It makes you wonder how our legal system is able to find someone "not guilty", when they're presumed innocent from the start.

Here is what I take on this all:
The first is that we can not draw any sort of conclusion. 1/3 of the report is blacked out.
Mueller's entire job was to investigate. Not to pass judgement, but to investigate and put out the facts.
When it comes to the President, this is far different, as it requires congress to pick up the report look at the evidence and then decide on the action.
The Justice department is not allowed to do that,
and it will have to be the congress who decides this.
So while many are upset, the report does not say one way or the other.
And as I stated, 1/3 of the report is blacked out so we do not know all of the evidence.
And ultimately will require congress to fight this out and get the entire un redacted report to view and decide.
But personally I think that if this report showed the President as being innocent, it would have fully released with no blacked out or any redacted parts,
and congress would have had it some 3 days after the AG had it.
