Mueller says Congress has authority to conduct obstruction probes

mueller obstruction


He is expected to depart the White House via Marine One on Thursday just hours after a redacted version of special counsel Robert S. Mueller IIIs report is released and possibly take reporters questions about it. While this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime Mueller wrote. the mainstream narrative of the mueller report has already congealed. We already have the language where the Barr excerpts from the Mueller report states they could not establish any tacit or explicit coordination or collusion. As America waits for the redacted release of special counsel Robert Muellers report too. Attorney General Bill Barrs language in his summary of the Mueller report regarding obstruction of justice was very vague and some readings of it suggest that although the special counsel chose not to prosecute the president for obstruction there may well be evidence of it in the report. Nonetheless the VP told CNN the day after Comey was fired that hed been terminated based on the recommendation of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein the same talking point used by the White House to justify the firing. Barr described the section of the report dealing with potential obstruction of justice along with legal theories that might suggest they constituted obstruction of justice. Apart from whether the acts were obstructive this evidence of non corrupt motives weighs heavily against any allegation that the president had a corrupt intent to obstruct the investigation
