The special counsel’s office is flatly denying author Michael Wolff’s claim in his new book that Robert Mueller drew up a draft indictment against President Trump for obstruction of justice.
Wolff claims in “Siege: Trump Under Fire,” which will be released next week, that prosecutors drew up an indictment with three obstruction charges against Trump. The document sat on Mueller’s desk for the better part of a year and was the subject of heated debate within the special counsel’s office, Wolff claims, according to The Guardian.
Wolff claims he obtained the documents from “sources close to the Office of the Special Counsel.”
If true, it would be the strongest evidence so far that Mueller seriously considered charging Trump with obstruction of justice. Prosecutors ultimately deferred a decision on the obstruction question to Attorney General William Barr, who declined to pursue a case against Trump.
But there’s a major problem with Wolff’s allegation.
“The documents that you have described do not exist,” Peter Carr, a spokesman for the special counsel, told The Guardian in a rare on-the-record statement.
