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.

ALERT ALERT

Democrat Disaster! 53% Of Black Voters, 60% Of Other Minorities Say Liberal Media Trying To Help Democrats Impeach Trump

Thanks to President Donald Trump ALL Americans now know the mainstream fake-news media is an extension of the Democrat Party.

In a recent poll a majority of black voters and minority voters say the media is trying to help Democrats impeach President Trump.

And half of FOX News too, by the way.

CNS News reported:

Both black voters and other minority voters are more convinced than white voters that most reporters are trying to help impeach President Donald Trump, rather than report the news fairly – with a majority of each of the three groups holding that view – a new Rasmussen Reports survey reveals.

In the national voter survey, conducted November 12-13, 53% of all voters said most reporters are trying to help impeach Trump:

“When they write or talk about the impeachment effort, are most reporters trying to help impeach President Trump or block his impeachment? Or are most reporters simply interested in reporting the news in an unbiased manner?”:

“Help impeach President Trump”: 53%
“Block his impeachment”: 8%
Report “news in an unbiased an unbiased manner”: 32%

But, 53% of black voters and 60% of other minorities, compared to 51% of whites, said reporters are trying to get Trump rather than report the news fairly.
