Perez Calls Mueller Report ‘a Sad Day’ for Presidency

On Fox News Channel’s Special Report Thursday, DNC Chair Tom Perez said that the release of the Special Counsel report exonerating President Trump from collusion with Russia was “a sad day for the institution of the presidency” and the Department of Justice.

“I think it was a sad day for the institution of the presidency, a sad day for the institution of the Department of Justice, and there’s more work to be done,” Perez said. “This is what they said, Mueller, ‘if we had confidence after a thorough investigation of the facts that the president clearly did not commit obstruction of justice, we would so state. Based on the facts and the applicable legal standards, however, we are unable to reach that judgment.’ So the notion that there’s no obstruction is just hogwash.”
