All hell broke loose when Robert Mueller used one word to describe Donald Trump
Pundits have speculated for months about whether Robert Mueller would charge Donald Trump with a crime.
Mueller gave a peek as to what the answer would be.
And all hell broke loose when he used this one word to describe Donald Trump.
Mueller recently met with Trump’s lawyers about working to set up an interview with the President.
During the get together, Mueller revealed that Trump was just a “subject” and not a “target” of the investigation.
Americans have known since last March that the FBI was investigating the President, but being a subject means Mueller doesn’t have the evidence to change Trump with a crime.
The Washington Post reports:
“Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III informed President Trump’s attorneys last month that he is continuing to investigate the president but does not consider him a criminal target at this point, according to three people familiar with the discussions.
In private negotiations in early March about a possible presidential interview, Mueller described Trump as a subject of his investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election. Prosecutors view someone as a subject when that person has engaged in conduct that is under investigation but there is not sufficient evidence to bring charges.
The special counsel also told Trump’s lawyers that he is preparing a report about the president’s actions while in office and potential obstruction of justice, according to two people with knowledge of the conversations.”
This is a positive development for the President.
It means that after 11 months of investigations, Mueller has come up empty on proving Trump either conspired with the Russians or obstructed justice.
