    Every news outlet and journalist who did not investigate this accusation thoroughly or who hid changed or eluded to accusations that were not true; should be fired and sued including Journalist from Deseret News. They have not only caused much trauma and suffering to the Trump family but they have been complicit in dividing a nation that could now lead to a civil war

    Mueller and all those who searched for Russian collusion are all Democrats who dislike Trump.

    Is it possible something negative will come from this report?

    Perhaps Trump stole a cookie in elementary school.

    Trump supporters don't you think it is interesting that your guy the President that has never hesitated to declare victory in the third quarter is silent? Pretty sure if he even remotely thought he was in the clear we would see a tweet storm.

    People need to just breathe a minute. We know our country has many good things going on and many serious problems which need to be addressed. This is true without the report. For those rapid Dems or Republicans waiting on bated breath for the report so they can explode all over the place. Life will go on after the report. We will still have elections, need to take care of our democracy and election processes to make sure they are what they need to be. We needed to be free of lobbyists and big $ in our elections before the Mueller investigation and report. In the long-term best interest of our country, we still need to be free of them after his report is made public. They eat away at our democracy and freedoms, whoever is in the office or what party is in charge.

    The challenge after the report is made public is whether parties and individuals let it divide their parties further and our country even more than it is now. The corruption in our gov't needs to be purged regardless of who is in charge.

    Let's wait to see the report to find out if trump will be indicted, says the left and trump hating hopeful.

    Unrepentant: "how sad to see people prejudge the legal process .... apparently, any and all matters to find the truth that might endanger the president are out of bounds."

    Says everyone on the left hating trump prejudging him proclaiming him as a liar, a anti semite, racist and an agent for russia.

    Pragmatist: "...you can have a finding of collusion without an indictment."

    Mueller found crimes committed and he prosecuted those who were guilty during this investigation, If he found evidence of a russian conspiracy you bet he would have recommendations for charges to be brought up against the president that was his job. But there are no recommendations for any further charges or indictments that in of itself is all to telling.

    It is basic proceedure for an investigator to bring up charges for crimes commited and make those recommendations, if mueller doesnt recommend any further indictments then why would the AG.

    When an investigation is started based on false data, steele dossier, by corrupt govt officials this is what you get.

    Trump won, its time to accept it dems.

    Trump is not above the law!...right ?
    Well, neither is he below the protection of the law.
    Would you like the Federal government to investigate everyone you had any contact with over the last two decades, find that you had committed no crimes, and then your enemies demand that all the information gathered be released to the public ? Remember that there may be some embarrassing things that people said that are not associated with any crime, and some of the people have already been convicted of lying so they are known liars about you! Should all that be released to the public as fuel for more cheap hate and rumor-mongering ?
    Mueller was mandated to investigate Russian Collusion. Mueller's determination is fair an factual. There was no Russian collusion.
    There is a principle in law that investigators do not release auxiliary information gathered during an investigation unless it is directly related to a crime. This is specifically to protect innocent people from further embarrassment and persecution.
    Certainly Trump deserves to be treated fairly under the law.
    The witch-hunt is over. No matter how much you personally hate Donald Trump, you are going to have to move on.

    "So now after "three" separate investigations the US Government appears to have concluded that there was never an "collusion" or "coordination" with Russia by Trumps campaign during the 2016 election. "

    How do you possibly say that without the report being released. This is exactly why a whole swath of posters on this thread have no credibility at all.

    It may be true, but you have no idea at this time.

    PS, you can have a finding of collusion without an indictment.

    Mr Barr's letter to congressional leaders was very professional. Move forward on that high plain.

    How sad to see people prejudge the legal process in which we find ourselves as a nation. Democrats are being demagogue as liars, blame placed on previous administrations and investigations into Trump actions are called attacks.

    Apparently, any and all efforts to find the truth that might endanger the President are out of bounds. And obviously this same mentality dictates that someone else is responsible. That critics of the President are liars. That the media is completely untrustworthy (Rush and Hannity excepted). And that the President is as innocent as a new born babe.

    I leave it to others to judge the validity of those presumptions.

    It's funny, really. The Democrats are circling like a school of piranha circling a swimming goat, except that the goat doesn't exist and never did. If there had been collusion beyond the hallucinations the Democrats have been chasing, then Pres. Trump would have been indicted. This whole "investigation" was a sham to begin with. If a private person had made a police report of a non-existent crime, he would have been charged with filing false reports and sent to jail. But, since it was "government" that made the complaint nothing will be done to the people who started the "investigation." I think the Democrat Party should be billed for the cost of this investigation.

    Open it all up. In particular, I want to know what the FISA court was told about the Steele dossier (Clinton-funded opposition research). I suspect they were lied to about whether or not the information had been verified. The result was surveillance by the Obama administration on its political opposition.

    @Impartial7 "Prosecutions will come later."

    I believe so. But they might not be the prosecutions you were hoping for.

    @worf: Agreed. President Trump is the biggest victim of online bullying in history. Because he's not a wimp, he defends himself, which simply drives the left into further paroxysms of rage.

    Impartial

    Said posters constant claims of trump being indicted the last two years, and now that the probe has concluded said poster is claiming "prosecution will come later".

    I guess the resulting indictments of criminal wrong doing and process crimes that garnered 3 convictions, 5 guilty plea's, and 34 charges is exactly contrary to said posters statements.

    Trump is not being charged with anything, if there are no charges how can there be future indictments?

    Mueller who has prosecutorial jurisdiction over this investigation is not recommending charges or indictments against trump.

    Does said poster know more than Mueller, or William Barr?

    Also the SDNY who's investigations are still on going falls under the jurisdiction of the DOJ, yes they answer to the new AG William Barr, unless their investigations results in charges against Trump then there will be absolutely no indictmemts against trump and clearly there was no evidence of rump russia collusion.

    Its not hard to except the results of the probe when it was based on a fake dossier and a supposed russian spy in the trump campaign in Carter page who was never charged with any crimes.

    This whole probe was a sham.

    Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann plans to sue CNN for more than $250 million over alleged "vicious" and "direct attacks," his lawyer has stated.

    It seems Donald Trump could do the same thing with the "vicious" and "direct attacks" against him.

    CNN has done more reporting of opinions rather than factual news.

    This was a huge waste of time and a smoke screen to hide the illegal activities of the Obama administration and the Clinton campaign. Yes, prosecution is looming ...

    So now after "three" separate investigations the US Government appears to have concluded that there was never an "collusion" or "coordination" with Russia by Trumps campaign during the 2016 election.

    The Democrats response proves that their cries for "the truth" are nothing more than cheap political attacks. They couldnt accept Trumps election victory and now they cant accept the result of Muellers investigation.

    I hope that the American people who are fair minded will turn against these lieing Democrats and see them for who they really are.

    Someone shared a copy of the report with me at my Zumba class this morning and I thought this was the best line of all, "We have found absolutely no evidence of Trump criminality that ever took place on February 29th."

    The American people deserve to see the entire report, with exception to issues that may compromise national security, regarding Trump and any illegal actions and relations with foreign governments. Including his businesses and his family relationships with foreign governments. Trumpsters are already claiming "victory" because Trump hasn't been indicted. This was an investigation-not a prosecution. Prosecutions will come later.
