Jordan, R-Ohio, claimed that "Hannity" Mueller appeared on Wednesday to have no reason to make a public statement earlier this day in the Ministry of Justice.
"What did we learn during the nine minutes and 39 seconds of Mr. Müller's press conference?" Asked Jordan, a member of House Freedom Caucus, "We have learned that there are no collusion and no disabilities, so that was a big challenge for me – if the report speaks for itself, why did you have to hold a … press conference? ? "

In a montage on "Special Report," Barr's public commentary was compared to Müller's public commentary on the Russia investigation.
The Department of Justice, in a statement on Wednesday evening, attempted to resolve some concerns over conflicts.
"The Attorney General has previously stated that the Special Representative repeatedly affirmed that he did not say so, but that for O. LC [Office of Legal Counsel] he states that he has stated that the President is obstructing the judiciary. From the report of the Special Counsel and his statement today, it was clear that the bureau had come to the conclusion that in one way or another it would not make a decision about whether the president had committed a crime. There is no conflict between these statements, "said Kerri Kupec, a spokeswoman for the DOJ and the Special Representative's office to Fox News.
