Whitaker's Post Provides Ample Tools to Disrupt Mueller Probe

Steven Cash was quoted in an article, "Whitaker's Post Provides Ample Tools to Disrupt Mueller Probe," published by The Hill. The article discusses whether any actions by the newly appointed Attorney General, Matthew Whitaker, could affect Special Counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

As noted in the article, legal analysts such as Cash, who used to work for the Senate Intelligence Committee and as legal counsel to Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), said that if the administration were to end the investigation prematurely or fire the special counsel, those moves would not erase the work Mueller has already done, such as securing the cooperation of several key witnesses, including former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, and compiling grand jury testimony and evidence in the 18 months since the start of his investigation.

"It's really hard to put that toothpaste back in the tube," Cash told The Hill.
