Mueller: If We Had Confidence That Trump Had Not Committed A Crime, We Would Have Said So [VIDEO]

Heavy reports:

Special Counsel Robert Mueller gave his first public statement in the Russia investigation on May 29, 2019, confirming that his office’s conclusion was that there was “insufficient evidence to charge a broader conspiracy” against the Trump campaign in relation to Russian efforts to interfere with the election.

He also addressed allegations the president might have committed obstruction of justice. If we had confidence that the president had not committed a crime, he would have said so, Mueller said.

Mueller said his office did not make a determination as to whether the president did commit a crime. He said it was prohibited and unconstitutional to charge a president with a federal crime. “Charging the president with a crime was therefore not an option we could consider,” said Mueller.
