The biggest lesson from the Mueller probe? It's about character. John Podesta

Beyond the presidentís well-practiced braggadocio, what have we actually learned from Robert S. Mueller IIIís 674-day investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election and the presidentís conduct and approach to national security once in office?

Well, we know that Russiaís campaign to help elect Donald Trump was a multimillion-dollar sophisticated campaign directed by the Kremlin and carried out by, among others, senior members of Russian military intelligence. Mueller indicted 26 Russian nationals and three Russian entities in that effort.We know that the Trump campaign and transition team were in contact with Russia-linked operatives more than 100 times and had at least 28 meetings.

We know that in July 2016, candidate Trump called on the Russians to continue to break U.S. law and, as uncovered by Mueller, we now know that they promptly did. Notwithstanding those facts, Mueller concluded that he could not prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the Trump campaign and the Russians engaged in a criminal conspiracy. The public must await the release of the full report to understand Muellerís reasoning on why the many contacts and the encouragement still fell short of criminal conspiracy.

Still, the biggest immediate lesson people can take away from this investigation is about the character of the two protagonists. Mueller conducted his service to the American public with the highest level of nonpartisan professionalism, integrity, respect for the rule of law and concern for our countryís national security. And then there is Trump. The American people would do well to remember the difference if Trumpís name is on the ballot in 2020.

2. Mueller didn't even interview Trump face to face. It was a white wash from the beginning

Let the House continue to investigate. We need to continue to be ready for 2020.

3. Mueller must testify before Congress if we stand any chance of learning the truth.

4. The biggest lesson is that DOJ protects the president instead of protecting the law.

5. If only Podesta hadn't fallen for some scam email

and given up his password, we might have President Clinton right now.
