(FOX NEWS) – Special Counsel Robert Mueller, in his only public remarks since being appointed to lead the Russia investigation, said his team did not have the “option” to charge President Trump with a crime because of longstanding Justice Department policy, while indicating he does not plan to testify before Congress about the probe.
Mueller, speaking from the Justice Department Wednesday morning, announced the closing of his office and detailed the findings of the Russia investigation, underscoring the findings in his report that there “was not sufficient evidence to charge a conspiracy” over whether members of the Trump campaign coordinated with the Russian government during the 2016 presidential election.
But Mueller did not mince words on his inquiry into whether the president obstructed justice.
“If we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said that,” Mueller said. “We did not determine whether the president did commit a crime.”
