WASHINGTON (1010 WINS) -- Hundreds of former federal prosecutors from both political parties are weighing in on the redacted version of the Mueller Report, and their conclusion is not good for President Trump.


The letter says that the president would be facing multiple felony charges were it not for his office.

"We believe strongly that, but for the OLC memo, the overwhelming weight of professional judgment would come down in favor of prosecution for the conduct outlined in the Mueller Report," the letter said.

The letter cites efforts to fire Mueller and 'falsify evidence about that effort,' efforts to limit the scope of the Muller investigation, and efforts to prevent witnesses from cooperating with the investigation as acts that would satisfy an obstruction charge.

Attorney General William Barr has said that there was not enough evidence to warrant prosecuting Trump for obstruction.
