Speculation about  when the Mueller probe will come to an end has heated up. It could be any time now, people inside the Beltway say.

But former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara of New York sees it differently.

On Sunday, Bharara said it doesn’t appear that special counsel Robert Mueller is finishing up his probe.

“I’m an outsider now, and I don’t still run the Southern District of New York, and I’m not aware of what’s going on with various investigations that sometimes intersect with the special counsel’s investigation,” Bharara said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

“But I think people should view with some skepticism the notion that gets breathlessly reported every week that the Mueller investigation is coming to an end.”
