Mueller report summary released, showing no proof Trump team conspired with Russia
Attorney General William Barr on Sunday released the “principal conclusions” of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s completed Russia probe in a bombshell four-page letter to Capitol Hill lawmakers, which stated definitively that Mueller did not establish evidence that President Trump’s team or any associates of the Trump campaign had conspired with Russia to sway the 2016 election – “despite multiple offers from Russian-affiliated individuals to assist the Trump campaign.”
For Trump, who has tweeted more than 230 times that he did not collude with Russians amid a torrent of allegations from media and political figures, the moment amounted to a near-total vindication. Although Mueller noted that his report was not an “exoneration” of Trump on obstruction, Barr wrote, the “report does not recommend any further indictments, nor did the Special Counsel obtain any sealed indictments that have yet to be made public.”
“No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION,” Trump wrote on Twitter Sunday afternoon. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!" . . .
I have always wondered WHY, if people REALLY think the Russians were attempting to “influence” the election. . . .
. . . WHY in the world would investigators NEGLECT to look into Hillary’s campaign!?
Bernie, and Jill’s too.
I mean after all. Are we to think “Putin” would be sitting around and conspiring.
Then a subordinate suggest something like . . . .
Subordinate: “Comrade Putin. We must infiltrate the American campaigns. And get them to vote as we want them to vote.”
Putin: No Ivan. We ignore all campaigns. Except we go after the businessman’s campaign with no political experience.
That way, we’ll accomplish all our goals.
We will leave Hillary alone.
Ivan: Brilliant plan comrade Putin!
We go after the businessman and leave all other campaigns alone! We are going for maximal influence!
