ABC: Mueller Unlikely to Condemn Trump in Report, No New Indictments Planned

1545

Special counsel Robert Mueller could be done issuing subpoenas for the Russia investigation and his report will not be allowed to publicly disparage anyone not charged, according to a new report.

Jonathan Karl of ABC News cited a source as saying it is looking like Mueller and his team is finished subpoenaing people as part of the probe that began in 2017 over allegations the Trump campaign worked with the Russians to win the 2016 election.

Moreover, no new indictments are expected, Karl reports.

“The bottom line: Do not expect a harsh condemnation of President Donald Trump or any of his associates if they have not been charged with crimes,” Karl writes.

This is not the first time Karl has downplayed the contents of the coming report from Mueller.

In January, he said the report is “almost certain to be anti-climatic.”

Karl also cited a letter Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein wrote to then-Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley last year that gave some clues into the Russia probe.

“Punishing wrongdoers through judicial proceedings is only one part of the Department’s mission,” Rosenstein wrote. “We also have a duty to prevent the disclosure of information that would unfairly tarnish people who are not charged with crimes.

“In fact, disclosing uncharged allegations against American citizens without a law-enforcement need is considered to be a violation of a prosecutor’s trust.”

Rosenstein added later, “No matter who an investigation involves — an ordinary citizen, a local or state politician, a campaign official, a foreign agent, an officer of the federal legislative, executive, or judicial branch — agents and prosecutors are obligated to protect its confidentiality.”

Trump has long said he did not collude with the Russians, and no evidence that indicates the opposite has been made public. It is still unclear when Mueller’s investigation will wrap up.

“Sources familiar with the investigation believe there are no more indictments coming from the special counsel,” Karl concludes. “If Mueller follows the guidance of the man who appointed him and supervised his investigation, he cannot publicly disparage those who have not been charged with a crime.”

  1. This is one time I am pulling on ABC news! I hope Jonathan Karl is exactly correct with his reporting on the probable Mueller report! Just as we hoped and expected but, coming from ABC, (MSM) it is the best news EVER! Oooooooorrrraaa!

  2. Baloney- he has just begun, and some of his indictments have been handed to courts in states where pardons cannot be used. Any report issued in the next few months will be piecemeal, not placed in one report- there are just too many actors in this cabal, and more is discovered every day. Obstruction of justice has been easily proven almost every day via video, documents, and tweets-trumps official form of communication. While states tear apart his business and tax crimes, the russia hookups will take a back seat. The Dossier is 80% proven by other documents and testimonies. We are all sick of his constant boasting about his win, which was not by much, electoral votes which were not by much and his hate for veterans and everyone not loyal to him. He is not a president, he is a disease. This election, people will show up to vote and take the garbage out

You are running scared. No longer Democrats; change you name to Socialist Party! You and all Dems should be ashamed for treating any President so bad. Obama was given better but was worthless

  3. This report will be sealed, even if there is evidence of wrongdoing by Clinton and Obama crime crib…..
    Why?
    Because it involves to many in and out of government and it would take years to prosecute them all, and the SOB’s ow this, so, they will walk and return another day to do it all over again!

  4. So many believed that a republican, any republican or democrat for that matter, would choose USA over the party … get real folks, it’s all about “what’s in it for me” now not just in the U$A but all over the world … welcome to deferment donnie & kentuck turtle-faces’ U$A, there is a new golden rule now: who has the gold – rules – yes it “bites” but must accept that it’s all part of humanitys’ self-extinction protocol since, after all, nobody promised this current dominant species that it’s supposed to be forever, right ?!?
