Robert Mueller breaks silence to insist he did not exonerate Trump | US news

1 Share
Robert Mueller, the special counsel, on Wednesday reignited demands for Donald Trump’s impeachment by breaking his two-year silence to deny that the US president is innocent of a crime.
In a sudden and dramatic turn, Mueller, whose report on Russian election interference and Trump campaign links to Moscow was published last month, delivered a sombre nine-minute statement that many construed as a signal to Congress to act on his finding that Trump sought to obstruct justice.
“If we had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said that,” Mueller said from a podium at the justice department in his first public remarks since the investigation began. “We did not, however, make a determination as to whether the president did commit a crime.”
Mueller explained that his decision was based on longstanding justice department policy, rather than lack of evidence.
“A president cannot be charged with a federal crime while he is in office,” he said. “That is unconstitutional. Even if the charge is kept under seal and hidden from public view – that too is prohibited.”
The special counsel’s 448-page report did not establish a criminal conspiracy between the Trump election campaign and Russia. It did identify 10 incidents in which the president attempted to obstruct justice, for example by firing the director of the FBI, though it stopped short of charging the president with a crime.
His statement on Wednesday contradicted Trump’s claims that Mueller’s report awarded him “total exoneration” and also William Barr’s bald assertion last month that Mueller’s decision was not based on justice department policy.
Mueller explained: “The special counsel’s office is part of the Department of Justice and, by regulation, it was bound by that department policy. Charging the president with a crime was therefore not an option we could consider.”
Less than half an hour later, Trump tweeted in response: “Nothing changes from the Mueller report. There was insufficient evidence and therefore, in our country, a person is innocent. The case is closed! Thank you.”
But others interpreted Mueller’s intervention as a not-so-subtle message that, while his hands had been tied by department policy, Congress’s are not. Calls for Trump’s impeachment, circulating for weeks, rapidly turned into a clamour, with several Democratic candidates for president leading the way.
Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey said: “We have one remaining path to ensure justice is served. It is our legal and moral obligation to hold those who have committed crimes accountable. It’s clear that the House must begin impeachment proceedings. No one is above the law.”
Senator Kamala Harris of California tweeted: “What Robert Mueller basically did was return an impeachment referral. Now it is up to Congress to hold this president accountable. We need to start impeachment proceedings. It’s our constitutional obligation.”
Mueller’s statement was “an impeachment referral, and it’s up to Congress to act,” Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts tweeted.
And Beto O’Rourke, another Democratic presidential contender, added: “There must be consequences, accountability, and justice. The only way to ensure that is to begin impeachment proceedings.”
But first the burden lies with the House of Representatives, where the judiciary committee is leading oversight efforts. Its chairman, Democrat Jerry Nadler, stopped short of urging impeachment or calling for Mueller to testify.
He said: “Given that Mueller was unable to pursue criminal charges against the president, it falls to Congress to respond to the crimes, lies and other wrongdoing of President Trump – and we will do so. No one, not even the president of the United States, is above the law.”
The House speaker, Nancy Pelosi, has so far resisted calls for impeachment, a difficult strategic calculation. If passed by the Democratic majority in the House, it would almost certainly fail in the Republican-controlled Senate, leaving Trump in office and possibly strengthened going into next year’s presidential election.
Pelosi said on Wednesday: “The Congress will continue to investigate and legislate to protect our elections and secure our democracy. The American people must have the truth.”
For their part, Republicans were mostly silent, suggesting that Mueller’s intervention had changed nothing about their support for the president.
Lindsey Graham, the Republican chairman of the Senate judiciary committee, said: “Today’s statement by Mr Mueller reinforces the findings of his report. And as for me, the case is over. Mr Mueller has decided to move on and let the report speak for itself. Congress should follow his lead.”
But one House Republican has recently defied the party line to emerge as an outspoken critic of the president. Justin Amash, from Michigan, tweeted: “The ball is in our court, Congress.”
Democrats in the House, whose subpoenas are being resisted by the White House, are pushing for Mueller to testify in person. On Wednesday Mueller made clear he has little desire to appear and, if obliged, he will have nothing to add to what is already stated in his report.
