No new bombshells from special counsel Robert Mueller. He was buttoned-down Mueller to the end.
Mueller reiterated the findings of his report to the attorney general, whom he credited for a “good faith” release of the report to the public.
He gave voice to the most controversial findings of the report: He could not make a decision to charge the President with obstruction because DOJ policy considers it unconstitutional to indict a sitting President.
But he also echoed the finding of the report that if they had found that the President did not commit a crime, they would have said as much.
What I find hard to square is that Mueller is kicking the obstruction of justice case to Congress for consideration of impeachment but is refusing to testify to Congress about it. That’s a disconnect that became even sharper during his statement.
