    [–] We Need Evidence-Based Decision. Making Read and react to the Mueller Report—or you will be sorry. JigsawMuzzle 1 points ago in politics

    Read the Mueller Report here or

    An abbreviated list of the evidence:

    1) The Russians, on order from Russian President Vladimir Putin, attempted to help Trump and hurt Clinton, (vol. 1, pp. 4-5, 35).

    2) The Trump campaign was quite willing to accept their help (vol. 1, pp. 5-7).

    3) Numerous suspicious connections between Russians and the Trump campaign (vol. 1, pp. 8-10).

    4) Russia hacked the accounts of multiple people involved in the Clinton campaign and illegally dumped that material, to the Trump campaign’s benefit (vol. 1, pp. 36-50).

    5) Russia also made cyber attacks on U.S. state and local entities, state boards of elections, secretaries of state, and county governments including their employees (vol. 1, pp. 50-51).

    6) Mueller decided not to charge the president for obstruction, because of a Justice Department policy (vol. 2, pp. 1-2, 8).

    7) Obstruction of justice can be charged when there is no underlying crime. (vol. 2, pp. 9-12, 157).

    8) The president, as head of the Executive Branch, is not above obstruction laws (vol. 2, pp. 168-169, 180).

    9) The evidence for several instances of potential obstruction (there were 11 total) were strong enough to bring charges, but refer to point 4 (vol. 2, pp. 87-90, 97-98, 111-113, 118-120).

    10) President Trump was not exonerated regarding obstruction of justice (vol. 2, pp. 8, 182).

    Or, read the executive summaries provided with the report, volume 1 (pp. 4-10) and volume 2 (pp. 1-8) provide the reader with the important conclusions from an assessment of the evidence.
