Barr releases Mueller's report - and feels the heat

President Trump suggested air water tankers be used to douse the Notre Dame cathedral fire. He may also want to use the technique on Congress inflamed over the Mueller Report

But special counsel Robert Mueller's report reveals the president may owe his former top lawyer a debt of gratitude.

He praised the White House's cooperation with the investigation and said Trump's public and private efforts to interfere with the probe could have been fuelled by a "sincere belief" that the investigation was "propelled by his political opponents and fuelled by illegal leaks". But from Air Force One, he tweeted: "I had the right to end the whole Witch Hunt if I wanted". Mueller's report said that Cohen had not gone to Prague. I chose not to.

The redacted version of the Mueller Report was released Thursday morning by US Attorney General William Barr, detailing the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. The president proclaimed his innocence and insisted that the investigation was politically motivated.

Smith argued that Barr has twisted the Mueller report, even saying President Trump cooperated with the investigation despite the report itself indicating that the president did no such thing.

"No Collusion. No Obstruction", it said.

Parents sue NYC over mandatory measles vaccinations
Numerous measles cases a year ago were concentrated on Orthodox Jews who traveled to Israel, where a large outbreak occurred. The challenge for United States health authorities is stopping the outbreak from spreading further.

Mueller's report draws no explicit conclusions about this episode, but leaves it open that the president's actions might have constituted obstruction of justice.

Commenting on the report, journalist Glenn Greenwald noted, "The result of all of that was that not a single American-whether with the Trump campaign or otherwise-was charged or indicted on the core question of whether there was any conspiracy or coordination with Russian Federation over the election".

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) issued a statement Friday tearing into President Donald Trump over the Mueller report, declaring he was "sickened" by its findings. "But one thing I focus on, as a state attorney general, is a lack of a certain independence of the USA attorney general has from the president, and we see that throughout the report".

The report, which can be read on the DOJ's website, outlines a number of moves by President Donald Trump's administration.

House Democrats escalated the battle over access to the special counsel's report Friday when Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler issued a subpoena demanding the full document be produced to Congress. Barr should be acting as the nation's Attorney General not Trump's personal attorney. Among the selections played: "Somewhere Over the Rainbow".

Rep. Andy Barr continues war of words with Rep. Ocasio-Cortez
The Congresswoman admitted this had "muddied" her message. "I think that Netanyahu is a Trump-like figure", Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told reporters Thursday night that criticism of her and Democratic Minnesota Rep.

"The stark reality is that one might have a moderate to high confidence that decisions are being made by an American president who, in the process of getting elected and after assuming office, has acted with the interests of an often-hostile foreign power influencing him". One was about former Obama White House counsel Greg Craig, who was charged last week. They scanned for their names to see what Mueller had said about them and how he had characterized their testimony, and wondered how those depictions might sit with a mercurial president.

Nadler released via Twitter an image of a letter he had sent to Mueller requesting the special counsel's appearance. For example, they planned a "communications campaign" to be ready for the possible WikiLeaks release of stolen Clinton emails, Gates said, and Trump told him there was more to come.

Mueller says substantial evidence - including the timing, the way Trump tried to work through an unofficial intermediary and Trump's public criticism of Sessions - shows Trump did this to "prevent further investigative scrutiny of the president's and his campaign's conduct".

Any impeachment proceedings would drag into the heat of 2020 presidential campaign.

President Donald Trump and his team love to deride unfavorable stories as "fake news".

DOJ: Mueller report to be released Thursday
Democrats in Congress have demanded that Barr provide them with Mueller's full report - and all the evidence behind it. Mueller turned over a copy of his confidential report to Barr on March 22, ending his 22-month-long inquiry.

Trump says he never agreed to testify because he didn't need to respond to what he says were "total bullshit" statements made about him in the report to make someone look good or make him look bad.
