Two Mueller prosecutors believe they had ‘sufficient evidence’ to criminally charge Trump with obstruction

Published

on

Sources with knowledge of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation have told journalist Murray Waas that at least two prosecutors on Mueller’s team believe they had enough evidence to charge President Donald Trump with criminal obstruction of justice — but they didn’t do so because of the Department of Justice’s policy that a sitting president cannot be indicted.

According to Waas, the prosecutors told officials at the Department of Justice that “had it not been for the unique nature of the case — the investigation of a sitting president of the United States, and one who tried to use the powers of his office to thwart and even close down the special counsel’s investigation — they would have advocated that he face federal criminal charges.”

Mueller’s report specifically states that it would have exonerated Trump of obstruction if it felt it could do so — and then pointedly declined to exonerate him.

The report also outlined multiple instances in which Trump may have obstructed justice, including his orders to White House counsel Don McGahn to fire Mueller and his order to henchman Corey Lewandowski to tell then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions to retract his recusal from the Russia probe.

"Because Nancy’s teeth were falling out of her mouth, and she didn’t have time to think!" Trump tweeted in response to a video from the press conference.
