Robert Mueller Didn't Finish The Job, And We'll Never Know Why

The Mueller report treats Trump and his family with kid gloves.

But Mueller didn’t interview them, didn’t subpoena them, and didn’t look like he even tried. The issue of Don Jr., in particular, is infuriating. The June 9th meeting at Trump Tower — the one to collect “dirt” on Hillary Clinton where Don Jr. said “if it’s what you say I love it” — was the subject of much discussion in the report. This meeting was organized by Don Jr., and roped in Jared Kushner. Later Donald Trump would lie about the meeting, dictating a false statement about it that he forced Don Jr. to issue. This meeting is one of the clearest indications we have that the Trump campaign generally and Don Jr. specifically were willing to work with the Russians to win the election. But Mueller declined to pursue Don Jr.

(my, Joe's, opinion below),

I repeat that I think Mueller's "job" was to use Barr's words, "land the plane", in this case the GOP plane, safely. Or in my original words "protect the GOP."

After today, I'm certain Mueller did his "job" and not only protected the GOP but also Trump Jr., Jared and Ivanka because to charge any of those people would have made Trump flip out and provide further proof of his inability to faithfully execute the law because Trump himself is a long-time criminal who would do anything to protect himself and his family.

That Trump Jr. was too stupid to conspire with the others is a stupid theory. As many of us were told in grade school: ignorance is no defense.

And there is nothing in the report what Trump told Barr, including if he told Barr to order Mueller to protect him and his family.

If any of this was in the report, it would not only end Trump's presidency, but also hurt the GOP immensely.

Thanks to Pilot Barr and co-pilot Mueller, the GOP plane has been landed safely.

6. Exactly what I think. Mueller had

no choice. We know there is much more far worse than what Trump has done while President. His finances/taxes are his achilles heel. We must be patient. In the meantime he will continue to lie and distract.
"A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on."
This quote by Churchill keeps me patient and hopeful.

8. My parents and some of my siblings (9 of us children!), because of the abortion issue, treated...

...Republicanism as a religion. They feel that issue is paramount, and so is the GOP. In other words they are above the law because what they consider infanticide is far worse and therefore they are free to ignore laws on what they consider lesser crimes.

14. As someone that finished HS in the late 60's, it wasn't always like this....

I can remember very well when women of child bearing age viewed abortion rights as a Godsend. Even the Protestant churches, notably Evangelicals, did not take a hard line about abortion rights but rather viewed it as a Woman's Health Issue. Also birth control was a godsend for many families and young girls. Then the politics of divide started and things have gone downhill since.

I don't know the answer - my preference would be to let women's health issue be a medical decision and not a political one. Those with deeply held religious beliefs could make personal decisions based those beliefs. But Noooooo......if there is a way to gain political power then you can bet it will find its way into American politics.

We saw the GOP go from a big business (Capitalism) first party, to the party of morals, to family values, to now who knows what? You can certainly take any sort of values out of the equation.

If Roe v Wade were overturned by the SCOTUS then maybe that might change things around? I just don't know. I'm thinking that maybe a minority-majority will probably be a bigger influence or maybe even the Millennials might be a sea change?? I suspect I won't live long enough to see any sort of social cohesiveness but you never know what the future will bring.

I do know that this present tribalism in the US cannot be good for any of us and will probably end badly.

9. Because completion of the job is in Congress's hands per the Constitution. So call your GOP Senators

10. Yes! And then yell at them, as loud as you can, to investigate and impeach!

Before it is too late to save our nation.

Seems very fishy.
