Robert Mueller just quit his job.
And he thought he could leave with one last shot directed at President Trump.
But William Barr just unleashed a devastating attack on Muller with just eight words.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller is officially in retirement.
The lead investigator into the phony Russian collusion conspiracy theory for the past two years recently announced his retirement after wrapping up his work.
And he left with a parting shot directed at President Trump.
“Mueller, after completing his investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, said that he did not find evidence of a conspiracy but declined to make a decision on obstruction,” reports the Daily Caller.
It was then that Mueller left his last attack on Trump as he made his way out of the door in public life and announced his retirement.
“If we had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said that,” Mueller said last week.
That left Attorney General William Barr outraged beyond belief.
Mueller had been playing both sides all along.
He lured Democrats into rooting for him to haul up the President on charges for a conspiracy that didn’t exist, and when he exonerated Trump he then turned around and smacked him in the face in the final seconds before calling it quits.
And Barr isn’t about to let that slide.
“Attorney General Bill Barr said in an interview with CBS News that he believes now-former special counsel Robert Mueller could’ve reached a conclusion as to whether President Donald Trump obstructed justice,” adds the Daily Caller.
In a preview of an interview with CBS News on Thursday, Barr slammed Mueller’s decision to punt on the obstruction part of his Russia investigation.
“I personally felt he could’ve reached a decision,” Barr said. “Right, he could’ve reached a conclusion. The opinion says you cannot indict a president while he is in office but he could’ve reached a decision as to whether it was criminal activity.”
In just eight words, Barr slammed Mueller in a way he never thought possible.
It’s obvious why Barr is doing this.
He’s all about protecting the office of the President, and right now there is a growing group within Washington that are determined to destroy Trump even to the point of damaging the office of President himself.
And Mueller is either unknowingly or willingly aiding them.
“He had his reasons for not doing it, which he explained, and I’m not going to, you know, argue about those reasons. But when he didn’t make a decision, the Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and I felt it was necessary for us as the heads of the Department to reach that decision,” Barr added, explaining why he publicly said he did not believe there was enough evidence that Trump obstructed.
“Barr also knocked Mueller for any implication that Congress has to now take up the mantle of the investigation. Mueller seemed to hint during his statement Wednesday that because the Department of Justice (DOJ) cannot charge a sitting president, congressional bodies should be the ones to hold the president accountable for any alleged crimes,” concludes the Daily Caller.
Do you think that Mueller disgraced himself with his last comments about Trump?
