Right after Robert Mueller’s controversial press conference, a slew of Hollywood celebrities took to Twitter to demand Trump’s impeachment.
The Federalist reported that according to Mueller and his team, charged Russians are presumed innocent. An American president, however, is presumed guilty unless and until Mueller’s team determines he is innocent. Such a standard is an obscene abomination against the rule of law, one that would never be committed by independent attorneys who place a fidelity to their oaths and impartial enforcement of the law ahead of their political motivations.
Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz previously rejected any theories that Mueller was partisan, but he has now changed his mind.
Dershowitz wrote in The Hill that Robert Mueller went beyond the conclusion of his report and gave a political gift to Democrats in Congress who are seeking to institute impeachment proceedings against President Trump. By implying that President Trump might have committed obstruction of justice, Mueller effectively invited Democrats to institute impeachment proceedings. Obstruction of justice is a “high crime and misdemeanor” which, under the Constitution, authorizes impeachment and removal of the president.
Celebrities wasted no time demanding Democrats impeach the President of the United States.
Congress – its yr fucking job – do yr job – RT @thehill: Robert Mueller: "If we had had confidence that the President clearly did not commit a crime we would have said so." #Mueller https://t.co/UHyflCo9qS pic.twitter.com/wqz9mCa6Ue

The President of the United States obstructed Justice. Now it’s up to Congress to do its job. #ImpeachTrump

Message from the @GOP:
There are no principles – not ethical, moral, legal, constitutional, religious, spiritual – NONE. There’s only power. And when we get the power, everybody else fucking duck.
Lesson for everybody else:
Get the power.

CONGRESS MUST ACT.
At least that's my take on what Mueller said.

You have to give some people help to be courageous @justinamash Tape colleagues agreeing with you about Trump & Mueller then give tape to investigative journalist. Colleagues finally hear their own voices saving America & they get to still claim they were your victims. @clairecmc https://t.co/5PbqvP3HW1