“We chose those words carefully, and the work speaks for itself,” he said gravely. “The report is my testimony. I would not provide information beyond that which is already public in any appearance before Congress.”
Mueller, who is closing his special counsel office, also defended the FBI and the integrity of the investigation, which have been under constant assault from the president and his rightwing allies.
And he emphasised that the first volume of his report, which details Russia’s attack on American democracy, deserves urgent attention despite the Washington’s partisan firestorms and Trump’s repeated attempts to ignore it or play it down.
“There were multiple, systematic efforts to interfere in our election,” he said, “and that allegation deserves the attention of every American.”

Gregg Jarrett: The two faces of Robert Mueller, and Trump's presumption of guilt

Robert Mueller: Charging the president with a crime was not an option we could consider

Speaking publicly for first time since the release of Russia report, special counsel Robert Mueller says there were 'multiple, systematic efforts' to interfere with the presidential election, that his team found insufficient evidence to charge a broader conspiracy, and that if there was confidence that the president did not commit a crime, the report would have said so.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller has peddled two different stories. Only one can be true. 
In his final act before resigning his position, Mueller told the gathered media on Wednesday that his non-decision decision on whether the president obstructed justice was “informed” by a long-standing opinion by the Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) at the Justice Department that a sitting president cannot be charged with a crime. But according to William Barr, that’s not what Mueller told the attorney general and others during a meeting on March 5, 2017. Here’s what Barr told Senators during his May 1st testimony:
“We were frankly surprised that they were not going to reach a decision on obstruction and we asked them a lot about the reasoning behind this. Mueller stated three times to us in that meeting, in response to our questioning, that he emphatically was not saying that but for the OLC opinion he would have found obstruction.”  
Barr said there were others in the meeting who heard Mueller say the same thing – that the OLC opinion played no role in the special counsel’s decision-making or lack thereof. The attorney general repeated this in his news conference the day Mueller’s report was released to the public:
“We specifically asked him about the OLC opinion and whether or not he was taking a position that he would have found a crime but for the existence of the OLC opinion. And he made it very clear several times that was not his position.”
Yet, on Wednesday Mueller was telling a different tale. He seemed to argue that he could not have accused the president of obstruction because he was handcuffed by the OLC opinion.  Why, then, did Mueller allegedly inform Barr that a special counsel can abandon the opinion if the facts merit it?
“He (Mueller) said that in the future the facts of a case against a president might be such that a special counsel would recommend abandoning the OLC opinion, but this is not such a case.”   
Mueller did not abandon the OLC opinion in this case because he surely knew the facts and evidence did not support the law of obstruction. Instead, in his 448-page report, he implied presidential obstruction in a remarkable achievement in creative writing.
He set forth in luxurious detail “evidence on both sides of the question.” But this is not the job of any chief prosecutor, anywhere.
Mueller was not retained to compose a masterpiece worthy of Proust. He was hired to investigate potential crimes arising from Russian interference in a presidential election and make a reasoned decision on whether charges were merited. 
Mueller’s actions were not only noxious but patently unfair to Trump.  The special counsel publicly besmirched the president with tales of suspicious behavior instead of stated evidence that rose to the level of criminality. 
Mueller’s actions were not only noxious, but patently unfair to Trump.  The special counsel publicly besmirched the president with tales of suspicious behavior instead of stated evidence that rose to the level of criminality. 
This is what prosecutors are never permitted to do. Justice Department rules forbid its lawyers from annunciating negative narratives about any person, absent an indictment. 
How can that person properly defend himself without trial? This is why prosecutors like Mueller are prohibited from trying their cases in the court of public opinion.
If they have probable cause to levy charges, they should do so.  If not, they must refrain from openly disparaging someone that our justice system presumes is innocent.
In this regard, Mueller shrewdly and improperly turned the law on its head. Consider the most inflammatory statement that he leveled at the president in his report. It was guaranteed to ignite the impeachment fire:
“While this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.”     
To reinforce the point, Mueller stated it twice in his report. He then reiterated the argument on Wednesday when he said: “if we had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so.”
Prosecutors are not, and have never been, in the business of exonerating people. That’s not their job. 
An experienced federal prosecutor, Mueller certainly knew this. It appears he had no intention of treating Trump equitably or applying the law in conformance with our criminal justice system.
