Democrats hoped that former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s testimony before House committees would bring his 448-page report on President Trump to life on video, because most Americans didn’t read the book. Instead, Democrats wound up reading the report to Mueller, who — in most cases — gave short answers, and referred them back to his written report. As a movie, the Mueller testimony flopped. Meanwhile, Republicans planted seeds of doubt about the political motives behind the two-year investigation into Russia’s election interference, and possible obstruction of justice by Trump. Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-TX, among others pointed out that Mueller’s claim that the “president was not exculpated” or “exonerated” flipped the presumption of innocence which lies at the heart of the American justice system.
