Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller testified Wednesday that he could not recall another person - other than President Donald Trump – who was not exonerated by the Justice Department because it couldn’t conclusively prove his innocence.

At a House hearing on Mueller’s Trump-Russia investigation, Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas) asked Mueller to cite the Justice Department (DOJ) policy or principle that “sets forth a legal standard sets forth a person is not exonerated if their criminal conduct is not conclusively determined.” Mueller could not.

“It doesn’t exist,” Rep. Ratcliffe declared, then asked if Mueller could recall another time “where the Justice Department determined that an investigated person was not exonerated because their innocence was not conclusively determined?”

“I cannot,” Mueller answered.
