Letter to the editor: Robert Mueller should say something
We have now witnessed both the Trumpwash and the Hirono megaslander approaches.
But I can’t help but place the blame for all this sturm und drang on … Robert Mueller. The guy had unlimited resources. And after all that (and setting aside that he probably knew no collusion well before the midterms, but said nothing, and might, possibly, maybe, have cost the Republicans the House), he absolutely should have made a judgment on obstruction. He and his team had the responsibility to say either, “Troubling stuff but no obstruction,” or the opposite, “Troubling stuff rising to the level of obstruction of justice.” By not saying one way or the other he guaranteed that the country, the citizens, the normal people would remain divided.
Politically, it would have made no difference. If he had said, “Trump is St. Peter. Did zero wrong. What a guy!! My man!” the Democrats, MSNBC, CNN and the rest of the mainstream media would have said, “Oh, NO!!!! The guy is dirty as hell! Mueller is a partisan, political hack. IMPEACH!!!” And if he had said, “Trump is slime, obstructed justice, he is Putin’s lapdog, does his bidding with enthusiasm and colluded in astounding ways,” the Republicans and Fox would have said, “Mueller is a partisan, anti-Trump, political hack! Out to get him from the beginning. WITCH HUNT!!!”
