Mueller delivered an impeachment case with ribbon and a bow [View all]

*and* reminded Congress that the Constitution places the responsibility to act on it squarely on them.

Mueller team determined "not to apply an approach that could potentially result in a judgment that the President committed crimes." However, they would've said so if they had "confidence ... the President clearly did not commit obstruction of Justice" and they're not saying so.

Reading these together, Mueller is effectively saying "we concluded the President intentionally obstructed justice, but, because we can't indict him, we also can't say that explicitly in this report, and so we instead urge Congress to impeach him for it."













UPDATED TO INCLUDE:

The Mueller Report Is an Impeachment Referral
The special counsel has concluded he can neither charge nor clear the president. Only Congress can now resolve the allegations against him.


Mueller has now delivered 10 credible allegations of obstructive behavior on the part of the president. For all of Trumpís bluster, those claims are now a matter of public record, and will hang over his presidency, despite the decision of his own appointee to clear him in the matter.
