Trump just tried to blame Obama for Russia’s 2016 election interference

And it exposes a persistent campaign by Mr. Trump to meddle in and block Mr. Mueller's investigation, as it declines to exonerate the President of obstruction of justice. Americans - from Mueller to the 535 members of Congress to the tens of millions of registered voters in the US - have a say in what happens next.

BARR: "These reports are not supposed to be made public". But the president repeatedly sought to squelch aspects of Mueller's investigation by asking aides to take actions to pressure people.

She sees the country as being in the grip of an global crime syndicate, engaged in money laundering, fraud, and racketeering, with the express goal of bringing American democracy to its knees.

The President was also fixated on Mr. Sessions, who had recused himself from overseeing Mr. Mueller's investigation.

Three days after the interview, Trump told then-FBI director James Comey in a private meeting, "I need loyalty, I expect loyalty", according to Comey's account. He is a good guy.

"Let me assure you that whatever the issue and challenge we face, the Congress of the United States will honour its oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States to protect our democracy", she told reporters. Still, he said Mueller was bound by the Justice Department's position that a sitting president can't be indicted.

For example, the report says that Manafort, shortly after he joined the campaign in the spring of 2016, directed his deputy to share internal polling data with Kilimnik with the understanding it would be passed on to Oleg Deripaska, a Russian oligarch known to have close ties to the Kremlin.

Two, the Trump campaign had numerous contacts with Russian agents, just not in a way to prove collusion in court.

After Flynn began cooperating with Mueller in November 2017, a Trump lawyer asked for a "heads-up" if "there's information that implicates the president" - and warned Flynn's lawyer that Trump would learn about Flynn's "hostility" when the request was refused.

From day one, Congress and the American public have demanded release of the full Mueller report and all underlying documents; anything less is unacceptable. Over the next couple of weeks, he called Comey twice and made the same request. But it seems possible Russia was taking public direction from Trump, and Trump's campaign chairman was having extended interactions about the campaign and Trump's potential presidency with someone with alleged ties to Russian intelligence.

Mr Lewandowski told Mr Trump he would handle it, but instead he asked White House official Rick Dearborn to deliver the message.

THE FACTS: Actually, Barr's decision, citing the Ethics in Government Act, is inconsistent with independent counsel Ken Starr's handling of his report into whether President Bill Clinton obstructed and lied in Starr's probe.

Staffers had been told by the White House to cooperate fully with Mueller's team and answer their questions truthfully.

"The President slumped back in his chair", Mueller wrote in his report, "and said, 'Oh my God". "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".

As the audience applauded and laughed, Trump said he was going to joke and say "at least for 10 or 14 years, but we would cause bedlam if I said that".

Substantial evidence indicates that the president's attempts to remove the special counsel were linked to the special counsel's oversight of investigations that involved the president's conduct. With respect to the substance of the dinner conversation, Comey documented the President's request for loyalty in a memorandum he began drafting the night of the dinner; senior Federal Bureau of Investigation officials recall that Comey told them about the loyalty request shortly after the dinner occurred, and Comey described the request while under oath in congressional proceedings and in a subsequent interview with investigators subject to penalties for lying under 18 U.S.C, g 1001.

Following Mueller's appointment, Trump called McGahn at home in June 2017 and ordered him to have Mueller fired for conflicts of interest.
