12. doesn't want the political scrum

I think some of this (maybe a lot of this) is that Mueller doesn't WANT the political spotlight. His position is that the legislative branch is entitled to the information (or as much of it as is possible) .. and from there it's their ball to carry. But wall to wall TV coverage and political theater .. just not his shtick, and perhaps in his mind just not necessary. Whether, in the end, he gets his druthers on this (and other) points still remains to be seen. Mueller is hardly a neophyte in these waters. And it DOES seem like he was offended by Barr's attempt to bury the report. In the end I think he will end up doing what he thinks is required (from his position as Special Counsel). But I think the guy just doesn't want to see himself as a player in the political scrum. And, again .. quite possibly doesn't see it as the PROPER place for his position. "I do the investigation .. you do the prosecution .. or not."
