Special counsel Robert Mueller’s spokesperson on Tuesday denied a claim made by “Fire and Fury” author Michael Wolff that Mueller drafted an indictment for obstruction of justice against President Donald Trump.
Wolff wrote in his new book, “Siege: Trump Under Fire,” that Mueller wrote a three-count indictment for obstruction of justice, concluding that Trump went to “extraordinary lengths… to protect himself from legal scrutiny and accountability, and to undermine the official panels investigating his actions,” but decided against issuing it. Wolff claimed to have “internal documents” that verified his claims, provided by “sources close to the Office of the Special Counsel.
However, Mueller spokesman Peter Carr told The Guardian that “The documents that you’ve described do not exist.”
After criticism over inaccuracies in his previous book, Wolff told the student publication for his alma mater, Vassar College: “I am an observer: I investigate nothing. All I do is look and write what I see and what I hear, and my job — which has nothing to do with truth — is to take what I see and what I hear and write that in a way that readers can come [as close] as possible — as close as I came — to the experience of doing this. I want to be able to turn what I see into something that a reader says ‘oh, I see that too.’”
