Mueller report recounts 10 'episodes' involving Trump and questions of obstruction
"Special counsel Robert Muller's report into Russian interference in the two thousand sixteen presidential campaign is now in the hands of congress and the American public. But while the investigation is over the nearly four hundred fifty page report is creating more questions. Bob Costantini reports from the White House attorney general bars statement based on the molar report out that while it was quite clear. Russia's internet research agency, affiliated with the Putin government trying to influence the campaign in favor of Donald Trump. Indeed as the report states, quote, the investigation did not identify evidence that any US person knowingly or intentionally coordinated with the IRA's interference operation, unquote. Put another way the special counsel found. No collusion. The report itself suggest the June two thousand sixteen meeting at Trump Tower arranged by Donald from junior with Russians claiming to have dirt on Hillary Clinton was one of many contacts studied under what's commonly referred to as collusion. Otherwise, quote, the Russian contacts consisted of business. Actions offers of assistance to the campaign invitations for candidate Trump and Putin to meet in person invitations for campaign officials and representatives of the Russian government to meet and policy positions seeking improved US Russian relations in quote, President Trump's initial public reaction was breath during an event hosting wounded warriors here and they're having a good day. I'm having to do it was called, no collusion. No obstruction. The attorney general Robert Muller handed off the idea of whether the president or someone close to him tried to obstruct Justice in the Russia investigation after finding ten potential episodes. Although the deputy attorney general disagreed with some of the special counsels legal theories and felt that some of the episodes examined did not amount to obstruction as a matter of law. We did not realize solely on that. In making our decision. Democrats on Capitol Hill will certainly try to look at those episodes further including the firing of James Comey and some of the president's tweets urging potential witnesses to not rat on him related to the obstruction of Justice aspect of the Muller reports bar over this bit of empathy for President Trump. There is substantial evidence to show that the president was frustrated and angered by his sincere belief that the investigation was undermining his presidency propelled by his political opponents and fuelled by illegal leaks. Robert Mueller lifted up. Bar deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein to look into whether the president or someone close to him could have engaged in obstruction of Justice. They decided no among the obstruction of Justice lines of inquiry Muller mentioned in the report are the firing of James Comey attempts to influence witnesses and the president's order to White House counsel dumb again that he tell deputy AG rod Rosenstein, the fire Muller Mcgann who spoke with the team for as much as thirty hours apparently refused to do. So in an effort to save the president from an appearance of structure of Justice add to that the alleged efforts by the president ticket. Michael Cohen to stay loyal once Cohen head criminal legal problems in New York Muller ends with a hint for congress to decide if it should charge the president with obstruction on the way tomorrow Lago. President Trump tweeted from Air Force One I had the right to end the whole witch hunt. If I wanted I have fired everyone, including Muller if I wanted I chose not to I had the right to use executive privilege. I didn't however the report makes a point of comment regarding obstruction. The president's to influence the investigation were mostly unsuccessful. But that is largely because the persons who surrounded the president declined to carry out orders or accede to his requests. And now it's up to congress to take the next step. Linda Kenyon, has the view from Capitol Hill. Michael if you thought it was over thank again special counsel made clear that he did not exonerate the president, and the responsibility now falls to congress told the president accountable for his actions. That's Representative Jerrold Nadler, the powerful chairman of the House Judiciary committee. He's leading one of the many investigations that will continue in the wake of the mullahs report. A report that found no collusion, but did not absolve President Trump of obstruction of Justice attorney general William bar who presented the report at a news conference was roundly criticized by many Democrats, including Nadler who said bar was far from Jek give bars words and actions suggest he has been disingenuous and misleading in saying the president is clear of wrongdoing. Nadler says the redacted Muller report is clear the President Trump. Committed multiple misdeeds report outlines disturbing evidence that President Trump engaged in obstruction of Justice and other misconduct. Senator Richard Blumenthal. A member of the Senate Judiciary committee says the misconduct on the part of the president is stunning. But that's only part of the story. Details in this report about the Russian attack on our democracy are truly chilling also calls into question, the objectivity of the attorney general Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell, one of the only Republicans to make any public comment on the release of the mullahs report depicted, the attorney general the special counsel, and the deputy attorney general as beyond reproach all three of them about as close to a-political as you can imagine strong disagreement from Adam Schiff, the chairman of the house intelligence committee. Attorney general did a grave disservice to the country by misrepresenting significant parts of the mullahs report and shift says the attorney general also blast over the actions of the president of the United States there. Unquestionably
