Mueller mystery: What are the other 12 criminal referrals?

The Mueller report mentions that he's made criminal referrals in 14 cases. Only two are publicly known.ile

Over the course of its sprawling 22-month investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, the special counsel's team referred 14 criminal cases to other offices, Mueller's 448-page report revealed.

Only two of those referrals -- one involving former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, the other former Obama White House counsel Gregory Craig -- are public at this point.

"During the course of the investigation, the Office periodically identified evidence of potential criminal activity that was outside the scope of the Special Counsel's jurisdiction," the report says. "After consultation with the Office of the Deputy Attorney General, the Office referred that evidence to appropriate law enforcement authorities, principally other components of the Department of Justice and the FBI."

Information on the mystery referrals was redacted for potential "harm to (an) ongoing matter," the report said.

Note well: Each referral can lead to multiple indictments and convictions of multiple people.

Also discussion in GD.

2. Unless one of the referrals is trump or a relative, he let them off the hook.

4. True but on the other hand I doubt he would announce that he did refer them either as it

would make the investigation that much more difficult and it would allow Trump to try and obstruct it and intimidate any witnesses.

7. And it could be. I noticed that none of the discussion in the report

(not that I've read the whole thing) seems to be about individual Russians -- e.g., mobsters -- who might have been colluding with Trump or the kids, laundering their money through Trump properties, etc.

Maybe the SDNY is very busy with cases dealing with the Russian mob and the Trump mob.

3. Wasn't that part of the reason Stone wanted the full report. He was complaining

that other people had lied to the Special Council but they were not charged (but maybe they were and the indictments have not been made public yet).

5. Stone was grandstanding as he knows his ass is in trouble so he is trying the kitchen sink defense

and his fallback plan is to ask Trump for a pardon should that fail.

6. Yes, but apparently this came from his lawyers, because they got discovery from the special council

and now they want the full report because they claim some people lied and were not charged, at least that is what Rachel Maddow was reporting the other night.
