Former AG Mukasey: Still Haven't Seen Evidence of Trump-Russia Collusion or Obstruction
Judge Michael Mukasey said he still has not seen definitive evidence that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia in 2016 or that President Trump committed obstruction of justice.
The former U.S. attorney general argued that Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation is at the same place today as it was when Mueller took over the ongoing probe in May 2017.
"We know that the Russians hacked. They hacked the Democrats, they hacked one of their functionaries. They did that [and] a bunch of Russians have been indicted for doing that," Mukasey said on "America's Newsroom." "But there's been no connection made between that and any activity by the Trump campaign."
He added that the memos former FBI Director James Comey wrote about his private meetings with President Trump do not contain any evidence that Trump attempted to interfere in the Russia probe.
"If Comey felt that he was put upon, you would expect to find that in the memos," Mukasey said.
He concluded that he doesn't yet perceive any legal jeopardy for the president, and all the ominous headlines are purely speculative.
"It's kind of like the guy who tells you, 'If we had some ham, we could have some ham and eggs, if we had some eggs.' There's nothing on either end of that."
