Report: Special Counsel Robert Mueller 'Did Exactly What Comey Accused Trump of Doing'

Special counsel Robert Mueller did almost exactly what James Comey accused President Trump of doing during his Senate testimony last week, according to a book by former Georgia Congressman Bob Barr.

Former FBI Director James Comey claimed that Trump told him: "I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go. He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go."

Trump has denied such a conversation took place.

A report Wednesday in the Washington Post claimed Mueller is currently investigating Trump for "potential obstruction of justice" as a result of the comments.

"According to former Georgia Congressman Bob Barr, now special counsel Mueller said nearly the same thing to him during the 1995 Congressional investigation into the 1993 stand-off in Waco, Texas that resulted in the deaths of 76 members of the Branch Davidian cult," The Daily Caller reports:
Barr, writing in his 2011 book, “The Meaning of Is: The Squandered Impeachment and Wasted Legacy of William Jefferson Clinton,” recounted a phone call with Mueller, who was then working at the Justice Department, in which he asked Barr not to “go too hard on these guys.”

Barr recounts Mueller as saying, “Bob, don’t go too hard on these guys. We know most of them, and they’re good people.”

It went unnoticed at the time, as Mueller was out of government service when the book was written.
Incidentally, Mueller wasn't charged with "obstruction of justice" over the comments, yet now it appears he's looking into charging President Trump for doing the same.
