Mueller Bomb or Dud?

Mueller finally dropped the bomb, or sort of this last Friday.  He has concluded his investigation and turned over his report to Attorney General Barr.  The problem is not very many people have seen the report yet to see what is actually in it; so at this point very few actually know how explosive it…
