Three things about the Mueller Report I want to know

1. Why did he not interview Trump, Jared, and Jr.? He claimed it was a time issue however there wasn't this time issue for Bill and Hillary.

2. Mueller claimed essentially that Junior was too stupid to commit any crimes regarding the Trump Tower affair.
How the hell does this make sense as a defense?

3. When Russian operatives reached out to the campaign and the campaign did not report that contact to the FBI, isn't that a crime?

1. 4. Why all the flipping and deals with no bigger fish?

Flynn and others seem to have gotten sweet deals for their testimony and "cooperation." Of what? Sweet deals usually only come with providing info about criminal conduct of someone higher up the food chain.

3. Maybe we have to wait for the 12 redacted cases, IF they don't get dropped by the DOJ....

 

I would guess Barr could order the other divisions not to pursue them if he wanted to, and if he did order them to drop the cases, they could be made public?

4. I can offer a point of view on at least question one.

I don't see question one as a double standard issue as it pertains to the people being investigated, but rather the matter being investigated. The investigation into Bill and Hillary was not a legitimate and super-serious matter of national security. This is. For my money, I'd rather have the evidence we got out now, without Trump et al sitting for interviews, than potentially have the findings kept under wraps up to and quite possibly beyond 2020.

5. I can answer the first part of #1

 

Trump was advised (wisely) never to meet Mueller face to face.

So Mueller was forced to proceed with no interview or settle for a written interrogatory.

And why didn't he push harder? I believe he was unwilling to push the point that hard when he indicated that no crimes were committed.

6. He stated on number one that he never would have been allowed to in his lifetime as it would have...

 

faced a long court battle. You know the tRump administration wouldn't have fast tracked that one to the Supreme Court. It would have taken forever with every stalling tactic in the book.

8. Jared "works" in the executive branch and is family. Since we really haven't had a legal question ..

 

regarding nepotism, which is why they probably frown on it, I would imagine the White House would have fought that as privileged information also as far as they could. To be honest, I don't get it either, especially the menage a trois with JR, Assange, and the GRU....

9. My second point

 

I don't get how the Tower meeting could have been legal.
