Democrats in Congress and talking heads on television will be consumed in the coming weeks by whether the evidence in the Mueller report, especially of obstruction of justice, merits impeachment.
In addition, the question of "wink-wink" cooperation with Russia still looms. Mueller's quote of Trump, when first learning a special counsel had been appointed -- "Oh my God. This is terrible. This is the end of my presidency. I'm f*cked" -- has already become a national tagline. Why, Americans wonder, would Trump be "f*cked" if he hadn't done something so awful as to cause its revelation to "f*ck" him?
We'll also have Mueller's own testimony before Congress, and Congress's own investigations of Trump.
But let's be real. Trump will not be removed by impeachment. No president has been. With a Republican Senate controlled by the most irresponsible political hack ever to be majority leader, the chances are nil.
Which means Trump will have to be removed the old-fashioned way by voters in an election 19 months away.
The practical question, then, is whether the Mueller report and all that surrounds it will affect that election.
Most Americans already hold a low opinion of Trump. He's the only president in Gallup polling history never to have earned the support of majority for a single day of his term.
Yet Mueller's report probably won't move any of the 40 percent who have held tight to Trump regardless.
So how to reach the 11 percent or 12 percent who may decide the outcome?
Reveal his moral loathsomeness.
Democrats and progressives tend to shy away from morality, given how right-wing evangelicals have used it against abortion, contraceptives and equal marriage rights.
But that's to ignore Americans' deep sense of right and wrong. Character counts, and presidential character counts most of all.
Even though Mueller apparently doesn't believe a sitting president can be indicted, he provides a devastating indictment of Trump's character.
Trump is revealed as a chronic liar. He claimed he never asked for loyalty from FBI director James Comey. Mueller finds he did. Trump claimed he never asked Comey to let the "Michael Flynn matter go." Mueller finds he did. Trump claimed he never pushed the White House counsel Don McGahn to fire Mueller. Mueller finds he did. Trump even lied about inviting Comey to dinner, claiming falsely, in public, that Comey requested it.
