Special counsel Robert Mueller has been working on the Trump – Russia Investigation since May 17 of this year, so when will it be over and when will the Mueller report come out?
The latest bit of information the public received from Mueller’s investigation regarded Facebook giving Mueller copies of “troll” ads and account information linked to Russia. Congress was told by Facebook earlier this month that approximately 3,000 ads that ran between June 2015 and May 2017 were linked to a Russian “troll farm” and fake accounts.
It would seem that things are “getting close” when it comes to Mueller releasing the Trump – Russia Investigation report, but as history suggests, these things can take a while.
The Warren Commission, which was established by President Lyndon Johnson on Nov. 29, 1963 to investigate the assassination of President John Kennedy, did not wrap up until Sept. 24, 1964. That’s nine months and 26 days.
The 9/11 Commission Report, which investigated the 9/11 terror attacks, was established on Nov. 27, 2002 and the final report was not issued until July 22, 2004. That’s one year, seven months and 25 days.
The Watergate break-in occurred on June 17, 1972. The major points of the FBI’s investigation were not released to the public until the summer of 1973. That’s one year and one month. In addition, Nixon did not resign until Aug. 9, 1974.
Mueller himself investigated the NFL’s Ray Rice in 2014. Mueller’s investigation into the Rice matter took four months, from September 2014 to January 2015.
It has been over four months now since Mueller began the Trump – Russia investigation. Based on the above and the magnitude of the investigation, it could take a whole lot longer.
