The Mueller Report put in a Nutshell

Last Update added below on April 22.

BBC - The Mueller Report in 60 Seconds !

According to the Mueller Report there is evidence that US president D. Trump tried to obstruct justice about 10 times. Now it's time for a Congress Hearing of special counsel Robert Mueller that might lead to further inquiries into the matter.

BBC Update on April 20 :
Elizabeth Warren is now the first Democratic presidential candidate to call for Mr Trump to be impeached. "The severity of this misconduct demands that elected officials in both parties set aside political considerations and do their constitutional duty," said the Massachusetts senator.

More information available from NHK World - Japan on April 19, 2019 :

" A probe by US Special Counsel Robert Mueller says President Donald Trump instructed a White House counsel to tell the Justice Department to fire Mueller.

The Justice Department has made public its report on alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 US presidential election.

The report said that when Trump was notified in May of 2017 that Mueller had been appointed special counsel, Trump said, "Oh my God. This is terrible. This is the end of my presidency." [Editor's Note: It was the then Secretary of Justice Jeff Sessions, an ultra-conservative pro-Trump hardliner, who informed the president. Sessions left on Trump's request after the 2018 midterm elections.]

Trump reportedly called White House counsel Don McGahn several times during the following month and ordered him to tell the Justice Department to fire Mueller. McGahn did not carry out the order and resigned.

US Attorney General William Barr concluded that there was not enough evidence to show that Trump committed the crime of obstruction of justice.

Trump now insists he has been exonerated.

But the Mueller report said the investigators were unable to conclude that the president clearly did not obstruct justice. "


On April 22, 2019, the California based magazine Salon came about with a gloomy perception of America's "state of the interior" in the frame of Robert Mueller's report in its public version: "Robert Mueller has unveiled the failings of a vastly corrupt system. It's almost too late to save our democracy".

Having just finished the voluminous novel on US society, "4321", written by America's bestseller author Paul Auster, I cannot help quoting the name "Nobodaddy" which the novel's protagonist Ferguson applied to those who are really in power in his country. That's why I think you should read the complete Salon article and which is just about the "Nobodaddy Movement", starring the white and the rich and their influential networks:

Mueller report: A harsh indictment of Donald Trump — and also of America's leadership class.
