Yesterday, nearly 400 former federal prosecutors, across the aisle both Republicans and Democrats, signed a letter asserting that President Trump would have been indicted for obstruction of justice based on the Mueller report and evidence within were he not currently serving as president.

Today, roughly 300 more signed on for a total of 700 thus far;

I wonder if the people protecting him will jump ship eventually, spinning on a penny, turning against him.

We'll see. For now, however, they seem far more willing to ignore subpoenas from congress and appear willing to let themselves be charged with contempt (in essence, disregarding congressional oversight powers and choosing to instead let this all trickle slowly through our court system / run out the clock until the next election cycle arrives and it no longer matters).

This was in today's BBC, which could potentially  alter things maybe:

When Mr Mueller initially handed in his report, a spokesman said he would be leaving the department "within the coming days".

If he does quit, he will become a private citizen and able to testify regardless of the department's wishes.  https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-48204251

I was really impressed by this quick summary series on the Mueller Report done by PBS NewsHour.

In 5 short videos about 5 minutes a piece, they give a summary of the nearly 450 page report in a way that’s easily consumable for those who have been paying close attention or even no attention at all. 

Here’s a link to the 5 video playlist:

The House Judiciary and House Intelligence committees have subpoenaed former special counsel Robert Mueller for his testimony before Congress, according to a press release issued Tuesday evening.

Importantly, these will be open sessions. They will for many millions of people be the very first time they hear an unbiased version of what’s in his report.
