    "Can you explain how william barr 3 1/2 page condensed a 400+ page report 3 1/2 pages of nothing."

    Sure, it's called a summary. Barr did it as a courtesy because everyone wants answers. Barr quoted mueller's findings and in mueller's exact words, "the investigation did not establish that member's of the trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the russian government in it's election interference activities". Mueller's words not Barr's. Look it up its public info.

    "Usually an AG promises to be a servant of the american people, not a president's lap dog."

    Barr will release the redacted version of the mueller report tomorrow after all grand jury and sensitive material regarding national security is removed, because its the law contrary to what you hear on spinn tv.

    Barr also stated since there is no underlying crime there cannot be any obstruction, trump is innocent just like kavanaugh.

    Barr will also look into the predication of this investigation since there is no evidence of a crime to justify it in the first place. A fake dossier, conspiring with russia occurred by the left to falsely accuse trump, fox news had it right, spinn tv did not, hence the egg!

    "What will trump supporters say when various illegalities committed by the president, or his minions, is established by the mueller report?"

    Well, Mueller himself already told us in his own words as quoted in the Barr report. Mueller said:

    "The investigation did not establish that member's of the trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the russian government in it's election interference activities."

    The current spinn from propaganda news taploid worthy MSM is that Barr cannot be trusted with his 4 page summary, but he quoted mueller, and mueller himself has not come out said anything to the contrary.

    FOX news has been reporting on this fake manufactured allegations against the president for the past two years and in mueller's own words he confirmed that FOX news has been more accurate than spinn tv.

    When not one american was indicted specific to the allegations of russian collusion that says something, the fact that the indictments as a result of the investigation were for crimes not tied to trump or russia at all confirms this whole thing turned into a witch hunt.

    Said poster claims: the economy, the unemployment rate's have all been on a upward trend the past ten years and trump cannot claim the economy as all his.

    Does said poster realise that obama has the dubious distinction to be the only president to never reach a 3% GDP in all 8 years, does said poster realise that more american's were out of work or under employed at the end of obama's terms than when he first started? Infact obama had the worse labor participation rates since the 70's, he had 49% of american's on some kind of welfare assistance by the end, an all time record and he was proud of it.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but the real determination of the health of our economy is how many people are actually working and producing. Obama said all of those manufacturing jobs are not coming back, wrong, we lost 210k of them under obama, in 2 years trump gained over 400k.

    "I don't care what he says; I care what he does."

    So you accept the fact that Donald Trump is an incorrigible liar, has committed serious fraud and deadbeat, a racist xenophobe, wannabe dictator, misogynist and overall bad human being, and you will still support him, right?

    However, you say that you only care about what he does. Is that correct? Now you can't give him credit for a economy which has been trending upwards for the past ten years and a unemployment number that has been trending downward over the same period. Also, you cannot give him credit for the stock market since that also was moving upwards these last ten years.

    You can credit him for very conservative Supreme Court justices (2) and conservative justices appointed to circuit and appellate courts. You can also credit him for a tax cut and tax package that has benefitted the wealthy very much, but my taxes have gone up this year and I get less deductions because of limits made to help the rich get more. So that's highly questionable.

    What Trump has accomplished on foreign affairs has been a disaster with his insulting our allies while sending love to dictators.

    Let us turn this question around.

    What will Trump supporters say when various illegalities committed by the President, or his minions, is established in the Mueller report? Will, as the President is often quoted as saying, maintain his support after committing almost any act, including murder on 5th Ave in Manhattan in broad daylight?

    We already know some of the answer to that. Caught on tape talking about sexual aggression, and having to comply with a consent degree to shut down his family foundation because of misuse of funds, did not shake the support Trump gets from his diehards fans. Paying off porn stars and lying about it did not matter either. How awful does the man have to be to lose his admirers? Or does the content of his character matter so little, so long as he bullies minorities and Democrats, to the 40% of the country that is his base?

    @unrepentant progressive: "How awful does the man have to be to lose his admirers?"

    The change will be incremental and start on the margins, as individual Trump supporters reach their personal tipping point. The moral and intellectual cost of continued support will eventually outweigh the significant reluctance for admitting they made such a mistake in the first place.

    I believe that the vast majority of Trump supporters are good people. Good people make mistakes. And all people -- the good and the bad -- have a very hard time admitting they made a mistake.

    Choosing Trump as a candidate, electing him in the general election, and continuing to support him, has been a doozy of a mistake, made by many good people. Any number of GOP primary candidates would have made comparable SCOTUS appointments and more effectively carried out conservative policies. And they choose this guy.

    The psychological cost of that mistake is significant, and grows with Trump's continued aberrant behavior. In contrast, the cost of admitting such a mistake is fixed. As hard as that admission will be, eventually it will simply become less costly than continuing to support Trump.

    Not a smidgen of speculation there.

    No, it was James Comey's ridiculous claim that no prosecutor would be willing to prosecute her.

    I think many Democrats know this very well, and they're asking for the full report anyway. I leave it to the reader to ascertain the motive.

