Fox News’ Shepard Smith told his viewers on Tuesday to read the Robert Mueller’s report in entirety, noting that the special counsel’s office did not exonerate President Donald Trump.
Speaking on the battle between House Dems and the Justice Department over the Mueller report, Shep Smith said that the Russia probe found multiple instances of potential obstruction on behalf of Trump, but that the special counsel declined to prosecute a sitting president due to long-standing DOJ policy.
“Remember, in his 400-plus page report — that everyone in America should read, everyone — Robert Mueller laid out ten instances of apparent obstruction of justice, criminal obstruction of justice, potentially, by President Trump,” the Fox News anchor said. “The special counsel did not exonerate the president. They said if they could’ve they would’ve but they couldn’t so they didn’t.”
“Mueller explained that if he and his team had confidence that the president did not commit obstruction, they would have said so. He also said that under Justice Department guidelines, charging the president with a crime was never an option to him. He said the Constitution requires another process,” Smith continued.
