Keep The Story Straight: What Mueller Said Was That It’s Out of His Hands

If you’re already seeing the spin crop up in your friends’ social media posts, keep them straight. Mueller didn’t say what the Trump team claims. He did NOT say, as Sarah Sanders did:

The report was clear—there was no collusion, no conspiracy—and the Department of Justice confirmed there was no obstruction.

Sanders is correct if by, “Department of Justice” you mean only Attorney General William Barr.

What Mueller himself said is that he investigated what he was engaged to look into, and that it’s not his place to indict the president. In fact, only Congress can take action on the misdeeds of a president. And that’s called impeachment.