Political fight over Mueller report intensifies
"Meanwhile, the escalating political battle over the report centers on reductions, which lawyerly editing process, Mr. bars redacting at least four categories of information before issuing it to congress and the public Devlin Barrett who covers the Justice department and the F B I at the Washington Post says the fight over blackout boxes is likely to lead to months of battles between congress and the Justice department. Devon, what's up here? The attorney general is is looking at a number of different types of material that we would be redacted and what I try to describe in the piece was just how some of those categories are fairly flexible, particularly the grand jury material category. And we really don't know how he's going to. Decide those reductions, but because this is such a politically charged issue. It's just an incredibly tense and people are already accusing him of acting in bad faith before they even see what he's done. He's working with Robert Muller on this. Correct. That's right. And he's working with Robert Muller, and he's working with deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein, who's been supervising this this investigation from the beginning. All right. So I mean, this thing could come out and be virtually three hundred eighty eight pages are so out of the four hundred that are completely blacked out in theory. Right. A lot of grand jury stuff. I'd imagine this with all those subpoenas that were issued well in theory, but there's a couple of things to remember one bar has publicly pledged to be as transparent as possible now transparency is often in the eye of the beholder. The other issue is grand jury material can be interpreted different ways. I think prosecutors genuinely interpret the category, very broadly. But I think when there's this much attention on such a high profile case, especially a case in which congress also has. Vested interest in knowing what happened in the course of the investigation. I think there's some pretty good arguments to define grandeur material material narrowly,
NBC's Savannah Guthrie Grills Sarah Sanders
"Savannah Guthrie, I've NBC I went after Sarah Sanders saying well doesn't the president needs to apologize now. Because he didn't file fire Mueller, and it became it was Sarah Sanders turned on her like a Honey badger. Let's let's play cut right now. Robert Muller deserve better from the president that this kind of language and behaviour, frankly, I think the American people deserve better. They didn't deserve for the election of this president to try to be wait a minute. But the president's rhetoric about a public servant doing a job. Are you kidding? The president's rhetoric matches. They are literally the media and Democrats have called the president an agent of a foreign government. We're talking to that is an accusation equal to treason, which is punishable by death in this country. Want to quote from the report here this not I will this is William bar. According to the report quote. The investigation special counsel's investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities in a footnote related to that to that quote. The footnote says that in assessing potential conspiracy charges the special counsel also considered well, the members of the Trump campaign coordinated with Russian election interference activities, the special counsel defied coordination with an agreement tacit or express between the Trump campaign and the Russian government on election interference. And it just did happen. This is again, we will see the full report. We want transparency we want transparency. There's there's one other point here that I wanted to make on the obstruction of Justice after reviewing the special the special counsel may not know determination after reviewing the special counsel's final report on these issues consulting with department officials, including the office of legal counsel and applying the principles of federal prosecution that guide are charging decisions deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein and I- meaning William bar. The attorney journal concluded that the evidence developed during the special counsel's investigation is not sufficient to establish that the president committed and obstruction of Justice crime in making this determination. We noted that the special counsel recognize that quote, the evidence does not establish that the president was involved in an underlying crime related to Russian election interference unquote, and that while not determinative. The absence of such evidence beers upon the president's intent with respect to
President Trump, Robert Muller And President discussed on Paul W. Smith

