While resigning from the Justice Department, Robert Swan Mueller tells members of US Congress the ball is in your court concerning POTUS Trump's obstruction of justice.

Mueller also reiterated a point he made in his report: It is up to Congress to pursue an investigation into whether Trump committed “high crimes.” https://twitter.com/intent/tweet?url=https%3A%2F%2Fnyti.ms%2F2KapwS0&te…
