Mom has been the word for last year when Special Advisor Robert Mueller solves the accusations of collusion and obstruction and persecutes the Russian election hackers.
However, the speculation unraveled on the Friday before Labor Day, that Mueller could issue a final report and formally conclude its end of the investigation before the long weekend.
However, the speculation unraveled on the Friday before Labor Day, about the possibility that Mueller could issue a final report and formally conclude its end of the investigation before the long weekend.
Or, worse for the president, it was predicted that Mueller planned an explosive announcement that could send shockwaves through Washington.
As of Friday morning, Mueller had not responded to a letter from Trump's legal team weeks ago stating the conditions under which the president would accept an interview, suggesting with the action that the president's testimony is no longer necessary or that researchers are tracking down new clues before agreeing to an agreement.
A spokeswoman for the Justice Department told DailyMail.com on Friday morning that it is a "false news". that the action is imminent. Sarah Flores said that an announcement that would come out of the DOJ would be minor and would not directly involve the special advisor.
The spokesman for the special council, Peter Carr, rejected a request for comments.
Later, a US attorney accused an associate of Paul Manafort for not registering as a foreign agent after allegedly accepting more than $ 1 million to advise a Ukrainian political party that sided with Russia.
Mueller referred the case to the US attorney. UU For Washington.

The White House has been relatively quiet since a double story last week on Tuesday, when Trump's former lawyer, Michael Cohen, committed eight crimes and a jury found Manafort, former president of the Trump campaign, guilty of eight others, although The president has spoken personally about the issues.
The president's staff has been talking mainly with Trump, who has been responsible for the crimes of his associates, in which he says he did not participate, in comments to reporters and on Twitter.
Manafort was tried by a special lawyer and convicted by a jury of financial crimes that predated his work for Trump.
Cohen, on the other hand, stated in a guilty plea that two of the crimes he claims to have committed, which amounted to campaign finance violations, were under the direction of President Trump. He says the president ordered him to enter secret money deals to prevent women from talking about matters they say they had with Trump.
Only once since the courts weighed on the crimes of Manafort and Cohen in consecutive announcements, the White House carried out a television report for journalists.
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters the following day: "The Manafort case has nothing to do with the president, it has nothing to do with his campaign and it has nothing to do with white House. & # 39;
From Cohen, she claimed that the White House had "extensively" commented on the president's conduct outside the office and reminded him that "there are no charges against him."
"As the President said, and we have said many times," he said, "he did nothing wrong."
Giuliani has not appeared on television, apart from an ambush interview in Scotland, since Cohen and his lawyer accused the president of committing crimes.
He said in a brief statement on paper at the time that "there are no allegations of any crime against the president in government positions" and that "Cohen's actions reflect a pattern of lies and dishonesty for a significant period of time."
Approximately two weeks earlier, Giuliani and another Trump lawyer, Jay Sekulow, had sent a letter to the special adviser in response to a request for an interview with Trump.
They have refused to say in the registry what the letter said, but it was reported that they are trying to limit the amount of questions that Mueller can ask about the allegations of obstruction of justice.
"We will leave some room for maneuver," Giuliani told Politico on August 7. "It's not so much about obstruction questions, it's really punching."
Giuliani told the publication that Trump's legal team does not want to date him, but that his willingness to recommend an interview with Mueller to Trump would diminish as the mid-term elections approached.
He told CNN the next day: "We do not want to compete with the November elections. So back from that, this should have ended before September 1st. "
He said at the time that Trump's legal team would need about three weeks to prepare the president for an interview with Mueller and that the process had not begun.
Sekulow confirmed to DailyMail.com on Friday that Mueller's team had not responded to the letter. He stressed that Labor Day was never a difficult and fast deadline for the completion of the special lawyer's investigation.
Michael Cohen affirmed in a guilty plea that two crimes he claims to have committed, which amounted to campaign financing violations, were under the direction of President Trump.
It was Giuliani who first established the expectation that the research that began in May 2017 would be completed by Monday.
Giuliani told the New York Times in May that the office of the special adviser said that September 1 was a possible end date, as long as Trump cooperated with an interview.
Since then, the president's legal team has been working with the special lawyer's office to create an interview framework in which the president would undergo an interrogation on alleged collusion but not obstruction of justice.
Trump's legal team maintains that the president has the constitutional authority to hire and fire whoever he pleases. He can not be charged with a crime for firing former FBI Director James Comey, they say, because it is within his constitutional rights and also because a sitting president can not be charged.
The Constitution of the USA UU He says the only way a president can be removed from office for committing "felonies and misdemeanors" is through a vote and trial in Congress.
An opinion from the Office of the Legal Counsel of 2000 supports the claim, but the charge has never been tried in a court of law.
An indictment by the president by the special attorney or a subpoena to testify would shoot up to the Supreme Court, which is currently divided 4-4 after Judge Anthony Kennedy's summer retirement.
Trump rushes to put another conservative on the bench before the court begins its October session, and the Senate Judiciary Committee, led by the Republicans, is working furtively to meet their demands. The committee will hold a three-day hearing on the appointment of candidate Brett Kavanaugh next week.
Trump has openly predicted that Mueller, a Republican, and his team of "angry democrats" will continue their work in the fall in order to "put some damage to the Republican Party" in federal elections.
& # 39; Do not worry about Dems FISA Abuse, missing emails or fraudulent dossier! & # 39; he said, touching misdeeds that the Republicans say he did the opposite.
The pandemonium created by the ongoing investigation of the special lawyer has been consuming Trump, who tweeted ad nauseam this week about the abuses he says have been occurring within the Department of Justice.
He made it clear at a meeting Thursday night that if the FBI and DOJ do not start to do their job & # 39; could take unilateral measures.
"What is happening is a disgrace and at some point, I wanted to stay outside, but at some point, if it is not fixed properly," he warned, "I will get involved."
