I took some notes as Mueller gave his brief statement:
Muller is leaving the justice department to return to private practice.
"It was critical to obtain full and accurate information from
every person we investigated."
"Report has two parts First volume details numerous efforts
by Russia to influence the election. Conclusion there was insufficient evidence
to support broader conspiracy."
"If we had confidence the president clearly did not commit a
crime we would have said so."
"Charging the president with a crime was not an option we
"Constitution requires a process other than the criminal
justice system to formally accuse the president."
"That report is my testimony. I would not provide any
"The attempts by Russia to influence the elections deserves the attention of every American."
My take: Mueller made it clear he was not legally able to prosecute Trump, and another process is required. That process is impeachment. That is the message that screams from between the lines. And it's what Republican Justin Amash, making the call bipartisan says.
I just called my congressional representative-- Brian Fitzpatrick-- who represents a swing district and told him it is time to join Amash in calling for opening an impeachment investigation. Even if the Senate will not convict, it is the duty of the House to investigate. Failure to do so abrogates their responsibility to the constitution and to voters.
