’s office has discovered.”
“They’ve repeatedly said some information may be covered by executive privilege, the legal claim that safeguards the confidentiality of a president’s private conversations,” concludes MSN.
If Mueller tries to file his report and reveal it to the general public, President Trump could issue an executive order to prevent the findings from being declassified.
“We specifically reserved our right to object,” said President Trump’s lawyer and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
While it’s unclear when exactly Mueller will wrap up his work, it’s equally unclear what will happen to his findings once he compiles them into one set of documents.
What’s more, Trump’s team is drafting a report of their own refuting any claims the Special Counsel may make regarding allegations that Trump colluded with the Russian government to steal the 2016 election away from Hillary Clinton.
All of this has led to more calls for Trump’s impeachment by House Democrats.
Having retaken the House of Representatives last November, articles of impeachment have already been drafted and filed in the House of Representatives by a batch of ultra-liberal Representatives.
Impeachment charges aren’t the only thing House Democrats are working on.
Their own investigations and public hearings are already in the works, spearheaded by the House Committee on Intelligence and the House Oversight Committee.
The later Committee will host former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen in February.
Democrats hope to turn the Cohen hearings into another opportunity to bring the heat against the President, and drum up energy and support behind the 2020 Democratic primary to replace him in the White House.
Cohen pleaded guilty to several charges brought upon him thanks to the Mueller investigation, and he has since turned on the President by accusing him of breaking multiple federal laws while directing Cohen to do the same.
The President has denied all of these allegations and points to Cohen’s own record of lying to police and investigators as evidence that Cohen is attempting to save his own skin.
All of this points to 2019 being an explosive year for both Congress and the White House, to say nothing of Mueller himself.
