6 TAKEAWAYS FROM MUELLER TESTIMONY
1)Former special counsel Robert Mueller refuted President Trump's key claims about the Muller Report in the first few minutes of questioning.
President Trump has repeatedly insisted the Mueller's report totally exonerated him but Mueller, in his highly anticipated testimony before the House Judiciary Committee Wednesday morning, said that was not accurate.
2)MULLER could not confirm President's involvement either
Trump campaign officials had interactions with Russians, but Mueller could not prove they "willfully violated the law"
3) Trump answered questions with a version of "I don't recall" more than 30 times
After efforts to negotiate an in-person interview with Mr. Trump, Mueller's office settled on a written questionnaire in which Mr. Trump responded that he had "no recollection" almost three dozen times.
4) A number of people lied during the Russia probe
Michael Flynn, Roger Stone, George Papadopolous, Michael Cohen, Paul Manafort and Richard Gates were all charged with making false statements, either to law enforcement, Congress or the Department of Justice.
5) There were no charges for the Trump Tower meeting for campaign finance violations
On June 9, 2016, Trump Jr., Manafort and Kushner took a meeting with a Russian lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, at Trump Tower in New York City. But he said he could not prove the participants knew their conduct was illegal at the time the event took place.
6) Trump campaign officials had interactions with Russians, but Mueller could not prove they "willfully violated the law"
Trump campaign officials, including Carter Page, George Papadopoulos,Micheal Flynn, Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and Paul Manfort, all had contacts with Russians. The Office ultimately concluded that, even if the principal legal questions were resolved favorably to the government, a prosecution would encounter difficulties proving that Campaign officials or individuals connected to the Campaign willfully violated the law," the report said.
