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.

Prosecutors Move to Drop Charges Against Russians Charged By Robert Mueller
A nothingburger all along.
Federal prosecutors have given a tacit admission of the pointlessness of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russian conspiracy probe one year after its conclusion, dropping charges against the Russian nationals accused of orchestrating an “election interference” operation in the United States during the 2016 election.
Court documents revealed that the prosecutors are dropping charges on Monday.

Concord Management is a Russian company accused of being the parent of the Internet Research Agency, another Russian entity that Mueller accused of running troll farms that post memes and comment online about the 2016 election. 12 employees of Concord Management were charged by Mueller for the supposed operation.
The individuals in question weren’t American residents, and only some of them were present in the country for a period.
The prosecutors overseeing the case against the Russians admitted that there was no chance the individuals, who live across the world, would be meaningfully punished for their supposed election interference operations.
The men were said to be agents of the Russian state intelligence agency known as the GRU. Mueller claimed that they were responsible for the infamous hack of the DNC’s email servers during the 2016 Democratic convention.
“Concord, a Russian company with no presence in the United States and no exposure to meaningful punishment in the event of a conviction, promotes neither the interests of justice or the nation’s security… The better course is to cease litigation as to the Concord defendants.”
It was quite obvious since the beginning that wire fraud charges against Russian residents with no presence in the United States was going to be a fruitless endeavor, but the Deep State’s man intended to deliver a gesture for the bureaucratic entity, regardless of the substance behind it.
Already largely forgotten, the Mueller probe appears set to enter the memory hole as little more than a pointless hoax in light of the dismissed charges against supposed “election interference” perpetrators.
