Mueller should appear before Congress: Warner

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) The U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee's top Democrat Mark Warner said on Wednesday it's "important" for Congress to hear from U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Warner spoke following a statement from Mueller who said his investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 election was never going to end with criminal charges against President Donald Trump and indicated it was up to Congress to decide if impeachment proceedings are justified.

Mueller, who headed the FBI from 2001 to 2013, said he would not elaborate beyond what was contained in his 448-page report, signaling to Democrats that he was unlikely to provide them more ammunition for impeachment if he were to testify to a congressional committee.

He said his office is formally closing its doors and he is now returning to life as a private citizen.

In his first public comments since starting the investigation in May 2017, Mueller said Justice Department policy prevented him from bringing charges against a sitting president, telling reporters it was "not an option we would consider." But he also said his two-year investigation did not clear Trump of improper behavior and pointed out there were other ways to hold presidents accountable.
