and criminal complaints. It has already been in slow-motion production for 2 years now.
That way it cannot be quashed.
The only "report" will be on whom he chooses *not* to indict, which may be trump in the form of unincicted co-conspirator.

and it calmed me down a bit. Nance said that not only does Mueller have everything backed up and saved a million ways but he is smart and has plans for this possibility as future obstructions are likely to occur. If the govt won't release it Nance said you can count on copies of everything to be dropped at the front door of the NY Times and Wash Post.

From the Washington Post:

If Whitaker takes over direct supervision of the Russia investigation from Rosenstein, he would assume budget authority for Mueller’s work, giving him the ability to sharply reduce Mueller’s staff and resources. His approval would also be required before Mueller could take major investigative steps, including asking a grand jury for additional indictments.

Any report that Mueller issues describing his overall findings would be submitted to Whitaker, who could decide it contained privileged material that should not be made public.

”It will all come out in the wash.”

The only person who believes that the Mueller locomotive can be stopped is The Dotard himself.

The PTB in the GOP have known from day one that the most they could hope for is to delay the inevitable, and push through as much of their agenda as they can before the shit hits the fan.

If Whittaker (or anyone else) tries to quash Mueller’s findings, the Dems in the House can and will call Mueller to testify as to what he’s learned in open hearings.

If Spanky colluded with the Russians and/or has committed other crimes, there’s no way that information is not going to be leaked to the public, one way or another.

Keep in mind that Mueller and his team are not partisan hacks – they are truly devoted to service to their country, and have spent their careers protecting the nation from harm, domestic and foreign. You can be damned sure that they will do whatever necessary to ensure that a corrupt traitor is exposed.
