Before dawn on the East Coast, I’ve now slept on the Mueller Report news. A few thoughts:

1/ Trump is famously a sore loser & the sort of victor who gloats. After two years of NO COLLUSION, he put a lid on the White House & slipped down to Mar-a-Lago w/ nary a peep. As winners do.

He brought a phalanx of spox & lawyers w/him, more than usual:
2/ One would expect President NO COLLUSION to boast and brag and gloat that Mueller confirmed NO COLLUSION. No doubt he will do that eventually, no matter what, but in the meantime, the braggart has nothing to offer on the subject:
3/ Only the most sycophantic Trumpists mustered that sort of gusto:
4/ Now, this will likely change. Trump will need to spin this thing no matter what.
5/ As to the matter of the sealed indictments: My theory is that they existed & they existed EARLY, as insurance in case Trump fired Mueller. These would be mooted by superseding indictments filed later, at OSC and elsewhere.

SDNY, EDVA & NY AG are NOT done w/the Trumps.
6/ That Junior, Jared and the others will be indicted in another jurisdiction is a mortal lock.

Unlike former House Intelligence Chair Devin Nunes (R-Ussia), Chairman Schiff is a straight shooter not given to hyperbole:
7/ If you don’t believe work done by Mueller could lead to indictments in SDNY, you should talk to Michael Cohen, who would reply: SAYS WHO?
8/ Timing is key here. It may well be that other investigations were waiting for Mueller to turn in the Report before springing to action.
9/ We don’t know what’s in the Report. My guess is that it will be narrow, and leave much unresolved. It will NOT be an exoneration of Trump.

Also: OSC still has to prosecute Stone. So Mueller isn't done.
10/ When the report comes out, turn OFF the TV and read the thing yourself. The networks will have some folks speed-read and hit the highlights. Ignore that.

Every word will be significant.
Darkest light is before the dawn. And the sun, as I type this, is rising. I literally started this thread in darkness and ended it in light.

Have faith.