Finally details are starting to emerge from special counsel, Robert Mueller's investigation Sunday attorney general William bar sent a letter to congress summarizing the main conclusions from Muller's report critically Muller did not find president Donald Trump's campaign or associates conspired with Russia during the two thousand sixteen US presidential election, also attorney general bar and deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein decided the evidence was not sufficient to support a prosecution of the president for obstruction of Justice. And then at one point bar quote smaller directly writing while this report does not conclude that the president committed a crime. It also does not
Nadler: Mueller Report Is "Limited To Crimes," Congress Has Responsibility To Look At "Broader Picture"
"We do know the special counsel is not planning to issue any more indictments. According to a senior Justice department official the conclusion of the report which has cast a shadow over the first two years of the Trump administration is already shaping new political battles the president's allies are signaling he is vindicated as Democrats demand full transparency and vowed a press four with their ongoing investigations into the president. His administration and his businesses. Let's get straight to the man at the center of cherry chairman in the house, congressman, Jerry Nadler of New York. Thank you so much for joining me this morning surfers on our reporting that there will be no further indictments in the Muller probe. That means the end no member of the Trump campaign was charged with conspiring with the Russian government to influence the election Duke sept- that no member of the Trump team engaged in that kind of criminal conspiracy with Russia will I don't know first of all we don't know what indictments forthcoming from other investigations that have been spun out by the special prosecutor to the southern district of New York with these district Virginia. But his main mission was about Russian you think you think he he Muller would would send that to other parts of the Justice department. Don't know that's one of the things we will have to see when we read the report. And that's one of the reasons that I think it's. So crucial that the entire report and the evidence underlying it be released to the public transparency is key here. I mean, obviously, we know we know there was some collusion. I mean, we know that the president's son in campaign manager involved in a meeting with the Russians. To receive a stolen. They thought was to receive a stolen. Information's information is stolen by the Russians from the Democratic National Committee as part of the Russian government attempt to help Trump in the election. That's the way the Email invited into the meeting put it none of what you just said has risen to the level of criminal indictment special counsel. No it hasn't. As far as we know. But we know there was collusion. Why? There's been no indictments. We don't know. Let me say further, we know a number of things we know what I just said we know that the president. Pressure pressured, the FBI to go easy to stop investigating Flynn and various other people. We know that he fired the FBI director. To as he put it to the NBC to take care of the Russian thing in order to stop the investigation of various people associated with him. We know that he concocted the lie about the purpose of that Russian meeting. We know that. He. A lot a lot of his top associates have been indicted and convicted, and we know that he has relate engaged in a relentless attack against the FBI, very slow. So on that note. Mr Chairman what you're describing is evidence to back up. What you said before that you believe the president has obstructed Justice. You still believe that? Well, there have been obstruction of Justice. Whether they're clearly whether they're criminal obstructions another question, but we have. Special. Prosecutor is limited in scope. His job was limited in scope and limited to crimes with congress has to do is look at a broader picture, we are in chart. We we have the responsibility of vindicate of protecting the rule of law of looking instructions of Justice at looking at abuses of power and corruption in order to protect the rule of law. So that our democratic institutions are not greatly damaged by this president. I'm not married into do. Right. And on that very note if Robert Muller comes out in his report, and suggests very strongly states flat out that he agrees with you that the president of struck dead Justice or that the president may have committed some crime that guidelines don't allow to be indicted will you begin impeachment proceedings? It's way too early to speculate about that. Remember, the it is true that the Justice department thinks that they can indict the sitting president no matter what the evidence as a matter of law. And that's what makes it even more important that all the evidence be given to congress and the American people because while the normal rule is and it's a good rule that if you're not indicting someone because you don't have enough evidence. A you don't then smear their name by by saying they did these terrible things if you're not in ninety someone because you can't as a matter of law, then you can't hold the president accountable. The only other institution they can't as congress, and you should not then hide the evidence because that converted into a cover up, right? Congress needs that evidence and the American people need that evidence that information to make judgments, well, let me ask you about that. Because I am glad that you brought that out the deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein has made clear that he wants to quote, prevent the disclosure of information that would unfairly