Mueller Thread

Special Counsel Bob Mueller has delivered his report to the Justice Department. Per the Wall Street Journal, a senior Justice Department official reports that he won't be recommending any further indictments.

As Sarah Kendzior notes, this means that Michael Flynn and "others who committed severe crimes — and remain major national security threats — got cushy cooperation agreements," for reasons that certainly aren't readily apparent.

There are reports that Attorney General Bill Barr is going to swiftly deliver the report to the House Democrats, but let's not believe that until we see it. House Democrats have, meanwhile, "immediately renewed their demands to make Robert Mueller's report — and the evidence it is based on — public as quickly as possible, warning that there would be consequences if the White House attempts to censor or manipulate it."

Anyway. That's where things stand at the moment. Here is a thread for discussion as things unfold.
