Posted on 05/20/2018 2:55:18 PM PDT by bitt
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.

Mueller still planning to GET TRUMP!
If Giulianis suggestions include talking to Mule ear, Giuliani is a deep state owned rat.
Rudy said he’d have it wrapped up in a week or two. That was a month ago.
No one is going to jail however much we might wish ... the report be out just before the Fall elections and will dovetail with Mueller’s report which will hint at DJT doing something and that will be enough to trigger Dem take over of both Houses and signal the start of Impeachment proceedings and the resulting Constitutional Crisis.
Traitors do not get to dictate the terms of anything. Hey Mueller it’s unconditional surrender or death!
Never ever believe a ‘Special Persecutor’
Mueller going to stop milking tax payers for all he can get? Sept 1 I doubt it. He enjoys the notoriety to much.
Mueller is about to get the Schneiderman treatment!
SEPTEMBER! What do these people actually do on a day by day basis? In the 8 hour workday Monday WHAT will Mueller be doing? WHAT? What can they possibly do to fill the workaday time between now and FECKING september!?
Just in time for the elections..........and he will find something the left can use against Trump...even if it is false!......that is my take anyway
Timing - that’s why. Do I see an October Surprise on its way.
If Trump plays his card right he will recite Hitlary’s famous “I don’t recall” line to every question Mueller puts forth. Trump should give Mueller absolutely “ZERO”.
Well, that was one “probe” that went nowhere, so now it’s obstruction. By Sept. 1 there will still be nothing, so they’ll find something else to “probe”.
Good advice about criticizing anyone. That way they’re a mile away and have no shoes.
Doesn’t the “obstruction” case boil down to a few tweets and a couple of meetings and public statements? How can there be enough material to investigate for 14 more weeks? If something is that hard to find, how can it possibly have amounted to a serious attempt at obstruction?
... and then spend 6 years writing his report, leaking the whole time.
who will begin an investigation into the MSM swamp?
Wikipedia: Michael S. Schmidt
He won a Pulitzer Prize for breaking the news that President Trump had asked the F.B.I. director James B. Comey for a loyalty pledge, and to close the federal investigation into his former national security adviser. That story led the Justice Department to appoint a special counsel to investigate President Trump...
Schmidt has been one of the Times’ lead reporters on the federal and Congressional investigations into connections between Donald J. Trump’s associates and the Russians...
On March 5, 2017, Schmidt broke the story that the F.B.I. director James B. Comey had asked the Justice Department to publicly refute Trump’s claims that President Obama had him wired tapped during the 2016 campaign...
Members of the far right have tried to claim that stories Schmidt wrote about connections between Trump’s associates and the Russians help bolster Trump’s claim that Obama had him wiretapped. The Times public editor said the right’s claims are “a bold exaggeration.”
Haberman’s preference for Hillary is well-known.