In a singular sentence, Mueller managed to reverse the legal duty that prosecutors have rigidly followed in America for centuries.  Their legal obligation is not to exonerate someone or prove an individual’s innocence.  Nor is any accused person required to prove his or her own innocence.
Everyone is entitled to the presumption of innocence.  It is the bedrock on which justice is built. 
Prosecutors must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. To bring charges they must have, at minimum, probable cause to believe that a crime was committed. 
The special counsel took this inviolate principle and cleverly inverted it. He argued that he could not prove the president did not commit a crime.
Think about what that rationale really means. It is a double negative. Mueller was contending that he can’t prove something didn’t happen.
What if this were the standard for all criminal investigations? Apply it to yourself.
Let’s say you deposited your paycheck at the bank on Monday, the same day it’s robbed.  A prosecutor then announces publicly that he cannot prove you didn’t rob the bank, so you are neither criminally accused nor “exonerated.” 
The burden of proof has now been shifted to you to disprove the negative. How would you feel? You’ve been maligned with the taint of criminality and no longer enjoy the presumption of innocence. 
This is the equivalent of what Mueller did to Trump. The special counsel created the impression that Trump might have engaged in wrongdoing because he could not prove otherwise. 
The consequential injustice and harm that inevitably follows is what happens when we reverse the burden of proof and abandon the innocence standard that are revered in a democracy as fundamental rights. 
Yet, this is what Mueller did. He improvised a new standard that applies only to Trump --presumption of guilt. Under this novel “guilty until proven innocent” paradigm, it is up to the president to prove the allegations are false. 
Attorney General Barr recognized that Mueller had mangled the legal process, describing his statement as “actually a very strange statement.”
Barr told Congress that he was forced to correct Mueller’s mistake. “I used the proper standard,” said Barr. “We are not in the business of proving someone did not violate the law –I found that whole passage very bizarre,” he added.       
Our system of justice in America is designed to protect the innocent. This is why there are laws that prevent disclosure of grand jury testimony and even more expansive rules at the Justice Department that prohibit prosecutors from disclosing derogatory information about uncharged individuals. It is, in a word, unfair to smear people who have not been charged with anything.
Mueller was well aware of this. In the “introduction” to Volume II on obstruction, he recited the duty of prosecutors to be fair by refraining from comment. In the case of a sitting president, wrote Mueller, “The stigma and opprobrium could imperil the President’s ability to govern.”
Ironically, the special counsel then proceeded to ignore his own warning.  He produced his own “dossier” on Trump that was filled with suspicions of wrongdoing. 
He refused to make a decision to charge the president in a court of law but was more than willing to indict him in the court of public opinion. 
His report was a non-indictment indictment. It was calumny masquerading as a report.

Mueller emphasizes that he didn't clear Trump

'If we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so,' the special counsel said.
Updated
Special counsel Robert Mueller on Wednesday said he did not want to testify before Congress about his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, setting up a potential clash with House Democrats.
But Mueller also sparked a new round of impeachment calls after stressing, this time in person, that he could not clear President Donald Trump of obstruction charges.
Story Continued Below
His remarks were the first time the public had heard from Mueller after two years, 199 criminal charges and 37 indictments. Mueller, who said on Wednesday that he was resigning and closing down the special counsel’s office, delivered the statement more than two months after he submitted his 448-page final report on the 22-month Russia investigation.
“I hope and expect this to be the only time that I will speak to you in this manner. I am making that decision myself,” Mueller said in remarks on camera at the Justice Department.
“Any testimony from this office would not go beyond our report,” he added. “The report is my testimony.”
But Mueller — inadvertently or not — seemed to hand off to Congress the issue of whether the president should be held accountable for attempting to obstruct the Russia probe. Mueller’s report lays out several instances of attempts to stymie federal investigators without saying whether those actions rose to the level of a crime.
“If we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so,” he noted. “We did not, however, make a determination as to whether the president did commit a crime.”
In explaining his decision, Mueller seemed to nod to Congress’s power to launch impeachment proceedings.
“The Constitution requires a process other than the criminal justice system to formally accuse a sitting president of wrongdoing,” said Mueller, who did not take questions.
