Over the weekend, Special Counsel Robert Mueller submitted his report. According to a summary by Attorney General William Barr, Mueller did not find definitive proof of collusion between Trump and Russia — yet he stopped short of exhorting him on the issue of obstruction.
That means Trump’s legal woes may be just beginning. Not only are prosecutors with the Southern District of New York pursuing a range of investigations into Trump business dealings and possible violations of campaign finance law, but Attorney General Bill Barr’s letter may not be the final word on the issue.
On Fox News Wednesday, Judge Andrew Napolitano explained the full range of legal problems Trump is up against.
“Welcome to my chambers,” Napolitano said. He then wondered why the Attorney General emphasized that the report did not exonerate Trump on obstruction of justice.
“Now that’s a head scratcher. Why would the Attorney General reveal any ambivalence on part of the government on whether President has complied with the law?” wondered Napolitano.
He noted that former FBI head James Comey had also erred by publicly inserting himself into the Clinton email scandal ahead of the election.
“The Attorney General has opened up a can of worms.”
“When he said in his four-page letter that the government could not establish the existence of a conspiracy – he meant it could not establish it beyond a reasonable doubt. Did they find some evidence of conspiracy? Of course they did! If they didn’t, he would have told us,” he observed.

‘He knows I’m actually better at the internet’: Andrew Yang says Trump is too scared to attack him
Presidential candidate Andrew Yang suggested President Donald Trump is too scared to attack him during a CNN appearance on Saturday.
Yang, whose campaign has been buoyed by his passionate online supporters known as the "Yang Gang," was interviewed by Van Jones.
"Part of the thing is that you’re such an unlikely candidate that people, they’re not shooting at you, even Donald Trump doesn’t have a bad name for you yet," Jones noted. "Is that a good thing or a bad thing?"
"Well, Donald Trump hasn’t messed with me online because he knows I’m actually better at the internet than he is," Yang replied, to cheers from the crowd.
