Eric Trump Thinks Mueller Was ‘Talking In Code’ Because He Didn’t Rule Out Obstruction

Eric Trump thinks special counsel Robert Mueller was trying to confuse people with his statement on Wednesday simply because he didn’t adopt the rhetoric that his father’s supporters are using to discuss the results of the probe: that there was “no collusion and no obstruction.”

“I think the guy’s done a tremendous amount to divide this country. It wouldn’t take anybody two and a half years to come up with the fact that there’s no collusion, that there’s no obstruction,” he told Fox Business Network’s Lou Dobbs on Wednesday evening.

“He said today ‘I stand by everything in the report.’ Albeit he just didn’t come out and say, ‘Guys, after two and a half years, there was no collusion and there was no obstruction,'” he continued. “He was talking in code.”

While Trump’s base of supporters and TV surrogates have characterized Mueller’s probe in the no collusion, no obstruction camp — at least up until Mueller’s statement on Wednesday — Mueller made it clear that if the team had been confident that Trump didn’t commit a crime, they would have said so.
