    Help us Obi-wan Mueller, you're our only hope.

The shitty thing about relying on Mueller is that Mueller's mandate isn't to investigate what happened. His mandate is to investigate if any crimes occurred and if so, to prosecute those responsible. There are probably a lot of nefarious things that happened that don't reach the level of prosecutable. Those things are not things Mueller is likely to inform the public about. Those are things that it should be up to Congress to inform the public about. When Schiff is the new chair of the intelligence committee, he needs to start subpoenaing motherfuckers with reckless abandon, and then have as many people as possible testify in open sessions. We have a right to know what happened, and that's the only way we'll ever find out. The only things that should be off limits from public view are sources and methods interviews from intelligence gatherers.
