Former Representative Trey Gowdy (R) argued this week that the Mueller report was left “open-ended” concerning whether or not President Trump obstructed justice. In turn, this is helping the anti-Trump Left continue their conspiracy theory and impeachment pursuits. Gowdy pointed that the message to Congress is essentially: “That’s for you to decide. We’re going to punt it to you.” This “vagueness” in the report is what appears to be fueling Democrats’ ongoing conspiracy-driven hunt for a smoking gun against Trump. The question is whether or not that helps them in 2020. If the GOP’s losses in 1998 during the Lewinsky scandal are any clue, the answer is demonstrably negative.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s decision not to offer up a conclusion on whether President Trump obstructed justice stems from serious uncertainty over the law.
That’s according to former congressman and Fox News contributor Trey Gowdy, who gave a lengthy, candid interview to Bill Hemmer on the latest “Hemmer Time” podcast.
“There is some unsettled law on exactly what a president can do. I mean, a president could pardon you today, Bill, before you were ever charged,” Gowdy told Hemmer.
“A president can call the United States attorney and say, ‘look, I’m going to pardon Bill Hemmer so don’t even waste your time.’”
“I think it’s an open-ended question — can a president obstruct an investigation? Surely if you spoliate evidence, if you encourage witnesses to lie, of course, that’s obstruction of justice.
