MARYLAND (WBFF) Maryland lawmakers have reacted to Special Counsel Robert Mueller's findings that President Trump's campaign did not conspire or coordinate with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election.
U.S. Senator Chris Van Hollen says, “The Mueller report confirms that the Russians interfered in our 2016 election, a point that President Trump continues to deny. I know our country is relieved that Mueller did not find that the President participated in a criminal conspiracy with Putin and Russia, but the President is simply wrong to claim he has been exonerated with respect to charges that he sought to obstruct justice.
In fact, the Mueller report expressly indicates that they did not reach a determination on that question. It is alarming but perhaps not surprising that Attorney General Barr — who was handpicked by President Trump — would try to exonerate the President of obstructing justice within 48 hours of getting a report that did not reach such a conclusion.
