Mueller investigation wraps up, but lawmakers continue to debate report

April FrancisApr 01, 2019

And of course, a gleeful Trump celebrates (where else?) on Twitter, demanding investigations of everyone who criticized him, including the entire island of Puerto Rico - "I want my paper towels back, amigos!" - and quoting liberally from the Smash Mouth hit "All Star".

US Special Counsel Robert Mueller walks, after attending church, on March 24, 2019 in Washington, DC.

De Niro's Mueller lamented that there wasn't enough evidence to prove President Trump was guilty of collusion, but suggested POTUS wasn't off the hook just yet.

"We have not drawn a definitive conclusion", Mueller wrote.

He added that he thought a new investigation would now be opened "into those who committed this unlawful, unjust witch hunt, as the president calls it". Democrats in the House of Representatives, led by Rep. Adam Schiff, agitated to see the whole report before dropping their investigations of the president.

However, Attorney General William Barr informed Congress last weekend that Mueller's investigation concluded that a connection between the Trump campaign and Russian interference in the 2016 election never existed.

Smollett had gotten into hot water back on January 29, when he'd been rushed to Northwestern Hospital for treatment of wounds. One of the unnamed nurses who was sacked , claims to CBS Chicago that she never herself even accessed Smollett's chart.

In the segment, Mueller, played by actor Robert DeNiro, read a letter about his report while Attorney General William Barr, played by "SNL" cast member Aidy Bryant, and President Trump, played by actor Alec Baldwin, reacted to the findings.

Barr said Trump would have the right to assert executive privilege over parts of the report.

During his interview on "Media Buzz", Trump Jr. admitted that his father's tweets can sometimes be problematic for the White House agenda, but said that he, too, has sent out tweets that he now regrets. Barr released a four-page letter that he says summarizes the report's key findings.

According to Barr, Mueller also did not establish "that any US person or Trump campaign official or associate" conspired or "knowingly coordinated" with Russian efforts to use social media platforms to spread disinformation during the 2016 campaign or to hack Democrats' emails and disseminate them online.

"Is Trump work for Russian Federation or not?" an aide asked.
