Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller took back his one comment that Democrats were latching on to from his remarks to the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday suggesting he would have indicted President Trump if it were not for a legal opinion that sitting presidents cannot be indicted.
“I want to add one correction to my testimony this morning. I wanted to go back to one thing that was said this morning by Mr. [Ted Lieu (D-CA] — who said, and I quote, ‘You didn’t charge the president because of the [Office of Legal Counsel (OLC)] opinion.’ That is not the correct way to say it,” Mueller said.
“As we say in the report and as I said in the opening, we did not reach a determination as to whether the president committed a crime,” he said.
