Change just a few names here and there and imagine how this would play out….

Imagine the world in which Mueller’s report read as follows:

In this investigation, the evidence does not establish that President Clinton was involved in an underlying crime related to Iranian election interference. But the evidence does point to a range of other possible personal motives animating the President’s conduct. These include concerns that continued investigation would call into question the legitimacy of his election and potential uncertainty about whether certain events — such as advance notice of WikiLeaks’s release of hacked information or the June 9, 2016 meeting between senior campaign officials and Iranians— could be seen as criminal activity by the President, her campaign, her family, or her family’s charitable foundation….

The evidence we obtained about the President’s actions and intent presents difficult issues that prevent us from conclusively determining that no criminal conduct occurred. Accordingly, while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate her.”

My response would be white hot rage at the Clinton team, including a demand that she leave office. My Republican friends would of course feel the same. That they do not here simply because Trump is “theri guy” tells you everything you ever need to know about the role of principles in their political lives. Never forget this.
