Sounds like special counsel Robert Mueller finally got his hands on the receipts.
It is being reported that the Justice Department gave Mueller a new load of internal communications, which apparently include Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s unused letter of resignation, and documents from when President Donald Trump attempted to fire Mueller.
Hopefully these documents will better illustrate how Trump has worked to block the FBI’s investigation into Russia’s tampering with the 2016 Presidential Election.
Last March, Sessions recused himself from the Russia inquiry, but he did write a memo recommending the firing of previous FBI Director James Comey. Trump eventually did dismiss Comey, who was heading up the Russian investigation, and later told NBC journalist Lester Holt that Comey’s dismissal was directly related to the investigation.
Due to Comey’s termination, and because Sessions had recused himself, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein then assigned Mueller to head the investigation. Trump was reportedly furious at Mueller’s appointment and demanded that Sessions resign.
While Sessions never left, he supposedly did write a letter of resignation that is now in the hands of Mueller’s investigative team. Shortly after all this drama, Trump reportedly was intent on firing Mueller as well, but was talked out of it by his staff.
The documents Mueller now has are from this tumultuous time period. One can only imagine what kind of dirt the documents, including internal White House emails, will reveal. No matter what ugly and tawdry facts the documents prove, it is doubtful that many Americans will be surprised at the results.
