President Trump urged Attorney General Jeff Sessions to shut down the year-long Russia investigation Wednesday morning; calling-on the nation’s top law enforcement official to “stop this rigged witch hunt now.”
The Commander-in-Chief unloaded on the special counsel’s never-ending probe on social media, saying Robert Mueller “is totally conflicted” and his investigation was turning into a “disgrace to USA.”
“This is a terrible situation and Attorney General Jeff Sessions should stop this Rigged Witch Hunt right now, before it continues to stain our country any further. Bob Mueller is totally conflicted, and his 17 Angry Democrats that are doing his dirty work are a disgrace to USA!” tweeted Trump.

MUELLER MADNESS: Special Counsel SURRENDERS All ‘EVIDENCE’ on Mike Flynn
A new bombshell report from Sara Carter reveals the office of the special counsel is prepared to comply with a federal order that it “hand over” all “evidence” pertaining to former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, according to multiple sources familiar with the case.
“The Office of Special Counsel complied with a federal judge’s order and as a result turned over all evidence related to former National Security Advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn’s case, according to two sources who spoke to this reporter,” writes Carter.
“In December, Judge Emmet G. Sullivan ordered Special Counsel Robert Mueller to provide Flynn’s attorneys with any and all information that may have been withheld from the case,” she adds.
The news comes as Mueller’s ongoing investigation is reportedly turning towards the President’s finances; focusing on the Trump Organization’s international business dealings and assets.

MUELLER MADNESS: Sources Say Russia-Trump Probe May Last ‘Another Year’
Inside sources close to special counsel Robert Mueller’s months-long investigation into Russian “collusion” in the 2016 presidential election say the probe may last “another year,” taking the never-ending witch hunt well beyond the 2018 mid-terms.
According to the Washington Post, people with close “knowledge” of Mueller’s investigation are openly defying President Trump’s hopes that the probe would be “winding down” after former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to “misleading” the FBI.
“People with knowledge of the investigation said it could last at least another year — pointing to ongoing cooperation from witnesses such as former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos and former national security adviser Michael Flynn, as well as a possible trial of two former Trump campaign officials,” writes the Post.
“The special counsel’s office has continued to request new documents related to the campaign, and members of Mueller’s team have told others they expect to be working through much of 2018, at a minimum,” the author adds.
Mueller’s probe is under increasing scrutiny from GOP lawmakers following recent revelations of rampant anti-Trump bias throughout the special counsel’s office. Earlier this month, a senior FBI agent’s text messages were publicly released, where he said the bureau needed an “insurance policy” against the Trump presidency.
