Reich on Mueller's press conference
From this FB post:
"In an astounding and unexpected news conference at the Justice Department this morning, Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel, came as close as ever to calling on Congress to conduct an impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump. He said:
1. “If we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so."
2. He noted that while Justice Department policy prohibits charging a sitting president with a crime, the Constitution provides for another process — a clear reference to the ability of Congress to impeach.
3. He stressed that Russia’s systematic effort to interfere with the 2016 presidential election “deserves the attention of every American.”
4. He said he would not testify before Congress because his report was "his testimony."
Mueller's statement puts increasing pressure on House Democrats (the Republicans are Trump zombies) to begin an impeachment inquiry. I believe they must."
