Former President Jimmy Carter told CBS’ “Sunday Morning” that he would prefer not to see President Trump impeached and that he’s willing to give the president the “benefit of the doubt” in Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

“My own preference would be that he not be impeached, but that he be able to serve out his term, because I think he wants to do a good job,” Mr. Carter, 93, said Sunday. “And I’m willing to help him, if I can help him, and give him the benefit of the doubt.”

Mr. Carter said he wished Mr. Mueller would be more transparent about whether there’s evidence that members of the 2016 Trump campaign colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

“I think Mueller’s been very successful in keeping his cards close to his vest and not revealing any plans,” he added. “But my wish is that Mr. Mueller would go ahead and make a decision, even if it’s not anything personally that President Trump has done to violate the law; then I think he ought to make that obvious. And if he has violated the law, that ought to be revealed as well.”
