Judge Michael Mukasey said he still has not seen definitive
evidence that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia in 2016 or
that President Trump committed obstruction of justice.
The former U.S. attorney general argued that Special Counsel
Robert Mueller's Russia investigation is at the same place today
as it was when Mueller took over the ongoing probe in May 2017.
"We know that the Russians hacked. They hacked the Democrats,
they hacked one of their functionaries. They did that [and] a
bunch of Russians have been indicted for doing that," Mukasey
said on "America's Newsroom." "But there's been no connection
made between that and any activity by the Trump campaign."
He added that the memos former FBI Director James Comey wrote
about his private meetings with President Trump do not contain
any evidence that Trump attempted to interfere in the Russia
"If Comey felt that he was put upon, you would expect to find
that in the memos," Mukasey said.
He concluded that he doesn't yet perceive any legal jeopardy for
the president, and all the ominous headlines are purely
"It's kind of like the guy who tells you, 'If we had some ham,
we could have some ham and eggs, if we had some eggs.' There's
nothing on either end of that."