tarnished people who are not charged with crimes, but. We just heard when you saying that people should see the entire report the evidence underlying it Democrats were pretty upset in two thousand sixteen when then FBI director tapes, call me publicly accused Hillary Clinton of wrongdoing, but then said, well, she shouldn't be indicted. So why shouldn't allegations that don't reach an indictment threshold and talking about the president. But everybody else, stay confidential. Well, because we need to know what was going on here. And it's not just a question of of indictments. It's a question of of protecting the rule of law and of obstruction of Justice and abuses of power and protecting our government and our whole system and it's been subjected to unprecedented attack. Our law enforcement agencies have been subjected to unprecedented smear campaign by the president against the FBI the special prosecutor other one forcement agencies. We have to know the facts so that we can so that we can protect our to know the facts, but do you want to know? Well, the American public has not worried about judgments the underlying notion of the protocol of not getting putting out evidence and people that aren't indicted is to protect reputations and so forth that was the concerned again about Hillary Clinton. This is the same should be applied for Trump officials. Well, we're not talking about indictments. We're talking about what about the American people finding out what went on, and what has gone on a very different question. We have to know. And I want to ask you about Robert Muller's report overall, and the whole notion that you and other Democrats, including the house speaker, I've talked about with transparency if the Justice department is not going to hand it over to you fully and say that it can be fully. Put out to the American public. Are you? Absolutely sure that you will issue a subpoena. Well, we'll try to negotiate and we'll try everything else first. But if we have to yes, we will certainly issue subpoenas to get that information, and you're going to be willing to take that all the way up to the supreme court if you have to absolutely. And by the way, the already hearing that the president may wanna claim executive privilege in some of this. And the fact is he has no right to claim executive privilege any evidence of wrongdoing executive privilege cannot shield evidence of wrongdoing, and that was made very clear by the nine nothing decision of the supreme court in the Nixon case where the order the tapes reveal even though those tapes were personal conversations with the president and some of his advisers executive privilege cannot be used to shield wrongdoing. How long are you going to give the Justice department to turn it over? I can't give you a specific answer that days weeks months. Can you give a general? It will be months. Okay. So you're likely to see the main conclusions of the mullahs report as soon as today will you accept them at at face value. Well, we're likely to see what bar characterizes as the main conclusions of the report and will accept them but subject to see all the underlying. We have to make judgments the American people have to make judgments as to how founded those conclusions are or bars summary of the conclusions are, and that's one reason we have to see the entire report and the evidence under an underlying it are you suggesting that bar might mislead about what? No, no, I have no reason to say that. But I am suggesting that people make judgements and those judgments could be right or wrong. Making a judgment is to. Characterizing observation. And and what about when you get to the point where you actually do see the whole report from from Robert Mueller will you trust those results. Do you have full, faith and confidence? I have a great deal of confidence in the people who worked with them. I think they've done. Very good people. So my expectation is that yes, I would address that. But like any other product of human hands, we have to look at the underlying. Evidence and make our own judgments as to as to their judgments. So on that note, let's say he doesn't find that the president obstructed Justice. We you stop your investigation in the house on well, he can't he cannot find that the president did or did not obstruct Justice because his mandate is to look for crimes and the policy. The Justice department is that you cannot look for any criminal acts by the president cannot make that judgment. He can give evidence one way or the. Yeah. Exactly because you don't get you can't reach that conclusion. And the other point is our mandate as congress and the committee for that matter is much broader special prosecutor's looking only at crimes we have to look at protecting the rule of law at obstruction of Justice at abuse of power and a much greater level than simply crimes. Chairman, Jerry, Nadler, thank you
Trump appears upbeat as Mueller probe ends
