One investigation leader noted every new witness "puts about three more weeks into an investigation."
It looks like the investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 election, and the Trump campaign's potential ties to the country, won't be coming to an end with 2017.
Rep. Adam Schiff is the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee. He says the committee's investigation could take "many months of work," noting it still has scores of witnesses to question. Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr echoed those sentiments, noting that every new witness the committee finds "puts about three more weeks into an investigation."
Outside of Congress, the Department of Justice's special counsel Robert Mueller has already netted a few guilty pleas, and his investigation is likely to pick up steam in 2018 — despite what President Donald Trump's lawyers are saying.
Trump attorney Ty Cobb recently said Mueller's interviews with White House officials had all been wrapped up. But former Assistant FBI Director Ron Hosko told USA Today this might just be round one: Mueller is likely to ask for additional interviews if any of his initial questioning clashes with the evidence he's gathered.
The Trump administration and the GOP have been pushing for a swift end to the probes. President Trump tweeted Tuesday that the investigation is "tainted," and some Republicans have claimed some of the investigators are biased against Trump.
But as of right now, there's no clear evidence the investigations will shut down any time soon.
