Mueller: Volume II, Section III.B.

If you memorize nothing else from the Mueller Report, try out these 24 words on the "no-obstruction" bleaters:

"We concluded that Congress can validly regulate the President's exercise of official duties to prohibit actions motivated by a corrupt intent to obstruct justice." Vol. II, page 169.

Then, of course, all the details where Twitler obstructed justice 10 times.

Later, we get the famous "it also does not exonerate him" line. Put that with the above sentence, and it's pretty fucking simple, even to a mouth-breathing Trumpist, though the Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level Readability scale puts it at 12.69, so that could be a problem.

Clearly stated: "Drumpf is not above the law, he appears to have obstructed justice, and Congress can do something about it."

If Mueller would simply state those words in front of a camera, we could flip the entire conversation.

2. If a Mueller TV appearance would 'flip the entire conversation', it would be a

done Mueller deal. The Speaker is not 'timid', Mueller is not vain, that is not the problem at all [no matter what surface thinkers claim]. The problem is that it will almosst certainly, in the view of the Committee Chairman, Pelosi and Mueller [ who are far ahead of any of us here], will take much more than that to 'flip the conversation'.

5. THANKS!

I've never been called a "surface thinker" before. Sounds like a highway worker. Thanks for the compliment.

3. I don't think Mueller wants to be seen as the person who "flipped" political history. If he

testifies, he is going to try to avoid giving fodder to either side. And he is not going to want his role
to be magnified or distorted via the medium of television.

4. Mueller needs to tell us if Barr had him "wrap it up"

and what else Barr told him to write. Mueller doesn't want to be political so he'd better answer without any GOP influence and in public. The majority of Americans want to hear from him and McGahn. Are they going to act like the GOP or like Americans?
