The big picture: These sources say the Mueller team hasn’t had a substantive or consequential conversation with Trump’s lawyers in weeks. That, coupled with an inactive grand jury and members of Mueller’s team returning to their old jobs, has led Trump’s team to anticipate that Mueller could be done any day now.

The bottom line: We’ve seen no evidence that there’s any sense of panic or great urgency inside the White House even as the end of the probe appears imminent.
