Mueller revealed multiple discrepancies between Erik Prince's testimony to Congress & his conversations with the special counsel's office. They also made the man who promises to be Trump's all-conquering imperial viceroy abroad just look small & sad.

This needs to be understood as straight-up abdication on the part of himself. Note that he's even taking an impeachment *inquiry* off the table. Remarkable cowardice and dereliction of basic duty.

Key point from Brian. 2016 isn't some historical debate. It's (possibly) the future, too.

What’s remarkable is that his own advisors - from McGahn to Lewandowski on down - disagreed and refused to carry out his orders to do so.

This is just such a bizarre view of politics. You can use political power to force other actors to react and in the process that might produce the consensus you are looking for!

This is a striking footnote. It’s raising seriously the possibility of criminal liability when Trump leaves office. Amazing.
