Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R), who is mulling launching a Republican presidential primary challenge to Trump in 2020, ripped into President Trump over his “more than disappointing” conduct detailed in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report and said “it’s worse than I’ve seen in my career observing & working with presidents or public officials. America deserves better.”
“It’s unacceptable & not behavior we should expect from our president. It’s worse than I’ve seen in my career observing & working with presidents or public officials,” he wrote.

Mueller’s 448-page report documented ten potential instances of obstruction of justice based on testimony by current and former White House officials.
Mueller’s team of investigators found “multiple acts by the President that were capable of exerting undue influence over law enforcement investigations.”
“The President’s efforts to influence the investigation were mostly unsuccessful, but that is largely because the persons who surrounded the President declined to carry out orders or accede to his requests,” Mueller wrote.
