Mueller goes on the teletubby, froths with da mout, speaks with forked tongue. Mueller spent 40 million and found zero, nada, UGATZ and all the rest. Mueller was a
Mueller and we quote says “
The key sentence: “If we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime we would have said so. We did not, however, make a determination as to whether the president did commit a crime.” (ISN’T THAT WHAT HE WAS INVESTIGATING – CRIMES SUPPOSEDLY COMMITTED BY THE PREZ?)
The reason: Mueller decided he was bound by an old memo from the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel concluding that a sitting president can’t be indicted.
“Charging the president with a crime was therefore not an option we could consider,” he said.
If Mueller took the view from the start that he couldn’t bring charges against an Oval Office incumbent, why have a costly, two-year investigation in the first place?
By this logic, as Brit Hume has pointed out, if Mueller had found evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, he couldn’t have said so. He could only report it if he found no collusion, as he ultimately did.
