Quick thought on the Mueller probe

That the Mueller team emphasized that Trump has not been “exonerated” is a disturbing departure from constitutional norms and basic American values. It is not the government’s job to exonerate anyone. The burden on the government is to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. This turns that principle upside down. Donald Trump is not guilty until exonerated. He is innocent until proven guilty.
