Mueller said charging Trump was ‘not an option’ in a statement on the Russia probe

By  | 

Discussing the obstruction section of his report, Mueller says that charging the president was “not an option” that they could consider because of longstanding DOJ policy that a sitting president cannot be charged with a crime while they are in office. He added, “Beyond department policy, we were guided by principles of fairness.” Continuing, that it would be unfair to accuse someone of a crime when it “couldn’t be resolved in court”.
