    Pretty considerable bummer for the Right that it is pretty obvious Trump not only committed obstruction, but he did so multiple times. Furthermore Had he been any other person he would have been indicted and faced sentencing for those crimes.
    In addition and as confirmed once again (since it actually said so in the report) Trump was never exonerated by the Mueller Report.

      Miguel Vega wrong, there does not have to be underlying crime to obstruct an investigation. Obstructing an investigation is a crime in and of itself

      @U 812 "If we had had confidence the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so,"
      He did have the power to say the president DID NOT commit a crime. You lose the internet today for regurgitating a stupid take.

      Mueller can’t “exonerate” it’s not in his power to exonerate anyone.
      The USA- one is innocent until Proven guilty. Trump did the opposite of obstructing. He could’ve fired Mueller at will but Trump invited Mueller to investigate any possible 2016 election interferences... Russia, China.. including DEMs. But Biased Mueller hired all Democrat Lawyers.. intimidated, questioned and charged those around Trump.. gave the whole Fusion GPS scandal by DEMs & Russia a pass. It was a DeepState attempted coup, aka witch-hunt from the start. Trump would not be their puppet.

    All you fake media harp on about is public support ... You and the democrats don't have the public support on this you don't even have Mullers support on this, they the democrats want to once again entrap him, for him not being able to bring trump down... he asked the DOJ in a written letter what can he say and what can't he say... So he was asking for help... The DOJ wrote back that's bill Barr... It's a bloody sick witch hunt representative of the Nadler being the (witch finder general ) bribing, paying and pressuring people to bring down the president...

    From the Mueller report: "In this investigation, the evidence does not establish that the President was involved in an underlying crime related to Russian election interference. But the evidence does point to a range of other possible personal motives animating the President’s conduct. These include concerns that continued investigation would call into question the legitimacy of his election and potential uncertainty about whether certain events - such as advance notice of WikiLeaks’s release of hacked information or the June 9, 2016 meeting between senior campaign officials and Russians - could be seen as criminal activity by the President, his campaign, or his family."

    Dems know that impeaching Trump will backfire on them, so it won't happen. But they hope to make some hay by getting Mueller to get down and dirty on Trumpie and possibly improve their dismal chances for the 2020 election. The notion that Mueller is handcuffed by Barr is a good indication of just how clueless many people are. Mueller no longer works for Barr, he is a private citizen with first amendment rights. Regardless of what untruths he might say, he will not be charged with perjury. Perjury is obviously very hard to prove. Don't believe me? Watch this video.
    ruclip.com/video/dax8KvfPXPI/video.html
    Obstruction of justice? I suppose that is a hard one too. Deleting thousands of emails under congressional preservation order so that they were beyond forensic recovery did not meet the requirements.

    So Mueller is going to explain his report in simple terms for the sheep. Probably something he hopes will not go over their heads, like "Orange Man Bad... impeach"!

    Mueller thought he was under rule he could not indict a sitting president. After the report, Barr made Mueller look bad by stating he had options. This now opens the door for Mueller to go further. Question is will he?

    The difference will be: The Republicans will be primarily asking questions about things that Robert Muellor "DIDN'T" say in the report, (and attempting to "discredit Muellor) while Democrats will be focusing on the things Robert Muellor "DID" say in the report (and emphasizing his impeccable career)

    Think its unfair to even require or request him to testify. He said everything that he needed to say in his report.
    Trump has been doing bad things for a very long time, very experienced & skilled at hiding it.
    It would take a very long time to hone in on the acts.
    Its the DOJ obstructing now.

    No American was involved with the Russians attempted interference with the elections. Trump was not involved. And there was no obstruction of justice. Here in America we use the concept of due process, a person is considered innocent until proven guilty.
    Nothing is going to come out of the democrat clown show with Mueller. And the Senate will never agree to impeachment.
    You guys are tilting at windmills. Why don't you guys try to enjoy the good economy & the fact you live in America and not Venezuela....yet (the model your current democrat presidential candidates are aiming for if unfortunately one of them is elected)

  • Southern Fried Cynic

    *Short answer:* A bunch of BS and deflections.
    The report came out----the Democrats weren't happy. Mueller's press conference re-iterating the report came out-the Democrats weren't happy.
    Just how many times can one repeat the same experiment while hoping for different results without being considered a _fool?_
    "TRUMP MAN BAD" rhetoric is a corporate-media ruse to get liberals so worked up they'll vote for a Republican-lite neoliberal, so long as they're not Trump.
    The last time a populist, corporate shill got into power, it led to Donald Trump.
    Pelosi and the majority neoliberal Democrat party DNC would rather have Trump in power, than a progressive.

    Would love an explanation as to why the Steele Dossier (an admitted politically-funded document) was such a centerpiece of the original counter-intel investigation into a rival's campaign... yet Mueller never really set out to investigate its veracity (as Trump had asked Comey to do). Its almost as if Mueller and Weissmann investigated in search of a crime... and never really found one.

    Mueller needs to realize that by not 'picking a side' he is in fact picking a side. If he allows the lies to stand unchallenged and does not speak out against them, he is no better than Barr and Giuliani. He is allowing Trump to continue lying without censure just as the GOP have been doing for the past three years and more. He is nailing his colors to the mast of a corrupt Republican party.

      @Joe: When you go to a football game and the players are in their huddle, do you think that they are plotting to take over the US Government? I have laid out the facts for you. If you think that Mr. Mueller is part of the so-called "deep state", then you cannot be persuaded by anyone or anything and no amount of facts or reason or logic can get you to even have an open mind. Nice corresponding with you.

      @Donald Shaw Mueller is part of the deep state...in my opinion...part of the insurance policy against Trump.

      Donald Shaw Month ago

      @Joe: Mr. Mueller was nominated to be FBI Director by President George W. Bush and confirmed by the US Senate 98-0. He served for all 8 years. He did such a good job and is so universally respected that President Obama asked him to stay on and he was confirmed by the US Senate 100-0. He stayed on for 2 years. He has been confirmed by the US Senate for various positions in the Justice Department in the administrations of Presidents H. W. Bush, W. Clinton, W. Bush and B. Obama. Mr. Mueller's credentials are impeccable and his integrity is unimpeachable. Republicans loved him until he was asked to be Special Counsel and began investigating Russian interference in our 2016 election.

      Mueller never said that, it was Fred Flintstone Barr and Trump and Fox news. Why are they now telling Mueller he can not answer all question congress might ask him. Don Jr lied about the Russia trump tower meeting for weeks until more and more was exposed. Why lie if you did nothing wrong. I fell trump can build a trump tower where ever the world will let him. But to lie about and try to cover it is part that proves they are hiding more.
