After two years of the Democrats screaming about Russian collusion it is all finally over and President Trump is cleared of any wrongdoing.
However, we all knew this years ago, but I guess the left needed to waste more taxpayers money and cause division in the country.
Here is more from Daily Mail:
Attorney General Bill Barr said Thursday that the weight of evidence in the Mueller report shows President Donald Trump did not obstruct justice – as he explained Trump’s conduct as the actions of an ‘understandably frustrated’ president who was acting out of a belief that the probe was undermining his tenure.
‘There is substantial evidence to show that the president was frustrated and angered by his sincere belief that the investigation was undermining his presidency, propelled by his political opponents and fueled by illegal leaks,’ Barr said at a press conference which lasted just 25 minutes– just hours before he said he would make public the redacted version of Mueller’s work.
He said the evidence of ‘non-corrupt motives’ on the part of the president ‘weighs heavily’ on the matter.
Barr said his characterization of the president’s sincerity wasn’t his own determination but was included in the report – although the public will have to wait a few more hours to see it.
Trump did not wait however, tweeting a Game of Thrones-inspired meme almost as soon as Barr had hastily left the stage. ‘No collusion. No obstruction. For the haters and the radical left Democrats – Game Over,’ it said.
Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein previously decided 48 hours after reviewing the Mueller report not to charge Trump with obstruction of justice – even after Barr acknowledged the report states that it does not ‘exonerate’ Trump on obstruction.
A reporter pressed Barr about his characterization of Trump’s emotions as the possible motive for his actions that drew investigation for possible obstruction. These included the firing of FBI Director James Comey.
‘Actually, the statements about his sincere beliefs are recognized in the report,’ Barr responded. ‘That there was substantial evidence for that, so I’m not sure what your basis is for saying that I am being generous to the president.’
‘President Trump faced an unprecedented situation’ when he took office, explained Barr, noting there was ‘relentless speculation’ about his ‘personal culpability’ in Russian election interference – which Barr and the report say did in fact occur.
‘Yet as he said from the beginning, there was in fact no collusion,’ said Barr, using language that the president tweeted just minutes before he took the podium.
Barr said Mueller’s team examined 10 episodes of potential obstruction offenses. But he said the evidence was ‘not sufficient.’
‘After carefully reviewing the facts and legal theories outlined in the report, and in consultation with the office of legal counsel and other department lawyers, the deputy attorney general and I concluded that the evidence developed by the special counsel is not sufficient to establish that the president committed an obstruction of justice offense,’ said Barr.
Barr said he and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein disagreed with some of theories outlined by Mueller but did not solely rely on that in making their decision not to pursue an obstruction charge against the president.
