Mueller’s ‘Obstruction Investigation’ Into Trump — Less Than Meets The Eye

Russia Probe: The latest “bombshell” report — at least in the minds of journalists — is that special counsel Robert Mueller is allegedly investigating whether President Trump obstructed justice. The significance of this is open to debate.

Based on unnamed sources (naturally), the Washington Post reported late Wednesday — in a story ominously headlined “Special counsel is investigating Trump for possible obstruction of justice ” — that Mueller is “interviewing senior intelligence officials as part of a widening probe,” and that this “marks a major turning point” in the investigation.

But even the Trump-hating New York Times was more careful than the hyperventilating Post in how it framed the story, saying the interviews were only “hinting” at such an inquiry.
