Mueller report: Trump asked aides to help find Clinton's 'missing' emails

Tonko was also quick to point out that several of Trump's associates, like Paul Manafort and Michael Flynn, were charged and convicted in the investigation. This is bad. This is the end of my Presidency. Two days later, the report said, Donald Jr tweeted the link. He had called McGahn before to note Mueller's conflicts of interest. That rage fueled his first efforts to remove Sessions as his attorney general. That unmistakable conclusion of the report is the real threat to our nation. We also know that Russian Federation "interfered in the 2016 presidential election in sweeping and systemic fashion" to benefit Trump, with his campaign's knowledge, by manipulating voters, fomenting racial division, and targeting the African-American community to suppress voter turnout. "Based on the facts and the applicable legal standards, we are unable to reach that judgment", Mueller wrote. I'm f***ed.'"The evidence we obtained about the President's actions and intent presents hard issues that prevent us from conclusively determining that no criminal conduct occurred".

Trump did provide written testimony on "certain" Russia-related topics, but not on "obstruction topics", said the report.

Sessions himself also recalled the Trump saying to him "you were supposed to protect me" or something to that effect, according to the report. Volume II focused on the president's actions toward investigations carried out by the FBI and by the special counsel.

Russia thought it could benefit from a Trump presidency, and the Trump campaign thought it could benefit from the information stolen and released through Russian efforts. "Accordingly, while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him".

To call what went on in the 24 hours leading up to Attorney General William Barr's Thursday press conference a "feeding frenzy" would be an insult to vultures tearing apart fresh carrion by the roadside.

I believe that the unredacted parts of the report paint a grim picture - particularly in terms of obstruction - that must be fully vetted.

The report also states: "Within the Trump campaign, aides reacted with enthusiasm to reports of the hacks".

Barr then concluded that Mueller's team did not find enough proof to warrant bring charges against the president.

Ultimately the Trump haters will get everything they asked for, everything, that is, except his removal from office.

In the unlikely event you've forgotten the details: On a trip to Moscow for the Miss Universe pageant, Trump, then a private citizen, stayed in a hotel suite that President Barack Obama had previously slept in.

"They're having a good day, I'm having a good day, too".

► "Our investigation found multiple acts by [President Trump] that were capable of exerting undue influence over law enforcement investigations, including the Russia-interference and obstruction investigations", the report said. This should never happen to another president again, this hoax.

He said the report details efforts by Russian military officials associated with the GRU to hack into computers and steal documents and e-mails from individuals affiliated with the Democratic Party and the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton for the goal of eventually publicising those e-mails.

Leading Democrats in Congress had a very different take on the report.

Swalwell, who serves on both the House Judiciary Committee and the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, made the comments during a Thursday MSNBC appearance to discuss the release of Mueller's full report-sparing redactions for sensitive information.
