I think Mueller is tired of all the smoke and mirrors. It's a rather simple thing to understand: the sitting President, any sitting President, cannot
be charged under criminal law. Doing so would break the separation of powers.
Imagine this scenario: a President decides he wants a particular piece of legislation passed. For the sake of argument, let's say it outlawed blue
cakes. The Congress doesn't want to pass it. So the President can, using he FBI and DoJ, effectively harass the members of Congress who are against
outlawing blue cakes. Since the DC police are pretty close friends with the FBI/DoJ, they can be followed, spied on, ticketed every time they jaywalk,
traffic stopped and ticketed for going 2 mph over the limit, stopped and searched every time they stick their noses out of their homes... and that
would be illegal. By the same token, say Congress wants to outlaw blue cakes, but the President doesn't... neither can Congress attack the President
without just cause.
But in this case, that is exactly what they are doing.
Mueller basically said what was in his report. It appears to me that he did this whole speech for one reason and one reason only: to explain to
Congress that if they want the President indicted, it's not his job... it's not the DoJ's job... it's the House of Representative's job. In plain
simple terms: "Get off your collective rears and do something besides bother me!"
He was hired top provide proof that Trump conspired to throw the election and that Trump tried to obstruct the investigation. Had he done so, there
would have been an impeachment vote the same day the report was released. He didn't provide enough proof, though, so the House is wallowing around
like a pig in slop trying to figure out what to do.
They can charge the President by impeaching him... which means the matter will go to the Senate, where cooler heads prevail. Trump can be impeached,
but without some evidence, he will not be removed from office. Shades of Bill Clinton! Anyone remember what happened to the GOP Congress when they did
it to him?
Or, they can drop it. Insufficient evidence. Let it go.
The one thing they cannot do, per the Constitution, is continue endless investigations into the sitting President over political reasons. That is
exactly what they are trying to do, though, and the people are seeing it. I don't care what someone thinks of Donald Trump... if you support this
continual investigative nonsense, you are supporting the police hounding you forever should you ever be accused of anything.
That's not a country I want to live in. That is Iran... Myanmar... Pakistan... you want to live like that, move there.
This was nothing more than Mueller explaining that to the children presently running the US House of Representatives.
