On Sunday night’s episode of Fox News’ “Life, Liberty & Levin,” former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli explained why special counsel Robert Mueller’s team didn’t have a prosecutable case against Donald Trump on obstruction of justice.

Virginia’s former top prosecutor explained that Mueller’s team clearly “knew they didn’t have a prosecution to go forward with.”

Cuccinelli went onto explain that Volume II of the report, the portion dealing with obstruction of justice, “goes beyond a legal analysis” to delve into the political instead.

“You could say he’s writing for Congress, baiting Congress into, maybe, impeachment proceedings,” Cuccinelli said.

“But with so many facts laid out … we know a lot now. And there just isn’t anything there that comes anywhere close to a criminal standard,” the former AG continued. “So if Congress wants to proceed, they’re going to have to do it on the political basis that Mueller put in the second part of the report. And it is political.”
