Special counsel Robert Mueller spoke today for the first time since he began the Russia Investigation in 2017. He used the opportunity announce his resignation and the official closure of the special counsel office. Then, he took his parting jab at President Trump by highlighting he did not clear the President of obstruction and he was incapable of charging the President. It was clearly fodder for the left, a way for him to depart and save face.
He also noted that he would not be talking about this again.
Though his job is done, Mueller is far from being finished. Or, rather, DC isn’t finished yet with him. There are multiple investigations happening on both sides of the aisle. Democrats are spitting out subpoenas like sunflower seed shells after they didn’t get the recommendations they’ve been promising from he Mueller report. Meanwhile, Attorney General William Barr has assigned his own investigators to look into why the original spying on the Trump campaign occurred in the first place.
Will he testify before Congress? How involved will he be in the Attorney General’s investigation? According to Mueller, he wouldn’t testify to anything not in the report.
The most important takeaway is that the investigations into the Trump campaign should clearly be over, but the investigations into what prompted the Russia investigation before, during, and after the election should be ongoing until we know the truth. The good news on that last point is that it shouldn’t take anywhere near the two years and tens of millions of dollars spent on the original investigation.
Robert Mueller closed the door on the investigation and his involvement. As far as he’s concerned, it is done and more importantly, HE is done. Now, we’ll see if Congress pushes it further or not.
