    Here is the quote from the Mueller document

    Under OLC's analysis, Congress can permissibly criminalize certain obstructive conduct
    by the President
    , such as suborning perjury , intimidating witnesses, or fabricating evidence ,
    because those prohibitions raise no separation-of-powers questions. See Application of 28 U.S.C.
    § 458 to Presidential Appointments of Federal Judges, 19 Op. O.L.C. at 357 n.11. The
    Constitution does not authorize the President to engage in such conduct, and those actions would
    transgress the President's duty to "take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed. " U.S . CONST.
    ART IT, §§ 3.

    Yes, Mueller left it up to Congress and gave them the road map, for Impeachment Inquiry...

    Barr jumped in, where he did NOT belong.

    Jaworski and Ken Starr, did the same for Nixon and Clinton... they did not press charges against these Presidents, they turned over a road map for Congress, to impeach them, or in the least, to begin impeachment hearings.

    We have a bunch of crooked people in the white house, beginning with Barr.

    Correct.

    It’s the role and responsibility of the people to hold Trump accountable for his actions via the political process – either by impeachment or at the ballot box.

    The AG is who decides criminality or not. The Congress is in charge of impeachment. Just like the Congress is not in charge of prosecution, the AG is not in charge of impeachment.

    Now it's a question if the Democrats want to move on this. I think if they did, it would help us greatly regaining leadership of the House again, and perhaps shoring up our Senate a little more. Piglosi knows this. She's been in politics a long time. However the New Kids On The Block think they have a better way.

    So let's see what they do.

    Y’all are silly. Separation of powers makes Impeachment a political process involving the Legislative, Judicial, and Executive branches of government. Both Mueller and Barr are in the Executive branch of government.

    Congress cannot pass a Bill of Attainder.

    Thus without an actual felony or misdemeanor conviction through the justice system, they cannot proceed with actual impeachment.

    The Bill of Attainder clause in the Constitution was specifically added to prevent a partisan Congress from abusing impeachment powers. Once again, the Founder Fathers cockblocked you.
