After two long years, Robert Mueller and his team have concluded their investigation into Donald Trump and his campaign. Friday, Mueller officially closed the investigation when he turned his final report over to Attorney General William Barr, whom Trump appointed to replace the previous AG, Jeff Sessions, who was forced to resign after (rightfully) recusing himself from interfering with the investigation.
Monday, AG Barr released a four page letter, giving his opinion of the outcome. No one knows how long the Mueller report is, because, for once, there do not seem to have been any leaks in this investigation, since it was run by professionals like Mueller and his team, instead of the Amateur Hour currently running the administration.
Tuesday, Trump told reporters:
‘The Mueller report was great. It could not have been better.’
‘The Special Counsel’s report states that “while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.”’
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had this to say:
‘Attorney General Barr’s letter raises as many questions as it answers. The fact that Special Counsel Mueller’s report does not exonerate the president on a charge as serious as obstruction of justice demonstrates how urgent it is that the full report and underlying documentation be made public without any further delay.’
Schumer had previously attempted to have the house pass a resolution, simply stating that the full report should, at some point, be released. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell quashed it, citing the need for more time, despite the fact that there was no time limit specified and the resolution was non-binding.
All of this leaves the people of the United States with more questions than answers.
