Bauer chimes in on Mueller investigation: 'Wrap it up'

Mueller and ComeyConservative activist Gary Bauer is joining others in calling for the Robert Mueller investigation to be brought to a conclusion.

Bauer, chairman of the Campaign for Working Families, argues that every American should want the investigation to be brought to a conclusion. "They've had a year now [with] unlimited resources to investigate things way beyond the original issue of alleged collusion with Russia, of which none has been found," he notes.

According to CNBC, special counsel Mueller – who was given the task of investigating alleged "Russia collusion" in the 2016 presidential election – has requested witnesses to turn over their cell phones for their encrypted messaging programs to be inspected. Mueller (pictured above, right) wants to examine conversations on messaging programs like WhatsApp, Confide, Signal, and Dust, which are designed to keep conversations private. Some witnesses have already complied out of fear of subpoena if they don't.

To many observers, this latest revelation is another indication that Mueller isn't going away. In fact, many in the GOP are concerned that the expensive, never-ending investigation by the special counsel may not be concluded by Election Day, thereby giving Democrats the chance to continue the unproven narrative that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians in 2016.

Bauer says he is joining those who have publicly called in recent days for Mueller to – in the words of Vice President Mike Pence – "wrap it up."

Bauer, Gary (American Values)"The country is facing major challenges all over the world from Iran to China to Russia to North Korea," he points out. "Whether you're a conservative, a liberal, a Republican, a Democrat, [or] an Independent, you should feel that it's not good for a president to be hobbled and constantly under examination the way President Trump has been the last year."

The Mueller investigation turned one year old on May 10. Shortly after the one-year anniversary, the president of Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton, characterized the investigation as an "unmitigated disaster" that has "victimized" the president from the get-go.
