To ignore a President’s repeated efforts to obstruct an investigation into his own disloyal behavior would inflict great and lasting damage on this country, and it would suggest that both the current and future Presidents would be free to abuse their power in similar ways.
Vindication for Hillary?
In which universe?
Hillary and her campaign paid for the Steele dossier - the pretext for the issuance of FISA court warrants against US citizens.

Et tu Mrs Clinton?
One of the notable aspects of the Mueller report is just how deeply involved Russian operatives were in making sure that Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 presidential election.

Instead, the main discussion has been about the next steps to take against Mr Trump.
Despite the effort by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to dismiss impeachment as an option, some believe that's the path that Democrats in Congress should take.

Legal scholar Lawrence Tribe joined her call, saying, "postponing impeachment hearings no longer makes sense."
"That it'd be unprincipled is clear enough. But it'd be politically unwise as well: To quote Shakespeare, 'We must take the current when it serves, or lose our ventures'."