"Special counsel submitted. His report on the Russia collusion investigation to attorney general William bar last night. And now it's up to the attorney general to decide when and how to release the report's conclusions Muller was appointed. By deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein, twenty two months ago to investigate Russian interference in the two thousand sixteen presidential election and investigate claims of collusion between the Trump campaign in Russia. Something CBS correspondent Mola langey tells us the president has vehemently denied, it was no collusion. I didn't need Russians to help me when I awoke President Trump has repeatedly denied he had any help from the Russians and has consistently attacked the Muller probe. No collusion. No, nothing all the phony which forty which during the nearly two year. Pro- Muller has charged six of the president's associates with crimes ranging from lying to the FBI to tax evasion. Muller also indicted twenty-five Russian nationals on charges related to hacking or disseminating false information. But it could be a while before the public learns if any of the reports detail. Dell's attorney general William bar will send a summary to congress as soon as this weekend, and then decide which parts to reveal my goal and intent is to get as much information out as I can consistent with the regulation. The White House also wants to see the report prior to congress and local makers are calling for the immediate release of the entire report. Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren tweets released, the mullahs report to the American public. Now Representative Jim McGovern says we deserve to know the full unabridged truth, we will settle for nothing less congressman Steve Lynch says what happens next depends on the evidence. Here's WBZ's Don huff with a number of indictments and guilty pleas. Lynch says the special counsel's investigation has gone a lot further than initially expected Lynch, adding the Mueller investigation was limited to Russian election meddling congress. He says can dig deeper what the Knicks of Republicans and Democrats in congress in the house and Senate. It'll have to. Proceed to impeach mentor. Any any other censure? Then it would have to be based on the evidence. Lynch tells nightside's Dan Rae. He can't say whether this will end with
"deputy attorney general rod rosenstein" Discussed on The Daily
"I did not have sexual relations with that woman says emphatically that the White House in way involved in the burglary mugging the democratic headquarters, and he'll have no further comment on that matter. And each army general flying by comprehensive unbiased investigation of the break in Democratic National Committee headquarters on outside investigator has been appointed whitewater counsel. Kenneth Starr has been granted permission to expand. His investigation investigative has to follow a set of guidelines a set of rules to ensure they are both independent and accountable. This is a sacred process. This is not a witch hunt. And then after each of these investigations those guidelines have changed in response to the perceived flaws or excess of the most recent investigation in an attempt to improve deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein is announcing the appointment of a special counsel. Now, the latest set of former FBI director Robert Muller will now lead the investigation or being really tested for the first time as special counsel, Robert Muller. Prepares police. His report later this month got on. Thank you. I'm Michael Barbaro. It's really great to meet you. Hey, mike. Oh did. Oh. So we wanted to sit down with Neil caudill because he's the person who wrote those rules. It's Monday March fourth. So we start absolutely Neil from your very informed point of view. What do you expect this report to actually look like? So the first report that Muller will send to the attorney general is supposed to be a summary of the investigation, and it's supposed to detail. You know, the roads take it and throats, not taken reasons why. And then there's a second report. And that is the report that the attorney general William bar is going to give to the congress. I don't think that the special counsel regulations envision the two reports to look the same in. Why do you say think having written these rules, don't, you know, exactly what they envision? I think the best way of thinking about the special counsel regulations is to think about it a little bit and not to sound grandiose. But like a constitution you can't intensified all of the crises that are going to happen in the years to. Come in a dynamic Republic. And so you don't have hard and fast rules. You have some rules. And then you have the spirit and the animating principles behind that. The animating focus of the special counsel regulations is to restore what it calls public confidence in the integrity of the process, and then reasoning backward from that. What's the best thing? I could do is attorney general when I'm writing this report to help facilitate that public confidence in the administration of Justice, if the crime is, you know, something very serious of national security concern, like potential collusion with Russia. Moore's going to be important if the crime is something that's much more. Minor less information is required. And to me that means that more information is required rather than less when you're dealing with the highest level of our government the president of the United States and potential wrongdoing. So you're saying the guidelines. Encourage the attorney general to give something quite comprehensive to congress. I don't want to say it's quite comprehensive the regulation say that the attorney general is supposed to tell congress the fact that the investigations concluded some reasons why and detail any instances in which the attorney general or the attorney general's predecessors like Whitaker or rod Rosenstein, who's the acting attorney general any instances in which they said, no Tamar now Barca certainly go further and provide a lot of detail..
