Fox News legal analyst: Barr’s summary indicates that Mueller did find evidence of a conspiracy

Published

on

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.

On Monday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin told anchor Wolf Blitzer how foreign adversaries have been emboldened to challenge Trump — because for all his bombast, they know they are calling a bluff.

"I think Donald Trump is pretty well a known quantity at this point," said Toobin. "I mean, I think people around the world know he's a blowhard, knows he's full of bluster. But that's no reason to get into a war."

‘Who are these people?’: Nicolle Wallace baffled by the ‘zombies’ who carry out Trump’s policies

Published

on

MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace was mystified on Monday by how Donald Trump administration officials can morally justify their "horrific" conduct.

"There is a stench," Wallace noted. "Those are the powerful words written to describe the humanitarian crisis at the border now resulting in the suffering of children and infants as the president and his administration concoct a toxic brew of political opportunism and operational incompetence."

"Blockbuster reporting from multiple news organizations drawing our attention to the tragedy unfurling on U.S. soil at the direction of the Trump Administration," she noted.

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
