Mike Allen on Mueller Probe: Roger Stone and Wikileaks ‘Might Happen Today’

‘Those were the two topics that were mentioned to me by lawyers close to this investigation when they talked about what might happen today’

EXCERPT:

ALLEN: "I can tell you that Robert Mueller, based on people who know him well and as your viewers know, there aren’t leaks out of Mueller. They come from elsewhere. So this is all reading of the tea leaves, but people who have worked with Mueller tell me that he doesn’t need an opening or a reason. What he is doing won’t be based on any taunts from the other side or anything else from the other side. If there's one word that comes up again and again when you talk to people who have worked with Mueller and who have interacted with his team on this investigation, they say it is methodical. That's why we have a piece up on 'Axios' right now, 'Inside Mueller’s Secret Files,' a look at everything that Mueller has collected that we haven’t yet seen. And this includes more than a million pages of e-mails and other documents out of the White House and the Trump campaign memos, I’m told, out of the White House of conversations with the President, and so there’s a lot more to come, including — and Jonathan was right in his question that there is speculation both about Roger Stone and Wikileaks. Those were the two topics that were mentioned to me by lawyers close to this investigation when they talked about what might happen today."
