“If we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said that,” Mueller said. “We did not determine whether the president did commit a crime.”
Mueller explained longstanding Justice Department policy, which states that a sitting president cannot be charged with a crime.
“Charging the president with a crime was not an option we could consider,” Mueller explained, adding that “it would be unfair to accuse someone of a crime when there could be no court resolution of the charge.”
“The Constitution requires a process other than the criminal justice system to formally accuse the president of wrongdoing,” Mueller said Wednesday, echoing his report which states that Congress “may apply obstruction laws to the President’s corrupt exercise of the powers of office accords with our constitutional system of checks and balances and the principle that no person is above the law.”
The Russians hacking US servers innocent until proven guilty yet trump is guilty and not exonerated until proven innocent t which Mueller claims he did not prove.
“It would be unfair to potentially accuse somebody of a crime when there can be no court resolution of the actual charge,” Mueller said.
The report itself proves that Mueller and his team don’t believe it’s unfair to accuse somebody of something a court cannot resolve.
People need to watch this video. This SOB just decided to strut out in front of the cameras to drop a bomb to change the narrative from declass to implicating POTUS in obstruction. Saying the reason he didn’t charge Trump was because it was not within his guidelines. He suggested Congress discipline him instead, meaning IMPEACHMENT!
Furthermore, he will not appear before Congress to protect HIMSELF. There are questions he does not want to answer!
It is quite obvious that he wanted to find a way to fuel the impeachment narrative without answering very basic questions. He may have done that. The House is going to take the partial win and run with Impeachment. The Senate will probably cuck-out – because that is what they do.
The process is started by a two-thirds majority vote of the Parliament to impeach the President, whereupon the Constitutional Court decides whether the President is guilty of the crime of which he is charged. If he is found guilty, he is removed from power.
I doubt Mueller will be called. I do believe they will use the Mueller Report as “evidence”. Or at least, they will mention parts of it. But I don’t see any witnesses for the defense. Unless, they call Comey, Brennan and/or Andrew McCabe. Maybe even possibly Page and Strzok. Even that, they will start throwing each other under the bus.
Mueller’s speech was disgraceful in terms of having the integrity of law and a practitioner of it. It is not a prosecutors job to declare ones innocence or exonerate one yet he made the statement: "If we had confidence after a thorough investigation of the facts that the president clearly did not commit obstruction of justice, we would so state.” In other words Mueller’s reputation was one he was willing to sacrifice on the alter of the deep state who now has impetus to pursue impeachment proceedings against a President who is aligned against their interests. Now Mueller quietly retreats to the sunset of anonymity for the sake of avoiding any public scrutiny of his dark dealings with unsavory characters who no doubt hatched up this plan to undermine the will of the people with sinister motives, or for that matter to avoid legal jeopardy himself for his past dealings such as Uranium One and the Russian connection that he himself was a willingly accomplice in the parlor games of DC and special interests of the oligarchs.
