GLENSIDE, PA – Today, Rep. Madeleine Dean addressed remarks by Special Counsel Robert Mueller: “Yet again, Special Counsel Mueller felt compelled to correct mischaracterizations of his report by President Trump and Attorney General Barr. The Special Counsel was clear: ‘if we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so.’ Mueller also reminded us that he did not have the option of indicting the president – because according to Justice Department policy, ‘a president cannot be charged with a federal crime while he is in office.’

WASHINGTON – Today, Special Counsel Robert Mueller completed his investigation into whether Russia interfered in the 2016 election – and whether anyone connected to the Trump campaign aided that effort. Rep. Madeleine Dean offered a response.
