DOJ official leading Trump-Russia probe to step down

Source: Politico

The Justice Department official who is leading the governmentís investigation into potential collusion between President Donald Trumpís campaign and the Russian government will step down next month.

Mary McCord, who has served as acting assistant attorney general for national security since October, informed DOJ employees this week that she will be leaving in mid-May, a spokesman confirmed to POLITICO.

DOJ's National Security Division is leading the agencyís inquiry into possible links between Trump campaign aides and Moscow, as well as the Kremlinís alleged digital meddling campaign during the 2016 presidential race.

McCord replaced John Carlin, an Obama administration appointee who retired on Oct. 15. It is not yet known who will succeed her. There are four deputy assistant attorneys general, each of whom oversees a different part of the NSDís portfolio.

6. There was a bit of good news on Chris Hayes' show.

Someone called the president stupid.

It followed someone calling him ignorant and incompetent.

Made my day.

8. Does this mean we get the indictments before mid-May?

Perhaps her work is almost done.

9. Maddow reporting. Crawler-- New Shakeup at DOJ. Matther Miller, a guest. Saying hugely

troubling if Sessions appoints a political person vs a career worker.

Is there anyone who believes Trumpers wouldn't do that?

14. Getting closer and closer....

.....to outright dictatorship. Next up, a ban on demonstrating and free speech, unless you're a fox or a brietbart. The wingnuts know this is their last chance and we'll ALL be living under a corporate Christian boot heel endorsed by the scotus pretty soon. Its time to start getting SERIOUSLY pissed people! I'm starting to lose all my remaining faith in our "checks and balances".

15. Trumps daughter will replace her

 

Trump will probably announce his daughter will be the one investigating his ties to Russian secret police. That way everyone can believe it was an honest and impartial investigation without bias. Kind of like Hitler being investigated by the Gestapo.

17. Depends on if she is replaced by a competent career employee or Trump political hack

If an unbiased career official steps in, FBI's investigations should go forward but if Sessions puts in a political obstructionist, could put a wrench in the works