    President Trump said he is not worried about the release of special counsel Robert Mueller's report, saying it will show the now-closed Russia investigation was "a total phony." Yet the left says his remarks are an "attack"! The only people worried about the release of the Mueller report are Democrats who deeply fear that the AG summary report is spot on accurate! When will Democrats apologize to America and to President Trump? Honorable, honest people would apologize but the Democrats?

    There sure are a lot of people on here who know a lot about a report that has not been released.No matter what it says they will skew it to fit their narrative. They will feel that they are better qualified to interpret the results of the investigators because they either like Trump or hate him. For once could we just go by the rule of law and make judgement based on the law and evidence and not the Media and political pundits. If you have compelling evidence to add to what has been investigated why haven't you shared it already to the proper authority for scrutiny instead of instead of the authority of public opinion and speculation.

    "When the report comes out it will show just how much egg the left has on their faces."

    Apparently you haven't been reading the newspapers for the past two years. Why should the Left have egg on their faces? Maybe you.re expressing wishful thinking. Can you explain how William Barr 3 1/2 page condensed a 400+ page report into 3 1/2 pages of nothing? Why is the Trump administration in a dither following their victory parade? Maybe they're not sure that Barr will do everything he can including burning the report to protect Donald Trump.

    The thing with people suspicious of Barr is that they have ample reason to be cynical about his loyalties. Usually an AG promises to be a servant of the American people, not a president's lap dog. However, if you remember, Chris Christie said that the Mueller report probably isn't the greatest danger to Trump. That threat is coming from the other investigations that are targeting this man. When Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to lying, Trump was identified as Individual-1 as co-conspirator.

    You need to explain your position better in your comments instead of issuing some lame insult. Very Trump.

    “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

    However, for the life of me I simply cannot accept your opinion that Mr. trump is a righteous man.

    Mr. trump as witnessed by his documented behavior throughout the years is simply the very antithesis of righteousness.

    His antipathy to righteousness as witnessed by his documented behavior is legend.

    "What needs to be done now is investigate who lied to FISA judges to begin the spying and later the Mueller probe in the first place!"

    Is this the latest noise blowing out of Fox News? When William Barr was asked what evidence he had that there was "spying" on the Trump campaign, he said "NO". Then he said he believed it unlike the officer of the court he is. This is just another wingnut conspiracy to distract and protect Donald Trump from what is now anticipated as a negative Mueller report. With the dancing and celebration over, we have Trump starting up with the attacks and Fox joining in with all the talking heads working overtime to protect him.

    It appears that no one from Republican ranks understand what the FISA court is and the how it works. If one is to submit to this nonsense of lies and distortion, the whole nature of our justice system is corrupt, a notion that Trump and his henchmen would like to maintain when it concerns the activities of those around him. However, we have multiple indictments and convictions which provide credible evidence that our system works and the conspiracy fanatics are wrong.

    "We already know that the Mueller probe could find no evidence of Trump collusion or obstruction. "

    We already know? You must know something I don't know, and I consider myself well-informed? Maybe it's because Donald Trump told you there was "complete exoneration". William Barr wrote "no collusion", but he also wrote "no exoneration". Or did you miss that?

    As to "no collusion", it appears that the key phrase here is "insufficient evidence beyond a reasonable doubt." Not the doubt of a partisan hack. This is a determination before a case is brought to trial, when the prosecutor considers if his/her case is solid. Surely, we all recognize that people like yourself would never convict Trump of anything regardless of what he does and what the evidence is. It's like the white juries in the South when a black man was on trial. The verdict is already determined before the trial begins.

    When a majority of Americans don't believe Trump should be president, it gets really weird when you make such generalizations as "We already know". As I mentioned, Fox News viewers think they know. Everyone else who is informed wants to see the report.

    "It doesn't matter what the report shows. The democrats will cherry pick a few words here and there and try to ride the dead horse for another year."

    It's not the Democrats who will make the decision. It will be the American people being able to read the document themselves. Except for those who don't want the Mueller report released to protect Donald Trump, it now becomes a spin cycle to distract people from what they have read.

    William Barr cherry picked when he wrote his letter. Having the complete, unredacted report should allow the electorate to read whole phrases and complete sentences. You may not get it, but there's a lot coming in the next year. Hold onto your seat.

    "How can you obstruct justice when there never was a crime to begin with."

    When you watch Fox News, you don't learn about indictments and convictions coming out of the Mueller investigation. Remember, it all started with Mike Flynn and Donald Trump trying to get James Comey to drop the investigation into Flynn. If Comey had gone along with Trump's request, Flynn would not have pleaded guilty for lying and would not be facing a prison sentence.

    Any law enforcement officer can tell you that there are times when evidence available at a given moment in time may not be SUFFICIENT to prove guilt beyond what is required by law.

    But that does not mean there was no crime.

    It does not mean a person was exonerated.

    One prime example here in Utah is the ongoing mystery surrounding the disappearance of Susan Powell. There are certainly very few people here who doubt that her husband -- and probably others in his family -- were responsible for the crime. But there simply was NOT enough evidence available to make a case stick.

    Let's read the report. Even with redactions, we should still be able to determine if trump was or was NOT "exonerated."

