At 11 a.m. EST, Bob Mueller will make a statement about the Russia probe. He won't take questions. Is this meant to head off a congressional subpoena?
This is an official Department of Justice press conference, which doesn't bode well. We'll see. Meanwhile, Twitter is exploding:

Usually press conferences in Washington start at least 15 minutes late but Robert Mueller feels like a guy who might start on time.

Let’s not get overly excited. He might be “under duress” to back AG Barr’s previous comment on the Mueller report.

Hope I am wrong, but my pure guess is today is Mueller's final day at work for DOJ and he will give a farewell statement that explains why he will not testify publicly, and that is the last we will see or hear from him, in public.
Never hoped to be more wrong.

Not gonna watch the Mueller statement until the weekend, so please NO SPOILERS

On Mueller I believe he still works for the DOJ, I wonder how much freedom he will have to say what he wants.

“A person familiar with the matter said Mueller will deliver a “substantial” statement, but declined to provide more details.” https://t.co/gz8dNWbPer

Folks, it's possible Mueller is going to go on camera and call AG Barr a big stinky-head.
It's also possible he's just going to go on TV and say he's done.
