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

Andrew Napolitano appears on Fox Business (screen grab)

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.

‘Trump is too stupid to realize he may get to his most feared number on COVID-19 deaths’: Keith Olbermann

Published

on

Host and progressive paragon Keith Olbermann has been issuing "worst person in the world" videos in which he makes a new case each week that President Donald Trump is the worst person and why.

He began by citing that COVID-19 is continuing to surge, with the astounding number of just over a 30 percent increase in the past two weeks. In Texas, hospitalizations are up 35 percent in as many weeks. Even the first lady can't get over her symptoms of the virus

"We could be just a month -- perhaps just days -- away from the exact same nightmarish, healthcare scenes and draconian closures and even lockdowns that snuck up on the proactively stupid, the psychotically self-absorbed, and the criminally negligent murders -- you know, on Donald Trump," he explained.

Trump mask-shames CBS reporter Lesley Stahl — and ominously warns ‘much more to come’

Published

on

President Donald Trump has spent months belittling people for wearing masks during the COVID-19 pandemic.

His anti-mask attitude reportedly resulted in White House and campaign staff not wearing masks so as to avoid angering their boss.

And Trump has repeatedly attacked Joe Biden for wearing facial coverings -- even after the president was hospitalized for COVID-19.

But on Tuesday, Trump dramatically shifted his position and mask-shamed CBS "60 Minutes" reporter Lesley Stahl, posting video of her not wearing a mask while Trump was.

Trump included video of their interview in his tweet:

Donald Trump Jr.: Biden already had a chance to ‘fix’ racism because Obama is Black

Published

Donald Trump Jr. on Tuesday argued that former Vice President Joe Biden should have solved racial tensions when there was an African-American president.

At a campaign event in Pennsylvania, the president's son responded after a member of the audience called Biden a "racist."

"Well, he is," Trump agreed. "He was best friends with every segregationist ever to walk the halls of Congress."

"But he's going to fix those issues now, right?" he added sarcastically. "Now he's going to fix racial tensions in America. Why did you wait 47 years, Joe? You know, if you really cared, if you thought it was something you were going to campaign on, maybe you would have utilized, I don't know, your 38 years in the United States Senate."
