The wife of Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker wrote to a journalist this week and hinted that the Russia investigation might be ending soon.

Marci Whitaker emailed Slate's Mark Joseph Stern and tried to pick apart a story he co-wrote, which was published Monday and was critical of her husband on several fronts.

Among the points Marci Whitaker made in her note was a potential revelation in regards to special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

The full text of her reference to the probe:

"It isn't really or shouldn't be that controversial to state that the Mueller investigation should stay within the parameters given. Particularly when that is said more than a year prior as the investigation is just beginning. Why would a person need to recuse oneself for that mild statement? If abundance of caution is the standard, anyone who ever spent 5 minutes contemplating the topic would need to do so. And by all means, assume that a person who speculated on a hypothetical scenario would then put some dark plan into motion, when by all accounts, the investigation is wrapping up and [the] eyes of the nation are upon them.

"Yeah, that's pretty realistic. Oh, and I guess you missed that the Supreme Court decided not to take up the temporary appointment challenge. Most organizations had given up on that angle of attack quite a while ago. Kudos to your perseverance, misguided though it may be."

Mueller and his team are tight-lipped about the progress of their investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to defeat Democrat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.
