Robert Mueller keeps shrewdly, doggedly doing his job. Thanks to his inept big mouth - frantic aides are reportedly following a defensive game plan best summed up as "Dear God keep him away from Twitter" - Trump is now being investigated for obstruction of justice, the NSA has said he also asked them to please say he knows nothing, nyet about Russia, and Mueller is said to be wisely focusing on money laundering, seeking to track collusion by following the money that likely facilitated it.
An intriguing piece in Wired offers a detailed look at the powerhouse team Mueller is assembling, a team that happily promises to bring Trump and his cohorts a world of hurt. Among the top legal minds he's recruited are a famed litigator who helped prosecute Watergate and specializes in campaign finance research, a former general counsel at the FBI who led the Justice Department’s fraud unit and Enron Task Force, FBI agents who have spent years pursuing al Qaeda suspects and boast vital global connections, a Justice Department attorney with deep experience in money laundering and organized crime, including in eastern Europe, and a top appellate attorney who's argued over 100 Supreme Court cases - without notes - deemed "the most brilliant and most knowledgeable federal criminal lawyer in America - period.” Arrayed against "possibly the most high-powered and experienced team of investigators ever assembled by the Justice Department" is the smearing likes of Newt Gingrich, sputtering that Mueller is "the ti[p (sic) of the deep state spear." Oh little Donny, may your goose be swiftly and thoroughly cooked.
