Mueller Declined to Decide on Charging Trump With Obstruction Because of DOJ Policy Against It

 
 
 
Contrary to what Attorney General William Barr told reporters earlier Thursday morning, Special Counsel Robert Mueller took into account DOJ policy against prosecuting a sitting president.

He also made clear it is up to Congress to decide on Trump's fate:

“We concluded that Congress has authority to prohibit a president’s corrupt use of his authority in order to protect the integrity of the administration of justice," the report says, according to Bloomberg.
