If Robert Mueller is on a “witch hunt” former Obama Era Acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal says he is doing a bang-up job….
“If this is a witch hunt, Mueller’s found a coven at this point,” the Obama-era official told NBC’s Chuck Todd on Sunday’s “Meet the Press,” pointing to the 37 indictments in Mueller’s probe of Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Several of those charged have been part of the president’s inner circle, including former fixer Michael Cohen, former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, former campaign adviser George Papadopoulos and most recently political operative Roger Stone.
It remains to been seen whether Mueller’s highly anticipated report will be made public even after it is wrapped up, but if there is ever to be a charge of conspiracy in the 2016 election, Katyal said it could still be on its way.
However, he argued that “we’re starting to already see the outlines of a Mueller report that does look like he is alleging some sort of conspiracy.”
