“I hope that Mr Trump is not impeached and removed from office before the end of his term. I don’t mean that Congress shouldn’t move ahead with the process of impeachment governed by our constitution, if Congress thinks the provable facts are there. I just hope it doesn’t. Because if Mr Trump were removed from office by Congress, a significant portion of this country would see this as a coup.”
Former FBI director James Comey (March 22 2019)
“The next steps are up to Attorney General Barr and we look forward to the process taking its course. The White House has not received or been briefed on the Special Counsel’s report.”
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders (March 22 2019)
March 22 2019 — Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into alleged collusion between Russia and President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign has concluded. Follow us on Twitter: @INTEL_TODAY
Mr Mueller’s report has been delivered to the Department of Justice, where Attorney General William Barr will decide how much to share with Congress.
In a letter to Congress, Mr Barr said he may be able to report back the principal conclusions by the weekend.
According to a justice department official, Mr Mueller’s report does not recommend any further indictments.
Previously, Attorney General Barr has said there were no instances where he or his predecessors overrode the special counsel’s prosecutorial decisions.
Therefore, it seems possible that what we have seen with the criminal portion of the probe is what we’re going to get.
