AG Barr says Mueller described the facts surrounding his investigation into allegations of obstruction of justice but made no determination as to wether Trump committed a crime, deferring to Barr. (Don’t’ forget that Barr is Trump’s appointee, and Trump’s man in the DoD. –S.K.)
The report “does not conclude that the president committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him,” Barr quotes Mueller as writing.
"The Barr Letter says Mueller did not make a determination of whether Trump obstructed justice. It sets out both sides. But Barr concludes— on his determination — that there was no obstruction. How did he do that without trying to interview Trump?"
Full report now needs to come out.
verb 1. (especially of an official body) absolve (someone) from blame for a fault or wrongdoing, especially after due consideration of the case.
AG Barr concluded that the Mueller report did not EXONERATE Trump from commiting any crime.
