Mueller: ‘Insufficient Evidence of the President’s Culpability’ in Crime Related to Interference

During his testimony before the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, Special Counsel Robert Mueller stated that his investigation “found insufficient evidence of the president’s culpability” in crimes related to Russian election interference and agreed that the investigation didn’t establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with Russian interference.

House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Doug Collins (R-GA) asked, “Is it true the evidence gathered during your investigation — given the questions that you’ve just answered, is it true the evidence gathered during your investigation did not establish that the president was involved in the underlying crime related to Russian election interference as stated in volume I, page 7?”

Mueller answered, “We found insufficient evidence of the president’s culpability.”

Collins then asked, “That would be a yes?”

Mueller responded, “Yes.”

Collins also asked, “Is [it] true your investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in election interference activity, volume I, page 2, volume I, page 173?”

Mueller answered, “Yes.”
