Exclusive: Mueller drew up obstruction indictment against Trump, Michael Wolff book claims
A new book from Fire and Fury author Michael Wolff says special counsel Robert Mueller drew up a three-count obstruction of justice indictment against Donald Trump before deciding to shelve it — an explosive claim that a spokesman for Mueller flatly denied.
The stunning revelation is contained in Siege: Trump Under Fire, which will be published on June 4. It is the sequel to Fire and Fury, Wolff’s bestseller on the first year of the Trump presidency, which was published in 2018.
The Guardian obtained a copy of Siege and viewed the documents concerned.
In an author’s note, Wolff states that his findings on the Mueller investigation are “based on internal documents given to me by sources close to the Office of the Special Counsel."
