NEWS BULLETIN: Robert Mueller testifies Trump can be indicted


July 24, 2019: NEWS BULLETIN

Robert Mueller testifies
Mueller "indicts" Trump

Cody Fenwick in AlterNet reports...
"In his report, Mueller laid out extensive evidence that President Donald Trump obstructed justice. But because the Department of Justice’s Office of Legal Counsel has determined that a sitting president cannot be indicted, Mueller said that his office didn’t make a prosecutorial judgment about whether to bring such a charge and that he would, in principle, refuse to say that he would have brought such charges under other circumstances."
Later...
"Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) asked Mueller point-blank: 'The reason, again, that you did not indict Donald Trump is because of the OLC opinion stating that you cannot indict a sitting president, correct?'”
This is something he has steadfastly refused to acknowledge. And yet Mueller answered without hesitation: “That is correct.”
