of federal rules. take a listen. >> the order appointing we special counsel authorized us to investigate actions that could obstruct the investigation. we conducted that investigation and we kept the office of the acting attorney general appraised of the progress of our work. as set forth in the report, after that investigation, if we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so. >> the u.s. president was quick to react to the statement from robert mueller, putting out a tweet saying that the case is closed. for more on the wednesday statement, we have this report from washington. time inwas the f first two years, the first time during the whole russia investigation that we actually heard the voice of robert mueller. also the only time that we will probably see him speaking in public about the investigation. so, this was supposed to bring us a sense of closure, but it certainly did not.
