Mueller Team: We Have ‘Sufficient Evidence’ To Criminally Charge Trump With Obstruction

Two prosecutors on special counsel Rober Mueller’s team have revealed that they obtained enough evidence to charge President Donald Trump with criminal obstruction of justice — but they didn’t do so because of the Department of Justice’s policy that a sitting president cannot be indicted, sources with knowledge of Mueller’s investigation told journalist Murray Waas.

According to the sources, the prosecutors told officials at the Department of Justice that “had it not been for the unique nature of the case — the investigation of a sitting president of the United States, and one who tried to use the powers of his office to thwart and even close down the special counsel’s investigation — they would have advocated that he face federal criminal charges.”

Mueller’s report specifically states that it would have exonerated Trump of obstruction if it felt it could do so — and then pointedly declined to exonerate him.

The report also outlined multiple instances in which Trump may have obstructed justice, including his orders to White House counsel Don McGahn to fire Mueller and his order to henchman Corey Lewandowski to tell then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions to retract his recusal from the Russia probe.

Should Trump lose the 2020 election, he will no longer have the protection of the office of the president and prosecutors could move to indict him.
