Mueller Set To Confront Trump Lawyers In Pivotal Meeting ‘As Soon As Next Week’
Special Counsel Robert Mueller is preparing to meet with President Donald Trump’s lawyers next week as the probe into possible Russian collusion continues, CNN reported Friday.
Citing several sources familiar with the investigation, CNN reported that the meeting is more significant than past meetings “because it comes after the completion of interviews of White House personnel requested by the special counsel and after all requested documents have been turned over.”
Sources told CNN that Trump’s attorneys hope that this meeting means Mueller’s investigation is nearing the end, or, at the very least, they’re ready to say that they’re finished focusing on Trump or Pence.
Trump and his lawyers have said that this investigation into the Russia scandal is going to wrap up before the end of the year, but there is zero evidence that Mueller is anywhere near wrapping up his investigation. Common sense tells you that if the investigation were anywhere near completion, Congressional Republicans wouldn’t be trying so hard to get Mueller fired.
The meeting will happen as soon as next week, according to CNN.
