Trump-Russia investiigation: Coverup is Now Part of it

Matthew Schofield and Lesley Clark – McClatchy Washington Bureau:

Investigators into Russian meddling in the U.S. presidential elections are now authorized to probe whether White House officials have engaged in a cover-up, according to members of Congress who were briefed Friday by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

A Justice Department official, who asked not to be identified because of the sensitivity of the topic, confirmed that Rosenstein told members of the House of Representatives that the special counsel in charge of the probe, former FBI Director Robert Mueller, “has been given the authority to investigate the possibility of a cover-up.”

Cliché: it’s not the crime, it’s the cover-up.

A cover-up. Does anyone working in the office of the president read? Is there no-one there with a memory longer than a few years? Or are these people so focused on their own agenda they fail to recognize that we can all see them?

There is no hiding in plain sight, Jared. You are accountable to us, Donald.
