James Comey, the former FBI Director, has said he had “great faith” in Robert Mueller; however, he is confused by the special counsel’s decision to pass on the obstruction decision related to President Donald Trump’s potential involvement in election interference to Attorney General William Barr.
“I can’t quite understand what’s going on with the obstruction stuff,” Comey said. “I have great faith in Bob Mueller, but I just can’t tell from the letter why didn’t he decide these questions when the entire rationale for a special counsel is to make sure the politicals aren’t making the key charging decisions.”
Mueller did not explicitly exonerate Trump from evidence of committed obstruction, but did not expressly report that he did commit that crime either, which in this country, should equate to innocence. The mainstream media doesn’t want it to look that way even though that is the law of the land.
According to Comey, though, “The Russians really did massively interfere in the 2016 election, with the goal of helping one candidate and damaging another. That was not a hoax.”
