Ex-FBI Director James Comey: I ‘Don’t Care’ About Conclusions of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Report

Former FBI director James Comey says it makes no difference to him what special counsel Robert Mueller concludes in his report on the Russia probe —as long as the investigation is “complete and unbiased.” “I have no idea whether the special counsel will conclude that Mr. Trump knowingly conspired with the Russians in connection with the 2016 election or that he obstructed justice with the required corrupt intent. I also don’t care,” he wrote in an op-ed for The New York Times published Thursday. Comey said that he only cares about Mueller being able to “finish his work, charge whatever cases warrant charging and report on his work.” “I am rooting for a demonstration to the world—and maybe most of all to our president and his enablers—that the United States has a justice system that works because there are people who believe in it and rise above personal interest and tribalism,” he wrote. His “one hope,” he wrote, is that Congress does not move to impeach Trump while he is still in office, because then a “significant portion of this country would see [the move] as a coup.”
