WASHINGTON The special counsel plans to finish by Sept. 1 its investigation into whether President Trump obstructed the Russia inquiry, according to the presidents lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani, who said on Sunday that waiting any longer would risk improperly influencing voters in the midterm elections in November.
The office of the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, shared its timeline about two weeks ago amid negotiations over whether Mr. Trump will be questioned by investigators, Mr. Giuliani said, adding that Mr. Muellers office said the date was contingent on Mr. Trump agreeing to be interviewed. A spokesman for the special counsels office declined to comment.
Mr. Giulianis comments were an apparent attempt to publicly pressure Mr. Mueller amid their interview negotiations. He urged that the investigation be wrapped up as soon as possible, pointing as a cautionary tale to the revelation by the former F.B.I. director James B. Comey in the last days of the 2016 presidential race that he was reopening the investigation into Hillary Clintons use of a private email server. Mr. Comeys announcement is widely blamed by Democrats for costing her the election. The F.B.I. found no wrongdoing.

Yeah, well NYT, with info breaking and the IG’s report coming out, we should be done with this,like, yesterday...
What obstruction probe? I thought this was a Russian Collusion probe?
Just enough time for the MSM Elite false CYA narratives to be written, and enough time to influence the 18 elections... their plan all along.
Toss em all out, now Trump.
How about Mueller resign in disgrace as his “investigation” is nothing more than a continuation of the #RussiaCollusionHoax?”
They mis-spelled “collusion”
Mr. President, do not let the weasel Mueller interview you, by any means. It’s a setup. Don’t take the bait.
Its a “Damn it, Hillary Clinton should have been President, America could have been officially Commie but Trump won” kind of probe
Why not June 1?!
——What obstruction probe? I thought this was a Russian Collusion probe?-——
NYT’s is changing the narrative....
Russian collusion probe is obviously a farce, so change the narrative....
Interesting it ‘s Sept 1st.... 8 to 10 weeks from the midterms....
Plenty of time to impact the election with fake obstruction charges...
Mueller can’t stop the IG investigations and it will look bad when his own witnesses will start going to jail.
My guess is the Democrats will have enough “stuff” they can turn into dirt for the November elections. Since there was no “Russian collusion”, Trump obstruction is now the “crime”? It was never about any Russian collusion to begin with. But, see how much time AND money was wasted DISTRACTING us from the real crimes of Hillary, Obama, Clapper, Comey, etc, etc?
Obviously, refusing to be interviewed by Mueller is, in his eyes, obstruction of justice. Giuliani should request all questions in writing. No interview.
Stall and delay.....that’s the MO. Trump team needs to do something to stop this rollercoaster from derailing the House and Senate. NOW
How many MORE peple can he RUIN and BANKRUPT and Scare the Bejesus out of their Wives and KIDS?
Sept 1 is my birthday, and I’d consider that a fine birthday gift!
Late enough to influence the Nov. elections, but early enough to avoid the scathing denunciation of Comey’s announcement in the week before the election.
What’s the hurry?
