Mueller zeroes in: New revelations about Manafort and other Trump associates make clear the special counsel must, must, must complete his work

Emerging facts underline the imperative: Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the election must conclude without political interference.

Monday came the special counsel’s stunning charge in court that former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort breached his September guilty plea deal by repeatedly lying to prosecutors.

Tuesday, The Guardian reported that just before joining the campaign, Manafort met in London with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, a claim Manafort categorically denies.

Separately, a Mueller draft court document asserts that Trump whisperer and ex-Manafort business partner Roger Stone was made aware in August of Assange’s plans to dump hacked Democratic emails.

As the truth comes out, the President has resumed his hysterical attacks on Mueller’s “Gang of Angry Democrats.” His claims are undercut by the quiet professionalism of the special counsel’s team.

Were they motivated by partisan animus, Mueller & Co. would have dribbled out damning pre-election leaks. They instead put noses to grindstones, filling out a picture that has already brought at least 35 indictments or guilty pleas.

Even as Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker likely breathes hot air down his neck, Mueller must press on.

The best way to guarantee he will is for Congress to safeguard him from presidential mischief. Sen. Jeff Flake is holding to his promise to vote against Trump judicial nominees unless and until such legislation comes to the floor.

Kudos to him, and shame on the senators and representatives who whistle past the looming threat.
