The calm before the storm seems to be drawing to an end as signs point to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s likely return to the public eye after a self-imposed midterm hibernation.

That looming possibility is not sitting well with the White House, according to a Thursday Politico report.

Scattered reports plus President Donald Trump’s clearly increasing agitation have led observers to believe that Mueller is readying a new batch of indictments.

Adding fuel to the fire, this week Mueller’s team sent a judge a statement about former Trump campaign deputy Rick Gates’ continued cooperation, adding that he was not ready for sentencing. Mueller’s lawyers also joined former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort’s attorneys in filing joint motions that confirm his cooperation as well.

In addition, former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen was reportedly spotted with his attorneys in Union Station, causing some to wonder if he was in town to meet with Mueller’s lawyers.
