    I figure Mueller has 'till the new Congress is seated. Even Trump wouldn't make a recess appointment and have the new lackey fire Mueller now, IMO. But yeah, televised hearings will come pretty soon.

    Hopefully Mueller has everything important on a few memory sticks so he can take up where he left off when the new Democratic house hires him

    You're giving Trump way too much credit for 'restraint'... he doesn't know the meaning of the word.

    I suspect that he's going to try to purge Mueller before the new Congress takes over.

    THIS could be a really, really big deal.

    Why on earth would he NOT do that?

    Trump is scared sh!tless. Frightened narcissists will do things that more normal people wouldn't contemplate. He may think it's his only chance.

    I'm not sure that they will fire Mueller, I think they might just pull his resources very quietly.

    This.

    If Mueller delivers his report now or after the House switches in January, the Democrats will still get the report.

    Sweet Jesus I hope they don't move to impeach without a flaming bright set of proof of high crimes and misdemeanors. I hope they pick up the investigation wherever Mueller ends or is forced to end.

    Leading Republicans are on record saying they will not tolerate firing Mueller.

    So, when he does, what are they going to do? How will they justify it?

    Were they're fingers crossed behind their back by chance? Only reason they said it was to make sure the dems didn't write a bill guaranteeing Mueller's job was safe.

    Mitch is a weasel. Sadly, Lindsay has trended that way too. I have no hope that they would protect Mueller.

    That's the point, they don't have to justify it!

    From Whitaker's mouth

    Acting AG Matt Whitaker on CNN, July 2017: "I could see a scenario where Jeff Sessions is replaced with a recess appointment and that attorney general doesn’t fire Bob Mueller, but he just reduces his budget to so low that his investigation grinds to almost a halt.”

    If they pull funding, we'll just start a go-fund-me account. The investigation will go on, the truth will come out, and it will be money well spent even if they don't find anything incriminating. The American people deserve to know for sure that our president is acting within the law and that justice is, in fact, for all.
    In the US this perverted idea of “blood and soil” over “constitutional principles” is the most radical and anti-democratic and anti-Conservative idea I have heard in my lifetime.

    I believed then, and I believe now, Mueller should have issued a subpoena to Trump a month or more ago. That would have dramatically changed the dynamics

    Maybe Mueller hasn’t found any compelling reason to subpoena Trump. Maybe Mueller doesn’t need to subpoena Trump. Maybe Mueller didn’t want to take any steps to affect the midterm elections like Comey did. Maybe Mueller is smart enough to make sure his investigation will go on regardless of Trump’s interference. Certainly if Trump fires Mueller today or reduces his budget or any other steps which have been suggested here and elsewhere, then the House of Representatives will continue the probe, probably by hiring Mueller to work for a House investigative committee. Stop panicking.

    I heard one opinion that if Mueller got messed with, the House could hire him to continue under their auspices.

    The President said he could fire Muler and it would save you some money if he did, but he won’t. He’s got no reason to fear Muler, and he won’t.

    Rosenstein is making a regularly scheduled trip to the White House, just like last time you guys freaked out at ‘breaking news: Rosenstein to White House’.

    Muler doesn’t report to Congress. He reports to the AG.

    All speculating on subpoena for tax returns should know, and remember for personal security, that revealing those types of documents, without authorization, is illegal. You wouldn’t want to participate in a crime, would you?

    Did you hear, the Pope is Jewish mdh?He said that because the Democrats wanted to pass a bill that would protect Mueller from what Trump has wanted to do for two years, FIRE HIM! McConnell promised or said the same exact thing and I don't trust that old POS one little bit.
