2. Hmm. So it was Rosenstein who cut Mueller off at the knees:

Specifically, the special counselís report addressed conspiracy and obstruction of justice but did not discuss related counterintelligence issues. Schmidt reveals that we can blame that on Rod Rosenstein, then deputy attorney general.

According to Schmidt, in the hand-off of the FBI investigation to Mueller, in the aftermath of the firing of Comey, Rosenstein deliberately narrowed the special counselís remit. The deputy attorney general directed Mueller to concentrate on criminality. Whether Trump was a Russian agent was not on the special counselís plate.

According to Schmidt, Rosenstein ďhad foreclosed any deeper inquiry before investigation even beganĒ.
