"Russia, Russia, Russia! That's all you heard at the beginning of this Witch Hunt Hoax", he wrote.

The comments were Mueller's first public statements since his appointment as special counsel two years ago. Barr lied to the nation and should no longer occupy his office. "We did not determine whether the President did commit a crime". And since there could not be any judicial remedy for such a high-level accusation, it would have not been fair to make one against the president.

Mueller's public remarks were his first since concluding a almost two-year investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and whether Trump sought to obstruct the probe. If he could have cleared Trump of obstruction of justice he "would have said so", Mueller declared. Amash responded that McCarthy hasn't read the special counsel's report. "If we had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so".

Under pressure to testify before Congress, Mueller did not rule it out.

The wreck came moments after Jordan King locked up entering the pits and slid into his right-front tire changer. He led five times for 22 laps, continuing his streak of leading in all four of his career "500" starts.

Moments after his statement, Democrats in Congress were calling for action.

Mueller has been in negotiations with the Democratic-controlled House Judiciary Committee, which wants to question him over his findings.

His appointment stunned Trump, who, White House witnesses told investigators, numerous times sought ways to undermine or fire Mr Mueller. "I am settling on that choice myself - nobody has revealed to me whether I can or ought to affirm or talk further about this issue".

In first public remarks in two years of leading the Russian Federation meddling probe, Special Counsel Robert Mueller said Wednesday government policy and principles prevented him from even considering criminally charging President Donald Trump, and declined to clear him of a crime.

Special counsel Robert Muller speaks at the Department of Justice Wednesday, May 29, 2019, in Washington, about the Russian Federation investigation.

"We would like to thank Special Counsel Robert Mueller for his service to our nation over the past two years". Mueller said that if he is called to testify before Congress, he wouldn't say anything beyond what is in the published report.

The first is that if he'd suggested Trump obstructed justice without charging him with it, it would have deprived Trump of an opportunity to defend himself as he normally could in a court of law. Mueller's investigation concluded in April when he sent his long-awaited report to Attorney General William Barr.

Trump retweeted Sanders' statement and added his own comments. What was your take on the Mueller report?
