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.

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.

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,

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.

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.

"Under the full moon right now in Santa Ana at seventy six Monterey park, eighty Newhall eighty two degrees. And it's what oh six. KNX indepth for Mike Simpson today. I'm Chris Edens. And I'm Charles Feldman drama in the nation's capital. Varying reports the deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein wanted to resign before being fired by President Trump. But that's on hold at least until Thursday and new sexual abuse allegations against supreme court nominee, Brad Kavanagh. The Senate majority leader is calling the whole thing a smear campaign against cavenaugh and all this. And it's only Monday, the New Yorker, Ronan Farrow, drops of potentially bombshell claim from another woman against Cavanaugh and the attorney for stormy Daniels claims to have a damaging sexual evidence against Cavanaugh as well, we begin with President Trump and his deputy attorney general at least for now rod Rosenstein, joining us is axios political reporter Elena a train. So give us a little bit of this sort of tick. Doc here because the morning began with reports that Rosenstein was about to be fired. But he was going to quit before he was fired. Then he wasn't fired. Now, he's meeting with the president on Thursday. So what's going on there? Yeah. It's definitely a bit messy. But then again, a lot of things with this administration. We've seen in the past two years have been but right? So the general rod Rosenstein, we reported this this morning, we got the exclusive that Rosenstein had verbally offered his resignation to chief of staff. John Kelly this morning, and this was after he had felt that the president might fire and all of this kind of stems from the bombshell New York Times report that said that Rosenstein had suggested last year that he secretly record President Trump in the White House to expose the chaos that's consuming this administration, and he also reportedly discussed a possible indication of the twenty fifth amendment which would effectively remove a president from office. Now, rod Rosenstein had denied that after this report what many people had said was unconvincing denial, but. The news had definitely a fire under the president. And he already wasn't Rosenstein biggest fan you had a lot of trust of this Justice department and Rosenstein, remember was the one who had put he chose Robert Mueller special counsel on the Russian investigation. So there's been tension between the two for some time now, but I think this New York Times report was kind of the Cadillac for what we're seeing happening today and later this week normally John Kelly will be traveling with the president who's in New York for the United Nations meetings this week Kelly. Stay back at the White House purposely to to speak with Rosenstein that part is unclear actually having a good question. I should ask my sources about that. But a lot of times, and this has happened in the past that the chief of staff is well help stay back to handle a lot of what's going on in DC, and my guests this isn't based on reporting. But with everything that's going on with the supreme court nominee Br having. Oh, I'm sure that perhaps they wanted John Kelly to stay and handle some of the domestic affairs that were seeing while the president and others deal was other things going on on the international front in New York. Lina is it widely expected now that when Rosenstein meets with the president on Thursday that he will be fired. And does it matter and tell us why it matters whether he is fired or resigns. Definitely matters. So it is very likely that rod Rosenstein will be his job on Thursday when they check, but it is unclear there may be things that change from this point. There may be discussions or negotiations that go on behind the scenes, I'm very significant because rod Rosenstein is leading the Russian investigation ever since attorney general Jeff Sessions recused himself from the rush investigation something that also really angered the president rod Rosenstein had taken over that for sessions. And like I said he was the one who had selected Robert Mueller to lead the investigation and also has really given Robert Muller, a free a lot of independence in this investigation to carry it out in ways that molar sees so f- Rosenstein does end up leaving someone else would take place, and it could affect it could eventually affect what goes on the regard to the Russia investigation train from actually. Joining us on KNX in-depth. Okay. So you're talking about the Russia investigation when Cain IX in-depth continues. We're going to look at that. And what the absence of a rod Rosenstein might mean.

"The attorney general rod Rosenstein who found himself and lots of hot water on Friday because of a New York Times story. The story this morning is that rod Rosenstein is in a car presumably in a car on his way to the White House from the Justice department where he is expecting to be fired by President Donald Trump. This will cause the media to go absolutely beserk. They'll go crazy. They're going to set themselves on fire like Buddhist monks. I'm hoping and and also the other story is that from axios that deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein has reportedly resigning now those are two different stories. And there's one story that even has it that he's already resigned to the White House chief of staff General John Kelly. John Roberts at Fox News is saying that report is not true. Now, this is going to be oh, it's the Saturday night massacre. It's Nixon they love Nixon references. Barack Obama used the IRS against his political enemies and assassinated American citizens overseas, Richard Nixon. Establish relations with communist, China and detente with Russia and got the salt treaty and got us out of Vietnam, which Democrats got us into and brought stability back to the United States on the United States economy. The other hand the Democrats. So this is what's flying around right now. Now, here's my here's my I love I love my idea. Most we were talking during the break naturally, you love your idea. Most mighty I must the news media's reporting is being fired. He's already been fired as being summoned to the White House to be fired. He's going to resign. I think at this point Trump, if Rosenstein is headed over the White House, the president should invite him in and they should have the Meatloaf and hang out and shoot the breeze and talk about the NFL and Rosenstein should go back to the Justice.

"That decision though that issue of whether or not this whatever they came across was within the mandate of the special counsel's office that decision was not ultimately made by robert mueller himself the person who appears to have signed off on that decision is deputy attorney general rod rosenstein attorney general jeff sessions is recused himself from all matters related to the russia investigation rod rosenstein is the number two at the department and he's in charge of all matters pertaining to the special counsel's office and the russia matter more broadly as bloomberg reported today quote muller brought information involving cohen to rod rosenstein rosenstein decided that the inquiry should be handled by federal prosecutors in new york so that's what we believe was the structure of this happening today but that exact issue what falls under molars meant it what can muller do himself and what does he have to give to other people to pursue the process of deciding what gets wrapped into his investigation and what has to be pursued by other prosecutors you know it's interesting this exact issue came up when rosenstein testified before congress in december watch this it's my understanding that under the order appointing them mr muller has the authority to investigate matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation which would include a crimes uncovered while he is an investigating the main mission so for example if he is looking at the russia investigation and he finds out that the person he's looking at committed a bank robbery he isn't required to ignore a bank robbery would that be a fair assessment of his responsibilities it's a fair assessment of the gentleman has expired rosenstein may answer the question also it's important to recognize because it's a special counsel not an independent counsel those issues are worked out with the department so in the event that he came across evidence that was not appropriate for him to prosecute you could refer it to other components of the departments we wouldn't allow.
