Attorney General William Barr is at the center of a political and legal storm.
Robert Mueller put the heat on Barr by making it clear he believed Trump obstructed justice and should be removed from office.
And now William Barr left Donald Trump speechless with this fact about impeachment.
Mueller turned Washington upside down by making a public spectacle of his findings with a press conference and a call for Congress to impeach the President.
The special counsel made it clear Mueller and his team believed President Trump obstructed justice by outrageously claiming the President was guilty until proven innocent and that he could not “exonerate” Donald Trump.
Mueller claimed his team made no determination on obstruction of justice because the Department of Justice guidelines prevent the indictment of a sitting President.
“It explains that under long-standing Department policy, a President cannot be charged with a federal crime while he is in office. That is unconstitutional. Even if the charge is kept under seal and hidden from public view—that too is prohibited,”Mueller continued.
“The Special Counsel’s Office is part of the Department of Justice and, by regulation, it was bound by that Department policy. Charging the President with a crime was therefore not an option we could consider.”
This was a cop out.
Mueller didn’t have a case on obstruction of justice.
