Reading Vol. II of the Mueller report right now. I'm actually impressed with Jeff Sessions, Don McGahn, and even Corey Lewandowski. All three were asked repeatedly by Trump to do things unethical and borderline illegal, and they refused. It cost all of them. McGahn especially, he really held strong even with Trump perpetually breathing down his neck.
I glanced through the report I'm happy to see it's not as thoroughly redacted as I expected. So in my quick glance I get the attitude of, yep, he did some shady sh!t, but being a lawyer and not a judge I'm not going to say if it was wrong and it's not my place to press charges. I'll let congress do that.
Yea the report certainly doesn't exonerate him. It really makes him look pretty crazy. It also makes the people around him look weak (except that they protected him by not actually doing what he asked of them). But being mean and crazy isn't illegal.
I hope the D's will move on, but from the early reporting, it doesn't look like that will happen. With 18 months until an election, they should probably just focus on that. Use the damn report in how you run against him, but we have to move on.
I will say that no one who is innocent says "This is the end of my Presidency" when you find out they are looking into you.
