At long last, the Mueller investigation may finally be coming to an end. Multiple outlets are now saying the probe could end as soon as next week.
FOX News reports:
Mueller probe ‘near the end game’ amid shakeup at DOJ, sources say
Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe is wrapping up soon, and a source familiar with the investigation tells Fox News it is “near the end game” — although there has been no formal notification to President Trump’s legal team that Mueller’s work is completed.
Exiting Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who oversaw the Mueller probe for 18 months until the recent confirmation of AG William Barr, had said privately he intended to remain in his role until the Mueller report was delivered to Congress. On Tuesday, the White House announced that Deputy Secretary of Transportation Jeff Rosen would replace Rosenstein.
Sources close to the investigative process have told Fox News that the high-level shakeup at Justice — with Barr assembling his new team, and Rosenstein planning to leave by mid-March — is a sign that the stars are aligning for the probe’s conclusion.
The DOJ has not confirmed it is planning an announcement on the inquiry, and neither Mueller’s team nor the DOJ responded to Fox News’ request for comment.

Mueller report to be finalized as early as next week: Report
Attorney General Bill Barr could announce as soon as early next week that special counsel Robert Mueller has completed his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, according to a new report.
Barr plans to submit to Congress a summary of Mueller’s confidential report on the two-year investigation, CNN reported Wednesday.
Mueller is required to submit a confidential report to the attorney general after he wraps up his investigation. In the report, Mueller must explain why he decided to bring charges against or not prosecute any matters under investigation.
Rules do not require the report to be shared with Congress or be made public, but Barr is required to inform Congress if the Justice Department prevented Mueller’s team from taking any action.
What are Democrats going to do when this all finally ends? What are they going to talk about all day, and more importantly, will they finally accept the fact that Trump won the 2016 election fair and square?
