WASHINGTON – US Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller did not charge President Donald Trump, because he did not conclude that the actions of the American leader of the crime, and not because of the internal rules of the Ministry of justice or lack of the necessary powers. This explanation Mueller gave on Wednesday at the hearings before the Special Committee on the intelligence of the House of Representatives of the Congress of the United States. Thus, the former Special Prosecutor Muller corrected his testimony, which he gave only a few hours before at a hearing in another Committee of the lower house of Congress – the legal.
“I would like to make one amendment to my testimony given this morning,” said Mueller, who oversaw the investigation into the circumstances of Russia’s alleged interference in the US presidential election in 2016. As recalled by the retired special Prosecutor, at previous hearings, Congressman Ted Lew (Democrat, from California) asked whether it was true that Mueller did not pass a decision on trump’s guilt because of the internal rules of the Ministry of justice. Mueller then replied in the affirmative. However, “it is wrong to say so,” he said at a hearing in the Special Committee on intelligence. “As we noted in the report and as I said in my opening remarks, we did not come to the conclusion whether the President committed a crime,” Muller explained.
