Yep-just thought a number would give us how many actual readers there were. I am sure many grab the volume and go no way-450 something pages and they are intimidated.
I was happy to read it and consider it a blessing for our democracy. However; I see tonight that the Trump administration is trying to limit Mueller's testimony-anyone else object to that.

What about all you "free speechers"? Not so much?

How so?
There is clearly an attempt being made to prevent Mueller from testifying in full.

Only those who want to prevent the truth from being spoken would be in favor of that.

Looks like Mueller sought guidance from the DOJ on what he could say in front of the House and they advised him to stick to his report which seems reasonable.

I can see the headlines on CNN: Trump's DOJ prevents Muller from exposing the facts in the Report.

Uhh, ok.


Why does the mighty Mueller need a sidekick today? Hilarious.

Schiff, burning the midnight oil.

He sent Mueller a letter late yesterday asking for him to reject Justices recommendations that he stick to the report. The recommendations that Mueller personally asked for.

Good way to start (covering certain things up which will make him look bad).

What a complete waste of time. I'm in the "nothing is off-limits, let's discuss everything" camp. Complete open disclosure with no limitations regarding the investigation, what triggered it, and the report.

Obviously that won't happen. This whole show serves only one purpose - to give the dems and MSM a few sound bites to play for a couple of days. No one is actually interested in the truth, least of all Mueller.

As much as I wish Mueller could talk about everything, I believe even the DOJ letter instructed him that he could only stick to the four corners of his report.

Which I don't agree with. My understanding is that Mueller himself asked for this restriction. If so, why? Well, it's obvious - he doesn't want to answer certain questions which will make him and the entire investigation look bad, as well as destroy the narrative.

And why would Barr do something to help Mueller protect "the narrative"?

As to the FISA stuff and the Steele dossier - that's the IG's sandbox, isn't it?

I don't subscribe to the theory floating around out there that the origin of the investigation is some nefarious deep state conspiracy against Trump.

With that said, I know there are two investigations into this and I am glad that there are not people yelling WITCH HUNT and constantly dragging the investigators through the mud almost every day like there were with the Mueller investigation, all of which were completely unwarranted and unjust. I am willing to sit back and see what comes of these two investigations. Hopefully they will be conducted with the same utmost professionalism.

Now we live in a world where the dems seem to ask measured, mature questions and the GOP (especially Collins, so far) come off as mad dog, making accusations against Mueller without letting him respond.

It's a sad state of affairs.
