Immediately after special counsel Robert Mueller’s statement Wednesday, which largely emphasized and reaffirmed the conclusions of his report, Fox News’ Bret Baier said that the comments contradicted President Donald Trump’s constant “witch hunt” mantra.

“This was not, as the President says time and time again, no collusion, no obstruction. It was much more nuanced than that,” Baier said.

He added that Mueller underscored that if his team had found that Trump definitely did not commit obstruction of justice, they would have said that.

Trump tweeted soon after that there was “insufficient evidence” and that he is “innocent.”
