Letter to the editor: Robert Mueller gives lawyers a bad name
The last line of the Mueller report is: “while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.” A first-year law student would be tossed from school if he or she placed that sentence at the end of a paper.
Robert Mueller could not state that the president did not obstruct justice, nor could he state that thepresident did obstruct justice. Just what in the world were Mueller, and his team of a dozen or so lawyers, doing for two years? You can’t have a trial and come to “no conclusion.” My cat can do that, but then he only made it out of fourth grade. Evidently Mueller’s team failed to make it that far.
But Mueller did solve the quandary: “One must appear to say something, without actually saying anything.” And he surely did that.
What kind of an attorney can’t come to a conclusion after two years of study? An incompetent one. Or is he just part of the 99% of lawyers who give lawyers a bad name?
