The Mueller analysis of the obstruction of justice question is far more complex, nuanced, and unfavorable to the president that Attorney General William Barr has portrayed publicly.

Most importantly, the well-known DOJ policy that the President of the United States cannot be indicted was a significant consideration by the Mueller team and informed its analysis and its presentation of the obstruction question.

It also puts front and center Congress’ impeachment role, or as Mueller puts it: “constitutional processes for addressing presidential misconduct.”

This is very different from what Barr has been saying publicly.

We’ll be covering this closely.
