Robert Mueller blows up Trump’s talking point of innocence: Says his report does NOT exonerate POTUS

Ever since the report from Special Counsel Robert Mueller was completed and handed to Attorney General William Barr, President Donald Trump has repeatedly claimed that he has been completely exonerated by the Russia investigation.

But as Mueller himself explained Wednesday morning in his testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, his report did NOT exonerate the president.

Mueller was asked by House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY):

“The president has repeatedly claimed that your report found there was no obstruction and that it completely and totally exonerated him. But that is not what your report said, is it?”

The special counsel replied:

“Correct. That is not what the report said.”

Nadler then followed up:

“Did you actually totally exonerate the president?”

Mueller also remarked:

“The president was not exculpated for the acts that he allegedly committed.”

Shortly before Mueller’s testimony began, Trump railed on Twitter, suggesting that he was being wrongly accused of things he didn’t do:

Trump has not been exonerated by Mueller or the Russia investigation. The only reason he wasn’t indicted is because he’s a sitting president. But he can still be removed via impeachment.
