It Turns Out That Mueller Isn’t Done Yet, As His Grand Jury Is Still Working

The Republican claims that Robert Mueller is done aren’t true, as his grand jury is still hard at work on ongoing cases.

Politico reported:

The special counsel grand jury that investigated Russian collusion into the 2016 presidential election is “continuing robustly” despite the end of Robert Mueller’s probe, a federal prosecutor said in court Wednesday.

The revelation — while laced with uncertainty — indicates that the ongoing cases Mueller handed off after concluding his probe could still feature significant developments, legal experts said.

Trump and the Republicans are trying to proclaim the Russia investigation finished when it turns out that this isn’t the case. Mueller is done with his part of the process, but the evidence he gathered and cases that he built have been turned over to others so that they can pick up where he left off and move forward. The Mueller investigation has entered a new phase. One that Donald Trump wants to pretend doesn’t exist.

Trump’s “total exoneration” has fallen apart, and what is left behind is an ongoing investigation and prosecution that is likely to cause the president headaches through his 2020 reelection campaign.

No collusion and total exoneration have been replaced by a robust grand jury and more prosecutions.
