Mueller’s Failure


I can’t escape the feeling that Robert Mueller ultimately failed to do his job.

Yes, he conducted a thorough, fair investigation of President Trump and Trump’s 2016 campaign. But when that investigation was over, Mueller ducked the tough decisions. He refused to clear Trump in the areas where no evidence implicated him in a crime, and Mueller refused to conclude that Trump had broken the law when the evidence clearly indicated he had.

Instead, Mueller tossed the hard decisions to Congress — a Congress rived by partisanship, where fact-based, widely accepted conclusions are all but impossible.

I imagine that Mueller may not mind the criticism he has received since issuing his report. It has come from both the political left and right, which can make his critics appear partisan and him appear interested only in the truth. Unfortunately, he didn’t help the American people get nearly as close to the truth as he could have.

None of us know how this will all play out so let's make a deal. Let’s get up to speed on the issues, establish some facts, take action and watch what happens together . . .
