Mueller Testimony Sinks #Dems Hopes for Impeachment

There's just too much titillating commentary on yesterday's debacle. I'll try to get to some of it throughout the day.

Meanwhile, at the Los Angeles Times, "Mueller’s testimony seems unlikely to boost impeachment — but could vindicate Pelosi":
WASHINGTON —  Robert S. Mueller III did little on Wednesday to boost the prospects of impeaching President Trump.

The former special counsel’s highly anticipated testimony before Congress did not deliver the sort of splashy moment that circulates on cable TV. Instead, as he promised, Mueller stuck carefully to the text of his investigative report, occasionally — at times haltingly — offering a nuance, but often providing one-word answers to questions.

The result seemed likely to do little more than harden the opinions held by the public — and lawmakers — on President Trump and whether he should be removed from office.

Even Democratic supporters of impeachment were openly disappointed that the hearing did not deliver fireworks...
