What do you hope will be achieved if the full Mueller report is ever available to the American

public? Impeachment proceedings, satisfying your curiosity, swaying undecided voters in 2020, etc. etc. etc.?

1. Just an accurate history-- what we do with it is another question. But...

We have been fed so much bullshit over the years (remember the Warren Commission?) that a glimpse of truth would be refreshing.

2. Trump could stall until the end of his term, no problem.

The whole thing would get tied up in the courts forever, and the Republican Senate would never remove him from office if there were an impeachment. However, Trump would lose in 2020, the Senate would flip to the Democrats, and then things would finally start happening in 2021.

But Trump will successfully stall until his term is over. That I can almost guarantee. We need to focus on November 2020. Really.

3. I have limited expectations

I think there will be some material that will lead to further investigations, first off. I think public shaming of Donny, Jr. Kushner and a few other may occur. My MOST fervent hope is that it leads to the indictment of Pence, or at least a public shaming as an unindicted co-conspirator.

I doubt it will contain many surprises, more likely a confirmation of some suspicions, and indications without proof of other things I have suspected. What I DO expect it to contain is a huge list of embarrassments the Republicans would rather not have come out. Not stuff we can jail them for, necessarily, but material that will keep Colbert, Kimmel, Oliver and SNL, and their writers, in full-time employment for the next five years. Republicans may prefer that to a jail sentence, but only barely!


I doubt it will sway ONE undecided voter, because I don't think there IS any such thing any more. The only thing that will swing a Trumpanzee voter will be if they lose their job, their health, or their health care, and Trump says something so outlandish that they realize he REALLY doesn't care about them.

At the Denver convention in 2008, the night Obama accepted his nomination, an Indiana farmer named Barney Smith was allowed to speak. I could barely see him, but he looked the part, alright. He said he had voted Republican all his life, but was voting for Obama this time because he finally wanted a president that cared more about Barney Smith than Smith Barney. Find a few more of those (if there are any left!), and they will be the new "swing" voters. I can't imagine anyone else left who hasn't already made up their minds.

8. I don't expect the full Mueller report

to have anything other than possibly a one or two news cycle tidbit that will be essentially meaningless.

If a person doesn't already despise Trump, then they're simply not paying attention, and no extra nuggets of truth are going to make a difference.
