Robert Mueller Tells Congress His Report Did Not Exonerate Trump

HeadlineJul 25, 2019

Special counsel Robert Mueller testified on Capitol Hill Wednesday for the first time about his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential elections. Over seven hours of hearings, Mueller stressed to the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees that despite Donald Trump’s claims, he had not exonerated the president of obstruction of justice. This is House Judiciary Chair Jerrold Nadler questioning Mueller.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler: “So, the report did not conclude that he did not commit obstruction of justice. Is that correct?”

Robert Mueller: “That is correct.”

Rep. Jerrold Nadler: “And what about total exoneration? Did you actually totally exonerate the president?”

Robert Mueller: “No.”

Rep. Jerrold Nadler: “Now, in fact, your report expressly states that it does not exonerate the president.”

Robert Mueller: “It does.”

We’ll have more on Robert Mueller’s congressional testimony later in the broadcast with Ryan Grim, D.C. bureau chief for The Intercept.
