The Democratic chairman of the U.S. House Judiciary Committee said on Wednesday an agreement had been reached to have Special Counsel Robert Mueller testify to Congress on his probe into Russian election interference and possible attempts by the President Donald Trump to impede the probe.

The signs are mounting that special counsel Robert Mueller may soon be issuing a report with the findings from his investigation which has been going on nearly two years.
The past week was a very eventful one for Mueller and his team of investigators, and there were several clues that their work may soon conclude with a final report to the Justice Department (DOJ).

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Donald Trump‘s Justice Department is unlikely to grant Democrats in Congress access to underlying evidence from Special Counsel ‘s probe of Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. election, a top congressional Republican said on Friday.
Ty Cobb, who represented the White House amid Robert Mueller’s ongoing probe into Russian election meddling, called the special counsel an “American hero” in a new ABC News interview. He also said that he does not agree with Donald Trump’s view that the Russia inquiry is a politically motivated “witch hunt” or “hoax.”
Donald Trump, his children, and his inner circle appear to be very confident that they will not be implicated in the report which may soon be issued by special counsel Robert Mueller.
However, according to a report published this morning by POLITICO, some of them might already have been indicted and don’t even know about it yet. And these indictments might include Jared Kushner, Steve Bannon and Hope Hicks as well as members of Trump’s immediate family.
When Matthew Whitaker assumed the role of acting attorney general in November 2018 after Attorney General Jeff Sessions was fired, it was part of a nefarious scheme by Donald Trump to subvert the Justice Department’s chain of command.
The federal government will soon begin selling off Paul Manafort’s assets which he accumulated after decades of shady and illegal lobbying work. After the process is completed it is expected that Bob Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election will have made a profit, bringing in more money than it has cost.
Our unhinged president Donald Trump went on Twitter again this morning to vent his anger and frustration at special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
At least 17 officials and advisers from President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign had direct or indirect contacts with Russian nationals before his inauguration, according to a new article from The New York Times. The Times analysis indicates that these Trump people were in contact with Russians over 100 times before Trump took office in January of 2017.
House Democrats are investigating acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker to determine if he has ever improperly shared information about special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation with President Trump or his lawyers.
Donald Trump may think he is winning his shutdown battle but a new poll from POLITICO shows that with each passing day his disapproval ratings are skyrocketing to new heights.
People who participated in the poll say that Trump’s record-long government shutdown is bad for the country, and they are also increasingly concerned about Trump’s relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The debate over making special counsel Robert Mueller’s report is rapidly heating up and may soon come to a boil.
There is some evidence that Mueller may finish his investigation soon, and while most Americans and members of Congress want to see the probe’s results, not everyone agrees that this is required, or even a good idea.
“The criminal probe by the Manhattan U.S. attorney’s office is examining whether some of the committee’s top donors gave money in exchange for access to the incoming Trump administration, policy concessions or to influence official administration positions, some of the people said.”
Most media reports leave out the long history of Trump’s Russia relations which go back decades. But knowing about this history is needed in order to understand all of the facts and allegations surrounding the Mueller probe into Russian interference in the 2016 elections. It also helps explain how Mueller will be able to soon take down not only Donald Trump but also several of his children.
The recent bad news for Mike Flynn is also bad news for Vice President Mike Pence, and may mean that he will soon be indicted by Bob Mueller.
Yesterday the judge responsible for sentencing Flynn suggested he was guilty of treason and should spend some serious time in jail. Also yesterday, one of Flynn’s partners in crime, Bijan Kian was arrested. These events can be interpreted to mean that Mueller is very close to indicting our Vice President.
The problem with this thinking is that it would mean Pence had to avoid not just controversy, but also criminal behavior. But it seems it hasn’t worked out that way.
