A Bang or a Fizzle - Is Mueller Ready to Talk?
Bloomberg is reporting that special counsel, Robert Mueller, is about to deliver his report into the two key aspects of his investigation - dealings between the Trump campaign and the Russians and the possibility that Trump obstructed justice in the investigation into these matters.
From the mountain of investigative news reports to the stack of books published over the past year to documentaries such as "Active Measures," a great deal of dirt on Trump and Company has already been released and it powerfully supports the notion of Trump as a puppet of the Kremlin thanks to a lengthy history of laundering money for the Russian mafia.
To what's already in the public sphere, Mueller has banking records from the Bank of Cyprus and, more importantly, Deutsche Bank, along with the evidence of cooperating witnesses and probably Donald Trump's tax returns. From this Mueller has obtained a good many Grand Jury indictments against Trump associates and Kremlin operatives.
Mueller's report is supposed to go to the deputy AG, Rosenstein and on to Congress. How much of the contents, if any, will surface in public remains to be seen.
