Robert Mueller is closing in on Trump. Congress must protect police investigations | Max Bergmann and Max Boot

The closer Mueller gets to Trump, the likelier it is that Trump will act to try to end his investigation. Thats why he must be protected now

Mueller is coming.

The investigation into Trump campaign coordination with Russia appears to be closing in on the president. The three indictments earlier this month of Trump campaign chairman, Paul Manafort; his deputy, Rick Gates; and foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos show that Robert Mueller is inside Trump’s campaign. The indictment and plea agreement of former national security adviser Michael Flynn now sets the investigation into the White House.

In most circumstances, apprehending the president’s campaign chairman and his national security consultant, one of the most important positions in the entire government, would be seen as the culmination of a successful investigation. But what’s clear is that neither Flynn , nor Manafort, is the target of Mueller’s work.

As anyone who watches Law and Order knows, attorneys offer a plea deal in order to get information and build a lawsuit against someone higher up in the food chain. If Flynn does strike a plea agreement, there is logically only one person that Mueller would be interested in striking a deal over: the president.
