“The special counsel did not exonerate the president," he added.

Mueller last month in his first public statement since the completion of his report said if his office “had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime we would have said so.”

The special counsel pointed to current Department of Justice guidance that says a sitting president cannot be indicted, but noted in his report that Congress has the authority to conduct obstruction investigations.
