Matt Whitaker Can't Prevent Mueller from Unsealing Any Sealed Indictments (Marcy Wheeler)

https://www.emptywheel.net/2018/11/07/matt-whitaker-cant-prevent-mueller-from-unsealing-any-sealed-indictments/

. . . All that said, Mueller was surely expecting just such an eventuality. And the fact that they got Roger Stone attorney Tyler Nixon to testify Friday suggests they were prepping for it, getting the last bit of evidence against Stone in place.

The only question is whether they got the grand jury to approve whatever indictments they were working on. Iíd be surprised if Mueller didnít (unless Rod Rosenstein prevented him from doing so).

If thatís the case, then Whitaker is not going to help Trump get out of his legal troubles. Thatís because Chief Judge Beryl Howell, not Whitaker, will make the decision about unsealing anything sealed in this grand jury investigation.

So if Mueller prepared for this very predictable eventuality, then Trump may have just fired a key player in his racist agenda for naught.

1. given that it's Mueller, I'm sure there is a "dead man switch"

triggered when tRump / DoJ tries to pull the plug

even without that, I'm not sorry Jefferson Beaureagard Fuckface is out.
