Special Counsel Robert Mueller is reportedly close to wrapping up the obstruction of justice part of his inquiry, but contemplating putting it aside until other parts are completed.

Bloomberg’s Chris Strohm and Shannon Pettypiece reported Monday that the investigation into whether President Trump obstructed justice is “close to completion,” but that he may “set it aside” while finishing other parts of his probe, such as whether there was any collusion and who hacked the Democratic National Committee.

“Current and former U.S. officials” told Bloomberg said Mueller may calculate that if he tries to bring charges regarding obstruction, that witnesses may become less cooperative in other parts of the probe, or that the president may move to shut it down altogether.

The White House has said repeatedly there are no plans to shut down the Mueller probe. On Sunday, White House Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah reiterated that on ABC News’ “This Week,” although he added the qualifier “right now.”

“There’s no intention whatsoever to fire Robert Mueller, the special counsel, right now. We’ve been fully cooperative. We respect their process. We’re hoping it will come to a conclusion in the near future,” he told ABC News’ Jon Karl.

The unnamed current and former U.S. officials told Bloomberg that even if Mueller clears Trump of obstruction, he may opt to keep quiet, since the president’s allies could build pressure for the entire thing to be shut down.

Bloomberg reports the obstruction portion of the probe could be completed after several remaining interviews, including with President Trump and his son Donald Trump Jr.

According to Bloomberg, Mueller has already interviewed those who could weigh in on a possible obstruction of justice case, including former FBI Director James Comey, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and National Security Agency Director Michael Rogers.

Mueller is reportedly focused on three main episodes in regards to obstruction of justice: Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey in May 2017; the drafting of a statement about the purpose of a June 2016 meeting between Don Jr. and a Russian lawyer at Trump Tower; and Trump’s alleged consideration of firing Mueller last June.

CNN’s Anderson Cooper said during an interview with Univision anchor Jorge Ramos that he found the demographic decline of white people “exciting”.

“The idea that, you know, whites will not be the majority, I mean, that’s — it’s an exciting transformation of the country, it’s an exciting evolution and you know, progress of our country in many different ways,” said Cooper.

Ramos agreed that whites becoming a minority in America was inevitable and a positive development.

Anderson Cooper barely able to contain his excitement about Whites becoming a minority.

Not thrilled about being replaced in the country your ancestors founded: you're a "Supremacist"

Understand White People, you're already in a race war.

“There’s nothing really they can do against this incredible demographic revolution. And in 2044, everyone is going to be a minority,” he said.

The media has repeatedly asserted that even raising the “conspiracy theory” of “the great replacement” or the demographic decline of white people puts you on a par with mass shooters and terrorists.

However, it’s apparently completely fine to talk about the issue so long as you proclaim the demographic decline of whites to be a positive thing.
