Trump okay with fully releasing Mueller report

On the other end of the spectrum, many Democrats and others who previously defended the lengthy Mueller investigation are now turning on the special counsel for his "punting" of the decision regarding charges of obstruction to AG Barr.

"All I'm interested in is them releasing the full report, the full Mueller report", said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.

The co-host of "Morning Joe" on Tuesday rhetorically asked what the critics of speculation about possible Trump campaign-Russia collusion would have "had the media do over the past two years" when lies about Russian connections were "tumbling out" of the mouths of Trump and his aides.

The president and his allies have misleadingly claimed "total exoneration" by Special Counsel Mueller, when, in fact, the probe only said, in a report that remains confidential, no evidence was found of any collusion by Trump campaign with Russians.

For comparison, the team asked more than 1,200 healthy individuals from across the same areas about their cannabis use. Taking any version of the drug on a daily basis was found to triple the chances of developing psychosis.

Speaking to reporters, Trump suggested he might seek to pursue unnamed individuals for "treasonous" acts now that the Mueller probe was over.

The former president recalled that as a state legislator he gave priority to his constituents, which helped keep his popularity high enough in IL that he could advocate for bold policy ideas. Absent a recommendation from Mueller, Barr stepped in and decided there wasn't sufficient evidence to establish that the president obstructed justice.

We should call this what it is: it's witch hunt 2.0.

While many grass-roots Democratic activists hoped that Mueller's investigation might force Trump from office, either through resignation or impeachment and conviction in the Senate, few Democratic political professionals ever shared that anticipation. I've been looking at them for a long time.

Trump addresses local union boss, Lordstown GM closure

Why then is Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell halting an attempt by Senate Democrats, to call upon the U.S. Department of Justice to release the Mueller report to the public in full, citing national security concerns and protected information if there is nothing to hide?

Barr also said Mueller's report described "multiple offers from Russian-affiliated individuals to assist the Trump campaign".

Maxine Waters, the chairwoman of the Committee on Financial Services, also signed the letter and said that Democrats want to learn of Mueller's investigation, "what work went into it, what was considered, what was not considered, and why?" The White House has demanded his resignation.

Barr, selected by Trump after Jeff Sessions resigned as attorney general late past year, took office in February.
