Special Counsel Robert Mueller gave a ten-minute explanation of his report’s conclusions on Wednesday, May 29, 2019 (Statement). Relying on a 2000 Justice Department Office of Legal Counsel opinion titled, “A  Sitting President’s Amenability to Indictment and Criminal Prosecution” (Opinion) and on his investigation (Report), a soft-spoken Mueller blasted some of the idiotic characterizations of his work.

Here are some of his points, all plainly spelled out in the Report but distorted by talking airheads who cannot read, cannot understand or do not want to do either.

  1. “… a sitting President is constitutionally immune from indictment and criminal prosecution. Opinion.
  2. “…”if we had confidence that the President clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said that.” Statement. This trashes all the gibberish about “no obstruction,” the mother’s milk of Fox News and White House sign-makers. The Attorney General and soon-to-be Judge Rod Rosenstein “decided” not to charge the President with obstruction and so advised the public even though they knew that he couldn’t be prosecuted (“not an option.” Statement) but lied by saying that since Mueller did not decide, they would.
  3. Even if the charge is kept under seal and hidden from public view–that too is prohibited.” Statement. Bye-bye talking heads at MSNBC and CNN predicting that the President would be the subject of a “sealed indictment,” probably on the following Friday, the Grand Jury’s “last day,” and would be tried when he left office. Illegal.
  4. “…the Constitution requires a process other than the criminal justice system to formally accuse a sitting President of wrongdoing.” Statement. Opinion. And what do you think he was saying, I ask? Damn right : impeachment.
  5. “It would be unfair to potentially accuse somebody of a crime when there can be no court resolution of an actual charge.” Statement. Report. Put that next to Barr’s drivel in his four-pager stating that there could be no intent to criminally obstruct because there was “no underlying crime” of conspiring with the Russians so he would not prosecute. Trump was not charged because he couldn’t be. Opinion.

I do not support impeachment because I think it’s politically unwise. The Dems win in 2020 on the issues. But that is the process to which Mueller clearly directs the Congress. Maybe he’s right.
