Barr: Evidence Mueller Found Not 'Sufficient' To Charge Trump With Obstruction

Mueller report finds no evidence Trump colluded with Russia

With respect to the obstruction question, it's not clear whether Trump's claim applies to Mueller's report - or to Mueller's report plus the Barr and Rosenstein conclusion.

We knew that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein offered to wear a wire as part of an aborted coup attempt against the president.

Despite the fact Russian Federation very clearly manipulated potential voters with divisive messaging on social media, the Special Counsel did not find the Trump campaign worked with Russian Federation to carry out that shit-stirring. "The findings of the Department of Justice are a total and complete exoneration of the President of the United States". The resolution also could deflate the hopes of Democrats in Congress and on the 2020 campaign trail that incriminating findings from Mueller would hobble the president's agenda and re-election bid. Despite Trump's claim of total exoneration, Mueller did not draw a conclusion one way or the other on whether he sought to stifle the Russian Federation investigation through his actions including the firing of former FBI director James Comey.

Federal rules say special counsel reports are confidential, Barr wrote, though he as Attorney General can weigh public interest to decide what to release.

In a brief discussion of why Barr and Rosenstein decided not to bring an obstruction charge, Barr noted that Mueller had found no coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation on Russia's election meddling efforts.

But according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network , the New England Patriots will host the Sunday Night Football game instead. Green Bay lead the series 97-95-6 in the regular season, with the clubs splitting two postseason meetings.

However, Mueller found no evidence of such links, according to a brief summary of the still confidential report provided by Attorney General William Barr.

"The special counsel did not (...) draw a conclusion - one way or the other - as to whether the examined conduct constituted obstruction", Barr's letter stated.

In an e-mailed statement, McGovern said Trump advisors have lied to investigators and noted the indictments filed against some of them.

Earlier this month he launched the Democrats' most ambitious investigation yet into alleged obstruction of justice and abuse of office by Trump, targeting 81 individuals and entities.

Thirty-four people, including six Trump aides and advisers, were charged in the investigation.

"This was an illegal takedown that failed", Trump said on Sunday, even though Mueller left open the question of whether the former real estate magnate had attempted to obstruct the Russian Federation probe, which did find extensive evidence that Russian Federation meddled in the 2016 election. Trump pressures Comey to make a public statement to that effect.

But Trump and the White House welcomed the report as a "complete exoneration" nonetheless.

Trump was at his Florida estate when lawmakers received the report. A senior Justice Department official says Mueller was not consulted about the letter.

Barr said the decision was left to him by Mueller, and he said there was not enough evidence to move forward with such a charge.

"Congress requires the full report and the underlying documents so that the Committees can proceed with their independent work, including oversight and legislating to address any issues the Mueller report may raise", the Democratic leaders said. "A communist country, Russia, clearly interfered in the 2016 election and is poised to do so again unless we come together in a bipartisan way to protect our elections".

Baylor has big guards who are able to dominate the glass, while Syracuse has a big size advantage in the paint. Tyus Battle , Howard's backcourt mate, would seem a likely candidate, though Boeheim would not tip his hand.

The question for Trump now is whether he will be able to bring a minimum of discipline to his campaign messaging and to the presidency itself. Innuendo in the press is running wild-the narrative is already dragging the administration down, and Trump is not the kind of executive who takes a passive approach to media or expects passivity and patience from his employees when he's attacked.
