Robert De Niro to Mueller: "You said that your investigation's work "speaks for itself." It doesn't.

Robert De Niro: Robert Mueller, We Need to Hear More
You said that your investigation’s work “speaks for itself.” It doesn’t.


By Robert De Niro
Mr. De Niro is an actor, producer and director.

......

..........In your news conference, you said that your investigation’s work “speaks for itself.” It doesn’t. It may speak for itself to lawyers and lawmakers who have the patience and obligation to read through the more than 400 pages of carefully chosen words and nuanced conclusions (with all due respect, as good a read as it is, you’re no Stephen King).

You’ve characterized the report as your testimony, but you wouldn’t accept that reason from anyone your office interviewed. Additional information and illumination emerge from responses to questions. I know you’re as uncomfortable in the spotlight as the president is out of it. I know you don’t want to become part of the political spectacle surrounding Russia’s crimes and your report on them. I know you will, however reluctantly, testify before Congress if called, because you respect the system and follow the rules, and I understand why you’d want to do it away from the public glare.

But the country needs to hear your voice. Your actual voice. And not just because you don’t want them to think that your actual voice sounds like Robert De Niro reading from cue cards, but because this is the report your country asked you to do, and now you must give it authority and clarity without, if I may use the term, obstruction.

1. K&R, I agree with De Niro on this. There are hundreds of rational questions regarding the report...

... that needs to be addressed.

Mueller's country needs him beyond writing a report and just saying "read it" and moving on

3. I love De Niro. He's right.

If Impeachment is a Public participation event, we need to bring it down to the level of the non-lawyer in this country.
