Simply Put

Josh Marshall:

The simple takeaway from the Mueller Report is the President betrayed his country and spent two years lying and breaking the law to try to hide that fact. He should resign and be tried for his crimes.

It won’t happen.  But it should.

  1. I’m feeling more and more disappointed by the Mueller report, partly because I always knew people were putting too much stock in it, but also because (1) if you start from the presumption, based on the 20-year-old OLC opinion, that you can’t indict a sitting president, then what’s the point? You either clear him or you can’t do anything anyway. And (2) why weren’t the kids interviewed, and particularly Don Jr. after his “I love it” e-mail?

    • My take is that Mueller outlined a path for Congress to walk in the impeachment process. I think he thought that from what he learned his hands were tied in regard to an indictment. He passed on criminal behavior to the Southern District of New York that was outside his purview – Russian interference in the election that brought us Trump. Now the Democrats are dithering about what to do next with Pellosi insisting the best way to get rid of Trump is to defeat him in next year’s election. Others believe the impeachment process is what the House is obliged to start even if the Senate will never go along with that – that it’s the moral thing to do. When Trump leaves office and we hope next year before the statute of limitations runs out, he’ll be handcuffed and frog marched before a judge in NYC. So patience . . . .
