Mueller Speaks Out: No “Option” to Charge Trump With a Crime


In his first public remarks since taking the job of special counsel, Robert Mueller held a news conference from the Justice Department on Wednesday to announce that he was officially closing down the Office of the Special Counsel and leaving his report to speak for itself. In what he insisted would be his final public comments on the matter, save for possible congressional testimony, Mueller confirmed once again that his investigation found that there “was not sufficient evidence to charge a conspiracy” between the Trump 2016 campaign and Russian hackers working to undermine the election.

However, when it came to the second volume of the report – the one about Trump’s possible obstruction of the investigation – Mueller was far less conclusive about the results.

“If we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said that,” Mueller said. “We did not determine whether the president did commit a crime. Charging the president with a crime was not an option we could consider. It would be unfair to accuse someone of a crime when there could be no court resolution of the charge.

“The Constitution requires a process other than the criminal justice system to formally accuse the president of wrongdoing,” Mueller continued. “Congress may apply obstruction laws to the President’s corrupt exercise of the powers of office accords with our constitutional system of checks and balances and the principle that no person is above the law.”

After Mueller was finished speaking, it was immediately obvious that interested observers heard what they wanted to hear from his speech.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, who has dedicated his latest term in office to “getting Trump,” said in a statement: “Given that Special Counsel Robert Mueller was unable to pursue criminal charges against the President, it falls to Congress to respond to the crimes, lies and other wrongdoing of President Trump—and we will do so. No one, not even the President of the United States, is above the law.”

President Trump, on the other hand, said that Mueller’s remarks were only confirmation of his campaign’s complete innocence.

“Nothing changes from the Mueller Report,” he tweeted. “There was insufficient evidence and therefore, in our Country, a person is innocent. The case is closed! Thank you.”

  1. Screw you start doing the business of the people not your for your illegals or mooselum terrorists. What are you afraid of. All the dirt to come out about the crap from the Hillary and Democrat paid Steele report. All the illegal crap you career politics have been doing for decades. You have turned my mother a lifelong Democrat into a Republican. If there is one thing you idiots are showing us is the need for term limits

    • My entire family has changed from Democrat to Republican. I was the first Republican in my family years ago. Now they’ve all changed because I kept telling them what the Dims were doing. If the people will only listen they will see that the Dims are not our friends, they are the Enemy.

      • Spot on! In fact, the Democrat Party is the greatest threat to the peace and security of our country and the traditional American values most hold dear. The only difference from days gone past is today the DEMs are much more vocal and in-your-face with their nonsense.

  2. He was never charged with INVESTIGATING A CRIMINAL ACT!

    No “criminal Act’ NO CRIME WAS COMMITTED!

    He NEVER had anything to ‘charge’ anybody with.

    The ONLY ‘convictions he got were for “Process crimes” which are ENTRAPMENT.
    When he charged the Russians, THEY SHOWED UP FOR COURT and he hurried to get the charges dropped BECAUSE IT WAS STRICTLY FOR SHOW!!!

  3. This moron that was supposed to be the Democrats savior was a stooge! No option to charge..damn.. there was no crime! Dig it..no crime! Mueller and the Dems wasted millions of our dollars investigating nothing.They actually thought if they looked under every rock they would find something to take Trump out. Wrong. Nothing there. There was a ton of stuff to take Hillary, the Dems, and Obama out. They are the true criminals. She won’t be running for office. She won’t e running at all unless the guards put it on her training schedule for her exercise while on the yard!

  4. mueller does not want to answer anymore questions, wow that is pretty arrogant of him.
    *
    1. when you were turned down by President Trump to head the FBI then was appointed to the special council by rosenstein did you not view that as a conflict should you have refused the job?
    *
    2. Is it true this started out as an intelligence investigation and you were given the opportunity by rosenstein to turn this into a criminal investigation, then you expanded the investigation into other issues by those connected to the Trump campaign?
    *
    3. Is it normal for a prosecutor not to question the authenticity and accuracty of documents provided by investigators in a criminal complaint.
    *
    4. Just when did you realize that there was no evidence that candidate Trump was connected to any illegal activity relating to Russian hacking of the 2016 election?
    *
    5. When you first realized there was no evidence against President Trump did you notify rosenstein, did you notify President Trump that there was nothing for him to worry about?
    *
    6. Once you knew there was no connection between Trump and Russia why did you continue to investigate and demand that he testify, was it in order to trap him into committing perjury?
    *
    7. You indicted Russian citizens and companies knowing that you could never bring them to trial or force them to come here and stand trial, why did you not look into indicting Christopher Steele for his taking part in developing this dossier for the purpose of interfering in our 2016 election?
    *
    Anyone wonder why mueller does not want to answer anymore questions?

