Rep. Joe Kennedy: Mueller's Report, Statement 'Did Not Exonerate' Trump

BROOKLINE, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — President Donald Trump tweeted the “case is closed” following Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s statement on the Russian investigation Wednesday. However, Congressman Joe Kennedy III disagrees.

Mueller said that "charging the President with a crime was therefore not an option we could consider."

WBZ NewsRadio’s Karyn Regal spoke with Kennedy about his take on Mueller’s statement.

“The Special Counsel did not exonerate the president when the report came out, and he did not do so today,” Kennedy said.

 

Kennedy said Mueller has appeared to hint that he had the information, but could not indict a sitting president. Kennedy also said Attorney General William Barr is deliberately barring the truth, and that it is time for the involved parties to raise their right hands.

“Members of the appropriate committees should be able to get some answers from the special counsel. They should be able to get answers from Don McGahn. They should be able to get answers from the attorney general — whichever other witnesses that they feel is necessary in order to flush out this story before the American public. And if the president is good to his word from his tweets, then he’s got nothing to hide and I look forward to him providing those witnesses,” Kennedy said.
