Hillary Blames Justice Department Rules For Mueller's 'Failure' To Indict Trump
Clinton claims there is a 'roadmap' to an obstruction charge is in plain sight
Clinton claims there is a "roadmap" to an obstruction charge that's in plain sight if Congress chooses to go down that route.
"I think there is enough there that any other person who had engaged in those acts would certainly have been indicted," Clinton told an audience at the Time 100 summit.
Despite the Mueller's report completely vindicating Donald Trump of any wrongdoing, Clinton suggested that despite the report failing to substantiate the criminal accusations against the president, it was "the end of the beginning" of what could be a beautiful impeachment.
"The whole matter of obstruction was very directly sent to the Congress," she said, blaming a "rule in the Justice Department that you can't indict a sitting president" for the investigation's failure.
"As I read it, basically what I thought it was saying is: look, we think he obstructed justice, here are 11 examples of why we think he obstructed justice, but we're under the control of the Justice Department, and their rule is you can't indict.
"But… there is this thing called the Congress. You could not be more explicit!"
Clinton also clearly displayed she is still blaming Russia, reminding the e audience that "It's a story that needs to be told, and retold, over and over again, because we were the subject of a foreign adversary's attack."
"There's still so much more that we should know and that we should act upon and obviously that's what the Congress is trying to figure out – what to do right now," Clinton said.

No, I think you’re referring to the private email server in your basement containing Top Secret material. Which was also hacked by China, and who knows who else. That’s what anyone would be in prison for.— Devin Nunes 2024 🇺🇸 (@trippy_trader) April 23, 2019
How someone who only escaped charges of espionage & lying to the FBI because of her position & contacts can be so oblivious to her situation amazes me. The sense of entitlement this woman possesses is astounding. She’s one of Trump’s greatest assets for a 2020 landslide.— Dave Burgess (@daverburgess) April 23, 2019
Yup. That's pretty much what everyone else who read the Report concouded, too.— Mark Tully (@MarkTully20) April 23, 2019
"Every American who cares about holding our adversaries accountable" should read the unredacted report "to prevent what happened from ever happening again."
In March, Clinton said before the Russia report being concluded that even if Mueller found nothing, there should be a new investigation into alleged collusion.
Hillary urged the Democratic Congress to "keep digging" during a podcast with former Daily Beast chief Tina Brown recorded last week.“
There are enough grounds in what has already been made public for the government, for Congress, in particular, to be doing more with it,” Clinton said.
Speaking to "Fox & Friends," the political strategist said he worked with Bill Clinton on his impeachment proceedings in 1998, and after it was over, Americans didn't want to hear any more about it.
“The question really is will America say the same thing or will Democrats keep pushing this as though they need to do an investigation even bigger than the Mueller investigation, which is impossible given the resources that he had,” said Penn.