  • Mackenzie Iwamoto Bronx, NY

    This release of the Mueller report is ending with a whisper, certainly not a bang. It is expected that William Barr will redact most of the report to protect Donald Trump from legal liability. However, Barr's efforts may not provide the safety net Republicans want. The entire report will probably all come out in the end. There is precedent, and the courts may not rule in Trump's favor. Nonetheless, this may not be the fatal bullet Democrats hope. There is much more going on with various U.S. attorneys and state attorney generals' offices.

    Trump is again attacking the Mueller report after claiming "complete exoneration" and dancing in the halls of the White House. Robert Mueller provided the AG with his findings and no determination on his part. Then the Barr's statement of "no exoneration" with regard to obstruction of justice became the source of new anxiety. Now people are demanding to see the complete report, unredacted and free of the AG's political bias. They want to know what is being hidden.

    Thursday will come and go and the House Judicial Committee will file its subpoena and we'll see how things go. It's clear Trump's earlier victory celebration was premature.

    It is my understanding that the Attorney General cannot release the full report as it would endanger people, and/or break the law. Privacy laws require certain redactions. I think Democrats are getting ahead of their skis here. They don't know that a redacted report will be inadequate.

    I think most Americans believe Democrats are simply trying to unearth something else to talk about for the next 2 years, dragging this out through the campaign. This is what Republicans did to Hillary with Benghazi--numerous investigations, dragging it out, creating an opinion before the campaign even began.

    Why would Democrats be upset if AG Barr were to try and protect the president anyway. Eric Holder (Obama's "wingman) and Loretta Lynch did a very fine job of protecting Obama. It appears Obama set the standard for future AG's--to protect the president and bury scandal.

    No "we" don't know that. Besides, Barr's carefully parsed words said nothing of the kind.

    Then this: "Trump haters need to let the Russia collusion hoax go".

    Our intelligence services, even those officials appointed by the President, tell us that the Russians did interfere in our election and may have caused electoral distortions based on their intensive use of propaganda on social media. And probably aided/abetted Wikileaks in busting into the Clinton servers as well. The only point of contention is the President's knowledge of what the Russians were up to, and how beholden he might be to Putin in financial matters.

    Trump lovers need to look reality in the face. Face the fact that the President is probably guilty of criminality. And that their support of him is inconsistent with their otherwise well considered opinions.

  • Daedalus, Stephen Arvada, CO
    April 15, 2019 5:27 p.m.

    By definition, 'successful' obstruction of justice will prevent an investigator from finding sufficient evidence to prosecute a suspected crime.

    According to Trump/GOP's legal position, without prosecution of the suspected crime, there can be no prosecution for the crime of obstruction of justice.

    In otherwords, done right, obstruction works: it prevents law-breakers from facing criminal consequences, even for efforts that successfully subvert the justice system in order to 'exonerate' a true law-breaker.

    According to this perverse legal theory, only those suspects who are unsuccessful in their efforts at obstructing justice might be in jeopardy of being prosecuted and convicted of a crime.

    While still consistent with the Barr summary, the Mueller report may explain how and why the Trump and team 'successfully' obstructed justice. Specifically, Mueller may have found that but-for Trump's obstruction, investigators would have found sufficient evidence to indict him for Russian conspiracy-based crimes. But per DoJ/Barr rules, Trump could not even be cleanly prosecuted for obstruction.

    Even by explaining how his hands are tied, Mueller's findings may end up condemning Trump.

    So you are saying the Democrats will do what the Attorney General did is his summary or whatever he is calling it now. Barr, has shown that his a partisan hack just like most of the rest of Washington on both sides of the aisle. His spying statement and his 4 page summary in 48 hours to get the news cycle flowing the Presidents way and now finally after 4 weeks he can put out his redacted version to people with a security clearance.

    I understand the concern that security clearances aren't that tough to get these days, I mean look at the White House and how many were handed out. But at least congress was elected by the people, so I understand their clearances. They have also taken an oath, and should see the un-redacted report.

    This is kind of a joke now. The report is not really released until congress gets the full report completely unredacted, and with full grand jury info, etc. If there's nothing to hide, and Trump and co are innocent, then there's nothing to worry about right?

    Getting harder and harder to believe Barr is a reliable player, as we were promised he would be. He released the bogus "summary" with his own conclusions, he does not believe congress has a right to the report (they do), he accused the FBI of spying, he declined to say whether Trump/co and seen report (obviously they have, and he's giving them plenty of time to get their story straight.) Sorry folks, Barr has moved into the suspect category. He can only be seen now in the light of Trump enabler/protector. Not legit AG.

    Expect a six page report this time. It will include photos of Trump and Barr taking a victory lap together wearing MAGA hats. Following, Trump will give Attorney General Barr his assignments for the 2020 election.

    Later in the evening, Barr will deliver a speech in the White House entitled, “The Independency of the Attorney General’s Office.”

    It doesn't matter what the report shows. The democrats will cherry pick a few words here and there and try to ride the dead horse for another year. How can you obstruct justice when there never was a crime to begin with. This whole nonsense was an investigation looking for a crime.
