Mueller Speaks Publicly About the Special Counsel Investigation
May 30, 2019 at 02:15 PM

The Quick Facts

  • Yesterday, Special Counsel Robert Mueller spoke publicly for the first time about his Russia investigation, delivering his remarks with a televised statement.
  • Mueller used the statement to emphasize that his investigation did not exonerate President Trump, saying that if his team was confident the president did not commit a crime, they would have said so.
  • He also said that indicting the president was something he and his team could not consider, because the Justice Department prohibits the prosecution of a sitting president.
  • Mueller indicated that he would like the report to speak for itself, suggesting that if Congress calls him to testify, he will not provide new information.
  • In the statement, the Special Counsel said his work is complete and that he will now be resigning to return to private life.

Food For Thought

How should the public interpret Mueller’s public statement yesterday? Will it influence congressional Democrats’ decision on whether or not to open impeachment proceedings?
