Robert Mueller will appear before Congress on July 24th to answer questions regarding the Russia probe his team took 22-months to undertake & complete.
After all is said and done it really boils down to 3 questions to Mueller that will definitively put the whole Russia-Gate affair back on track & with the proper clarity restored as to what the Mueller Report actually stands for.
Question No. 1: Mr. Mueller, Attorney General William Barr said that your report shows that there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and any Russians. Is that true?
Answer: No, that's actually not correct. The correct answer would be there were over 100 contacts between the Trump campaign and Russians.
Question No. 2: Mr. Mueller, Attorney General William Barr said that your report shows that there was no obstruction? Is that true? Would that be an accurate appraisal of your report.
Answer: That statement would not be an accurate appraisal/account of the report. There are 10 listed instances of obstructive behavior in volume 2 of the report.
Question No. 3: Mr. Mueller, Attorney General William Barr said that the report exonerates the President. Does it?
Answer: The report CONCLUSION - on page 394 of the report - says: ". . . . . . if we had confidence after a thorough investigation of the facts that the President clearly did not commit obstruction of justice, we would so state. Based on the facts and the applicable legal standards, we are unable to reach that judgment. Accordingly, while this report does not conclude that President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.
Ladies & Gentlemen of the Jury - this is not a bill of health for the Dumpster! As Mueller made crystal clear in his brief flash press conference in May, this matter can only be handled by Congress from
