What Mueller did not say today:

1) When he said Russia interfered in the election, he left out the important perspective that interference in foreign elections is common place, and that the United States has done it more often than Russia.

2) He did not point out how trivial the alleged Russian interference was. If Russia was responsible for hacking DNC email, this only provided truthful information about Clinton and the DNC. If Clinton lost because of this, this still leaves Clinton and the DNC responsible for her loss. The social media campaign was trivial, representing an astronomically small percentage of social media traffic, and it is absurd to claim this had any impact. Much of the social media had nothing to do with the election. Other aspects such repeated what others were saying but in far greater numbers.

3) The claims that Russia was responsible for hacking the DNC may or may not be true. However, keep in mind that this is based upon the opinions of a handful of people in the intelligence community who have never provided evidence of this. It is hardly surprising that a handful of people in the intelligence community expressed an anti-Russia opinion. Also keep in mind that Mueller previously trusted false information from the intelligence community in testifying before Congress that Saddam had WMD.

4) Brushed over in today’s statement was the clear finding of his written report that there is no evidence of any conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia to alter the election results. Mueller did show evidence of obstruction of justice, and left it to Congress to take action related to this.
