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.

TOTAL BULLSHIT!: FBI Arrests Leader Of Militia Group Stopping Illegal Aliens In New Mexico

The FBI on Saturday arrested Larry Hopkins, the leader of the militia group that is stopping ‘asylum seekers’ after they illegally cross over the US border into New Mexico.

Hopkins was arrested shortly after the anti-American ACLU accused the militia group of kidnapping and illegally detaining the aliens.

Reuters reported:

Hopkins, 69, also known as Johnny Horton, was arrested in Sunland Park, New Mexico, on a federal complaint charging him with being a felon in possession of firearms and ammunition, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said in a statement.

“We’re not worried about it, he’s going to be cleared,” said Jim Benvie, a spokesman for the United Constitutional Patriots (UCP), blaming his arrest on political pressure from Lujan Grisham.

Hopkins is the “national commander” of the UCP, which has had around half a dozen members camped out on a rotating basis near Sunland Park since late February.

More than 300 ‘asylum seekers’ trying to illegally cross the US border this weekend surrendered to an armed militia of New Mexico citizens comprised of ex-cops and veterans.

This is what happens when the US government doesn’t even uphold its most basic commitment to the American people, to secure the borders from invaders.

The militia then handed over the detained aliens to US border patrol.

The militia immediately came under attack — PayPal and GoFundMe banned the group of armed citizens from being able to raise money.

In a statement to BuzzFeed, PayPal claimed that the group violated their “Acceptable Use Policy.”

“The account associated with United Constitutional Patriots has been closed due to a violation of our Acceptable Use Policy,” the spokesperson told BuzzFeed News. “We do not allow PayPal services to be used to promote hate, violence, or other forms of intolerance that is discriminatory.”

Mark Cheney, who identified himself to BuzzFeed as the “commander” of the militia, said that the bans have “killed” their efforts.

“They killed us,” Cheney said. “I have to find some other way for people to donate.”

There is a crisis at the US-Mexico border and the Democrats and activist judges are fighting President Trump at every turn.

In March alone, over 100,000 illegal aliens were detained by US border patrol.

According to reports, over 1.5 million illegal aliens will enter the United States in 2019 if the surge continues at the current rate.

Instead of arresting the illegal alien invaders, the FBI arrests an American man who is defending the borders. Let that sink in.
