The Mueller Report has been brought back to life, at least in the eyes of the Dems. All because of Mueller’s recent statement.
Mueller made claims that he could not fully exonerate Trump, or incriminate Trump, due to his position. He muddied the waters, reviving Dem’s hope that impeachment might be possible again.
But Alan Dershowitz claims that Mueller should be ashamed of himself, as he is in the wrong overstepping his role. He has no right to even imply that Trump is guilty.
“Until today, I have defended Mueller against the accusations that he is a partisan. I did not believe that he personally favored either the Democrats or the Republicans, or had a point of view on whether President Trump should be impeached. But I have now changed my mind. By putting his thumb, indeed his elbow, on the scale of justice in favor of impeachment based on obstruction of justice, Mueller has revealed his partisan bias. He also has distorted the critical role of a prosecutor in our justice system.”
“That determination of guilt or innocence requires a fully adversarial trial with a zealous defense attorney, vigorous cross-examination, exclusionary rules of evidence and other due process safeguards. Such safeguards were not present in this investigation, and so the suggestion by Mueller that Trump might well be guilty deserves no credence.”
“No prosecutor should ever say or do anything for the purpose of helping one party or the other. I cannot imagine a plausible reason why Mueller went beyond his report and gratuitously suggested that President Trump might be guilty, except to help Democrats in Congress and to encourage impeachment talk and action. Shame on Mueller for abusing his position of trust and for allowing himself to be used for such partisan advantage.”
Mueller should have stayed out of the spotlight. He is another Republican turncoat, that apparently wants to encourage the Dems to waste everyone’s time.
The Dems were practically done with all of the Mueller Report nonsense, as they saw that they were just spinning their wheels getting nowhere. But now they are going to think that there is evidence, and reason to continue. Dershowitz is right, shame on you Mueller.
