Does the redacted section of the 8/2/17 Mueller scope memo relate to President Trump?— Techno Fog (@Techno_Fog) May 7, 2020
Recall McCabe's admission that he opened an FBI investigation into Trump "as an agent of Russia" in May 2017...

If true that would be important because, as Undercover Huber points out (above) the only know allegations against Trump himself were "obstruction" allegations based on the firing of Comey. You wind up with double barreled idiocy or legal/investigative fraud.
1. The allegation would amount to claiming that POTUS can't fire Director, FBI--absurd.
2. But it would rely on the legitimacy of the Russia Hoax, because the point of obstructing Comey would be to obstruct Crossfire Hurricane--and the basis for that had been totally debunked 8 mos. earlier.
Bottom line: if the fifth part is indeed aimed at Trump it's definitely not done in good faith.
Rosenstein was just giving Mueller fishing licenses to fish for any stuff that Mueller might use to threaten prosecution and to offer deals to Manafort, Papadopoulos or Flynn in exchange for ratting on Trump about anything.
