Mueller refused to testify before Congress and resigned
American Special prosecutor Robert Mueller, reavealed an investigation into the Russian Federation’s intervention, said he is leaving the post and did not want to testify before the U.S. Congress.
“Our investigation is complete. We are officially closing the Office of the Special Prosecutor, and I am leaving the Ministry of Justice, “Mueller told reporters.
In response to the demands of the congressmen to testify, he said that he would not say anything new, since all his testimony is already in the report released earlier.
The U.S. special prosecutor also stated that the investigation into President Donald Trump could not have led to charges, as it would be contrary to the country’s Basic Law.
“The president may not be charged with committing federal crimes while he is in his post. This would be contrary to the Constitution, “Mueller said, explaining why there were no specific charges against Trump.
“The appointment of a special prosecutor gave us powers to investigate the actions of the President, which could lead to obstruction of justice, “he said.
Mueller once again stressed that there were attempts from outside to intervene in the 2016 election process, and stated that it was for every American.
In March 2019, a team of U.S. special prosecutor Muller finalized a report on RUSSIA’s alleged intervention in the 2016 elections in the United States and handed it over to the U.S. Attorney general. In the message to the Congress, the Prosecutor General announced that the investigators did not reveal signs of collusion between the Russian Federation and Trump’s pre-election headquarters.
