Former FBI Director Bob Mueller was assigned as Special Counsel, to investigate if/how Russia interfered in our 2016 Presidential election process. And, whether or not Donald Trump's campaign personnel, or he himself, colluded/conspired with Russia, to affect the election outcome.
The U.S. News Media and Democrats somehow assumed that Bob Mueller was also investigating President Trump for "Obstructing Justice" by firing FBI Director James Comey.
Well, here we are 17 months after the Special Counsel investigation started, and it appears that Bob Mueller never was investigating if President Trump "obstructed justice" in any way, shape, or form.
Law Professor Jonathan Turley then proceeds to lay out evidence that explains why Bob Mueller never was investigating the President for Obstructing Justice.
Washington is in another frenzy over the disclosure that President Trump’s lawyers are preparing answers to written questions from special counsel Robert Mueller. Observers are speculating on the meaning of this move, as anticipation grows for the investigation’s culmination.
If the suspense is killing you, a bigger surprise may await.
The most significant aspect of this story may be what it did not contain: questions about obstruction. Mueller is asking about Russian collusion, rather than the driving force behind his appointment after the firing of former FBI director James Comey. Indeed, ample reasons exist to question whether there is an obstruction charge in the making — the focus of so much media attention since Comey was ignobly dispatched on May 10, 2017.

Most of the Mainstream Media, and Democrats in general, have pretty much concluded that President Trump did NOT collude with Russia to affect the 2016 election. There is no tangible evidence that he did, and the President himself has declared many times, "There was no collusion!".
One can only imagine how Democrat politicians, Liberal Media, and Liberal "experts" will react, when Bob Mueller closes his investigation, and issues a report that clears President Donald Trump of Conspiring with Russia, and Obstruction of Justice.
it behooves any one being investigated to say as little as possible that could in theory be used against them at a later time and even if the scotus went along with it he could always just plead the 5th and make them only be able to use publicly available info
Trump’s lawyers and Mueller’s investigators have been negotiating terms for a possible interview with the president for months. In July, Trump’s legal team said it was open to Trump answering questions about collusion with Russia, but not about obstruction. There had been speculation that they could conceivably be open to Trump answering obstruction questions, but only in written form. Trump has said he’s eager to talk to investigators, but Trump’s lawyers are said to worry that obstruction questions could become a “perjury trap” that could open the president to impeachment if he does not tell the truth. Last month, Giuliani said Trump would not sit for an interview after Sept. 1, a deadline which has come and gone. Mueller could also subpoena Trump, which would set up an epic legal showdown likely headed for the U.S. Supreme Court.
Harvard Law's Jack Goldsmith raises the possibility that the seeming lack of recusal by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in the Mueller Russia investigation might suggest that there's not the obstruction investigation that folks assume (speculation fueled further by a Michael Schmidt opus in The New York Times last week). “One possibility is that Rosenstein has no conflict because Mueller is not actually investigating the president for obstruction. It has been widely reported for months in multiple reputable outlets that Mueller is conducting such an investigation. Schmidt’s story implies that he is, and reports that Mueller has evidence in his possession that appears relevant only to an obstruction investigation.”

Well, that's why Mueller is indeed investigating him for Obstruction, amongst other things. I mean, you all can sit on the internet all day and decide what Mueller is and isn't investigating Trump for but none of you are apart of his team of investigators and have no clue what's actually going on.
I can't wait for it all to be over so the arm chair speculation can finally stop.
Special counsel Robert Mueller is reviewing President Trump’s tweets as he pursues an investigation into whether the president obstructed justice, The New York Times reported Thursday.

Bob Mueller's Russian Collusion/Obstruction report is ready. But he will not release it until after the Mid-Term Elections.
If there is ANYTHING Anti-Trump, you just know it will LEAK, BEFORE the mid-terms.
