Barr Called Out for ‘Striking Contradiction’ Between His Comments and Mueller’s Report

Special Counsel Robert Mueller ultimately did not accuse President Trump of crimes - but he did paint an unflattering portrait of a foul-mouthed executive who believed the Russian Federation probe would lead to his demise. Today, he told reporters that he "disagreed with some of the Special Counsel's legal theories", though, not yet having the report in hand, the press had no way of knowing which theories he was talking about. This is the end of my Presidency.

Democrats have demanded the full report, which Barr has said is redacted to protect grand jury material, sensitive intelligence, matters that could affect ongoing investigations and damage to the privacy rights of third parties, be made public to get a clearer picture of Mueller's investigation and conduct Congressional oversight.

One of the most talked-about sections of the report details the president's expletive-filled horror when he learned that a special counsel was being appointed in May 2017.

Mueller declined to call any of the actions criminal - but he intentionally left room for Congress to arrive at another conclusion.

"If we had confidence after a thorough investigation of the facts that the President clearly did not commit obstruction of justice, we would so state", the report read. However, according to interviews the special counsel conducted with his associates, then-candidate Trump was taking the prospect of discovering the emails seriously.

It also concluded, as Barr announced last month, that Trump and his campaign had not engaged in a criminal conspiracy with Russian Federation during the election.

The process of releasing the report has come under fire from Democrats, dismayed by the Justice Department's coordination with the White House to seemingly spin the report before it has been handed over to Congress.

The 448-page report was divided into two volumes.

Mueller's investigation does not say that Trump knew the WikiLeaks publications had been provided by Russian intelligence, but does point to unexplained coincidences and gaps in what the investigators were able to discover.

Comedian Zelenskiy keeps Ukraine presidential poll lead
Poroshenko, who is trailing in opinion polls, called a rally of several thousand people in the capital ahead of Friday's debate. Poroshenko and Zelenskiy will meet in the second round of Ukraine's presidential election, which will take place on April 21.

In one, Trump said that his comment during a 2016 political rally asking Russian hackers to help find emails scrubbed from Clinton's private server was made "in jest and sarcastically" and that he did not recall being told during the campaign of any Russian effort to infiltrate or hack computer systems.

Trump's re-election campaign claimed in a statement on Thursday that the president "has been fully and completely exonerated yet again".

"The President said the position of Attorney General was his most important appointment and that Sessions had 'let [him] down, '" comparing him to Barack Obama's Attorney General Eric Holder and Robert Kennedy, the attorney general for and brother of John F. Kennedy.

As the attorney general acknowledged, a odd confluence of events caused Donald Trump to enter the White House with a cloud over his presidency.

That's what Mueller's probe really was: a taxpayer-funded anti-Trump opposition research team hiding behind a veneer of official legitimacy.

Mr Trump's legal team earlier described the report as a "total victory". The episodes included Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey, the president's directive to subordinates to have Mueller fired and efforts to encourage witnesses not to cooperate.

"Even if a single email was recovered and the providence [sic] of that email was a foreign service, it would be catastrophic to the Clinton campaign", Ledeen said in her message to Smith, according to the report.

Russian Federation has denied any meddling in the US election.
