White House Claims Russia Probe Nearly Over [VIDEO]

Talking Points Memo reports:

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Thursday that she believed special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of Russian meddling in the 2016 election and other matters was “getting closer to conclusion.”

She did not cite any new evidence to back up the claim, instead referring to vague “reporting” on “more details about why the President has been right all along.”

“I certainly think he has confidence that they are going to close this up soon,” Sanders told Fox News’ Bill Hemmer. Hemmer asked what made her think Mueller’s probe would conclude. “I think we are seeing more and more evidence that shows, look, they’ve been working on this and investigating this for well into a year through various committees,” Sanders said.

  • Lazycrockett

    Mueller hasn’t even started interviewing the campaign staff. Seriously STFU.

    • stevenj

      That’s because to them money laundering means accidentally leaving your wallet in your pants while doing the wash.

  • bkmn

    Is this a sign Trump is going to try to shut Mueller down?

    • Todd20036

      He cannot.

      • Gene Perry

        Sure he can … all Trump has to do is tell Sessions to fire him. Done.

        • Uncle Mark

          Sessions is too much of a chicken-shit to do it. I’m sure the recent hearings he’s endured has made him nervous about doing anything else that will drag him deeper into trouble. I suspect at some point, he may believe he can negotiate his ass out of this mess, but won’t be able to, if he removes Mueller, too. Plus, such a move would immediately put him under the microscope for months…the last thing that little cockroach wants.

        • JCF

          Sessions has recused himself.

      • bkmn

        Won’t stop him from trying. Nobody tells him he can’t do something.

  • ben-andy

    Wishful thinking much, Sarah?

    • Bryan

      Propaganda much?

  • Gustav2
  • Tawreos

    Next they will start saying that it is dragging on unnecessarily in an effort to find anything, and use that as an excuse to try to shut it down. I guess they think the subject of the investigation can decide when the investigation ends.

    • Joe in PA

      I know! And of course it didn’t make sense…mid sentence.

      Spectacular Speculation

      “Am I shocked, surprised, or [finding] it sleazy that the Democrats would have wanted to get potential incriminating information about financials or sex against Donald Trump? No,” Kayyem said. “Did the same thing happen on the other side? Yes.”

      Kayyem speculated that the pace of stories critical of Hillary Clinton represents “a recognition by the White House team” that Mueller is getting close to something substantive as a result of his investigation.

  • sfjohn

    wonder how much gin she uses to gargle with in the morning

    • Uncle Mark

      Suffice it to say, she has to gargle A LOT of gin before she can even look in the mirror

    • Tatonka

      There’s not enough gin in the world, unless one’s soul is already broken beyond repair.

  • Uncle Mark

    The only part of that I believe is the part that suggests that the investigation is getting closer to the conclusion. Just watch the Fucking Moron unravel more & more each day to confirm that fact.

    Note that Sarah Moo-Moo Huckabee didn’t give us a day or even an estimate as to when the investigation is to conclude…in addition to her failure to provide evidence as to how this investigation is “supporting the President.” Something tells me this a sad attempt to calm President Man-Baby & his deplorables…especially with all this damning evidence and Russia-talk hitting the fan.

      • Tatonka

        I wonder if she suffers from Bell’s palsy or something similar. I really don’t feel good about picking on her looks, which are irrelevant to all of the ugliness she carries on the inside. Even still, that wandering eye …

        • PickyPoussin

          Watch her mouth (if you can). Her lower jaw moves very oddly. Could just be getting set to unhinge, I suppose.

        • Boreal

          She suffers from Snicker’s seizures and French Fry Fasciolopsis.

        • Uncle Mark

    Oh, yeah. The oh so shocking Uranium/HRC-paid dossier allegations mean Trump is innocent. I mean, the GOP-lead congress is opening investigations, so they have to be true.

    We’re not all functionally retarded like your boss and base, Sarah.

  • Tawreos

    The people that want this investigation to end brought us a land deal investigation that ended with a blowjob and countless investigations into emails and Benghazi without finding a thing. Maybe they are not the best to decide when and where this ends.

    There is only one probe tRump is concerned about.

    But the only way he can see it is in a magnifying mirror.

  • tbj5

    They’re lying and floundering and trying to make this all into a nothing burger that’s somehow proof of Hillary being Satan.

    Mueller’s ship is leak proof, unless they want leaks out.

    The investigation is closing in, and there are likely many indictments already secretly issued.

    But it’ll end when they decide they’ve found most of the weeds’ roots and are ready to cut and yank them out.

    The only reason it’s still ongoing is likely due to the sheer magnitude of this all, including the number of greedy corrupt Assholes who decided to join Team Collusion for personal gain.

  • Friday

    Unless they found a way to kill the investigation, it’s not very likely over, and we already know the evidence ain’t in the Republicans’ favor. This is just an attempt to gaslight and confuse.

    So 1 investigation? Didn’t Gowdy do 13 in the House alone on Benghazi before he accidentally told the truth in public that it was a merit less witch hunt?

    • Steverino

      I don’t know about Gowdy, but it was Kevin McCarthy who blurted out as much to a FOX News reporter (who quickly tried to change the subject), saying that the purpose of the investigations was to ruin Hillary Clinton’s presidential aspirations.

      McCarthy apparently was suffering from an overdose of truth serum, likely self-administered in the form of a three-martini lunch.

    National security expert Juliette Kayyem is predicting news from Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation will be announced within the next month.

    “I think it is safe to say that before Thanksgiving … something’s going to drop with Mueller,” she said on Boston Public Radio today. “The pace is too much right now. Every 12 hours we’re now dealing with a piece of this story at a pace we haven’t seen.”

    One reason why it is taking so long is because on several occasions Trump has ordered the dismissal of investigators. And his coconspirators in Congress have tried to amend the investigation’s mandate so it’d become yet another Hillary bash.

  • Gianni

    Gee, she is brilliant – “she believed special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of Russian meddling
    in the 2016 election and other matters was “getting closer to
    conclusion.” It’s sort of automatic that when something, such as an investigation, is begun, it usually follows that, as it progresses, it moves toward a conclusion. So much talent to state the obvious.
