Hillary Clinton believes the obstruction case against Trump is so strong that if it were anyone else they would be indicted for obstruction.
She blames the DOJ rule that says a sitting president can’t be indicted:
FOX NEWS – Hillary Clinton said Tuesday she believes Donald Trump would have been indicted in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe if he weren’t president, though stopped short of calling for his impeachment.
Clinton, the Democratic nominee for president in 2016, argued during a Q&A session in New York that Mueller’s report “could not be clearer” in making the case Trump tried to obstruct the Russia investigation — even though Mueller did not come to an explicit conclusion on that question.
“I think there’s enough there that any other person who had engaged in those acts would certainly have been indicted,” Clinton said at the “Time 100 Summit.” “But because of the rule in the Justice Department that you can’t indict a sitting president, the whole matter of obstruction was very directly sent to the Congress.”
Clinton, who was defeated by Trump in the election, said it’s too early to call for Trump’s impeachment. She said she supports Congress investigating Mueller’s findings “based on evidence” and without a “preordained conclusion.”
After a thorough examination in Congress, Clinton said, “If at that point they believe high crimes and misdemeanors have been committed, then I think it is the obligation of the Congress to put forward articles of impeachment.”
The facts are that Mueller’s investigation was never impeded by Trump.
It continued on for almost two years, never finding any evidence that Trump colluded with the Russians to win him the election.
Yes, Trump was frustrated. Yes, he accused Mueller publicly of trying to undermine him and his presidency. But neither the Attorney General nor the Deputy Attorney General found evidence that Trump obstructed the investigation.
And of all people, for Hillary Clinton to say this after she was let off the hook for her crimes because she was running for president – well it’s laughable. And pathetic.
