    Rosenstein: Mueller can investigate any crimes he uncovers in Russian probe.

    Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein said Sunday that the expanding investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election is continuing apace, even as President Trump dismissed the probe as “a total fabrication.”

    Rosenstein said special counsel Robert S. Mueller III can investigate any crimes that he might discover within the scope of his probe, but the deputy attorney general would not discuss which individuals are the subject of their inquiry. The interview comes days after Trump said he believes it would be inappropriate for Mueller to dig into Trump family finances.
    “The special counsel is subject to the rules and regulations of the Department of Justice, and we don’t engage in fishing expeditions,” Rosenstein said when asked about the probe in an interview on “Fox News Sunday.”

    Wallace actually did a pretty good job with this interview. Great article too. The thing about Trump and his squad of flying monkey's is, they just aren't very smart. The resident narrative is that there's been an investigation of Trump going on for over a year and yet they haven't found anything. Well, the only problem with the narrative is this. If it had been proven that Trump did nothing wrong, then special counsel would never have been appointed. That's pretty much what Rosenstein is saying, right? Like I say, not very smart this bunch. If they were smart they'd encourage Mueller to follow the evidence where ever it might lead, leave it at that, repeat that when ever asked, over and over, as many times as they are asked. Otherwise....just STFU about it.

    Trump believes that he can always win in the court of public opinion, but that only counts in politics. He's making a mistake in thinking that he can approach a criminal investigation as though it were just another political campaign.

    he knows that his presidential fate lies with the Republican congress. If he can convince enough of the population that he's being persecuted, they're unlikely to impeach him. At least, by his way of thinking. Truth is if Mueller finds he colluded with Russia, or committed any other impeachable offense, there would hell to pay if congress ignored that. It's also likely that's why Pence is raising campaign expenses to run in 2020.

    I have no idea what Mueller has discovered thus far, but if the Trump campaign did collude with the Russians then Pence will surely be found complicit in the conspiracy. If Trump goes down, Pence will go down with him.

    I'm not sure American jurisprudence permits warrantless, chargeless fishing expeditions.

    The OP is full of shit.

    Rosentstein said he could investigate anything found under the parameters set out when he hired Mueller.

    Anything found outside those parameters requires Mueller to get permission from the acting AG (Rosenstein right now) before proceeding.

    More lies from our alt-left members.

    I'm pretty sure Special Prosecutor Mueller will cross every t and dot every i. No Covfefe going on here.

    Unlike Trump, Mueller is a real pro.

    Here's what those parameters are:

    any links between Russia's government and anyone associated with, not merely part of, the Trump campaign

    any matter that arises in the course of that investigation

    any other matters within the scope of 28 C.F.R. Section 600 Part 4, which covers: Any instance of perjury, obstruction of justice, destruction of evidence or witness tampering,

    in this case on the part of anyone who is associated with the Russian government, the Trump campaign, or a matter directly tied to either of those two entities.

    The mandate is massive, covers countless potential subjects, and was reported as such when Mueller was first appointed.

    Furthermore, under the aforementioned statute, Rosenstein (since Sessions is recused) can privately authorize Mueller to pursue any issue which arises and may concern other parties/issues.

    "Mueller can't investigate that" is really the dumbest thing Trump supporters can say about this issue. Yes, he can.

    There is no restriction, whatsoever, on Mueller doing whatever he wants to do, and if he gets challenged just to ask Rosenstein if it's OK to proceed. Rosenstein is going to say Yes. Rosenstein picked Mueller for a reason, and he'll stand by his man, until they're both fired. And if Trump does that...

    If you take some time to think about it, you come to understand that Trump firing Comey was a mistake, from the perspective of his own self defense ... but Oh, Jeez, he made such a colossal error attempting to pin that decision on Rosenstein. That is going to be one for the ages.

    isn't a special prosecutor supposed to have a crime to look into when appointed?
