Quoted @NewYorker

What the Mueller report portrays, in numbing legalese and revealing footnotes, is a breathtaking culture of lying and impunity, distrust and double-dealing. And Donald Trump is its greatest beneficiary. http://nyer.cm/OEGPLFp

The argument that Trump's voters have "priced in" his horrific character is too often used as an excuse to brush past his bad acts or refuse to truly consider what they mean -- for his presidency and for our nation.

To those reporters who worked with DC Leaks and Guccifer 2.0, congratulations on being used as a tool of a Russian military intelligence attack on our country.

If there is a 'groundswell" of support from Dem grassroots for impeachment in the wake of the Mueller report, where/how will we see it? Haven't heard it from those who are in Dem leadership.

Well, Yuval Levin vindicated again. https://www.nationalreview.com/corner/the-barr-letter-interlude/ …. The report that compiles and lays out the facts is always more powerful than you expect, even when you feel like you know all the previously reported details.

"The report illustrates three features of this presidency that have undermined Trump’s effectiveness. The first is that this presidency is marinated in lies."

7) There is a risk for Democrats if they overplay their hand with Mueller rpt. That’s why Republicans are more than happy to lump all Democrats together. GOPers WANT Democrats to attack the President..because it could backfire on Democrats.

Of course, the Mueller Report establishes Trump's rather unique badness, but as I note in the essay, badness has no bearing on broader questions of legitimacy. In short, badness and legitimacy should be treated separately in how we assess this presidency: https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2019/04/muellers-no-collusion-conclusion-good-thing/586909/ …

This part of the Mueller Report seems relevant, for example: "Unlike cases in which a subject engages in obstruction of justice... the evidence we obtained did not establish that the President was involved in an underlying crime related to Russian election interference"

If you missed it, my essay in @TheAtlantic on how American democracy *didn't* die—something worth reemphasizing in light of the #MuellerReport's release:

Quoted @MattMackowiak

Except the part about how he wasn’t indicted. https://twitter.com/adamparkhomenko/status/1118937424753827842 …

Except Mueller writes that he specifically accepts the OLC guidance that a sitting president can’t be indicted and explains that’s why he would not reach a conclusion even about whether the president’s behavior justified indictment.
