McConnell says he doesn't think there is "any chance" the president will end Mueller investigation

Source: CBS News

Attorney General Matthew Whitaker took charge of the investigation on Wednesday. Many Democrats and some Republicans raised concerns after Attorney General Jeff Sessions resigned under pressure, and oversight of the probe passed from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, that Special Counsel Robert Mueller would be hindered in conducting his investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

"The President has said on multiple occasions the Mueller investigation should be completed. He wish it would happen sooner. But I don't think there's any chance that the Mueller investigation will not be allowed to finish," McConnell told WVLK in an interview Thursday.

President Trump had repeatedly unloaded on Sessions for recusing himself from the Russia investigation, which allowed Rosenstein to appoint Mueller. The president promptly ousted Sessions after the midterm elections on Tuesday.

"It's pretty clear the president wanted to make a change and it occurred after the election. We'll see who he sends up. But I think any president should be given a lot of latitude on picking his own team," McConnell said. He added that he was sure whomever Mr. Trump nominated to replace Sessions would be "somebody who will be able to get confirmed."

How stupid does McTurtle think we are ?!?!?! It will be Whitaker doing the dirty work and he knows it, Tiny doesn't have the balls to do it himself.

1. Sounds like he's trying to play the delay game.

Doesn’t think there’s a problem here because he doesn’t WANT to deal with any problem here.

8. Trump might not end it, but he will choke it and/or change the direction to investigate Hillary

To investigate Hillary or the Democrats or some other bullshit.

That is the intent. To make sure his kids, himself, and his administration never suffer any consequences for their actions. Many in the GOP are complicit, so they will gladly obey.

14. IMO, the point isn't to fire Mueller.

Up until now, Roseenstein has overseen the investigation...everything that the Mueller team does, crosses his desk. Now Whitaker, as the acting AG, will be able to review any and all documents generated by the Mueller probe. Including subpoenas, indictments and reports. He will mainline all of that information to the White House. Obstruction on steroids.

18. He has said things like this all along.

No, Trump probably won't outright fire Mueller. But Whitaker will defund it, and redefine it to be strictly on two issues, and so end it.

McConnell is good with that. And Trump didn't directly "end" it or fire Mueller.

19. According to what i just seen on msnbc

trumps boy can put a stop to pretty much anything the investigation wants to do, the AG has the last say on what the investigation can proceed with.

20. Where's Lindsey Graham????

Didn't Lindsey say, “If Jeff Sessions is fired, there will be holy hell to pay.” So far no "holy hell" coming from Lindsey, just an online statement which said, “I look forward to working with President Trump to find a confirmable, worthy successor so that we can start a new chapter at the Department of Justice and deal with both the opportunities and challenges our nation faces.”



Wow! Way to pay hell there, Lindsey.
