well now we enter into the part of the discussion of what is a legal prosecution vs. what serves the US electorate best.

You undoubtedly want to shift the discussion to one reflecting raw opinions because you have lost to the verifiable facts the argument in your original claim that Mueller investigating obstruction of justice is beyond the scope of his authority. It is explicitly within his authority and you are just giving up on that, which is good I suppose. Though you should at least have the decency to retract your attacks on my character for presenting to you the truth.

Not sure what you find “vindictive.” Manafort and his partner were money launderers who engaged in activities hostile to American interests. It would certainly not be good for our country to let that pass.

Flynn lied to the American people and the FBI regarding matters directly related to the investigation. Papadopoulos lied to the FBI regarding matters directly related to the investigation. Allowing public officials to lie to the FBI is also not in the interests of this nation.
