Special counsel Robert Mueller is preparing to deliver his findings on major points in the Russia probe, like any collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign or any obstruction of justice by the President himself, shortly after the midterms, according to a Wednesday Bloomberg report.

This does not necessarily mean that Mueller’s findings will be made public, as he can reportedly only share his conclusions with Deputy Attorney Rod Rosenstein, who has some discretion about what details to share with Congress and the public.

The special counsel is facing pressure from all sides to either produce more indictments or shut down the investigation.

Per Bloomberg, the next three weeks will likely be quiet on the Russia front, since Mueller would be hesitant to drop any news that could affect the midterm elections. Nevertheless, the largely leak-proof investigation may be working on major developments behind the scenes, and new discoveries could keep the investigation going even after the likely post-midterm revelations.
