Former special counsel Robert Muller's testimony before Congress shows the American people the "case is closed" for the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, Jay Sekulow, one of President Donald Trump's attorneys, tweeted Wednesday.
Sekulow tweeted his statement on Twitter:
"This morning's testimony exposed the troubling deficiencies of the Special Counsel’s investigation. The testimony revealed that this probe was conducted by a small group of politically-biased prosecutors...
"...who, as hard as they tried, were unable to establish either obstruction, conspiracy, or collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. It is also clear that the Special Counsel conducted his two-year investigation unimpeded.
"The American people understand that this issue is over. They also understand that the case is closed."
Mueller during the testimony said his investigation did not clear Trump of obstruction and also discussed what he called Moscow's "sweeping and systematic" meddling in the election.
"Over the course of my career, I've seen a number of challenges to our democracy," he said. "The Russian government's effort to interfere in our election is among the most serious."
The special counsel also agreed it was "correct" to say Trump tried to protect himself by asking staff to falsify records relevant to an ongoing investigation.
"I would say that's generally the summary," Mueller said.
