Hillary Clinton weighed in on special counsel Robert Muellers report in a Wednesday op-ed and compared “the presidents possible obstruction of justice” to the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
The 2016 Democratic nominee for president claimed in the op-ed that the Mueller report revealed a “serious crime against Americans” committed by President Donald Trump. Her allegations come after Attorney General William Barr announced on April 18 there was no evidence Trump conspired with Russians or committed an obstruction of justice.

“Congress cant forget that the issue today is not just the presidents possible obstruction of justice — its our national security,” Clinton wrote in The Washington Post. “After 9/11, Congress established an independent, bipartisan commission to recommend steps that would help guard against future attacks.”
“We need a similar commission today to help protect our elections,” Clinton continued. “This is necessary because the president of the United States has proved himself unwilling to defend our nation from a clear and present danger.”
