Here is the catch 22

Mueller can't indict because of the OLC, but Barr can clear Trump because of the OLC not allowing Mueller to indict.

Notice the double speak in William Barr's response to Mueller's televised statement yesterday.

"I personally felt he could have reached a decision as to whether it was criminal activity...the opinion says you can't indict...but he had his reasons for not doing it which he explained...but when he didn't make a decision the Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and I felt it necessary as the heads of the department to make a decision."

This is total double speak. It starts with Barr saying he "personally felt he (Mueller) could have reached a decision". Then he contradicts himself by giving the reason Mueller didn't make the decision, then goes on to say because the decision wasn't made he (Barr) and Rosenstein did it as heads of the department.

Yeah, like he had no choice but to misrepresent the report.

This is the kind of slick bullshit Orwell warned about! Think about it.

Whatever happened with Mueller appearing before Congress?

Is that going to happen? I thought they had originally planned for this Wednesday.

I think I actually got through to a Trump supporter

I don't know if it will stick or not, but I got one to at least acknowledge the glaring differences between Barr's summary and the actual Mueller report.

The Mueller report is a good thing to use on Trump supporters because they have been preconditioned to think it totally exonerates Trump. If you show them how it actually does not exonerate, they just might start to feel a little foolish. This of course won't work on everyone, but I think it could actually open a few eyes. It worked at least to get a reasonable discussion out someone I know.

Try this on family and friends.

Does Trump think Russian interference never took place?

I think that would be a great question to ask him in future candidate debates.
