MN lawmakers respond to the Mueller report summary

The Republican chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee says his panel will "unpack the other side of the story" of special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into President Donald Trump and his campaign. "They've done so many evil things".

"Attorney General Barr, who auditioned for his role with an open memorandum suggesting that the obstruction investigation was unconscionable and that it was nearly impossible for any president to commit obstruction of justice since he is the head of the executive branch, made a decision about that evidence in under 48 hours", Nadler said. And Congress will have its turn: the House Judiciary Committee announced its investigation earlier this month.

Graham is the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which is investigating whether the Federal Bureau of Investigation under Comey misled a secret court in order to obtain a surveillance warrant on a Trump-campaign associate, Carter Page.

"Lindsey Graham said, 'oh, Bob Mueller sent it up to Attorney General Barr to decide.' There's no evidence that's true", she continued. The fact that Mueller opted not to make a specific recommendation on obstruction of justice may have convinced Barr to weigh in, but he could have just left it at Mueller opting not to accuse Trump of a crime.

Still, Democrats renewed their commitment to continue their own investigations into the president on Russian Federation and beyond.

"I think this is the weakest part of Attorney General Barr's conclusions", said Jessica Levinson, a professor at Loyola Law School in Los Angeles. If the report says that the investigation concludes that no one from the campaign was involved in the election rigging stuff, then it really says that.

But while Mueller was categorical in ruling out criminal collusion, he was more circumspect on presidential obstruction of justice. Although Mueller determined that there was no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, he was able to charge and prove other crimes by Trump associates.

President Donald Trump gives two thumbs up after stepping off Marine One on the South Lawn of the White House, Sunday, March 24, 2019.

Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was sentenced to 7½ years in prison.

Regardless of how the dispute over indicting a sitting president might have been settled, by pushing the ultimate prosecutorial decisions to political appointees, Mueller made himself the anti-Loretta Lynch. When it comes to obstruction of justice, Mueller did not reach an unequivocal conclusion. The full Mueller report must be made public to hardworking Americans who deserve to know all of the facts.

Trump annule des sanctions parce qu'il "apprécie" Kim Jong Un

On Sunday, Barr said in a four-page summary that Mueller's team had not found evidence of criminal conspiracy between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation in the 2016 election and had left unresolved the issue of whether Trump obstructed justice.

"You also golfed with him though, right?" another reporter asked.

The White House immediately proclaimed victory after the letter indicating that Mueller's team could not prove collusion became public on Sunday, though that proclamation could be premature.

Celebrities who have been vocal about the Mueller investigation from the beginning shared their disdain for Barr's summary - that the Trump campaign didn't collude with Russian Federation - on Twitter.
