What and how much will Mueller talk about after he is done as Special Prosecutor?

Of course, Mueller won't be able to talk about things that he discovered as prosecutor that are under seal by the courts or are national security secrets, but how much would he be limited beyond that to testify before Congress and in just plain old interviews by journalists? Will he just clam up because he feels it is the proper thing to do - even if Trump manages to quash his investigation/report?

I'd love to hear him tell a narrative of what he thinks has happened based on the evidence he uncovered - hopefully he will do essentially that in the way he writes his report that is in turn made public. And especially with respect to Putin mucking around with our democracy, I'd love to hear what he thinks we should do about it.

I can't imagine he'd want to talk about it at all and would probably hope to get back to normal life asap.

Neal Katyal wrote the book on special counsels. Read his thread on twitter. It explains a lot [twitter.com]

Thanks Pam. Good breakdown.

Of course, those currently in charge have the power to declare "under established Departmental practices" simply don't apply, for whatever made up reason, and will do their best to have the court of Public Opinion sway whatever Congress might or might not do.

Given what we know about McConnell, I don't see an easy road for any of this, regardless Special Counsel reports.

Thanks. I didn't know about the rules where there is mandatory reporting to Congress if the AG overrules the Special Counsel. That is a big deal for sure.

Thanks, Pam, that made my day more smile worthy. It would be nice if Neal Katyal would be invited on the Shame Hannity Faux News show to explain this to all the sheeple.

It's hard, in this day and age, to believe that Mueller won't write a book. Of course, he's not like most of the people in DC so perhaps I shouldn't be surprised if he does not. But I will be surprised, anyhow.

I’m sure he will be offered big bucks for a book and TV BUT I don’t think he will bite. He will stay mum.

He will be invited to many many parties winking smiley
