    Thumbs up A huge clue about Mueller's endgame


    https://www.axios.com/robert-mueller...1244fb9e3.html

    Axios has learned that special counsel Robert Mueller has focused on events since the election not during the campaign in his conversations with President Trump's lawyers. The top two topics that Mueller has expressed interest in so far: the firings of FBI director James Comey and national security adviser Michael Flynn.

    Why it matters: That suggests a focus on obstruction of justice while in office, rather than collusion with Russia during the campaign. But both sagas are interwoven with Russia: Trump himself has linked Comey's firing to Russia, and Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about conversations with the Russian ambassador during the transition.

    The Mueller and Trump teams are hoping to work out the specifics of a presidential interview within the next few weeks.
    Trump isn't our 45th American president; he's our 1st Russian one.

    I'm sure this will get the usual, "Who cares if he obstructed justice - the investigation was supposed to be about collusion" spin...

    ... that will come out also, not that they will agree.

    Who said it was about collusion? Oh, Forest trump said that. That does not make it true. Mueller has an open investigation taking it, wherever it goes.

    Wow, what a pivot from the Russian collusion hysteria that we've been hearing for well over a year now. How is legally discharging your duties obstructing justice?

    because there never was any Russian collusion! So Mueller has to grovel for process crimes

    It seems to me there are three areas of investigation, collusion, obstruction and money laundering, any of the three could stand alone or all together.

    Trumps hysteria. He is the one that said collusion over and over. Trump is vulnerable for money laundering and obstruction.

    I think by now they are into a broader scope on the Money Laundering than just visa vi the Russia investigation.

    Collusion has been going on for a while, both before and after the election, but that's just my opinion, I'm not in Mueller's Meetings ... and neither is anyone else on this Forum.
