The trashing of Mueller is going to get bad.

Now they are going after his work and him personally.

Truth has no value any more. It is just who can outplay who. No morality. Just greed and the high from playing the game.

I think Mueller can take care of himself. He has had high pressure jobs in law and law enforcement all his life.

2. I don't give a flying fuck.

He has allowed this charade to continue !!!

He won't defend this country against the illegalities of the Trump party and the republican party.

He won't stand up to Barr.

If he clams up on the 17th he deserves everything coming his way.

5. I totally agree with you, SK!

One of the bigger disappointments in history is this guy - on many levels. ANY other prosecutor would have been chomping at the bit to correct Barr's criminal mischaracterization - and try to enlighten the American public, thereby saving our democracy. But not button-lipped Bob! He's more concerned with preserving his reputation of not getting political.

6. Agree.

What good is a reputation if by not speaking out your country is destroyed ???

11. Exactly, he could have spoken out at any time, but did not. His report let trump off the hook for

allowing Russians and others to interfere with the election.

He has a chance to repent next week. Not counting on him, though.

3. He's a big boy

If he hasn't figured out by now what vile, corrupt, degenerate liars are Trump & Barr, he deserves to be trashed.

15. Here are some reasons Mueller doesn't want to testify before Congress:

Robert Mueller is a registered Republican. President George W. Bush nominated Mueller for the position of FBI director on July 5, 2001.

4. I hope that he will simply decide that given the circumstances

he needs to talk.

I fear (expect) that the only answer he'll give is "it is in my report"....which they can't see a large portion of because it is redacted.

7. Mueller has to set his priorities if he wants to be a man of principles;

it has to be either Trump and Barr or truth and country

8. I think Mueller will answer all questions by referring to his report

I think everyone is going to be very disappointed when he says, "I answered this question in my report, page..." and refuses to add anything beyond what is written in the report.

12. Actually, what is in the report is enough evidence for impeachment and criminal prosecution

many times over. Intelligence must answer as to what happened to any evidence 36 embedded
FBI agents found.

Mueller’s investigation appears to have followed some money trails, but findings not a part of the report.

Saving the country, fighting Trump and Republicans, was not Mueller’s assignment.

The House is well prepared to investigate financial crimes (doing so now) and where Trump’s
money and oligarch and Russian mob money mixes FBI must enter the frame. Undoubtedly they have been on this as they have been fighting Russian organized crime for some time—though Trump got rid
of key fighters.

That Mueller’s testimony about the report will likely give it credible legs seems to be of little import
to those who want Mueller to be some crusader or Deep Throat.

Vouching for his work, standing up to Republicans who would discredit it, simply by being honest and
factual puts a lie to the “witch hunt” claim, and will verify instances of obstruction and collusion, regardless of Mueller not charging the one, and not considering the second.

The public will hear about both whether Mueller reads the pages or the questioner does. And yes, he will be asked about his letter to Barr.

Listen, this is OUR democracy and WE have to fight for it. All Mueller needs to do is to account for the report’s findings. We, the public, won’t be filled in on other investigations or grand jury proceedings unless through leaks.

9. He deserves it. He protected them, he let Uday and others off the hook.

There are multiple layers of crimes he dances around in his report. He will need to talk to congress in a very clear and forthright manner.

10. He may decide not to show up at all. If so, he'll be backed by attorney general barr....

purported to be an admirable man too.

14. I know. I don't feel that way.

Mueller did the job he was hired to do. He was not the one who claimed to be the country's savior. People just laid that trip on him.

My guess is that he will simply follow the letter if the law. Wherever that must go.

But I do think he will be able to handle these yahoos that are now trying to destroy him and his report. But he is a facts, just the facts kind of guy.

My faith in humanity is at rather a low ebb these days.

17. That, and he gave Congress everything they needed to proceed with their own investigations...

He did his job, and now they have to do theirs. The fact that he is speaking in open session is bonus -- I do hope the heads of the committees will coordinate things so the GOP doesn't go into abusive grandstanding, and so Dems stay on message.
