Mueller Report Exonerates President Trump
GILBERT, ARIZONA – After Special Counsel Robert Mueller submitted his final report to U.S. Attorney General William Barr Friday, the Attorney General released a four-page summary this afternoon. After reading the summary, Congressman Biggs released the following statement:
“Attorney General Barr’s summary letter of the Special Counsel’s Report reveals a complete exoneration of President Trump by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Barr’s letter states that Special Counsel Robert Mueller found no evidence of conspiracy between candidate Donald Trump or his organization and Russia. There was no ‘collusion.’
“In applying federal statutes and Department of Justice guidelines, the Attorney General determined that there was not obstruction of justice as the President did not have the requisite culpable mental state to obstruct justice. The fact that there was no conspiracy or coordination with the Russians to interfere with the 2016 election also indicates the lack of intent required to prove obstruction of justice. The Mueller Report completely exonerates President Trump and his team.
“It is a travesty that my Democrat colleagues are now doing their best to disregard the Mueller investigative team that they put so much faith in for the past two years. They will now continue their own witch hunt to attempt to impeach President Trump. This is shameful and antithetical to the American political process.
“President Trump won the 2016 election by promising to drain the swamp and appealing to the hearts and minds of forgotten Americans all around the country. Hillary Clinton and her allies have refused to accept the result of that election, instead creating a false narrative to undermine and delegitimize our duly-elected President. I say to my Democrat friends, ‘Stop it.’”
