If congressional Democrats hoped to learn anything from today’s testimony from Special Counsel Robert Mueller, it was whether Donald Trump would have been indicted for the actions that Muller’s team uncovered during their investigation were he not a sitting president.

Congressman Ted Lieu (D-CA) managed to coax the reluctant witness to admit as much in his questioning of the special counsel, getting Mueller to admit that the reason he did not indict the President for the multiple instances of obstruction of justice clearly laid out in his report was simply the ruling by the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) that a sitting president cannot be indicted

Neal Katyal, former Acting Solicitor General of United States in the Obama administration, saw the exchange as confirmation that anyone other than President trump who engaged in the behavior the inquiry disclosed would be prosecuted and convicted.

Mueller reached that conclusion despite the fact that — as he admitted in his answer to Congresswoman Val Demmings (D-FL) question — Trump officials had impeded his investigation into the facts of the circumstances his team was investigating.

It’s difficult to argue after Mueller’s testimony this morning that impeachment is not immediately imperative. If Democrats do fail to move forward with impeachment due to political considerations — the only reason at this point for not initiating proceedings — at least we have the satisfaction of knowing that Mueller has admitted that Trump could be indicted for his crimes the minute that he leaves the office.

All the more reason to ensure that a Democrat is elected to the presidency in 2020.
