On Monday, CNN’s Chris Cuomo said that the GOP has no reason to be celebrating after Attorney General Bill Barr released his findings of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.
Barr concluded that neither Trump or his campaign conspired with Russia. CNN’s Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo said that they knew that the Mueller report would not be the downfall of Trump.
“If you think at the end of the day this president is going to be led out of the White House in handcuffs and an Orange jumpsuit, then you’re sadly mistaken,” Lemon said. “If you want him out, you got to vote him out.”
“That’s exactly right,” Cuomo said. “Where you get anybody that you don’t like what they did is at the ballot box.”
“The idea of finding criminality to me has always been remote. Look, it could still be found. There are a lot of investigations going on. I just didn’t see the proof of it then, and I haven’t seen enough of the record to see it now,” Cuomo said.
He then said that he wasn’t going to apologize for his reporting on the Mueller report, and said the only reason people are celebrating is that no criminality was found.
“I meant what I said. There ain’t no damn apology coming,” he said. “I got nothing to apologize for. They’re taking a victory lap for not being felons. That’s how low the standard is for behavior right now,” he said.

How Teach for America evolved into an arm of the charter school movement
When the Walton Family Foundation announced in 2013 that it was donating $20 million to Teach For America to recruit and train nearly 4,000 teachers for low-income schools, its press release did not reveal the unusual terms for the grant.
Documents obtained by ProPublica show that the foundation, a staunch supporter of school choice and Teach For America’s largest private funder, was paying $4,000 for every teacher placed in a traditional public school — and $6,000 for every one placed in a charter school. The two-year grant was directed at nine cities where charter schools were sprouting up, including New Orleans; Memphis, Tennessee; and Los Angeles.

Here are 5 reasons why 2020’s down-ballot races could reshape America’s future
The political press always tends to focus mostly on the marquee race for the White House but that's especially true this cycle, as Donald Trump runs for a second term. He demands attention and his antics enrage his opponents and delight his supporters in equal measure.
But national reporters risk missing the big picture by centering so much of their reporting at the top when many of the most important political battles in 2020 will take place further down the ballot.
Trump is catnip for reporters and their editors, but the dearth of coverage of downballot races didn't begin with his election. As the news media in general faces structural changes—with print circulation declining and much of their work moving into digital spaces that are more difficult to monetize--publishers have cut back on reporters assigned to the state and local government beat. Nevertheless, Trump has arguably worsened the trend by getting so much airtime— one estimate suggested that over the past four years, Trump has taken up, on average, 15 percent of the entire daily news cycle on the three leading cable networks, nearly three times what Obama did.
