(1 of 2) Democrats' framing today is awful. There were two issues on the table yesterday: criminal behavior (was it found in 1 of the 21 pending probes of Trump) and counterintelligence behavior (a different but equally important standard that determines if Trump is compromised).

(2 of 2) If a Democrat says Mueller didn't establish an IRA/GRU conspiracy *no accused Trump of anyway*, fine. If they want to say Trump committed an impeachable crime they won't impeach him for, fine (but JFC). But they better explain *how* he's not a *national security threat*.

PS/ We've got Democrats saying, "Well, there might not be a *crime*...", and they're ignoring there *was* a crime they won't act on— obstruction. Then they say, "...but it's just bad behavior", when no—sorry—the Report establishes with high confidence that Trump is *compromised*.
