James Comey says the Justice Departments findings on Russia is good news no matter what

russia comey

TL;DR

Former FBI chief James Comey has said he is confused by Muellers findings on obstruction of justice after the Russia probe wrapped up. A summary of Robert Muellers report was published by Attorney General William Barr on Sunday which found no evidence of collusion by the Trump campaign with Russians. But Comey said he was confused about Muellers position neither to charge nor exonerate President Donald Trump over obstruction of justice. Comey also told the audience he found Barrs legal position really confusing in determining the President could not be charged with obstruction of justice. Trump has repeatedly labelled it the Russia hoax and joyously welcomed the findings at the White House on Sunday. Former FBI Director James Comey defended investigations into ties between the Trump campaign and Russia adding to do otherwise would amount to hypocrisy. And during that election an Obama aide meets with the Iranians and talks about the dirt they have that will help Obama get elected. Trump campaign officials were also offered dirt on Hillary Clintons campaign by Russians though it was unconfirmed whether Trump himself accepted the information. I didnt know what answer the special counsel would arrive at Comey said to NBC anchor Lester Holt. On Sunday and whether Trump had obstructed justice
