Shepard Smith Tells Fox News Viewers to Read the Mueller Report: It 'Did Not Exonerate' Trump

https://www.mediaite.com/tv/shepard-smith-tells-fox-news-viewers-to-read-the-mueller-report-it-did-not-exonerate-trump/


Fox News anchor Shepard Smith urged his viewers to read Robert Mueller’s report in its entirety on Tuesday, emphasizing that the special counsel did not exonerate President Donald Trump.

While covering the battle between House Democrats and the Justice Department over the Mueller report, Smith noted that the Russia investigation found multiple instances of potential obstruction on behalf of Trump, but that the special counsel followed DOJ guidelines in declining to prosecute the sitting president.

“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, referring to Mueller’s suggestion that Congress take up his report.

8. Now if we can just get people talking about all the compromising evidence of collusion in Vol. I

(aiding and abetting, bribery, etc.), we might get somewhere. Not to mention all the compromising interactions between the Trump campaign and UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Israel, and Egypt . . .
