'The longer one spends with the report, the more disturbing a document it is -- is packed with  details, ranging from the troubling to the outright damning,  lost in the endless media discussions. In   12 pages out of hundreds Mueller makes clear that the Russian government interfered in the 2016 election with the goal of supporting Trump; that the Trump campaign sought to benefit from that interference; and that the president worked to put to an end to the office investigating the interference effort. Questions remain, but the most important question is whether this conduct should be acceptable.'

and then there is this: The key piece of information needed from Mueller of course is if not for the OLC opinion blocking the DOJ from indicting a sitting White House Resident, would he have indicted Trump? Michael Wolff is reporting in his upcoming book that Mueller had a 3 count obstruction indictment for Trump ready to go in his desk for a year,before he ultimately decided to shelve it, although other members of his team say that isn't true.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) acknowledged Wednesday morning that he and the Department of Justice have reached a temporary accordas the DOJ agrees to provide counterintelligence information, and he cancelled a meeting to recommend that Attorney General William Barr be held in contempt."

"However, Schiff was quick to add, the temporary cooperation has not made him forget that he still wants Special Counsel Robert Mueller to testify."

"This, I should also mention however, is no substitute in any way, shape or form for the appearance of Bob Mueller before our committee and the Judiciary Committee," he told reporters. "It's no substitute for the appearance of Don McGahn and the other witnesses that have been subpoenaed to come into committee, but we are pleased that we are finally going to start receiving documents that we are entitled to from the Department of Justice."

The Guardianreportsthat Wolff's upcoming book will claim that Mueller "drew up a three-count obstruction of justice indictment against Donald Trump before deciding to shelve it." olff claims that his knowledge of this supposed draft indictment is "based on internal documents given to me by sources close to the Office of the Special Counsel."

Step by step we are moving to a point where Mueller will likely testify before Congress but not before cameras,although he will be providing a written opening statement which should be interesting if it details exactly why he sent two letters complaining about Bill Barr "essential conclusions letter and also called him about it.

In addition to this the House Intelligence committee has reached an agreement that allows them to see all of the redacted portions of the Mueller report except those portions which involve the Federal Grand Jury without having to file charges of contempt of Congress against Attorney General Bill Barr.

1 Disturbing Detail You May Have Missed in the Mueller Report.

Russia did not have any interest to interfere in the election. And Trump's policy has helped the rich, not Russia. You people have been played to attack Trump wrongfully and this gave Trump more power to help the rich. It was a masterful deception and now you cannot admit you have been fooled - Mark Twain.

Yes, there is a lot of reasons to investigate Trump but not for cooperation with Russia. But Mueller did not get a job to do anything else:-)

Too bad the investigation didn't center around ISRAEL's manipulations in so many of our 'elections'. It would have been a much more damning report, but THAT is not a subject available for discussion in the U.S. of (on) America.

Mueller can indict anyone he wants to because indictments do not require evidence. He can make any accusation he wants to because he has left town without providing an ounce of proof. For the New York Times to accept his report at face value without bothering to fact check it is typical of what that disgraceful newspaper has become. a fat mouthpiece for Israel and the CIA.

...and why OEN should ever link an article from the NY Times boggles my mind.
