Since the release March 24 of Attorney General William Barr’s four-page summary of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s two-year-long investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible obstruction charges against President Donald J. Trump, Democrats demand the release of the full report while Republicans are calling for an investigation into Mueller’s investigation.

In his summary, Barr stipulated that although Russia certainly tampered with the US election, Mueller found no evidence of collusion with Russia by President Donald Trump or his administration. However, Barr stopped short of exonerating the President on obstruction of justice charges.

In the wake of the Barr summary, President Trump’s administration has continually praised the findings and berated Democrats for creating a “Fake News” story about the collusion charges.  Under pressure from the Democrats in Congress, Barr has promised to release the report in a couple of weeks but warned that “sensitive” information will be redacted.

Although it was inconclusive whether obstruction of justice took place or not – Mueller apparently listed evidence on both sides of the argument – Barr determined that no obstruction had taken place.

The New York Times stated that “On the same day that Mr. Trump publicly urged the Russians to hack into Hillary Clinton’s emails, they began to do just that. And we know that when questioned by federal authorities, many of Mr. Trump’s top associates lied, sometimes repeatedly, about their communications with Russians. None of this is in dispute.”  These words were written in an editorial following the release of the Barr summary.

The Boston Herald contradicted The Times, stating the Justice Department did not round up evidence that President Trump’s campaign “conspired or coordinated” with Russia in any way to gain an advantage in the election.

And the White House was even more emphatic about the findings.

“The findings of the Department of Justice are a total and complete exoneration of the president of the United States,” White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said. Furthermore, “There is no collusion and there never was…The very idea that Trump was working with the Russians was very possibly invented to open Trump up to investigation, and it worked.”
