BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Special Counsel Robert Mueller announced Wednesday morning that he is resigning and closing the office of the Special Counsel, and emphasized that his report did not clear the president of wrongdoing. WBZ-TV political analyst Jon Keller weighed in Mueller's announcement.
Keller believes this wasn't just a routine statement by Mueller—he told WBZ NewsRadio's Jim MacKay it was meant to push back on mischaracterizations of his report by those in the Trump orbit.
"What Mueller said today was like a flashing neon sign saying look, the spin out of the Trump White House about what I've found is bogus," Keller said. "He made it clear that he would have said so if the president were cleared of having committed crimes here. He underscored the importance of obstruction of justice, for which he documents in his report ten separate cases where he believes the president may have engaged in it, and he also clapped back at efforts by the Trump universe to besmirch the integrity of the investigation."
Keller and MacKay also talked about the likelihood of whether or not Mueller will testify and the possibility of impeachment proceedings against the president. Listen to the full clip below.
