I listened to some of the hearings, but I obviously didn't listen to the right things.“It was one of the worst performances in the history of our country,” Trump says of Mueller’s testimony pic.twitter.com/67fndJIC7D— Jordan Fabian (@Jordanfabian) July 24, 2019
Wait a minute....Trump was just asked by a reporter if he was worried that he could be indicted out of office, which Mueller testified could happen. The president called the inquiring journalist “fake news” and “one of the worst," per pooler @hunterw.— Philip Rucker (@PhilipRucker) July 24, 2019
“Could you charge the president with a crime after he left office?” [Rep Ken] Buck asked.
“Yes,” Mueller said, without hesitation.
“You believe that he committed — you could charge the President of the United States with obstruction of justice after he left office?” Buck continued.
“Yes,” Mueller agreed.
From pooler @hunterw, a weird take from someone who's claimed Mueller exonerated him over and over: "Asked about the fact Mueller did not exonerate him, Trump said the special counsel 'didn’t have a right to exonerate.'"— Maggie Haberman (@maggieNYT) July 24, 2019

NADLER: Is it correct that if you had concluded POTUS committed the crime of obstruction, you couldn't publicly state that?— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) July 24, 2019
MUELLER: The statement would be that you would not indict because of the OLC opinion.
N: But he could be prosecuted after he leaves office?

TRUMP: "If you listen to the internet, this was one of the worst performances in the history of our country ... it was a fake set of facts that the Democrats used, and others, to try and do really an illegal overthrow, but we're going find out about that." pic.twitter.com/tebNoqdjfB— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) July 24, 2019
