Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Nothing new in Mueller's testimony so far but some interesting confirmations from his own lips;
Quote:
Nadler: So the report did not conclude that he did not commit obstruction of justice? Is that correct?

Mueller: That is correct.

Nadler: And what about total exoneration? Did you actually totally exonerate the President?

Mueller: No.

Nadler: Now, in fact your report expressly states it does not exonerate the President?

Mueller: It does.
So rebutting Trump's claim the report said "no obstruction!"

Quote:
Nadler: "Under Department of Justice policy, the President could be prosecuted for obstruction of justice crimes after he leaves office, correct?"

Mueller: "True"
Quote:
Cohen: "Your investigation found at some point after your appointment the President, quote, called Sessions at his home and asked if he would un-recuse himself. Is not not true?"

Mueller: "It's true."

Cohen: "It wasn't the first time the president asked sessions to un-recuse himself, was it?"

Mueller: "I know of two occasions."

Cohen went on to ask Mueller if the attorney general is supposed to act as "the attorney general of the United States of America or a consigliere for the President?"

"The United States of America," Mueller responded.
