In response to the public release of the Mueller report, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) Executive Director and former federal corruption prosecutor Noah Bookbinder released the following statement:

“Despite the repeated spread of misinformation from the Attorney General and the president, the Mueller Report is clear: there is significant evidence that President Trump obstructed justice. This report does not clear President Trump; to the contrary, it explicitly states that the investigation was unable to reach the conclusion that Trump did not obstruct justice. He was not charged, according to the report, because Mueller’s team ‘determined not to make a traditional prosecutorial judgment,’ not for lack of evidence, which they amply and overwhelmingly supplied. Mueller’s team has done its job; now it’s time for Congress to do its job and hold hearings into abuse of power by the President of the United States.”
