President Trump dismissed a letter signed by more than 1,000 federal prosecutors that said he would have been indicted for obstruction of justice were he not a sitting president.
“Hey George,” Trump told George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week.” “Look, I know more about prosecutors than you’ll ever know. They’re politicians. I could get you 5,000 that would also say that there’s nothing. You know, I saw their names. And these are all — many of ’em are Trump haters. Many of ’em if you look at the names.”
He added, “I’ve been treated so unfairly ’cause I never did anything. There was no crime.”

Mueller in his report and a subsequent press conference said he and his team did not reach a conclusion on obstruction because a sitting president could not be criminally indicted.
