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.
WATCH: Trump advisor trashes Dr. Fauci — while pushing coronavirus conspiracy theories
White House economic advisor Peter Navarro pushed several conspiracy theories about the COVID-19 pandemic as the administration attempts to deflect blame for America responding to coronavirus worse than any other developed country.
At one point in the interview, MSNBC's Ali Velshi had to ask, "What are you talking about?"
Navarro harshly criticized Dr. Tony Fauci, who is one of his colleagues in the administration.
And he tried to blame the "Chinese Communist Party" for the disease, saying "they spawned the virus, they hid virus, they sent hundreds of thousands of Chinese nationalists over here to seed and spread the virus before we knew."
‘Gaslighting on a massive scale’: Doctor warns Trump is lying us into a COVID disaster
On CNN Friday, Dr. Celine Grounder tore into President Donald Trump's ongoing falsehoods about the coronavirus pandemic.
"No matter how many times public health officials, especially like Anthony Fauci, speak the truth, what does it do, Doctor, when the president continues to lie to the public in face of a public health crisis?" asked anchor Kate Bolduan.
"This is gaslighting on an enormous scale, and means until people eventually get sick or their family members get sick, the communities hit hard, they won't believe it, and then it will be too late," said Grounder. "The problem is there's a lag period from the time that somebody's infected and starts to develop symptoms a couple days later. We don't see people get severely sick and need to be hospitalized and in ICUs until a week into disease, and talking about probably one to two weeks of lag time from the time somebody's exposed at least before you start to see hospitalizations and then another couple weeks before you start to see deaths."
Katie Porter demands resignation of Trump small business chief for enabling ‘abuse’ of Covid-19 relief funds
California Congresswoman Katie Porter is demanding the resignation of the Trump administration's small business chief for enabling "abuse" and "waste" of coronavirus relief funds and refusing to comply with basic government oversight efforts.
Porter's call came after the Government Accountability Office (GAO) said in a report last week that it "encountered the most difficulty trying to obtain information from the Small Business Administration (SBA)" during the process of examining the Trump administration's handling of the $650 billion Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).
