My take on Muellers speech!

It's what he didn't say that i like! (He didn't say tRUMP is innocent) NOW the part i'm confused with tho is this. I really thought that the constitution we have is NOT clear on whether a sitting president can be indicted!! I believe he's going by DOJ POLICY (ONLY) here! His hands are very TIED! (He CANNOT go against policy!) NOW what do we do? I really think he wants Congress to do their job, but how if the RETHUGS in the senate refuse? Timing will be very important i believe in WHEN the House impeaches! Maybe the House should begin with calling in Muellers team one at a time to testify? No easy answer here that's for sure!! BUT election 2020 will be the MOST IMPORTANT of our lifetime!! I still say Mueller is a good guy.

It's up to us to force Congress to carry out the impeachment process. No waiting for a savior, no expecting any one person to take down Trump.

Let's go Americans!

Agree but wonder how restricted they are in what they say.
What confidentiality restraints do they operate under?

and secure our most fundamental right. FAIR AND FREE ELECTIONS. ONE MAN, ONE VOTE.
The prosecutors should all be asked to talk about their parts. Gotta move fast now bc if they say no, it has to go through the courts. Just an opinion.
We need an unredacted report within 24 hours. Mueller said it's all in the report. Well, we need to see the whole report. It was written to be released. Not redacted. It's time. Let's go!

has been a colossal, cosmic waste. Each side hears what it wants to hear. Trump didn't let half an hour go by before tweeting his "innocence" again. After this long national nightmare, we're exactly nowhere.

Pay attention, Americans! (His last piece of the statement)

And I will close by reiterating the central allegation of our indictments that there were multiple, systematic efforts to interference in our election. That allegation deserves the attention of every American. Thank you.


My hands are tied, yours are not!

And second, the opinion says that the constitution requires a process other than the criminal justice system to formally accuse a sitting president of wrong doing.


Could not be clearer.

Translation: "I gave you everything in writing. Congress, do your job." Also...

"I am not running it through a baby-food mill for you. Learn to chew."

Finally: "Americans and American media, I am not your circus monkey. This is not a circus, this is Real Life. You have everything. Learn to read. Learn to think."

Works for me.
