Democrats in Congress tried in vain to get Robert Mueller to say the word “impeachment.” Despite their efforts, he would not say that word. But it is not his job to impeach the president. Mueller’s job was to document the facts and prosecute those he could. But the power of impeachment lies with the House of Representatives. For some reason, they want Mueller to do their job for them.
Mueller laid out the facts. He stated that the investigation was not a “hoax” or a “witch hunt.” He stated that he has not “exonerated” President Trump, and the statement that there was “No obstruction, no collusion, total exoneration” was not true. In fact, the Russians had attacked our election in “widespread and sweeping fashion” and they continue to attack us “even as we sit here” and would continue into the next election. He stated that Trump welcomed that interference, which he said was a crime. He documented over 100 contacts between Russia and the Trump campaign. He stated that campaign personnel had lied about those contacts. The campaign manager, Manafort, lied. The deputy campaign manager, Gates, lied. Campaign adviser Papadopoulos lied. National security adviser Flynn lied. The president’s son lied. President Trump, when providing his written answers, lied.
Mueller has laid out 10 cases of obstruction of justice. He stated that the obstruction was effective and prevented him from fully gathering all the facts.
Mueller has done his job. It is now time for the House of Representatives to do their job.
