Special counsel Robert Mueller to make ‘substantial’ statement on Russia investigation

The Department of Justice announced Wednesday that special counsel Robert S. Mueller III will make a public statement at 11 a.m. on the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

There will be no question-and-answer session following Mueller’s statement, the Department of Justice said. The statement is expected to last about eight minutes, according to a person with knowledge of the matter.

Wednesday’s appearance will mark the first time Mueller has spoken publicly following the release last month of his 448-page report.

The White House was notified Tuesday night that Mueller planned to make a statement on Wednesday, according to a senior White House official.

Mueller’s only public statement to date is the one he put out when he was appointed special counsel two years ago.

I'm sure everything he's going to say has been approved by DOJ, so I'm not expecting any bombshells or even anything very interesting..

Barr wouldn't let him take the podium if he was going to say anything meaningful.

Wow he basically just said doj policy didnt allow him to charge the president and said that policy is unconstitutional. He's inferring Congress should charge the president.

Barr is full of shit shorter translation. On the collusion what he actually said there wasn't enough evidence to charge a greater conspiracy. Not the same as saying no collusion no obstruction.

Meh. Far too subtle for most voters. And it allows the Republicans in Congress to continue to do nothing.

Robert Mueller III is simply another good Republican protecting his party.

Nothing changes from the Mueller Report. There was insufficient evidence and therefore, in our Country, a person is innocent. The case is closed! Thank you.
What happened to complete and total vindication?

I think he made some points, but I think it will go over the heads of most people. I also think I'm going to read the report myself now.

I just heard Eric Swallwell on MSNBC say that it's time to change the DOJ ruling against indicting a sitting president. I've always thought that was a dumb idea and I have heard that it was misinterpreted originally, but I'm not an attorney, so I don't know that much about that.

.@realDonaldTrump attorney Jay Sekulow releases a statement following Mueller's remarks, emphasizing AG Barr's conclusion that "the report identifies no actions that, in our judgment, constitute obstructive conduct."
