President Trump tweeted Wednesday that “nothing changes from the Mueller Report” after special counsel Robert Mueller made a rare public appearance to announce his resignation and put a bow on his two-year investigation.
Nothing changes from the Mueller Report. There was insufficient evidence and therefore, in our Country, a person is innocent. The case is closed! Thank you.

As he wrote in the report, Mueller said Wednesday that Trump couldn’t be charged.
“If we had had confidence that the President clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so,” Mueller said, adding, “under long-standing department policy, a president cannot be charged with a federal crime while he is in office.”
