Robert Mueller allegedly wants to throw in the towel.
“I think Robert Mueller wants to be able to conclude his work and turn over the investigative threats to the Southern District of New York, the Eastern District of Virginia, and other jurisdictions as appropriate,” former CIA Director John Brennan said on MSNBC earlier this week.
Mueller typically files his indictments on Fridays. Brennan said he thinks if indictments do come out this Friday, it will signal the end of Mueller’s investigation.
Everything Brennan said is pure speculation at this point. But his reasoning makes reference to history.
Since next Friday is the Ides of March, he believes Mueller would not want to be known as the special counsel who handed down indictments that took down a president on March 15.
Forget making sure the investigation is conducted properly — just worry about the optics of being associated with the Ides of March, the date when Julius Caesar was reportedly assassinated.
Just Another Trump Hater
Still, Brennan actually appears to have no solid evidence to support his claims. He does, however, have a severe disdain for Donald Trump.
But if the indictments from Mueller do actually come out on Friday and the investigation is concluded, it would be nothing more than Brennan getting lucky by blindly throwing a dart and hoping for the best.
While Brennan seems to think this will be the end of Mueller’s investigation, several other pundits have chimed in saying this could drag out much longer.
In fact, it looks like Mueller is starting to dig into Donald Trump’s personal finances.
We have also seen movement from Congress in this area.
If that is the case, while some indictments may come out this week or next, it is unlikely to be the end of this years-too-long investigation.
