Mueller Report Update: Trump not to be prosecuted, no exoneration either

    0

    Mueller Report was given Congress by Attorney General William Barr this Sunday morning. Barr revealed that there is no evidence that the President conspired with Russia to influence the 2016 elections.

    However, the report fell just short of exonerating Donald Trump.

    “While this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him,” Barr said.

    Shortly after, Trump tweeted a conflicting version stating, “No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!”

    Barr wrote a 4-page summary of the Mueller report in the letter to the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee in the US Congress.

    On the question of collusion with the Russian government during the elections, Barr wrote that there was “no conclusion — one way or another,” leaving it up to the Attorney General to determine “whether the conduct described in the report constitutes a crime.”

    He also stated that there was not enough evidence to establish whether President Trump had obstructed justice.

    However, this is not a free pass to the Republican Government.

    House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler tweeted earlier this morning. He tweeted that the Government would need to prove “beyond a reasonable doubt” that there was no obstruction of justice committed at the hands of the President.

    He also said he would be asking the Attorney General to testify. This because of “the very concerning discrepancies” in the summary.
