While various dimensions of the Justice Department’s Russia investigation prevails enveloped in confidentiality, one thing is absolutely clear; there is more to special counsel Robert Mueller.
Mueller has speedily moved ahead in his eminent investigation since heading the counsel seven months ago. He levied allegation against four people with constraints to the Trump campaign or administration so far, involving President’s erstwhile campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
The result of Mueller’s relationship with Flynn, who has made an appeal of being culpable of deception to FBI and is, collaborating with investigators, could be the explanation to what occurs further ahead. Randall Eliason, a former federal prosecutor who teaches white collar criminal law at George Washington University Law School said that there are two paths this could culminate in but both are dependent on why Flynn spoke a lie. The outcomes will depend on which path he has taken.
If Flynn fabricated about his Russia connection as they would have an adverse effect on his image politically then his associates or the President himself could get captured in a deception even if what they are trying to conceal isn’t criminal.
If the facts present the truth then it could signify an obstacle in justice case. It has been some months now that news outlets have described that Muller is interested in if Trump hindered justice which would comply to the undertaking to leverage or destabilize an ongoing probe.
