De Niro argued for his case in an open letter with the title & # 39; Robert Mueller, We Need to Hear More & # 39; issued by the New York Times on Wednesday.

The actor who portrayed Mueller on Saturday Night Live has argued that Mueller's # 400 page & # 39; s report does not speak for itself as Mueller said, because it is not written clearly enough for the average American to understand and that President Donald Trump's statements are so loud and persistent that they must be refuted.

Advocate General William Barr has also been criticized for incorrectly summarizing the findings in the report.

& # 39; Your life is a shining example of being brave and unselfish about doing things for the good of our country. I urge you to leave your comfort zone and do it again, & De 39, wrote De Niro, addressing Mueller.

Mueller held a press conference on Wednesday where he stated that he had not cleared Trump of misconduct, but that his agency would not comment on the subject further, while announcing his resignation from the FBI.

At Mueller & # 39; s press conference on Wednesday, he told the American people to read his full report, saying: & # 39; it goes without saying & # 39; and therefore do not need any additional comment from him.

In his letter to Mueller, De Niro told Mueller that the report & # 39; does not speak for itself & # 39; for the ordinary American citizen.

& # 39; It can speak for itself to lawyers and legislators who have the patience and duty to read the more than 400 pages of carefully chosen words and nuanced conclusions (with all due respect, read as well as it is) , you are not Stephen King), & De Niro wrote.

During Mueller's two-year investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, he and his office endured a barrage of Trump attacks, which repeatedly praised the probe a & # 39; witch hunt & # 39; called.

& # 39; While I and so many Americans have admired your silent, confident, dignified response to ignore that attack, the administration allowed his own voice to control the story & # 39 ;, De Niro wrote in the letter published on Wednesday.

& # 39; And those voices are so loud and so persistent that they even subject reasonable people to submission. The loudest, stubborn voice is from the president himself and in most circumstances we want to believe our president. & # 39;

De Niro said that the (depicted) statements by President Donald Trump are so loud and persistent that they must be refuted. Mueller, however, made it clear that he announced his resignation on Wednesday, but that the Ministry of Justice has limitations in dealing with possible criminal behavior of a current supreme commander.

The White House press, Sarah Sanders, tweeted the official statement from the Trump administration after the Mueller press conference, which read in part: & # 39; The special lawyer completed the investigation, closed his office, and closed the case . Mr. Mueller said explicitly that he has nothing to add that goes beyond the report, and therefore does not intend to testify before Congress. The report was clear - there was no conspiracy, no conspiracy - and the Justice Department confirmed that there was no obstacle & # 39;

On Thursday morning, Trump tweeted, & # 39; Russia, Russia, Russia! That's all you heard at the beginning of this Witch-hunting Hoof … And now Russia has disappeared because I had nothing to do with Russia helping me to be elected. It was a crime that did not exist. So now the Dems and their partner, the Fake News Media, …..

& # 39; … say he fought back against this fake crime that did not exist, this horrible false accusation, and he should not fight back, he should just sit back and take it. Could this be an obstruction? No, Mueller did not find Obstruction either. Presidential intimidation! & # 39;

Mueller, however, was cautious about explaining the restrictions that the Ministry of Justice sees in dealing with possible criminal behavior of a sitting supreme commander while breaking his silence on Wednesday.

& # 39; A president cannot be accused of a federal crime while in office. That is unconstitutional, & # 39; Mueller said, adding: & # 39; Charging the president with a crime was therefore not an option that we could consider. & # 39;

Mueller commented: & # 39; If we were confident that the president had clearly not committed any crime, we would have said so. & # 39;

Mueller said his research was guided by principles of honesty & # 39; and as such, it would be unfair to accuse someone of a crime if it is not possible to make a court ruling on an actual charge. & # 39;

Before ending the press conference, he said that his office would not comment on other conclusions or hypotheses about the president & # 39 ;.

Some, such as Ted Lieu, a US representative in California, took the holding of a press conference by Mueller as a call to action for Congress.

& # 39; Why did Robert Mueller decide to speak today after two years of silence? & # 39; Lieu wrote before answering his own question.

& # 39; 1. Because @realDonaldTrump and his lap dog Bill Barr from @TheJusticeDept lie about what is in the Mueller report. 2. He left it to Congress to take action. And we will. No one is above the law. & # 39;

In his tweet, Lieu quoted a tweet from the verified account for the House Commission of the Judiciary, which states:

& # 39; Mueller confirmed 3 central points: he did not free @realDonaldTrump from obstruction of justice, obstruction of justice is a serious crime that hits the core of our legal system and the Constitution points out that Congress must take action to hold the president accountable & # 39;
