‘No collusion, no obstruction’ — not that CNN would admit it.

Attorney General William Barr this morning (with deputy AG Rod Rosenstein stand-ing beside him) stated, upon the release of special prosecutor Mueller’s investigative report:

There was relentless speculation in the news media about the President’s personal culpability. Yet, as he said from the beginning, there was in fact no collusion.

The Special Counsel did not find any conspiracy to violate U.S. law involving Russia-linked persons and any persons associated with the Trump campaign.

So that is the bottom line. After nearly two years of investigation, thousands of subpoenas, and hundreds of warrants and witness interviews, the Special Counsel confirmed that the Russian government sponsored efforts to illegally interfere with the 2016 presidential election but did not find that the Trump campaign or other Americans colluded in those schemes.

After carefully reviewing the facts and legal theories outlined in the report, and in consultation with the Office of Legal Counsel and other Department lawyers, the Deputy Attorney General and I concluded that the evidence developed by the Special Counsel is not sufficient to establish that the President committed an obstruction-of-justice offense.

….the White House fully cooperated with the Special Counsel’s investigation, providing unfettered access to campaign and White House documents, directing senior aides to testify freely, and asserting no privilege claims. And at the same time, the President took no act that in fact deprived the Special Counsel of the documents and witnesses necessary to complete his investigation.

Now here is how CNN on-line reported this story a good two hours after the Barr announcement. Top line merely reads:

MUELLER REPORT IS OUT

CNN’s sub-headlines can barely mention the President’s exoneration:

      Lefty’s Beautiful ardent hope dashed by Ugly Inconvenient Truth.

      I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: Lefty should have developed a Plan B in the (Heh!) unlikely event that The Great Lefty Hope screws the pooch and gets scuttled on the shoals of a fact-based reality.

      But did Lefty listen?

      Not exactly.

    this isn’t about sticking up for anyone’s “guy”. this was a lengthily, expensive, over reaching and unnecessary investigation in search of a crime that was never committed. What a waste of resources. The only beneficiaries were the left leaning news organizations and the screaming heads that show up on those channels. Enjoy the nothing burger you’re having for lunch.

    Before @Zoltar Speaks! beats me to it, from a Legal Ethics Scholar:

    ”There was insufficient evidence to prove a case, ergo insufficient evidence to prosecute, ergo insufficient evidence of a crime, ergo no crime, ergo THE PRESIDENT IS PRESUMED INNOCENT.” (bolds mine)

    The value of anything is how much of your life you’ll exchange for it.
    Conversely, the quality of your life depends on the judgement of what you invest it in.
    Meep, meep Lefties.

    To say there was no obstruction isn’t accurate. Take a look at what Mueller said about it, “Based on the facts and applicable legal standards, however, we are unable to reach that judgement”.

    And it looks like 45 would be in major trouble if it weren’t for folks like McGahn and Priebus that refused to do his bidding. Those guys saved his bacon.

    Least surprising revelation: Sarah Huckleberry Sanders has been lying to us. Second place goes to Don Jr, who according to the investigation, isn’t smart enough to know if he committed a crime.

    Best quote: ” I’m F%$#@&”.

    Just in: Mexico said the check for the wall is in the mail.

    Seriously, while 45 might make it through the rest of his first (and final) term without any more investigations, do you really think that his behavior, as described in the Mueller report, is how we want the leader of the free world to behave ?

      “is (this) how we want the leader of the free world to behave ?”

      Of course not; we want Lefty to be able ignore those parts of the Constitution and the legal process, upon which the good ol’ U. S. of A. is predicated, that they feel like ignoring.

      You know, like, the 1st, the 2nd, the 4th, the 5th, & the 12th Amendments. They would, of course try to abuse the 25th Amendment, and delete the 22nd, so the scandal-free** Hopey Changey could be reelected.

      **Unless you count Fast-n-Furious, the ACA, the VA, spying on private citizens and the A.P., the Iran Deal, siccing the IRS on his enemies, the data hacking/breach, Benghazi, ad infinitum ad nauseum.

      Seems like your hero Avenatti is a world of hurt, he still your democrat hopeful for 2020?

      And you going to help StWHOREmy Daniels repay President Trump’s legal fees? She can’t raise ALL that $293 large (PLUS accrued interest!) turning tricks at her age, especially if the light’s good…

          “Great defense of 45.”

          If “defense” means not cutting him a new one at every turn AND a cluelessly blindered following > 90 % of the lickspittle Lefty press, then guilty as charged.

          Seeing’s you, et al, hate The Donald, you must also hate record low unemployment/high employment for Blacks, Hispanics, & X-Chromosomal Units.

          I’d imagine that would be a YES.

          Why? It’s two-fold:

          A–The only politics Lefty has left is Identity Politics. Their candidates specifically, and their idiot base generally, view themselves/eachother by how many grievance boxes they check off rather than any ability to fend for themselves and and fitness to get ‘er done; complete fealty to BIG GUBMINT control isn’t A way, it’s the ONLY way

          B–Convince them they’re victims of the imagined Demon-Du-Jour: White Supremacy, White Patriarchy, Fascism, etc., etc., etc. It’s a desperately flailing/increasingly futile attempt to herd minorities and divide them, ergo, control them. But with a booming economy and all those job opportunities, that approach is getting to be a harder sell, am I right? It’s tough to convince someone they’re a victim when you don’t have your jackboot on their collective neck.

          I bet Lefty pines for the halcyon days of the old tried-n-true, signature methods they developed a while back; the KKK and Jim Crow?

          Keep It Up…WE’RE WATCHING!

      Here’s how old baldy thinks it works…
      “To say there was no obstruction isn’t accurate.”

      Here’s how the law works…

      There was insufficient evidence to prove a case, ergo insufficient evidence to prosecute, ergo insufficient evidence of a crime, ergo no crime, ergo the President is presumed innocent.

      Here’s how leftist Trump derangement critical thinking works…
