"Democrats...have tried to line up an attack on Barr as the front edge of their allegation against what they call a corrupt Trump administration and their attempts to obstruct. Mr. Mueller just brushed that back."

MSNBC’s chief legal correspondent Ari Melber said that Special Counsel Robert Mueller brushed back Democrats’ allegations that President Trump’s administration attempted to obstruct justice following Mueller’s press conference on Wednesday.

Mueller addressed reporters on Wednesday regarding the findings of his 18-month investigation into whether Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign colluded with the Russian government and subsequently obstructed justice.

“On the scene, this was vintage Bob Mueller. No questions, no bull, and just laying out what he’s already laid out in the report. He basically quoted the key highlights in this report, and in so doing, I think a fair reading of what he said would rebut the White House and parts of what his boss Bill Barr had said about him,” Melber said.

“But then he went out of his way to say he doesn’t question the quote, ‘good faith,’ of Attorney General Bill Barr, his boss,” Melber said. “That is huge because Democrats in Congress have tried to line up an attack on Barr as the front edge of their allegation against what they call a corrupt Trump administration and its attempts to obstruct. Mr. Mueller just brushed that back.”
