nearvideo-Howard Kurtz: Why TV-aroused by Müller, a voice that his report
‘MediaBuzz’ host Howard Kurtz weighs in on how the two political parties, the Interpretation of Special Counsel Robert Müller’s remarks during his public speech.
The post Mueller’s press was filled with a presentation of the indictment — mocked Donald Trump as a “filthy, dirty, disgusting word”, it would be easy to assume that a wave is building.
“Müller’s remarks Calls for fuel charges,” said the banner headline in yesterday’s Washington Post.
And it is true that democratic presidential candidates for impeachment because of the Miller’s appearance. This contender— given, of course, substantial coverage to pull in the media include Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Beto O’rourke, and it’s a free hit for you, that three-quarters of the Democrats in favor of impeachment, according to recent polls. Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders, among the holdouts.
But here’s a reality check: none of them calls for a vote on this. And as Nancy Pelosi has pointed out that the number of house Democrats push for impeachment of 40 plus, mostly from the party’s left wing. But there are 235 Democrats in the chamber.
BARR SAID HE PERSONALLY FELT’ MUELLER COULD HAVE REACHED, THE DECISION ON DISABILITY
To begin with, so for all the headlines and TV news chatter, a significant minority of the Pelosi rank-and-file really want impeachment proceedings. And Pelosi is holding the line.
Impeachment will not happen without the speaker’s approval. And, you know, the Democrats have a better chance of anyone Trump at the ballot box in the next year as the entry into an all-consuming impeachment drive would not be in the Senate.
Split in the Democratic party extends beyond calls charges Trump
Speaker Pelosi faces growing demands for impeachment; response and analysis from Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz, and ‘The Five’ – Moderator Juan Williams.
As a story, but, the possibility of a prosecution far more enticing than the mundane reality is that it probably won’t happen.
It is probably fair to say that Müller was added to the scarce performance, the pressure on Pelosi, but the California Congressman is not easily pushed around.

Given the polarization around the Müller-probe, so it is hardly surprising that the commentators have reached different conclusions from his lawyerly remarks, which is repeated basically what is in the 448-page report.
As The New York Times put it, “here is what President Trump belongs to:” case closed.’ Here is what the President belongs to the opponents: “to accuse time.'”
MÜLLER DOES NOT WANT TO TESTIFY, BUT HE WILL ALSO SUBPOENA SUCCESSFUL IN HEADING OFF?
Conservative experts took the opportunity to renew their long-running attacks on Müller (as the President), although he says he wants to testify.
Liberal critics pounced on his remark, that, while he doesn’t think he can charge a sitting President, “behavior the Constitution requires a different process than it is to accuse the criminal justice system officially, a sitting President of misconduct.” You see, they say, he is practically begging the house accuse! But Müller was just quoting an old DOJ memo.

Nevertheless, there were voices to say yesterday, it would be good to go for Müller to the top of the hill and recite the report, if only because a much-needed visual.
“As a person who read the report,” said Rachel Maddow, “I think it is still useful to the dude wrote that it’s there to say, hey, you know, here is what it says.”
But if that is the case, given that Müller speaks slowly, carefully, legalese, instead would it not be better, Robert DeNiro to read it?
