Last night it was revealed that the current occupant of the White House errr, Tippy Top building, is not a criminal target in the special counsel's investigation.
From WaPo:
Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III informed President Trump’s attorneys last month that he is continuing to investigate the president but does not consider him a criminal target at this point, according to three people familiar with the discussions.

In private negotiations in early March about a possible presidential interview, Mueller described Trump as a subject of his investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election. Prosecutors view someone as a subject when that person has engaged in conduct that is under investigation but there is not sufficient evidence to bring charges.

Mueller is continuing to investigate the president but does not consider him a criminal target. tRump is still under criminal investigation. From the article linked above:
However, legal experts said Mueller’s description of Trump as a subject of a grand jury probe does not mean he is in the clear.

Under Justice Department guidelines, a subject of an investigation is a person whose conduct falls within the scope of a grand jury’s investigation. A target is a person for which there is substantial evidence linking him or her to a crime.

A subject could become a target with his or her own testimony, legal experts warn.
If tRump doesn't give Mueller the interview he is asking for, he may have to face a Grand Jury, with no lawyers present. This is by design.

He's not currently a target. If he lies under oath he will become one very quickly. Yesterday the first person received jail time in this investigation. We also learned Deputy AG Rosenstein gave Mueller the go-ahead to further investigate Paul Manafort.

Depending on how one looks at this Special investigation, things are coming together or perhaps unraveling. This is not good news for this administration, at all.

Hopefully, it will be good news for our country.
