The Hill's Morning Report - House Dems prepare to swamp Trump with investigations

As one investigation around President Trump appears to be winding down, others are ramping up, all but ensuring that a cloud of investigations will hang over the administration for the entirety of Trump’s first term in office.

CNN reports that criminal prosecutor Scott Meisler is departing special counsel Robert Mueller’s team, the latest sign that “the special counsel is winding down the investigation,” although speculation is swirling around several “uncharged individuals” referenced in court filings (CNN).

Over the past two weeks, acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker and Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), who was closely tied into the investigations as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee in the last Congress, have indicated that a final report from Mueller could be coming soon.

Enter Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the new chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, who has been staffing up with lawyers and investigators.

With Democrats in control of the House and the government shutdown in the rearview mirror, at least for now, Schiff laid out a roadmap on Wednesday for how he intends to reopen the Russian interference probe that Republicans shuttered when Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) was chairman of the Intelligence Committee.
