- Mueller announces the office of special counsel is being wound up
- Mueller says a president cannot be charged with a federal crime while in office
- Mueller says charging Trump was “not an option we could consider”
Robert Mueller, the special counsel who investigated Russian election meddling and alleged links to Donald Trump’s campaign, will give an unexpected statement on Wednesday morning.
It will be Mr Mueller’s first public comments since he handed in his 448-page report, which concluded there was no criminal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.
It is unclear what triggered the statement or what Mr Mueller will be addressing exactly.
The statement will take place at 4pm UK time on camera and will not be followed by questions.
