The explosion that was to be Mueller’s testimony did not occur. More of a firecracker, less than a bomb.
My random thoughts.
Trump will not be impeached. Yesterday failed to change public opinion sufficiently.
The failure lies with Mueller. I respect the man and his patriotic history. However, he was not the person for this job. One reason his age. He may have been sharp 2 years ago. However yesterday his 74 years were obvious. He is old and tired. His time has passed.
I believe such is the reason he did not want to testify beyond his Report. He was aware of his diminished capabilities.
True, the necessary information to impeach is in the Report. In limited fashion only. Mueller failed to take the final step and emphatically state without reservation and without the shackles of Department of Justice policy what he thought.
His testimony failed to mobilize the Nation to impeach.
Democratic questioning as good as possible. I was impressed. Not the usual ranting and raving. The questioning by both Committees was well planned. The Democrats were prepared.
Contrasted with the Republicans who failed to deviate from form. Accusatory. Blamed Mueller for everything short of abolishing Christmas. Trump wannabes.
Bottom line. Mueller’s Report and testimony helps the Democrats a bit. In a close election might be the deciding factor.
The Justice Department’s policy of not indicting a sitting President for a federal crime should be removed from Justice’s role of non-permissible actions. It is as helpful to democratic governing as the Electoral College.
The war goes on. Democrats if wise will immediately go to everyday issues and stress them. Medicare for all, college debt, inhumanity at the border, etc. Those are the issues that will decide the winner in the next Presidential election.
The sun rose this morning. It will rise every morning. Life goes on. Enjoy your day!