Donald Trump denies NYT report he tried to interfere in Michael Cohen probe
"That President Trump tried to interfere in the federal investigation of his former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen. The president is now denying New York Times story that he asked then acting attorney general Matt Whitaker to put a Trump supporter in charge of the pro supporter. US attorney Jeffrey Berman had already recused himself from the investigation. And the times reports the president soured on Winokur when he was unable to make this happen. Auspey congressman Roque of the oversight committee and our correspondents analysts have full coverage of the day's top stories us, go straight to our White House. Correspondent Caitlyn Collins. Caitlyn take us through this truly remarkable report alleging that the president tried to influence the Michael Cohen investigation. Yeah. Wolf if you're starting to sense of pattern here. I'm not sure anyone can blame you an explosive report in the New York Times that claims that the president asked then acting attorney general mad. Whitaker to reach out to the US attorney in the southern district of New York and try to get him to unrequir- himself from overseeing that investigation into Michael Cohen hush money payments to women an investigation that is tied to the president. And this report wolf that the president today denied. Stunning report in the New York Times, claiming President Trump asked then acting attorney general Matt Whitaker to put someone who is supported Trump in charge of investigating hush payments made by his former fixer Michael Cohen. I think he's done a great job. Bombshell. Trump to nine today. No. Gave you that us. More fake news. A lot of a lot of fake fake news out there. No, I did the person Trump wanted in the job US attorney for the southern district of New York. Jeffrey Berman had ardor himself from overseeing the pro according to the times it's unclear how Whitaker responded, and there's no evidence he took steps to intervene despite telling us OC, it's that he knew part of his job was to jump on a grenade for the president still Whitaker remarked that the New York prosecutors required adult supervision, according to the times while Berman is recused from this probe. He has not recused from another that could touch Trump one looking into the president's inaugural committee the times adding Trump soured on Whitaker after his inability to make the change and he has since been replaced by Bill bar, but Whitaker could be facing bigger problems. He recently told a congressional committee under oath that the president had never pressured him regarding any. Investigations at no time has the White House. Ask for nor have I provided any promises or commitments concerning the special counsel's investigation or any other investigation. Whitaker is now under scrutiny by house. Democrats. Potential perjury today at DOJ spokesperson said he stands by his testimony and Trump is standing by him to very very straight shooter. I watched him during the hearing some of it. I thought he was exceptional since Trump told advisors deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein, assured him the Cohen investigation had nothing to do with him. The New York Times reports he has since wondered if Rosenstein was deliberately misleading him to keep him calm. The extensive report is also claiming Trump's told advisers and February twenty seventeen they should say he asked for Michael Flynn's resignation because quote that sounds better pressed by Sean Spicer, if it was true Trump reportedly. Responded say that say that I asked for his resignation, according to the times White House lawyers were so concerned about what Spicer said from the briefing room podium that they compiled an entire memo laying out his misstatements the White House counsel reviewed and determined that. There is not an illegal issue. But rather a trust issue. The report coming amid headlines that former deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe who was fired last spring briefed congressional leadership about the counterintelligence investigation. He launched into President Trump purpose of the briefing was to let our congressional leadership know exactly what we've been doing opening a case of this nature. Not something that an FBI director, not something that acting FBI director do by yourself, right? And that no one raised concern congress, and I told congress what we had done anyone object. That's the important part here. So that no one of Jack not on legal grounds, not on constitutional grounds. And not based on the facts. Now wolf the times also notes the president has had private conversations with Republican lawmakers about a campaign to attack the Muller probe something he's done over eleven hundred times and could very well serve as a public relations strategy in addition to a legal one will developments. Indeed, art, Caitlyn facts very much. Let's bring in our Justice reporter Laura Jarrett, and our chief legal analyst Jeffrey to then the Lord is President Trump's alleged request of Winokur to replace the person leading the cone investigation of struck to what some are suggesting could be obstruction of Justice the legal question in this case as always what was the president's intent if he wanted to have Berman on the case because he thought he was a better lawyer. And he thought that the US attorney zombie was not doing a good job that might be legitimate. But if he wants Berman on the case because he thinks he's going to protect him. Somehow, that's where we tread into the land of whether he's doing it for corrupt reasons and where obstruction could come into play. But the other point is that the New York Times lays out more.
