Controversial Special Counsel Robert Mueller made a statement this morning at 11 AM Eastern.
It was Mueller’s first public statement in two years.
Mueller blames the Russians for influencing the elections.
Mueller accused Russia of working with Wikileaks to damage the Hillary Clinton campaign by releasing truthful emails between her campaign staff.
Mueller then said,
“If we had confidence the president DID NOT commit a crime we would have said so. We did not however make a determination if the president did commit a crime.”
Mueller says charging President Trump with a crime "was not an option we could consider" because of Justice Department policy against indicting a sitting president https://t.co/zsmrsrikdX pic.twitter.com/O2BApjEdfv

Mueller then said, “The president cannot be charged WHILE IN OFFICE.”
It appears he just gave Democrats permission to impeach President Trump.
