Robert Mueller resigns as special counsel, says charging Trump was never an option 4.5
Special counsel Robert Mueller announced his resignation from the Department of Justice and officially closed the investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 election during his final statement on the matter on Wednesday.

Mueller said charging U.S. President Donald Trump was ‘not an option' because of long-standing guidelines that state that the president cannot be charged with a crime while in office.

Mueller's report into Russia meddling in the 2016 election did not find that Russia and the Trump campaign co-ordinated to sway the presidential election. It did not reach a conclusion on whether the president had obstructed justice.

Resign doesn't mean you can't be arrested for fraud. You can't hide Mueller.

[Timestamps] You're welcome (all *emphasis* is mine, added for ease of skimming)

0:00 it *begins* ; Mueller walks on stage

1:14 appointment order ( *inditement allegations* )

3:33 first volume of the report (details *numerous efforts from russia to influence the election*, a discussion of the *Trump campaign's response* to that activity, concludes there was *insufficient evidence* to charge a broader conspiracy)

3:56 second volume of the report (describes the results and analysis of the *obstruction of justice* investigation involving trump, if they were confident that the president didnt commit a crime they would have said so but *did not make a determination* as to whether trump did commit a crime or not)

4:38 introduction to volume two (explains that *the president cannot be charged* with a federal crime while he is in office as it would be unconstitutional)

5:12 "charging the president with a crime was therefore *not an option* we could consider."

6:18 "it would be *unfair* to potentially accuse somebody of a crime when *there can be no court resolution* of the actual charge"

7:33 says *he won't speak further* and testimony won't go beyond the report as " *the work speaks for itself* " and "the report is [his] testimony" and he " *would not provide information* beyond that which is already public in any appearance before congress".

8:35 " *I do not believe it is appropriate for me to speak further* about the investigation or to comment on the actions of the justice department or congress"

8:48 *thanks* to those who worked with the special counsel

9:12 Mueller closes by "reiterating the allegation of the inditements that there were *multiple systematic efforts to interfere in our election* and that allegation deserves the attention of every american"




edit: they chopped off the first 10 minutes of nothing so I had to get all the timestamps again... may not be perfect.

Now crookedH knows what happened, Mueller colluded with Russia to bring down her 2016 campaign.

"We could not say he didn't commit a crime", we also could not say he did commit a crime or they would have.. Clever selective wording. Russia tried to influence the election has turned magically into Russia interfered with the election. Those two words do not mean the same thing, not even close. But the media wants you to believe Mueller said interfered when clearly he did not. Some members of Congress have changed influenced into interfered as well.


No matter what Nancy presents, the Senate will not find Trump guilty of Collusion or obstruction of Justice. If Trump cannot be indicted for things he has done, he has not stepped out of bounds. Indicted and arrested, as you know, are two different things altogether.
