Muelling Over the Report

Robert Mueller — Caricature by DonkeyHotey https://www.flickr.com/photos/donkeyhotey/39264704280

Read (at least some of) the report

Does that mean every constituent should read the report? Well, I’d encourage you to try. You don’t have the impetus to read all 448 pages? I totally get that: busy, myself, and wallowed in a significant portion of the citations.

Encourage Congress to hold hearings — NOW

Even still, a lot of us are just visually cued. And definitely, there are many questions that need to be answered. For instance, the 10 Democratic members of the Senate Judiciary Committee want to ask Mueller 60 questions. And Ryan Goodman and Asha Rangappa (my lastest intellicrush…) have a running list that you can contribute to.

Act with full (or enough) information

So, you’ve read some of the report, you’ve listened to some of the hearings, you understand the basics of how impeachment of a president works. At that time, you’ll need to decide if impeachment proceedings should be started in the Congress, knowing that the Senate is where the case is tried. After we get the information we need, and a formal impeachment process has been conducted, would ⅔ of the Senate be pressured by enough of their constituents to impeach the President?

  • that we, each ourselves, know what happened,
  • that the information is getting to every other constituent,
  • and that we understand how our legal and moral leaders have interpreted it.
