FBI opened obstruction case against Trump before Mueller was appointed, court files show

A newly unsealed court document reveals the FBI opened an obstruction of justice case against President Trump before Special Counsel Robert Mueller was appointed to investigate Russia's interference in the 2016 election.

Trump claimed earlier this year that he was assured by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein he was not a target or subject of Mueller's probe.

But the final Mueller report showed his investigators looked closely at the question of whether Trump obstructed justice, while not reaching a conclusion. And according to the court document released this week, that avenue of investigation was being pursued before Mueller even took over. Michael Dreeben, an attorney for the special counsel's office, said in a January 2018 hearing in federal court that in 2017, "Before the appointment of the Special Counsel on May 17th, the FBI had opened up an investigation into obstruction of justice."

The 2018 hearing concerned an unsuccessful lawsuit from CNN seeking copies of former FBI Director James Comey's memos about his interactions with Trump. CNN published a transcript of that hearing Tuesday after the Justice Department, under a court order, was forced to provide the transcript to the cable network.

CNN previously cited unnamed sources in saying then-acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe opened the obstruction investigation after Comey was fired and before Mueller was appointed. McCabe later said in an interview he launched the probe at that point. The court filing provides additional confirmation of that timeline.

During the court hearing, meanwhile, the special counsel's office argued against releasing the Comey memos, saying they would interfere with the investigation.

Mueller was appointed by Rosenstein in May 2017 to investigate any links or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the Trump campaign, as well any other matters that arose from the investigation.

Maybe it can happen that the Democrats and their allies, the Republicans, won't get away with their deep state stuff this time, finally.

Well, just my take...

First of Trump has never been an establishment politician in any way shape or form. That's strike one, strike two is that he is very goal/mission orientated. Not someone interested in simply making excuses and blaming others like every other cretin in Washington, that's a strike three. Strike four of coarse is the fact that know he is proving sh$t can get done. ALL of the elites know he is in effect a threat to the status quo that's existed for many many years. Nothing to do with his base per sei, but the fact that he is approaching big gov with the same mentality, efficiency and make it work mentality of a successful businessman. That makes him the biggest threat to them. And, this of coarse means he must go. The honest rank and file as well as leadership, they ain't worried. But, many of those at the top are sh$$$ng bricks knowing the new Sheriff is cleaning things up and the old business as usual is under fire. This is not Democrat vs Republican, it's literally making Gov work for the people, follow the law, and do what's in the best interests of the American people, not themselves.
