Former Department of Justice spokesman Matthew Miller on Wednesday said special counsel Robert Mueller’s statement about his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election was an “implicit rebuke” of Attorney General Bill Barr.
While appearing on MSNBC, Miller outlined the ways that Mueller’s statement contradicted Barr’s initial four-page summary of his investigation’s final report.
“I think both on the Russian collusion side of the investigation and the obstruction side, he contradicted things that the attorney general has said,” Miller explained. “On obstruction… when Bill Barr held his press conference releasing the report, he was asked point blank did the special counsel not make a determination because he thought it ought to be left to Congress. Barr said, ‘I hope that’s not what he’s doing,’ it’s the job of prosecutors to make the determinations.”
Miller pointed out, though, that Mueller said that he was clearly constrained by Department of Justice policies against indicting sitting presidents.
“I thought Mueller made very clear in his statement that the Constitution leaves that question to Congress for a sitting president,” he said.

Talk show host absolutely destroys Trump-loving caller: ‘You’re on national radio having your pants pulled down!’
A British talk show host completely flummoxed a caller who warned that four Democratic congresswomen attacked by President Donald Trump were trying to create a socialist country.
The caller, who identified himself as Stuart, called the representatives "left-wing extremists" who were trying to "change American politics from within," and LBC host James O'Brien pointed out that was what Trump promised he would do as president.
Stuart claimed Trump was restoring American capitalism after it was destroyed by Barack Obama, and O'Brien reminded the caller that a record streak economic expansion had begun well before the current president was in office -- which he flatly rejected.
