End of Mueller shifts focus to existing probes

Special counsel Robert Mueller is finished investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, shifting the focus to cases spawned by his 22-month probe.

Federal prosecutors in Manhattan are investigating President Trumpís former personal attorney Michael Cohenís campaign finance violations thanks to one of more than a dozen referrals Mueller made to other districts in the course of his investigation.

Prosecutors in Washington are eyeing a November trial for Roger Stone, a case Mueller passed off when he shuttered his probe after charging the former Trump ally with lying to Congress about his interactions with WikiLeaks. Prosecutors are also pursuing an active case against the people behind the Russian troll farm accused of meddling in the election. Mueller charged them more than a year ago.

Michael Flynn, Trumpís former national security adviser, is expected to soon take the witness stand against his onetime business partner for allegedly illegally lobbying on behalf of the Turkish government.

And House Democrats appear intent on using Muellerís report to pursue their own case on obstruction of justice against the president.

1. Unfortunately, Trump isn't named in any of them, due to OLC policy.

The same policy that Mueller said precluded him from charging a sitting President.
