The resignation of former Attorney General Jeff Sessions immediately caused some to fear that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia and the Trump campaign was in jeopardy, but Senate Majority Mitch McConnell doesn’t think there is anything to worry about, according to CBS News.
“The President has said on multiple occasions the Mueller investigation should be completed,” McConnell said.
Shouldn’t be long now: Mueller and his team have reportedly begun writing the investigation’s final report, and CNN reported that Trump had begun reviewing his written answers to Mueller’s questions.
Liberals on edge: Liberal groups have already started organizing protests calling for Mueller’s protection after acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker replaced Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in overseeing the investigation.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Whitaker “should recuse himself from any involvement in Mueller’s investigation.” Pelosi also accused Trump of undermining the Mueller investigation by forcing Sessions out.
