MUELLER: Because the testimony of the witness goes to the heart of just about any criminal case you have.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And so, as I said back in August, here are some excerpts from Director Mueller's Congressional testimony and the questions that led to his answers, unfiltered by anyone, that highlight some of the major findings of his Report. It is on those findings that the focus should be, as the full case is developed for removing from office, either by impeachment or the upcoming election, the first President in U.S. history who, along with the Trumpublicans (tm) in Congress, presents, as a clear and present danger, the institution of a 21st century form of fascism in this nation.

And so, further, it is clear that there could easily have been a Third Article of Impeachment, or perhaps even two more, based on this testimony about the content of the "Mueller Report" alone. But as it was handled by the Master Water-Muddier William Barr and presented to the public just that one time, by the totally underwhelming witness Robert Mueller (just compare him with the series very dramatic witnesses on the L'Affaire Ukrainya), there was no way the Speaker Pelosi, a master strategist, among other things, could have had fashioned a Third Article out of the Mueller Report, as much as the evidence to support one is there.

However, during the Presidential Campaign, there is no reason why the Democratic candidate could not bring it back in. Let's indeed hope that that happens. Could make for some very interesting Debate subject-matter. That is one reason of course, that Trump is already telling us that he will not be debating, that is unless it/they appear on TrumpTV, otherwise known as the Fox"News" Channel).
