A Buzzfeed reporter reveals from sources that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 elections is immune to any funding gaps caused by a federal government shutdown, adding that the investigation has “indefinite appropriation.”
As President Donald Trump and his allies in the House double down on their promise to build a southern border wall and strengthen border security, increasing the likelihood of a government shutdown, a new report indicates Mueller’s special counsel investigation will be immune to any funding gaps.
Buzzfeed reporter Zoe Tillman wrote on Twitter that “special counsel Robert Mueller’s office would *not* be affected,” in the event of a shutdown, as the office is “funded through a ‘permanent indefinite appropriation,’ per a spokesperson.”

Tillman added that unlike Mueller’s office, federal courts have a funding contingency that will last three weeks, allowing the court system to remain open until a funding bill could be passed. Should this funding run out, this could result in a situation where Mueller’s office is able to continue the seemingly never ending investigation while “federal defenders, probation and pretrial services, and federal bankruptcy courts” are all closed.
The reporter reiterated that, should Congress fail to pass a funding bill and cause a partial government shutdown, Mueller’s office will remain open and continue their investigation.
To recap: If there's a government shutdown, the special counsel's office will keep working, and the courts will be open

Mueller is facing increased criticism from both pundits on the right and members of the Trump administration, as acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker has refused to recuse himself from overseeing Mueller’s investigation, something former Attorney General Jeff Sessions did almost immediately after assuming the position.
Taxpayer-Funded Commission Talks Smack About President Trump
There Are Many Subversive Actors Within the American Government Who Want to See President Trump Fail
Cyber Solarium, a taxpayer-funded Defense Department commission, made it clear last month that it is not on President Trump’s side.
The nationalist group Republicans for National Renewal brought Cyber Solairum’s subversiveness to America First patriots’ attention on Twitter by pointing out the commission’s anti-Trump retweets.
RNR cited Cyber Solarium’s retweet of Maine Senator Angus King’s praise of Chris Krebs, the former director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency.
On November 16, King tweeted, “Chris Krebs is a dedicated public servant who has helped build up new cyber capabilities in the face of swiftly-evolving dangers. By firing him for doing his job, President Trump is harming all Americans – who rely on CISA’s defenses, even if they don’t know it. My statement:”

President Donald Trump fired Krebs last month for his denial of there being any widespread fraud during the 2020 election. This angered establishment politicians like King, who penned a press release condemning the president’s actions.
In the press release, Krebs declared “Chris Krebs is an incredibly bright, high-performing, and dedicated public servant, who has helped build up new cyber capabilities in the face of swiftly-evolving dangers. This year’s robust election security and public awareness campaign exceeded our expectations, especially given the unique political and technological challenges. Equally important is the less publicized work CISA has done to protect our nation’s other critical infrastructure assets. We should be empowering Chris and his team to do more, not punishing them for their doing their job.”
King continued attacking the President and expressed his optimism with regards to a Biden administration correcting this “error.”
“By firing Mr. Krebs for simply doing his job, President Trump is inflicting severe damage on all Americans – who rely on CISA’s defenses, even if they don’t know it. If there’s any silver lining in this unjust decision, it’s this: I hope that President-elect Biden will recognize Chris’s contributions, and consult with him as the Biden administration charts the future of this critically important agency.”
It’s clear that there are many subversive elements within the American government that want Trump out. It’s a telltale sign of the institutional decline the U.S. has experienced over the years as its constitutional republican model has been pushed aside in favor of an administrative state that is completely hostile to a nationalist presidency.
America First nationalists will have to clean house at the federal level in order to ensure that no future nationalist administrations ever get derailed from within again.
