Special Counsel Robert Mueller will not meet President Trump’s deadline to end the Russia investigation, reports say.
Trump wanted it done by September 1st, but Mueller may not be done until after the midterms.
According to Bloomberg:
“Special Counsel Robert Mueller doesn’t have to shut down his Russia investigation in the weeks before November’s congressional elections despite claims by President Donald Trump’s lawyers that he faces a Sept. 1 deadline, according to current and former U.S. officials.
Mueller can continue his closed-door inquiries, and even issue new indictments up to and after the Nov. 6 voting, without violating a Justice Department policy against actions intended “for the purpose of affecting any election,” they said, asking not to be identified discussing investigative matters.”
