Donald Trump Could Be Charged When He Leaves Office, Says Robert Mueller

The former special counsel of the Trump-Russia investigation agreed that the president could be charged with obstruction of justice.

Former special counsel Robert Mueller acknowledged Wednesday that President Donald Trump could feasibly be charged with obstruction of justice after he left office.

While being questioned by Representative Ken Buck during testimony in front of the House Judiciary Committee, Mueller agreed that authorities could charge the president with a crime.

Earlier, he confirmed that his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election didn’t exonerate Trump, despite the president’s insistence that Mueller’s investigatory report cleared him of obstructing justice in the probe.
