Skip to comments.Mueller taps more prosecutors to help with growing Trump probe
Posted on 07/05/2018 6:27:08 AM PDT by Coronal
Special counsel Robert Mueller is tapping additional Justice Department resources for help with new legal battles as his year-old investigation of Russian interference with the 2016 election continues to expand.
As Mueller pursues his probe, he's making more use of career prosecutors from the offices of U.S. attorneys and from Justice Department headquarters, as well as FBI agents -- a sign that he may be laying the groundwork to hand off parts of his investigation eventually, several current and former U.S. officials said.

Where does his operating budget come from? This is a lib activist jobs project at taxpayer expense.
DOJ welfare for political opponents to the president.
I blame the GOP for this continuing.
A story of lawyers lining their pockets.
This is just ridiculous. Either you have something or you don’t. If you do, lay it out there to explain why this is going to get drug out ad nauseam.
Oh my, and we all here know how this has been such a popular and engaging thing for the voting public, as newsrooms across America would insist that it is so.
They havent found any evidence of Russian collusion and its a good sign this farce is winding down.
The Deep State knows bringing down Trump is going nowhere.
Trump needs to end this POS pronto. It has gotten to the point where it is now designed to permanently hobble the administration into the next presidential election. IOW, this is subversion. Prosecutors have immunity when operating within their scope, however, it is clearly now moving into the realm beyond that scope, albeit they have resisted sharing exactly what was the original scope. In fact by making “referrals” now, it is a way around the scope angle.
Time to put Mueller and Rosenstein to bed. They haven’t found any witches, they’re not going to find any witches, and they’re wasting OUR money.
I love the left touting this 20 indictments crap, like theyre a basket of deplorable Trump staff, when 16 of those are the Russian social media firm nonsense.
They need to bring on more people because the people they charged are fighting back. They didn’t expect a fight. The prosecutors will lose.
Quite the opposite.. The Deep State is engaged in an existential crisis and will go down fighting until the last breath.
Winding down? According to the article, Mueller is ramping it up.
Looks like getting ready for the legal stage of this, moving on from the investigations stage. It may more from being a jobs program for prosecutors to being a jobs program for prison guards.
Wonder if these appointments are bribes to keep people quiet. Or payoffs for services rendered....
“a sign that he may be laying the groundwork to hand off parts of his investigation eventually, several current and former U.S. officials said.”
More a sign that Mueller is metathesizing back into the DoJ so that the “insurance policy” can go on after he is terminated.
If Mueller has found so much crime to go after, why weren’t the Justice Department and FBI doing their jobs in the first place?
As a taxpayer, this is starting to annoy me.
According to this article it appears that Mueller is hiring these additional attorneys to fight the unexpected challenges to his indictments.
Ridiculous...this witch hunt needs to end....NOW.
