Mueller corrects testimony on Trump indictment decision

During his second hearing on Wednesday, former Special Counsel Robert Mueller said that he wanted to correct comments made earlier in which he confirmed to Democratic Representative Ted Lieu that the reason he did not bring a criminal indictment against Trump was the Justice Department's longstanding OLC policy against bringing criminal charges against a sitting president.

Rough Cut (no reporter naration).

Mueller said on Wednesday he wanted to correct the earlier exchange by saying,"we did not reach a determination as to whether the president committed a crime." Mueller made the correction in his opening remarks before the House Intelligence Committee, his second hearing of the day.

During his earlier testimony with the House Judiciary Committee, Democratic Representative Ted Lieu asked Mueller if the reason he did not bring a criminal indictment against Trump was the Justice Department's longstanding policy crafted by its Office of Legal Counsel against bringing criminal charges against a sitting president.

"That is correct," Mueller said.

Mueller's 448-page report, released in redacted form on April 18, did not reach a conclusion on whether Trump committed the crime of obstruction of justice in a series of actions aimed at impeding the inquiry, but did not exonerate him.
