John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

In his second round of testimony Wednesday, former Special Counsel Robert Mueller corrected what was initially seen as the biggest bombshell from remarks he gave earlier in the day regarding his investigation into whether President Trump attempted to obstruct the Russia probe.

“Now before we go to questions, I want to add one correction to my testimony this morning,” Mueller began at the outset of his testimony before the House Intelligence Committee.

He referred back to an exchange he had earlier Wednesday with California Rep. Ted Lieu during a hearing before the House Judiciary Committee.

Mueller agreed with Lieu that the reason the special counsel’s office did not charge Trump with obstruction was because of Justice Department office of legal counsel policies against indicting sitting presidents.

“The reason again that you did not indict Donald Trump is because of [Office of Legal Counsel] opinion stating that you cannot indict a sitting president, correct?” Lieu asked.

“That is correct,” Mueller said.

Mueller’s statement was seen as a major boon for Democrats, who have speculated that Mueller would have indicted Trump if he were not president.

But those hopes were dashed when Mueller revisited his statement to Lieu.

“I want to go back to one thing that was said this morning by Mr. Lieu, who said, and I quote, ‘you didn’t charge the president because of the OLC opinion.’”

“That is not the correct way to say it,” Mueller said.

“As we say in the report, and as I said in the opening, we did not reach a determination as to whether the president committed a crime.”

Mueller said in his report and his testimony that prosecutors could not exonerate Trump on the issue of obstruction. The report did say that prosecutors were unable to establish that the Trump campaign conspired with the Russian government to interfere in the 2016 election.
