How Trump Could Bury Mueller’s Findings

Greg Sargent: “There’s already been lots of discussion of the ways in which a replacement for Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein could limit Mueller’s probe, by, say, declaring certain areas off limits for the investigation. That’s a serious threat.”

“But there’s another important angle here: If Trump does remove Rosenstein, his replacement would also have a great deal of discretion over whether — and how much of — Mueller’s determinations ever see the light of day… A replacement for Rosenstein could not only decline to release something publicly, but could also sharply limit how much information gets sent to Congress.”
