Mueller: "If we had confidence that the president did not commit a crime we would have said so"

That's all we need to know. Trump was not cleared, if there was a crime they weren't going to indict anyways.

So no impeachment, no more investigations. Let's just run the election.

We know what we need to know.

This statement will not change the minds of the base on either side....and the independent swing voters can decide how important and relevant it is to them in their decision making.

Trump was not cleared, nor was he charged.

That's it.

3. There was systematic attempts to influence our elections - all Americans should be concerned.

Of course, there was more. But he made it clear who he worked for (DOJ) and that his scope was limited to what he did.

He did step over the line, IMHO, when he first said...

"It is longstanding policy that a sitting POTUS can't be indicted".....

but THEN added "It would be unconstitutional".

So, which is it? I think it is "longstanding policy", which gets broken every week in DC (see Fillibuster, SCOTUS hearings, etc.)
He was on a fools journey with respect to finding the President guilty of a crime due to DOJ policy.

So why was he task with that by DAG Rosenstein ?

Something isn't right or someone doesn't know their job and it may be Rosenstein.

Right. I think he ended how he did very intentionally - saying all Americans should be concerned about Russian interference. Because it's incredibly serious. Imagine the detail he and his team saw regarding interference, meetings, Internet Research Agency's social media campaign, attempts to get emails, etc.

Mainly for the idiots saying "Hillary was the real colluder herp a derp."

He clearly does not want to answer the question of when he knew there was no collusion, or what he knew about the Clinton dossier. He wants this to be over and done with, he sounded very nervous

If by "red meat" you mean reiterating the report's contents, then yes.

AG Barr made the decision and that's the end of it. He can't be overruled on it ?

Trump was not cleared or charged.

Bottom line.

And even there was a crime, Mueller wasn't going to indict.
