3. Also, why did the Senate not ask Mueller for the memos?

Is he refusing them?

10. I believe he is.

He knows that releasing them to Congress means that Sessions and Trump will see them and adjust their story to them accordingly. He's keeping them close to the vest which means that he trusts their validity and will at some point use them to gauge the truthfulness of the two.

12. Yes...I had heard that originally

but I thought I heard that the memos would be released to Senate after Comey testified?

11. I just love listening to Dan Rather....

He explains events so well...I wish they had him on more often just to explain what is happening....

4. Was Trump just flattering Mueller to try to co-opt him?

That's his M.O. But it won't work.

15. That should inoculate Mueller from the inevitable charges of incompetence

"Mueller's just hopeless. He doesn't know what he's doing."

"Then why were you considering him for the FBI job?"

"Did I tell you about how I won the popular vote, too?"

16. He used to be the Director of the FBI -- before Comey.

He retired to go into private practice. So the job of Special Counsel, which should have a much sooner end-date, makes more sense than going back to his old job.
