Three key moments from Mueller’s testimony
Special Counsel Robert Mueller testified before the House Judiciary Committee this morning on his investigation and report. Here are the three big takeaways:
MUELLER DEBUNKS TRUMP’S “TOTAL EXONERATION” CLAIM: Mueller clearly stated that his report did NOT exonerate Trump of crimes.
OBSTRUCTION: Mueller said that Trump could be charged with obstruction of justice after he leaves office.
INDICTMENT: Mueller said that—contrary to what Attorney General William Barr said when he lied to the public—he did not indict Trump because of the OLC opinion stating that you can’t indict a sitting president.
These three points expose Trump, Attorney General Barr, and Congressional Republicans’ smear campaign for what it is: a complete sham designed to protect Trump from accountability at the expense of our democracy and national security.
