Is Mueller done and packing up his office?

Or standing by for further orders?

Or busy working on others things that haven't been turned in yet?

Seems like if he is truly done, maybe it's time for Congress to give him additional things to investigate. God knows there is plenty more.

1. The Mueller Report Is Done, But Investigations Related To Trump Will Go On

Robert Mueller may have completed his report, but other investigations into President Trump are expected to carry on for months.

There are, broadly, two kinds: those being undertaken from within the executive branch and those being run by members of Congress mostly Democrats in control of major committees in the House.

..........................................

The Justice Department is undertaking several cases related to Trump that are likely to continue:

Prosecutors have charged GOP political consultant Roger Stone with obstruction, witness tampering and lying to Congress in connection with his work in 2016 on behalf of Trump's campaign. Stone has pleaded not guilty, and that case could go to trial later this year.

The case against the Russian company Concord Management and Consulting, which has been linked to Russia's social media disinformation campaign, continues in Washington, D.C.

Prosecutors are charging former business partners of Trump's ex-national security adviser Michael Flynn in a case in the Eastern District of Virginia.

2. I guess I'm asking about MR Mueller as opposed to his report

From what this article indicates, it sounds like his work is done and hes back to retirement?

3. I have no idea. If congress sees the need for another independent counsel, then I'm sure

they'll appoint one. Maybe Mueller, maybe someone else.

I imagine they want to see the results of the report first. As the article states, other jurisdictions are picking up the loose ends.

Why the concern that Dems aren't keeping him on the payroll?

4. It's not a matter of "concern"

I'm sure that Mueller is extremely wealthy and has a great pension.

My question is truly apolitical in that I'm just wondering how such a thing works.

5. I'm not clear on what it is that you are unclear about.

Mueller was hired to investigate Russian interference in the election, and was given permission to pursue or hand off to other jurisdictions evidence of other illegal or questionable activities.

His part of the investigation has concluded.

If Congress sees a need for another special counsel, they will appoint one, be it Muellar or someone else.

What he does as a private citizen, wealthy or not, is now his own business.
