MSNBC's Chris Matthews said it is "startling" that there were no indictments following the conclusion of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation. Matthews questioned why there was no "interrogation" of President Trump following the announcement that Mueller submitted his report to the U.S. Attorney General on Friday.
"Why was there never an interrogation of this president?" Matthews asked. "We were told for weeks by experts, you cannot deal with an obstruction of justice charge or investigation without getting to motive. You cannot get to motive unless you hear it from the person himself who's being targeted, a subject of the investigation."
"How can they let Trump off the hook?" Matthews demanded.
"So far tonight we have no reason to believe Trump is going to be charged by rhetoric in the document itself, in the Mueller report, no he will not be charged with obstruction or collusion without ever having to sit down with the special counsel Mueller and answer his damn questions. How can that happen?" Matthews asked Friday night.
Matthews calls it "startling" that there will be no further indictments:
