The former special counsel Robert Mueller on Wednesday 29 May 2019, in his first public, televised statement regarding the investigation he led into Russian election interference, said if he’d determined President Donald Trump didn’t commit a crime of obstruction, he “would have said so.”

“As set forth in the report, after that investigation, if we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so,” Mueller said. “We did not, however, make a determination as to whether the president did commit a crime.”

The special counsel’s report outlined 11 possible instances of obstruction by Trump but declined to make a conclusion on whether the president committed a crime.