The rare statement came amid negotiations between Mueller’s team and the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees for him to testify publicly about his findings — talks that have faltered in recent weeks as Mueller has sought clarity from the Justice Department on the boundaries of his would-be testimony.
Mueller's remarks will likely now put the onus on House Democrats to decide whether they want to subpoena Mueller to talk, a move that would put the two sides on a legal collision course.
Democrats sent mixed signals about their plans after Mueller spoke. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said Mueller "needs to testify before Congress," but House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler was more cagey.
"Mr. Mueller told us a lot of what we needed to hear today,” he said at an afternoon press conference.
Several Democrats said on Wednesday that Mueller was effectively handing things off to Congress, raising anew the specter of impeachment. Nadler, who was given a heads up before Mueller’s statement, said in a statement afterward that it now “falls to Congress to respond to the crimes, lies and other wrongdoing of President Trump — and we will do so.” But pressed specifically about impeachment at his press conference, Nadler would only say that “all options are on the table and nothing should be ruled out."
Others were more direct.
Justin Amash, the lone Republican lawmaker advocating for launching impeachment proceedings, tweeted: “The ball is in our court, Congress.”
Story Continued Below
Most Republicans appeared unmoved, however. "It is time to move on from the investigation and start focusing on real solutions for the American people,” said Republican Doug Collins, the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee.
The White House was notified on Tuesday night that Mueller might make a statement on Wednesday and was not caught off-guard by the announcement. President Donald Trump monitored the comments from the White House, and tweeted later that “nothing changes” as a result of Mueller’s comments.
“There was insufficient evidence and therefore, in our Country, a person is innocent. The case is closed! Thank you,” he tweeted.
Trump’s personal attorney Jay Sekulow said Mueller’s announcement “puts a period on a two-year investigation that produced no findings of collusion or obstruction against the President.”
Sekulow’s statement contrasts with what Mueller actually said on Wednesday, when he again outlined the findings that were out in two separate volumes of his final report. The first section outlined the campaign’s contacts with Russia but determined “that there was insufficient evidence to charge a broader conspiracy” between the two sides, Mueller said. The second section discussed Trump’s efforts to interfere in the Russia investigation but declined to either indict or exonerate Trump on possible obstruction of justice charges.
Mueller said that because of longstanding DOJ policy that a sitting president could not be indicted, it was “not an option” to charge Trump. But Mueller alluded to “a process other than the criminal justice system” that the Constitution provides to accuse a president of “wrongdoing.”
It was a signal many Democrats took to mean the impeachment process. Indeed, Mueller also said that one reason his team did not charge Trump was because it would be “unfair” to accuse the president of a crime “when there can be no court resolution of the actual charge.” Impeachment proceedings would offer both sides a chance to make their arguments in Congress, and render a decision.
Some lawmakers even changed their stance on impeachment after hearing Mueller’s remarks.
“Robert Mueller’s statement makes it clear: Congress has a legal and moral obligation to begin impeachment proceedings immediately,” tweeted Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), who is running for president.
Story Continued Below
Others called the statement an impeachment referral in all but name.
“This is as close to an impeachment referral as you could get under the circumstances,” said Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Ind., who is also vying for the Democratic presidential nomination.
Wednesday’s statement caps a back-and-forth between Mueller and his boss, Attorney General Bill Barr, who handled the initial presentation of Mueller’s report.
Justice Department officials confirmed to POLITICO last month that Mueller wrote a letter to Barr in March complaining that a four-page memo Barr wrote characterizing Mueller’s primary findings “did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance” of the Russia investigation.
Mueller sent the letter to Barr on March 27, three days after Barr issued his four-page summary. The missive cited “public confusion about critical aspects of the results of our investigation.”
Mueller appeared to back away from that language on Wednesday. He said he “certainly” does not question Barr’s “good faith” in deciding to make most of the full report public all at once rather than heeding Mueller’s request to release certain portions of the report immediately after the investigation concluded.
“We conducted an independent criminal investigation and reported the results to the attorney general, as required by department regulations,” Mueller said. “The attorney general then concluded that it was appropriate to provide our report to Congress and to the American people.”
