As long as the special counsel investigates they can refuse to answer questions about the investigation.
Many people have demanded that Robert Mueller end his investigation. But he won’t. As long as the special counsel investigates Russia and stupid lies about collusion and affecting an election deep state agents can say they won’t answer questions about an “open investigation.”
This is why Peter Strzok is so impervious to questions.
About the only lawful way this can be handled, in my opinion, is if Donald Trump fires everyone involved and then has every official involved in this outrage investigated for treason.
The Federalist reports, “The DOJ Has Turned The Russia Investigation Into A Puzzle Designed Never To Be Solved.”
How long will the investigation into the 2016 cyber intrusion into the Democratic National Committee servers remain open and ongoing? Perhaps forever. Because that’s how long the Department of Justice needs to thwart Congressional oversight of the embarrassing details of the dubious origins of the investigation. See the way DOJ cited the “ongoing” nature of the investigation to block Congressional Oversight here, here, here, and here to name just a few examples.
When Congress has successfully pried information from DOJ, it has discovered DOJ sometimes redacted or withheld information to shield DOJ from embarrassment — not to protect the integrity of any investigation. For example: here, here, and here. So long as the Russia investigation remains “ongoing and open,” DOJ remains shielded from publicly answering questions […].
Like Leonard Shelby in “Memento,” Rosenstein and others embarrassed by DOJ’s actions may derive raison d’être, if not safety, from the never-ending nature of the investigation. And like Leonard Shelby’s investigative file, the Russia investigation has become a puzzle that is designed to never be solved. Because to do so would end the “ongoing investigation” excuse that keeps the cause of DOJ’s embarrassment under wraps.
The key to understanding all of this starts with Perkins Coie, a law firm hired by Hillary Clinton and the DNC.
According to the DNC, the Russians broke into their servers in April 2016. Let’s remember a critical point I recently made in the Federalist: After more than 800 days (longer than the entire Nixon-Watergate ordeal) Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his law enforcement team have yet to examine the scene of this crime (the DNC server). Nor has Mueller interviewed Julian Assange, the first person known to be in possession of the emails taken from the DNC server.
Not only has the FBI failed to examine the scene of the crime, it likely never will in any meaningful way. […] the cyber security firm the DNC and Clinton used to investigate the 2016 data breach may have hopelessly tainted the evidence before law enforcement could verify its claims of Russian hacking.
