Re: Mueller Report

Some responses to your  recent survey about the Mueller Report reminded me of the historical story of the Mexican leader who, when given a message he did not like, shot the messenger.

I understand that people may not like what was in the Mueller investigation report, and that is a somewhat normal partisan political response.  That said, I have deep concern about personal attacks on Robert Mueller, the man.

Consider:  the man was a Marine officer wounded in Vietnam; a man with awards for his valor;  a man selected for positions by four presidents, and validated by congressional approval.  He is also a man with personal integrity, and that is a highly needed virtue in our nation. 

The results based on facts of the charge he was given were just that; facts.  I do not know law, but I do know words.  “Insufficient evidence” does not mean there was “no” evidence, it means that there was some evidence, but not enough to prove a point in a court of law.  Disagree with the facts if you will, but do not denigrate the man for finding them, and telling us about them.  Thank you.
