James Comey Reacts To Mueller Report, Says Trump Possibly Obstructed Justice

Skepticism has mounted over the four-page synopsis Barr released on Sunday.

Mueller's probe did not conclude that Trump's campaign had conspired with Russian Federation ― which Comey called "good news no matter what party you're associated with".

"Mueller did what a lot of prosecutors do- they take it upstairs-let the boss decide this", he said.

Not that the Democrats are forgetting Russian Federation and the 2016 presidential election.

With less than a month of control of the committees, House Republicans subpoenaed Comey to testify behind closed doors about investigations into Hillary Clinton's email server and whether President Trump's campaign advisers colluded with the Russian government to steer the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.

Nadler said Barr would not commit to submitting the entire report to Congress. He said Barr also told him he wants to check with prosecutors who have cases associated with Mueller's Russian Federation investigation.

He said that Democrats were still treating their April 2 deadline -set in a letter that six House committee chairs sent to Barr on Monday - as a hard deadline. But any equivocation, as Mueller appears to have shown, takes us back to square one.

That's according to South Carolina Sen. "This was a very, very valid exercise in democracy", Goldstone told The Associated Press on Tuesday.

A second United States Senate committee on Wednesday (March 27) sought to examine the motives of federal agents and investigators who launched the Trump-Russia probe as a Republican effort gathered momentum to seek retribution on behalf of President Donald Trump. Mr Trump said he had been completely exonerated, even though the report did not clear him on the question of obstructing justice.

As it turns out, Barr in consultation with Deputy Attorney Rod Rosenstein decided not to prosecute on obstruction, including his decision in a letter issued 48 hours after he got the report.

The president seemed to have heeded advice from allies, including Graham, who encouraged him to use the political capital he's now gained to accomplish policy goals.

"We can not make a judgment on the basis of an interpretation by a man who was hired for his job because he believes the president is above the law and he wrote a 19-page memo to demonstrate that", Ms Pelosi reportedly told party members in a private meeting.

He said those involved in paying former British spy Christopher Steele to compile the allegations against Trump "need to be investigated and held accountable".

A Trump ally, Mr Graham laid out plans for his own investigation this week and urged US Attorney-General William Barr to name a special counsel to look into the matter separately. "And we don't investigate, despite what the partisans say, to find a particular result".

Preferring the "let's all move on" option, two CNN reporters penned an unintentionally amusing article suggesting that the finding of no collusion was an opportunity to quickly "move past a dark period", but anxious that the president "isn't prepared to let go".
