Attorney General William Barr‘s version of the Mueller report is expected to be released Thursday morning, and despite President Donald Trump’s repeated claims, as recently as this morning, of “No Collusion – No Obstruction!” the White House is getting ready.
No Collusion – No Obstruction!

ABC News reports the White House has a “robust” and “aggressive” response planned for Thursday.
The White House reportedly does not know what the Mueller report, with or without Barr’s redactions, will look like, but it is reported to be planning a thorough pushback.
“Members of the communications staff are also likely to make the rounds on television to speak about the report’s release and defend the president.”
The Mueller investigation was also supposed to get to the bottom of Russia’s efforts to undermine the U.S. elections. President Trump has made clear he does not believe that happened.
WATCH: Republican fumes at House hearing after being accused of not reading the Mueller report
House Democrats continue to investigate wrongdoing by the Trump campaign and administration that was revealed in the Mueller probe -- despite failing to pursue official impeachment proceedings.
That has not made the president's supporters very happy, as they continue to falsely claim that the Mueller report completely exonerates President Trump.
Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) thanked his constituents for showing up before going on an angry rant at Republicans who are eager to downplay the findings of the Russia probe.
"They have to see what I have to put up with. Week after week after week," Cohen said.
Whoopi Goldberg scorches McConnell for obstructing Obama: ‘Maybe you should pay reparations for that!’
Whoopi Goldberg shamed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for claiming the sins of slavery had been repaid with the election of President Barack Obama.
McConnell disagreed with reparations for slavery, lynching, discrimination and other racist institutions, saying the Civil War and Obama's election should be enough -- and "The View" host called out his hypocrisy.
"You know, Mitch, you said that you would make him a one-term president," Goldberg said, "and you did everything you could to not help him in the first four years. Maybe you should pay reparation for that."
Goldberg argued that black work and wealth had been stolen for centuries, and she said racism was much bigger than anything President Donald Trump -- whose name she never says -- and the Republican Party had done.
