The political news cycle is fast, and keeping up can be overwhelming. Trying to find differing perspectives worth your time is even harder. That’s why we have scoured the internet for writing from across the political spectrum that you might not have seen.
There is no shortage of opinions about the Mueller report, which was released on Thursday. Here’s a look at what the writers of opinion articles and editorials are saying should happen next, what they think the report proves and what they say it shows about the United States.
It’s time for impeachment, some say.
For these writers, the report by the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, simply underscores the need for Congress to oust the president.
What the report “shows, with crystal clarity, is that today there is a cancer in the presidency: President Donald J. Trump,” George Conway, a lawyer and husband to the White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, wrote in The Washington Post.
Not to proceed with impeachment would be an “act of unparalleled moral cowardice” for Democrats, David Faris, a political science professor, wrote in The Week.
Yoni Appelbaum, an editor at The Atlantic, argued that Mr. Trump should welcome an impeachment proceeding, which would give him a chance to clear his name once and for all.
But some have argued that such a move could backfire for Democrats. “Moving to impeach Trump now would only make him stronger,” Scott Martelle wrote in The Los Angeles Times.
Democrats should move on, conservatives say.
These writers argued that the report shows that liberals have overstepped.
“The Democrats’ ardent defense of the special prosecutor’s independence is now seen as bad faith,” wrote Daniel Henninger, deputy editor of The Wall Street Journal’s editorial page.
Elizabeth Harrington, the national spokeswoman for the Republican National Committee, wrote in The Hill: “It is time for Democrats to accept reality.”
“If they now reject his findings, they’ll be party to a process more damaging than anything Trump has done,” Abe Greenwald, the senior editor of Commentary, wrote in The New York Post.
New York’s former mayor called for reforms.
Writing for the publication he founded, Michael Bloomberg said impeachment is not necessary but argued that Congress should act on other matters raised by the report: “New legislation is needed to protect American campaigns and voting systems against future attacks.”
The case for obstruction.
The Mueller report punted on whether President Trump obstructed justice, but several commentators said it showed that he had.
“I don’t know if his actions meet the legal standard of obstruction of justice, but they certainly meet the common-sense standard of interference with justice,” wrote David Brooks of The New York Times.
Cass R. Sunstein, a former official in the Obama White House and a Harvard Law School professor, argued that Mr. Mueller likely concluded that “the evidence probably makes out a crime, but because the president cannot be indicted, and because there can’t be a trial, I’m not going to say so.”
The case against the media.
Glenn Greenwald of the Intercept accused Democrats and news organizations of perpetrating a “hoax,” arguing that the report “simply did not establish any of the conspiracy theories that huge parts of the Democratic Party, the intelligence community and the U.S. media spent years encouraging the public to believe.”
David Harsanyi, a senior editor at The Federalist, agreed, arguing in The New York Post that journalists should “be focusing on exoneration rather than theorizing about obstruction.”
The system works.
A Washington Post columnist, David Ignatius, said that the Mueller report “affirmed that the fundamentals of accountability are still intact despite Trump’s best efforts to rig the system.”
Verdicts on President Trump.
Jacob Sullum, a senior editor at the libertarian magazine Reason, argued that while there may be insufficient proof that Mr. Trump obstructed justice, there’s plenty of evidence of hubris: “Over and over again, he opened his mouth when he should have kept it shut, lied clumsily and transparently.”
“It is a deeply damning description of the president of the United States,” wrote Ezra Klein, co-founder of Vox.
“What the report portrays, in numbing legalese and revealing footnotes, is a breathtaking culture of lying and impunity, distrust and double-dealing,” wrote Susan B. Glasser of The New Yorker.
“Neither [Attorney General William] Barr nor Mueller’s report itself has answered a crucial question: Is Trump a threat to U.S. national security?” Seth Hettena, an investigative reporter, wrote in The Los Angeles Times.
The judgment on Mueller.
“He was the wrong man to provide an honest assessment of the 2016 collusion dirty trick,” argued Kimberley Strassel, a member of The Wall Street Journal’s editorial board. “And we’ve got a report to prove it.”
Others argued that Mueller’s institutionalism kept him from going far enough: “By protecting the presidency, Mueller has hurt the country,” Paul Rosenzweig, a senior fellow at the R Street Institute and a principal at Red Branch Consulting, wrote in The Atlantic.
What Barr got right — and wrong.
Some accused Mr. Barr, who previewed the report in a news conference, of trying to steer the narrative, prioritizing the interests of President Trump over those of the American people. “His account was selective at best, and false at worse,” Nancy Gertner, a retired federal judge and a professor at Harvard Law School, wrote in The Boston Globe.
Others defended Mr. Barr. In The Times, Christopher Buskirk, editor and publisher of the journal American Greatness, agreed with the attorney general’s suggestion that the president was frustrated by the Mueller investigation and felt that it was undermining his presidency.
“He was right. And it was obvious in places like Arizona (where I live), but not in Washington or New York,” Mr. Buskirk said.B:
