House Democrats can officially stop wasting time on Mueller

His work is done.

If you believe Pelosi just wants to run out the clock on impeachment, which I do, heís saying donít waste your time on me, what I have to say is in the report, PLUS, in case you didnít understand what we said in writing: ďIf we had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so.Ē

So what we have here is a report that was delivered in late March, followed by two months of Democratic leadership saying we need to hear from Mueller and a statement today that basically amounts to

a) no you donít, what I have to say is in the report,

b) we did not exonerate the President on obstruction; if there was no crime we would have said so and

c) the Constitution requires a process other than through the criminal justice system to find a president guilty of a crime.

Thatís called impeachment. Your move, Speaker Pelosi.

1. Yep. What concerns me is that Barr said the same thing on 3/24/2019, and that did not cause the

House to begin Impeachment in earnest. Not sure what Mueller saying it again does, but maybe some folks will take notice.

2. Agreed 1000%

It now becomes more risky to subpoena Mueller, given his signaling that the guide to what's impeachable is already in the report.

Public opinion is one our side now! Waiting for another smoking gun before moving forward may backfire.

It's on - we either constitutional processes to address a rogue presidency or face the graver consequences of inaction.

3. or will all these

committees keep on investigating until the election next year, and leave it up to the electorate. By then who even knows what kind of government/country we will have.

They need to get the inquiry moving.

4. Mueller needs to testify before congress you can't make an iron clad case without the investigator

5. His report is the testimony

Heís not saying he wonít do it, but he would not add anything to what has been written.

6. I agree with De Niro, no it's not. Mueller DID say he would not give information to congress...

... near the end of his presser multiple times and was very clear at telling congress to pound sand.

There are hundreds of rational questions about the report that need to be answered RIGHT NOW if we're still vulnerable.

I'm not totally done with Mueller but I'm damn close.

9. We have more than enough facts in the report that we can act on

If we choose to act. Flogging Mueller for more at this point smacks of a delaying tactic more than anything else.

10. Agreed, we can act without Mueller right now but we still need all the facts and we can get some of

... those through Mueller.

12. Congress doesn't need Mueller's testimony since the evidence is all in his report

But many people think the public needs to hear it

Two different things

13. This is false, all the evidence regarding Mueller's report is NOT in the report. There are

... hundreds of questions surrounding the report that need to be answered that the report gives no clue of.

People who've read the report fully have rational questions about process's etc that Mueller can answer

7. I strongly disagree with this

People will watch the movie or TV show, but not read the book.

Just having Mueller on the stand reading excerpts from the report will reach an audience probably 100 times bigger than the audience that read the report or listened to the audiobook.

8. What if it's proven that tRUMP ordered BARR to stop Mueller? (OBSTRUCTION!)

When the House starts the inquires it's possible this will be discovered. The rethugs plan is to STRETCH this out but time will run out on them i feel. Wonder if Mueller will testify as to HOW this all ended? I almost feel we should start with BARR! WE WILL WIN THIS!

11. Yup. My summary of his speech "Hey, Congress, do your fucking job."

It was very clear.
