Defense Attorney Vik Bajaj discusses the meaning of exoneration after the Mueller hearing

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Exoneration. A key word from Robert Mueller’s 7-hour appearance before Congress last Wednesday.

Depending on your preferred side of the aisle, one of these two soundbites represent the signature moment from Wednesday’s testimony. The first being Mueller telling Rep. Nadler that he did not totally exonerate the President of the United States.

The second being Rep. Ratcliffe asking Mueller, “can you give me an example other than Donald Trump where the Justice Department determined that an investigated person was not exonerated, because their innocence was not conclusively determined?” Mueller answered, “I cannot but this is a unique situation.” Ratcliffe then said, “you can’t find it because I’ll tell you why, it doesn’t exist.”

Local defense attorney Vik Bajaj joined us in studio to explain what the criminal context of the term “exoneration” means. His full interview from Good Morning San Diego is at the top of the page.
