Senior DOJ Official on Mueller Report: No More Indictments

“Republicans are trying to conduct a scandal around Mueller …”

Hot on the heels of news that Robert Mueller has submitted his final report on the nearly two-year long investigation into President Donald Trump and Russia, a senior Department of Justice official told ABC News on Friday that the former Special Counsel will not be recommending any new indictments.

While no details have yet been made available regarding Mueller’s report, Attorney General Robert Barr revealed in a letter Friday that he might be able to advise lawmakers “of the Special Counsel’s principal conclusions as soon as this weekend.”

In a statement issued by Trump’s attorneys, Jay Sekulow and Rudy Giuliani, said they were “pleased that the Office of Special Counsel has delivered its report to the Attorney General pursuant to the regulations.”

Prominent House Democrats have already called for the publicizing of the Special Counsel’s report, announcing their intention to subpoena for the document in the event it is not made available to Congress.

In a joint statement, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said “it is imperative for Mr. Barr to make the full report public and provide its underlying documentation to Congress.”

Congressional Democrats, as well as the party’s supporters, have long pinned their hopes on the Mueller investigation the key to exposing Trump’s alleged collusion with Russia.

Grassroots anti-Trump organizations, such as the Democratic Coalition, have defended Mueller against Republican attacks on his credibility, anticipating that the Special Counsel’s investigation would turn up damning evidence of the president’s alleged wrongdoing.

So far, at least, Democrats have been disappointed. Meanwhile, many on the right who argued that the Russia investigation was a politically motivated sham, are celebrating early reports as vindication of their perspective.
