    Acting AG Whitaker To Take Authority On Mueller Probe From Rosenstein

    “I don’t see any current reason or good reason that Bob Mueller shouldn’t stay in that special counsel role,” Whitaker told CNN’s Jake Tapper.

    “There is no honest person that sits in the world of politics and in the world of law that can find anything wrong with Bob Mueller,” he said.

    Whitaker, a former U.S. attorney in Iowa who ran for political office as a Republican in 2014, also argued in an op-ed for CNN in August 2017 that Mueller would be crossing a line if he launched an investigation into the finances of Trump and his family.

    “Mueller has come up to a red line in the Russia 2016 election-meddling investigation that he is dangerously close to crossing,” Whitaker wrote.

    “That goes beyond the scope of the appointment of the special counsel.”
    ----------------------------------

    Well anything will be better than having the 100% useless AG Sessions who let the deep state hoodwink him like that.

    Looking at some other stuff about this guy it at least sounds like he is the type that would tell Mueller he is out of bounds trying to do a 100% fishing expedition which he has been doing up to this point. I also think he would be the type to laugh in Mueller's face if he wanted to do some joke lying to the investigator charge on Trump's kid or Roger Stone when the charge is just he said/she said with no concrete evidence of lying.

    Does Mueller already have a grand jury indictment on something silly like that?

    Will he tell Mueller when he wants to release his final joke report that he isn't going to allow some political hit piece to be released like that when there is no legal basis for it - like Mueller releasing a joke document to Congress claiming obstruction by firing Comey or some nonsense like that?

    I don't really expect much to change regarding Mewler. Hope Whitaker reins in the investigation in search of a crime nonsense, but I'm not going to bet on it.

      I think this is trumps response to the democratic controlled house. They start investigating him, he’s gonna open up a whole lot of old investigations.

      The criminal referrals on McCabe, Comey, Orr and others get processed quickly and arrests are made.

        I think he will reject just political indictments if they haven't already been handed down. I also think he will not let Mueller release some mess claiming a joke obstruction case but with how Washington works I think they may agree to not charge Comey and them for that illegal spying with no probable cause to just end this nonsense. That would be a travesty I think as a message needs to be sent to the DOJ that conduct like that will never be tolerated. It was worse than Watergate.

        Mueller already said his report is ready.

        You dont report and finish the case if there are still are people to incestigate or indictments to make.

        Main Justice will handle arresting the Clintonistas/Baraqis that perpertrated this.

          I hope you are right. Its just we have seen their criminal conduct ignored so many times in recent years.

            Several have already been referred. Most have been fired already. The timing just needs to be right.

            I sure hope you are right. I am guessing you heard that from some federal lawyer.

            Look, if it is proven that Trump colluded with the Russians in some kind of quid-pro-quo then EVERY American should want him out of office. BUT, if he didn't and all that comes of this is some Manafort tax evasion charges from ten years ago etc., then the Democrats associated with putting the country though this mess should be shot.

              Youre forgetting the John Doe rissians who made facebook pages and said bad things about Shrillary and Drumpf.

              I hope the investigation will be completed very shortly, or a interim report be required including the remaining items, a time frame and number of individuals to be involved. In addition any other issues should be returned to the justice department.

              This acting AG appeared on CNN quite a few times as their conservative guest when they had lawyers from each side arguing about whether Trump obstructed Justice by firing Comey etc.. He seemed to be pretty rational and was good at making the lefty lawyers arguments that it was obstruction look pretty silly.

              Maybe my hope is not shared. My hope is for a second special prosecutor to investigate FISA, the FBI, and other Obama administration illegalities. Between the two of them, we might get the swamp partially clean.

                Stuff like this gives me a little hope those crooks might actually be arrested in 2019 for what they pulled. I think Trump is the type that he can keep things from getting out on what is actually going to happen. Maybe that Obama reference about other things is spygate. I hope at least Comey and Sally Yates are arrested in addition to McCabe etc. Since the Dems just keep pushing their mess maybe there won't be some truce on all this crap.

                You dont need a special counsel.

                The US govt invesitgates, fires and prosecutes employees or former employees for their criminal activity every day. The govt already has tens of thousands of prosecutors ready, chomping at the bit really, to do this job. In fact, open sources say the IG has already made criminal referrals for this.

                Wish they spend less time chomping at the bit and more time prosecuting.
