That conspiracy theory, which has distorted American politics for more than two years, expired in an instant Sunday when Attorney General William Barr delivered Special Counsel Robert Mueller's "principal conclusions" to Congress...
Comey's tweet followed Attorney General William Barr's announcement that Mueller did not find evidence that Trump's campaign "conspired or coordinated" with Russian Federation to influence the 2016 presidential election but reached no conclusion on whether Trump obstructed justice. Over the last two years, this effort tried to discredit and undermine the Trump presidency. And what I hope Mr. Barr will do is understand: "for the country's sake appoint somebody outside the current system to look into these allegations, somebody we all trust, and let them do what Mr. Mueller did", Graham said.
Mueller's team searched for nearly two years, but found no evidence that Trump and his campaign team conspired with Russian Federation to manipulate the 2016 presidential election. There's no argument that any grand jury materials - the reason Barr claims the report cannot be released immediately in its entirety - are implicated by just reading Mueller's own interpretation of why he could not make a traditional prosecutorial decision. "And it began illegally", Trump said on March 24.
Trump fired Comey in May 2017 upon the recommendation from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
Still, Mueller's investigation led to charges and guilty pleas against dozens of people, including a series of Russian nationals and companies as well as several top Trump advisers, such as former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn and former adviser Roger Stone.
Mueller "knew that he was not allowed, under Department of Justice policies, to indict the president", Alksne said.
But Sanders said Monday that only Barr could decide whether the full report would be released to the American people. "He's just not worth it", she told The Washington Post earlier this month. "That's good news, in general, and it's good news for President Trump". He also reiterated that he will ask Barr to testify before the House Judiciary Committee.
Democrats promptly called for the release of Mueller's full report and noted that he did not exonerate Trump on the question of whether the president obstructed justice in trying to undermine investigations into the election campaign.
The lack of info shared by AG William Barr has left voters, including celebs, with more questions than answers.
And Stephen Lynch, the MA congressman, suggested investigations of Trump could continue well beyond Mueller's purview. The president said the investigation of his campaign was started illegally and called for an investigation of those involved, which would more than likely include Comey.
Trump also still faces potential legal peril in the future from the Southern District of New York's investigation into the use of hush money during the campaign and other probes. It was a disgrace that he and the country had to suffer through the investigation, an investigation that Trump believes had only one goal from the beginning: to finish him.
