trump said bob mueller should not testify. no re-do for the dem. there is a mixed message here. the president said over and over the mueller report clears him. his attorney general said the mueller report clears him. why wouldn't he want mueller to speak to congress? it says specifically it's not an exoneration. it said if we had confidence we would so state. but based on the facts and applicable legal standards, we are unable to reach that judgment. the president retweeted that jerry falwell jr. saying he should get an extra two years tacked on his term. you can dismiss it as constitutional nonsense. but the sitting president of the united states retweeted it and referred to two wasted years in a tweet of his own.
