Trump Claims “Total Exoneration” After Inconclusive Mueller Report
Once again, Donald Trump is making a fool of himself online…
Normally, we use our Sundays to clean, rest, or drink bottomless mimomas (depends on the day), but this past Sunday was anything but relaxing and refreshing. Robert Mueller’s investigation into whether or not the president criminally conspired with Russia to influence the 2016 election was inconclusive—and no. 45 couldn’t be happier about it.
In case you missed it, the attorney general summarized Mueller’s report and in that memo, it’s clear that Trump has NOT been completely absolved of obstruction of justice. Though Mueller found no evidence that anyone associated with the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to manipulate the election, Trump wasn’t declared innocent:
“The Special Counsel states that ‘while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it does not exonerate him.”
With that said, you can understand how inaccurate it was for Trump to then claim “Complete and Total EXONERATION.”
According to the NY Times, Trump also commented:
“So after a long look…after a long investigation, after so many people have been so badly hurt, after not looking at the other side, where a lot of bad things happened, a lot of horrible things happened, a lot of very bad things happened for our country, it was just announced there was no collusion with Russia — the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard.”
“This was an illegal takedown that failed. And hopefully somebody’s going to be looking at the other side,” he added, according to the site.
We’re still waiting to read Mueller’s full report for ourselves, but for now see the bumb azz SUMMARY of the report here.
