William Barr just shut down Robert Mueller’s big plan to impeach Trump
Robert Mueller finally called his shot.
The special counsel made his most public call yet to remove Donald Trump from office.
But then William Barr went on TV and shut down Robert Mueller’s big plan to impeach Donald Trump.
During his outrageous and highly controversial press conference, Robert Mueller declared his office could not reach a conclusion on obstruction of justice because Department of Justice guidelines prevented the indictment of a sitting President.
Mueller used this excuse to fill a report with smears and character assassinations concerning ten instances of the President supposedly obstructing justice, even though Mueller refused to bring charges.
In an interview with CBS News, reporter Jan Crawford asked the Attorney General about Mueller’s decision.
Barr called it nonsense.
In an interview with “CBS This Morning,” Attorney General William Barr said Special counsel Robert Mueller could have decided on whether President Donald Trump committed obstruction of justice.
Barr said, “I personally felt he could’ve reached a decision…He could have reached a conclusion. The opinion says you cannot indict a president while he is in office, but he could’ve reached a decision as to whether it was criminal activity. But he had his reasons for not doing it, which he explained and I am not going to, you know, argue about those reasons.”
Mueller did not want to reach a conclusion because he knew he had no case.
Instead, he shifted the fight to Congress, where there is no legal standard for impeachment.
Impeachment is a political question.
The Attorney General saw through Mueller’s shady dealings and called him out on it.
