He can’t understand why Mueller did what he did…
During an interview with CBS’s “This Morning,” Attorney General William Barr spoke about FBI special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on his findings in his investigation into Russian meddling during the presidential election.
Barr insisted to CBS News chief legal correspondent Jan Crawford the DOJ determined “many of the instances” Mueller found “would not amount to obstruction” as a matter of law.
“[W]e didn’t agree with … a lot of the legal analysis in the report. It did not reflect the views of the Department. It was the views of a particular lawyer or lawyers, and so we applied what we thought was the right law,” he stated.
“The bottom line was that Bob Mueller identified some episodes,” Barr said. “He did not reach a conclusion. He provided both sides of the issue, and his conclusion was he wasn’t exonerating the president, but he wasn’t finding a crime either.”
Barr added it’s Mueller’s decision to testify before Congress, but he said he does not think the line Mueller drew about sticking to his report is “the proper line.”
