How Democrats Could Save the Mueller Probe if Trump’s Administration Tries to End It

Special counsel Robert Mueller

Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation into Russian meddling is at risk of being sabotaged by President Trump’s administration.

A day after the midterm elections, Trump forced Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign and replaced him with a loyalist, Matthew Whitaker, who could try to end the investigation.

Republicans in the Senate blocked a bill to protect the special counsel probe on Wednesday, and this morning Trump unleashed a series of tweets calling the probe “A TOTAL WITCH HUNT LINK TO NO OTHER IN AMERICAN HISTORY.”

But Democrats, who now control the House of Representatives, still have recourse. Slate reports that Democrats could protect the investigation by creating a “Special Select Committee on Russian Election Interference” and appointing Mueller and his prosecutors as the lead investigators. 

Or Democrats could subpoena details of the investigation and hire him to complete the probe.

Without offering evidence, President Trump accused special counsel Robert Mueller of “horribly threatening” witnesses in the investigation into Russian interference.

“The inner workings of the Mueller investigation are a total mess. They have found no collusion and have gone absolutely nuts,” Trump tweeted Thursday. “They are screaming and shouting at people, horribly threatening them to come up with the answers they want.”

Trump criticized the probe, calling special counsel prosecutors “a disgrace to our Nation” and accusing Mueller by name of being “highly conflicted.”

“A TOTAL WITCH HUNT LIKE NO OTHER IN AMERICAN HISTORY!” Trump tweeted.

The tweets come one day after the Republican-controlled Senate blocked an initiative to protect the special counsel’s investigation.