      • Yeah…exactly what “bogus talking points” are you refering to? We ain’t asking you to type them, just write the number(s) that you think are “bogus”…Mueller may think he isn’t going to answer questions, but I think the Senate Judiciary Committee will be having the last word on that…I’d give this two-faced lying SOB about 24 hours to unpack his “civilian life” suitcase before I’d issue a subpeona and haul his lying, greedy, scaredy cat, bias ass before the Committee, and see how he perjures himself…Let’s see how Robert “Jesus Christ” Mueller does under oath…He wouldn’t know the truth if it bit him in the ass…and I’m confident that there are enough Senators on the Judiciary Committee are going to prove that…The Democrat/Liberal Party better hope that Mueller has adequate answers or their god and saviour is going to be looking at his paradise from behind bars also…Mueller committed enough “due process” crimes under Special Counsel guise to indict him and half or more of his team, under bias based probes and inquiries….Yeah Mueller, my advice to you, is that your whole investigation leads right back to you and your fake dossier, and your corrupt and biased attorneys, and you might consider a plane trip to Argentina, or maybe Cuba to save your lying ass…!

  5. He’s wrong you can to charge a sitting President with a crime. Let’s say Trump killed someone in the Rose Garden, he would be charged with Murder.
    So Mueller found nothing!

  6. I’m still GREATELY CONFUSED how do you obstruct justice when it has been PROVEN that NO CRIME WAS COMMITTED. Jurors EXONORATE not prosecutors or judges. Although maybe high and mighty DUMOCRATS can.

  7. I forgot to add this. The special Prosecutor was appointed to investigate the Crime of Collusion with the Russians. But there is no such ‘Crime as Collusion?’ When does ‘The Poison Tree’ enter into this mess? And when does the courts start tossing out all these indictments and convictions as Fruit of the poison tree?

  8. Nadler should be extra careful at picking his words when he speaks. He’s right about one thing though. NO ONE is above the Law and that should also include HRC and Obama. One day everything that has been said to destroy President Trump WILL come back and bite them in the ass BIG time.

  9. Uranium one is going to bite you in the ass bob.so is your unprofessional behavior. Time to suck some presidential ass

  10. Hilliary and Obama committed questionable acts but were never even allowed to be investigated. If anyone is crooked is these two people and their associates. Maybe now we can get the truth about them.

  11. Read the report, Mueller said, and the Russians interfered with the election. I am reading the report, and Barr lied.

  12. There was never NOT the option to say you thought he he was guilty of a crime. That is not prohibited by the DOJ policy. Fess up and admit you have no evidence that Trump Colluded the only evidence you have which is skimpy is that Russia did something. Mueller your goal from the get go was to tie a can on Trump’s tail and you failed so you came up with this BS.

    • Yeah…the day after the inauguration they started talking “removing, or impeaching” President Trump…Mueller is a lying SOB because he could to have brought an indictment against President Trump, and he was to chicken-shit to do it…WHY? Because he already knew from the get-go that this whole Investigation was based on pure bullshit…He could have issued a subpeona(Starr did to President Clinton)but he was to chicken-shit to do it…Nadler indeed needs to choose his words very decidedly, because his ass could very well be indicted for “process crimes” committed against the President, and false accusations are prosecutable under felony laws…Him and Schiff(evidence of collusion) are guilty of these crimes so indeed his mouth just might be over-loading his lard barrel ass…And if somebody called me out as lying I would damn sure drag their ass into court…!!!

  13. It’s been a long and tortious road but, I am still looking forward to seeing all of Hillary’s co-conspirators arrested, tried and jailed at Gitmo.

  14. Mueller is one of the BIGGEST PUSSIES to ever work for the FBI or CIA. He has no back bone for The Truth , or Doing the right thing. He should have been helping the president by telling the Honest to Gods Truth in his report. But he turned into a PUSSY. Instead of helping to make The United States of America GREAT AGAIN. Why they put so much praise into him I will never know, He is a WASTE of SKIN.
