Mueller wants Congress to do its goddamn job. (Image via video still)
“If we had confidence that the President had not committed a crime,
we would have said so.” — Robert Mueller
Mueller's short speech was clearly to tell everyone he had no choice but NOT to indict Trump, and that if Congress wants to do that, that's up to them.
Huge pressure on Pelosi now.
He also underscored the fact that Russia tried (and succeeded!) to disrupt our elections by damaging a presidential candidate — Hillary Clinton.
Sen. Kamala Harris (D-California) has the right takeaway:
I will say what I think that it’s a fair inference that Bob Mueller was essentially referring impeachment to the United States Congress.
What Robert Mueller basically did was return an impeachment referral. Now it is up to Congress to hold this president accountable.— Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) May 29, 2019
We need to start impeachment proceedings. It's our constitutional obligation.
