Ex-FBI Official: Mueller Report is Perhaps Brightest Day for Trump. Questions Why Mueller Let Barr Decide on Obstruction

By Allan Lengel

Former FBI Assistant Director Frank Figliuzzi calls the Mueller report “perhaps the brightest day of the Trump Presidency so far.”

Figliuzzi, who spent 25 years at the FBI  and worked alongside Robert Mueller, tells News 4 Tucson’s Eric Fink he’s surprised by Mueller’s decision to let Attorney General William Barr make the call on whether President Donald Trump obstructed justice.

“He’s allowed Congress to say I see a window of opportunity here because you, sir, did not exonerate him,” Figliuzzi said. “Has Bob Mueller made himself exhibit A as a potential witness in front of Congress having to explain why he chose to do it that way.”
