President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani called Attorney General Bill Barr’s letter “complete exoneration” and told CNN’s Dana Bash that Robert Mueller’s findings were “better than I expected.”
Similarly, Jay Sekulow said that because Mueller didn’t find “conspiracy” then any efforts to obstruct justice are void because there was no crime.
“I mean, I’d like it all to happen because if it doesn’t, somebody’s going to say there’s something hidden there,” Giuliani said. “Let me say this for the 400th time, the president did not do anything wrong. He didn’t engage in collusion. I think now that’s proven beyond any doubt. And he did not engage in any kind of obstruction of justice known to man. Unless he can obstruct justice somewhere in the head, this is ridiculous.”
Giuliani also admitted that he has been involved in talking with former Watergate prosecutors this week, but did not explain why.
Both Giuliani and Sekulow would not commit to publishing the documents to the public. It’s unclear why they would refuse transparency if they believe the president was exonerated.
“Look, no crime was committed, so what’s he going to do obstruct an investigation of no crime?” Giuliani repeated.
The fact isn’t true. An excellent example would be that Martha Stewart was charged and convicted with obstruction of justice when there was no underlying crime charged.
Mueller’s report has not yet been released, but Barr wrote a summary letter with his own findings on the report.

Trump is losing to Biden again and again in a desperate attempt to avoid being forever labeled a loser: columnist
Writing in the Washington Post this Monday, columnist Eugene Robinson says that President Trump is suffering loss after loss to President-elect Joe Biden in his attempt to overturn the election's results. "Trump was declared the loser slightly after Election Day; he loses repeatedly and decisively in court; he loses in recounts and then demands re-recounts, which he will also lose," Robinson writes. "So much losing!"
According to Robinson, Trump's motivation may be the fact that Republicans in general did well in 2020, whereas he did not, getting "creamed" by 6 million votes.
In Trump's egocentric worldview in which absolutely everything is about oneself, the danger lies in the fact that he "sees himself as the boss and sees all those for whom he has done favors as his vassals," Robinson writes.
GOP lawmakers buried for meltdown over Biden appointee’s ‘mean tweets’ after years of Trump Twitter insults
On Tuesday morning, the panel on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" expressed both amusement and disgust with Republican lawmakers who are claiming one of President-elect Joe Biden's nominees may have a tough time being approved because she has a history of writing "mean tweets" about their actions and policies.
As host Joe Scarborough observed, those same lawmakers just spent four years either defending -- or pretending they were unaware -- of Donald Trump's habit of slurring and attacking his opponents or detractors on Twitter.
At issue are tweets that were written by Neera Tanden who is currently president of the Center for American Progress and has been nominated by the incoming president to head up the Office of Management and Budget.
Trump demands GOP Georgia governor ‘call off’ election in new Twitter outburst
On Tuesday, President Donald Trump tweeted a new demand for Gov. Brian Kemp (R-GA) to "do something" and overturn the results of the election. Specifically, Trump wants him to "check signatures and count signed envelopes" and then "call off [the] election" because "It won't be needed" — presumably meaning call off the Georgia Senate runoffs because the "real" vote count would show Republicans won outright.
Do something @BrianKempGA. You allowed your state to be scammed. We must check signatures and count signed envelopes against ballots. Then call off election. It won’t be needed. We will all WIN! https://t.co/UiJrlyBGiK
