french jihadists tried a convicted impact. french preside though s says the guilty m men should serve their sentences in iraq . thank you very much for being with us announcing the official end of his investigation and his resignation to the us justice department. robebert mula chosese to end wia bang his revelation that his hands were tied over a possible prosecution. of the us presence will found the flames of controversy his confirmation that there were occasions when trump was actively trying to obstruct the investigation will fuel the displeasure with years ago ministration and most of all given the light to trump's claims. mullis says his report does not put the us president in the clear. the appointment order directed
3:32 pm
and as set forth in the report after. that investigation if we had had cog confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime we would have said so. wewe did not however make a determination as to whether the president did commit a crime under longstanding department policy. a present president cannot be charged with a federal crime well he is in office. that is unconstitutional. even if the charge is kept under seal and hidden from public vie. that too is prohibited. the special counsel's office is part of the department of justice and by regulation it was bound by that department policy. charging the presidentnt with a crime was therefore not. an option we could consider. robert mullerr finally speaks fr the crowther coastal waters correspond with listening to it every word that's john philip now for some more analysis. of what this could mean for the explosive stuff from what.
3:33 pm
yes it is because it means that he might go away he might be reretiring from the deparartmenf justice but the storyry d definy will knowledge because what robebert miller the special counsel did today as he had in his reports beforehand. he was essentially telling congress to take this into its own hand he was not ablble to indict a sitting president because of department of justice guidelines that he made very clear today. but he also said that congress could now not in those exact words but congress could now take this into its own hands. and investigate further in congress of course is doing exactly that the house judiciary committee a more than anybody. is still investigating might even want the special counsel to provide sworn testimony add to that committee now one word we haven't mentioned yet is of course what the president calls the i word impeachment. it is something that's more and more democrats are saying should be explored by the u. s.
3:34 pm
congress because it is only the u. s. congress. that can do such a thing there are now over fifty democrats in the house of representatives who are calling for those proceedings to begin because they believe there is enough proof in the molar reports. of obstruction of justice by the president now over fifty members of congress is actually not a loss -- that would have to be a lot more for this to actually happen and of course the body that would decide whether a president would be impeached or not would actually be the u. s. senate's this has a republican majority. all of this is very unrealistic at this point but what we learned from robert muller today is this story will not go away despite robert miller doing his very best to go away himself. by retiring and basically saying that we will hear no more from him by the way the president in the sense agreeing with that saying that the case is closed but democrats would not agree with that president with the
3:35 pm
president's point of view. of course though the president has repeatedly at trumpeted tha- he was exonerated there was no - proof of collusion against him - mula appearing to say something well the kind of opens the door towards the possibility of prosecution what's the official reaction from the white house for the it is more or less the same. reaction that we've had over the last few weeks you know that the president has tweeted many times in all capital letters and very enthusiastically -- that that was a clear conclusion in the mall a report and that was no collusion no obstruction well the white house has been that littttle bit more careful today because what robert miller clearly said today was yes there were no findings of collusion between. the russian government and the trump campaign team that we know from the reports and he made that even clearer today. but that there was no obstruction of justice that is not a conclusion by the special counsel. that was a conclusion that the that the attorney general came
3:36 pm
up with and that's william barr who was appointed for the position. by president donald trump said the white house is telling a little bit more of a castle line here. but still believes t that the president has been exonerated now here's an interesting question though going forward demomocratsome at least m might want to look at impeachment. and you know what the president's might want that to happen as well because he wants to be seen. a little bit as a victim going into the twenty twenty presidential election he wants to be seen as somebody who democrats are going off that even after the mobile report. is entirely over that's why we're seeing this tug of war right now between democrats and republicans democrats don't want to say outright that they want an impeachment to happen. and republilicans wilill some of them incluluding the president might actually what something like that to happen a to make them look more competent if you will. for the crown as ever thank you very much indeed for the cause of that our correspondent at the white hous.

3:52 pm
it is actually kind of interesting in that regard alright then decide yeah. andd it's also it but if you think the central question actually in this case is the issue of defamation i'm at the so if if me too has been criticized for anything. it has been criticized for the unilateral sort of at and decoration of sexual harassment by victims of sex harassment online so the reason to chew process you're just saying this happened to me. and there's no judge to say well actually yes and eight there's also the risk of people tell lies on and on and can also happen so this is a case that is but it is essentially looking at all of those. at central sort of ethical sources might run into it too on another side of it you had for for soso long the the side of te scale with the sexual harassment and all the applications and then do. comments and you know who will look at the press on kind of
3:53 pm
racial right weighing down yes well this isn't about you sort of look is is balanced a little bit but like you say. there's no legal you process that's right is the big issue is that it is it is a big issue about but i suppose you couldld also say thahat people might not want to go under go at that. i i legal status in the case i need to know what i mean is it a full share and to get them as a humiliation the might and see you that's right that's it. note there was a similar case recently so with the basic just gonna give a sense that the pre owned and his lawyer argued that he had been sentenced by social media. the lawyer said the debate sparked was superb but that his client had non the less been slandered so that as i said to the central african questions will be decided on by the jury does and does he admit that he set the things that yeah he say. yes good happens rating essentiaially he's not denying knocks at well if h he doeoes wt to treatat taken down i eighty d he i think he kind of feels that it draws. in any case it was another case last month at that was thrown out of court marked by danny boyle denny bhopal a former mp for the green or your college party he had been accused of sex harassment by eight different women. and it again in in the context of me to and panel simple at his claims of slandnder work from it by the court. so there is a i it would be to e intereststing to see if if at ts case centring on s sometime nowe
3:54 pm
