Special counsel Robert Mueller just stirred things up in Washington.
Making his first public statement on the investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election, nearly everything Mueller said in the ten minute speech will have consequences.
One such excerpt is mueller shared that his investigation could not charge the president with a crime because they considered it unconstitutional.
However he clearly stated that this was not an exoneration of President Trump.
“If we had had confidence that the president had clearly not committed a crime we would have said so,” said Mueller, adding, “Charging the president with a crime is not an option we could consider.”
If that wasn’t shocking enough, Mueller followed by announcing that he would be resigning from his position within the Department of Justice.
He declared he would not testify before Congress on the issue and that his report WAS his testimony.
