The Mueller Report was a Referral for Impeachment.

Mueller said as much in the report and his testimony, as he was not able to either charge or absolve MF45. Because of the DOJ policy that no sitting president can be indicted it was not a prosecutory case, there could be no binary choice. Impeachment is the only remedy.

I know many of us were disappointed (understatement) in the outcome of what was our only hope for a very long time. Mueller's halo was tarnished and some of us wondered if he was maybe failing in health, or maybe on MF45's side. We scratched our heads and tried to move on, as we endured the insufferable gloating of MF45.

Ever since the Ukraine scheme broke, I've been thinking a lot about Mueller and that 400 page report his investigation produced. A document that Congress and the public have still not yet seen unredacted. A document that is so detailed most Americans have no interest in attempting to read it (redacted). 400 pages of evidence.

I'm now getting a clearer picture of what Mueller did, despite the handicap he had, while still trying to do his duty to this country. We know that Rosenstein was not a friend. We know that Barr twisted the report to exonerate MF45. Mueller said nothing.

Perhaps he knew, as Nancy Pelosi did, that eventually, Trump would impeach himself. He certainly gave him the rope.

It's all going to come out, all of it.

1. Yet nothing was done with his meticulous effort

I would be very disheartened. Work on something for years and people don't even read it.

3. My hope is that the prosecutions that come after MF45 will use the report.

6. His fault for not calling out Barr and saying exactly what he thought.

10. You are probably right. And I think he could have been

more succinct with a boom boom boom itemization summary. Or we could have done that. But despite all that, maybe he gave us everything he could at that moment? Given obstruction. Mark it down in history as one of those things that you would pick for knowing the whole truth about. For some people (like him)...chain of command trump's everything else. Damn chain of command!

16. Yes! I sat in awe when the world was waiting for our immediate

outrage and declaration that there were impeachable acts, only to see nothing day after day after day. Luckily for all, trump did something else that was deemed worse.

5. I feel that Muellers intent was (He did his job NOW)

Congress needs to do theirs! That was what he was hoping!

7. we certainly haven't heard the last of the mueller report.

and collusion will eventually be proven. were it not for the obstruction, mueller would have been able to prove collusion, and were it not for the cloak of the presidency and the DOJ memo, he would have indicted for obstruction. congress is going to keep working on this as impeachment inquiry moves forward, and someday it will be proven in a court of law.

8. Mueller knew Obstruction was not the main crime, that's why he contorted his

reasoning to let trump and his campaign off the hook for the trump tower meeting (reasoning that trump Junior was too stupid to have the intent necessary to break the law), Manafort giving polling data to Ruskies (poor Mueller couldnít come up with a value for the data), and something like 18 other allegations where Mueller specifically said that the investigation found no evidence.

It is too late for the Mueller Report to be effective in an Impeachment, other than ó ďOh, yeah in addition to the Ukrainian shakedown, welcoming future foreign interference in our elections, we remind you of shady dealings in the Mueller Report and the trump adminís Obstruction of the investigation that likely covered up other crimes.Ē

As far as Iím concerned, Mueller is no different from anyone else who supports or covers for trump.

12. So, you are saying he magnified the obstruction side

But knew it was really collusion...just couldn't prove? By couldn't meaning he didn't have the hard evidence or was told to squelch?

The Ukraine deal demonstrates so well that trump et al had the propensity to have been deep into the Russian rigging. It would have to be 1 in a trillion odds that he wasn't complicit in it.

15. Not really, saying Mueller let him off hook. Thank dog he's not involved in Ukrainian shakedown.

I donít doubt trump was involved in Russian interference. But Mueller said, over and over, he found no evidence of conspiracy, cooperation, collusion, whatever one wants to call it. In one place he meekly stated that obstruction might have hidden some facts. Every time he said he found no evidence implicating trump or his campaign, he should have said explicitly that trumpís obstruction LIKELY obscured the evidence. But he didnít.

13. There was more than enough in the report- and in the public discourse that Trump himself had put out

- to impeach Trump. Long ago. This "we had to wait until now" is revisionist history and complete bullshit. Sorry. We've all ALWAYS known who this guy is.
