We should absolutely accept the verdict that Mueller did not find Trump campaign conspiracy with Russia. That appears to be unequivocal, and while we do need to see the report, I don't see any basis here for questioning this.
On obstruction, Barr's letter says not just that Mueller declined to make a prosecutorial decision, but also that the report "sets out evidence on both sides of the question." This means Congress *must* pursue the report, so it
can exercise basic oversight and inform the public.
Even those who accept collusion verdict (as I do) should want the report. Barr's letter says it details Russia's attack on our democracy.

Everyone should want full public reckoning of that. Those who opposed this probe also opposed this reckoning, which was/is indefensible.
Also note this footnote. Even those who consider the legal verdict a closed question should support Congress getting the report, as a matter of basic oversight and to fully inform the public as to the complexities and nuances of Mueller''s conclusions.
Those claiming "total exoneration" for Trump are *of necessity* claiming that the extensive corruption, wrongdoing and still-plausible criminality (other probes continue) that Mueller/spinoffs have *already* documented either doesn't matter or doesn't exist. Don't let that skate.
Final thought: Today's events underscore once again what we've all known, or should have known, to be true all along: The only solution to this rolling disaster will be a political one. Which is to say: Keep working, and leave it all on the field, because there's no other option.
