Robert Mueller, the special counsel appointed to investigate Trump Campaign ties to Russia, financial improprieties, and obstruction of justice has informed Donald Trump’s lawyer that, though he remains under investigation, he is not currently a criminal target.
This seems to end speculation regarding the already mostly discredited claim of Trump/Russia collusion, but also throws into question many Trump opposition’s “hail Mary” claim to bring Trump down with obstruction of justice.
Many on the left are saying that this does not necessarily mean that Donald Trump won’t be found to be in violation of any laws considering Trump family and business financial records have not yet been reviewed, and this is technically true, however at this stage in the process, if the central piece of what started the investigation, to begin with, there is little evidence against Donald Trump in any criminal capacity.
