This week I am sharing three articles that delve into their topics a bit more substantially than we see in our social media feeds. In order to solve problems, we need to understand them better.
Bob Mueller clearly hoped that his one televised press conference would suffice. Clearly, it will not. The left has many questions for him and the right continues to attack him. This article at The Bulwark makes the case as to why Mueller must testify, and also why it can’t be anyone else.
