Redemption Lost: Mueller Report Suggests Congress Should Pursue 'Obstruction of Justice'

Good Day World!

The eagle redacted Mueller report has finally landed with an impact that assures the shit is going to fly in Congress for months to come.

Today is subpoena day, as House Democrats attempt to get the full monty report released.

Trump and his minions have been celebrating the release as complete exoneration and a huge victory. Of course, in the real world, that's simply not true.

Mueller opened the door for the House to go after Trump's ass for obstruction of justice. 

His cabal of lowlife lawyers are gambling that even if the House indicts Trump on obstruction of justice, the Republican majority in the Senate will protect him from impeachment.

Mueller said he lacked the confidence to clear Trump of obstruction of justice but added that Congress had the authority to act.

Quotes from Mueller:

 “We concluded that Congress has authority to prohibit a president’s corrupt use of his authority in order to protect the integrity of the administration of justice.” 
And ...
“Our investigation found multiple acts by the president that were capable of exerting undue influence over law enforcement investigations, including the Russia-interference and obstruction investigations. The president engaged in a series of targeted efforts to control the investigation,” Mueller said.

The heavily redacted report also made one thing crystal clear; the Russians were out to help Trump get elected and he (and his minions) welcomed the assistance they offered.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
