Some folks seemed to think that with the arrest of Roger Stone that the Mueller investigation might start winding down, however, that does not seem likely considering how much information was seized from Stone and the fact that Mueller will finally have access to Jared and Junior’s congressional testimony.
I think there is still much work to do.

The House Intelligence Committee’s Democratic leadership has scheduled a vote to send potentially explosive transcripts to special counsel Robert Mueller’s desk.
The committee will vote this Wednesday on turning over sensitive Russia-probe transcripts to Mueller, in a move that carries serious implications for anyone who can be shown to have lied.
The handover could put President Trump’s eldest son, Don Jr., in the hot seat. Democrats have signaled suspicions that Don Jr. may have been untruthful. Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) has said she thinks Don Jr. lied to the committee “on at least two occasions.”
Mueller has already slapped criminal charges on two people for making false statements to the committee in the course of its Russia investigation: President Trump’s longtime attorney and fixer, Michael Cohen, and former Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone.
If that was not enough to giver Trup bed sweats there are also subpoenas coming from the Southern District of New York.

Prosecutors are seeking documents and records related to the committee’s donors to the massive inauguration fund, according to sources familiar with the request. Prosecutors also are seeking information on attendees to the events surrounding the inauguration, including benefits to top-level donors such as photo opportunities with Trump, sources said.
Michael Cohen, Trump’s former personal attorney, has been interviewed extensively by prosecutors in the Southern District office. Longtime family accountant and Trump Organization Chief Financial Officer Allen Weisselberg has agreed to cooperate, though the extent of his help is unknown.
The Trump family business also has been in contact with prosecutors, but sources familiar with those discussions would not spell out the specific topics covered.
Those involved in discussions surrounding the inaugural fund, a nonprofit tasked with organizing festivities surrounding the president’s swearing-in, declined to detail specific questions from investigators. Trump’s inaugural fund raised $107 million — the most in modern history.
Of course, the New York southern district prosecutors do NOT answer to the Justice Department so there is no way for the Trump Administration to interfere in their investigation, and these subpoenas will likely get them access to Trump’s financial records and well as his tax returns.
That noose must be almost too tight for Trump to draw breath at this point.
