This week on Washington Week: Robert Mueller speaks
Special counsel Robert Mueller spoke this week for the first time since launching an investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Mueller said “if we had had confidence the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so,” and suggested it was up to Congress to decide what to do next as his office was bound by Justice Department policy not to charge a sitting president with a federal crime.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said all options are on the table. President Trump pushed back on Thursday, telling reporters Congress lacks the evidence of high crimes and misdemeanors needed to impeach.
Where does this leave the march toward impeachment?
