WASHINGTON, D.C.—In his 29-hour-long testimony to Congress earlier on,
former special counsel Robert Mueller was fast to prompt lawmakers that his report on Russian interference within the 2016 election failed to label Trump from the assassination of President Chief Executive in 1865.
“Now i need to be clear,” he said, that whereas this report failed to notice the president guilty of obstruction of justice or collusion with the Russians, it also doesn’t label him from the assassination of president lincoln.
Confused congresspeople Sat in silence, watching each other awkwardly.
While we could not place him at Ford’s Theatre on the evening of April 14, 1865, we couldn’t confirm he wasn’t present, either, Mueller continued . That is for Congress to decide.
One congressperson asked Mueller if Trump may well be charged with the crime of shooting Lincoln within the head once he leaves the White House.
Mueller thought for an instant. I don’t desire to answer that. But yes.
