Washington Post says Mueller report coming in days

Justice Department officials are preparing for the end of special counsel Robert S. Mueller IIIís nearly two-year investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and believe a confidential report could be issued in coming days, according to people familiar with the discussions.

The special counselís investigation has consumed Washington since it began in May 2017, and it increasingly appears to be nearing its end, which would send fresh shock waves through the political system. Mueller could deliver his report to Attorney General William P. Barr next week, according to a person familiar with the matter who, like others, spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive deliberations.

Regulations call for Mueller to submit to the attorney general a confidential explanation as to why he decided to charge certain individuals, as well as who else he investigated and why he decided not to charge those people. The regulations then call for the attorney general to report to Congress about the investigation.

An adviser to President Trump said there is palpable concern among the presidentís inner circle that the report might contain information about Trump and his team that is politically damaging, but not criminal conduct.

1. Is that separate from the CNN report or are they quoting CNN?

6. Same wording, though. Operative word: "Could"

I think it's a rehash of CNN's report.

9. Yeah, very little sourcing. And the use of "could". I think they just jumped on the bandwagon.

5. It defies logic that they wouldn't be indicted. There just HAS to be something more to this.

4. It's my understanding that the ag said the report is coming

He didnt say that muller is finished with it . The ag was brought in to end it and looks like that is what he is going to do

7. "according to a person familiar with the matter"

I'll believe it when Mueller hands it in.

17. I predict that a copy of the report will be leaked to the public.

The very same person(s) who've prevented leaks during the investigation will let the cat out of the bag.
Merely my prediction.
