Special Counsel Robert Mueller is set to issue findings of some of the core aspects of his investigation into the alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia shortly after the November midterm elections, Bloomberg reported.
The Mueller team is currently facing increased scrutiny from both sides, with calls to either shut down the investigation or produce more indictments.
Rosenstein reportedly indicated he wants to end the probe as soon as possible, while president Trump is a frequent critic of the investigation, calling it a “witch hunt.”
American public might never see final Mueller report on Russian election interference
Under the current special counsel regulation, Mueller is required to provide the attorney general with a “confidential report explaining the prosecution or declination decisions reached by the Special Counsel,” but it will be up to the attorney general — or, at the moment, his deputy — whether to release that report to the public.
Any attempt to withhold Mueller’s report from public view would surely spark a fierce partisan battle, particularly if Democrats take control of the House in the midterms, putting themselves in position to subpoena documents from the Justice Department pertaining to Mueller’s investigation even if its findings aren’t publicly released.

We’re hunting you
My comrades will kill you and the Constitution.
First we will rape you for days
You will scream and know that agonizing horror
No equal rights for republicans
Socialism is here
Open season for Republican death in Vermont.”
