I just thought I would offer a couple of possibilities (NOT probabilities)

First, what if the Jackass is not guilty? What if he is controlled and run by others, and is dumb as a two-by-four,utterly clueless and actually a victim?

Second, what would happen if the Jackass took a trip to Russia, and then asked for asylum in Russia?

Sorry, had to do it <G>

Not guilty of what? Everything? Money laundering, tax evasion, insider trading, wire fraud, cheating on his wife?
Using his office to enrich himself and his friends? He may be stupid and somewhat clueless but innocent? No, he's not innocent.

Their are more than enough high crimes and misdemeanors to send his ass back to Manhattan.

There is no Trump Tower in Russia. They don't like him. He's just a useful tool.

Lock him up.

Most Americans believe the justice system works. If something so blatant as Congress completely ignoring Mueller's report occurs, Republicans should probably high-tail it out of DC. When official justice fails, people tend to band together, march en-masse to the perceived point of failure, and burn everything to the ground. A massive riot in DC won't be pretty.

I think the recent revelations about Russia using the NRA as a political arm of its intelligence agencies, can't be sitting well with most of it's members. They have all those guns to defend America from a Russia-led coup, among other things! They may have been Trump voters but I bet very few are Putin fans. If Mueller's report links Trump strongly to Putin, I bet he loses a large part of his base quickly.
