What little we’ve seen of the Mueller report, all through the lens of the Attorney General’s 4 page summary, seems to make one thing fairly clear:
There wasn’t a legal standard by which President Donald Trump could be accused of collusion or conspiracy with the Russian government.
In one of the select few quotes from the Mueller report included in his summation letter to Congress, AG Bill Barr made that as clear as possible.
Yet, still, some believe that they somehow have a leg up on Mueller’s investigatory acumen, including democratic Congressman Adam Schiff.
Schiff told The Washington Post that the special counsel’s investigators did not look at whether President Trump was subject to the influence of foreign powers and said that his committee would continue to pursue an investigation into whether the president’s campaign worked with Russia or other countries in 2016.
“Undoubtedly, there is collusion,” Schiff told the Post. “We will continue to investigate the counterintelligence issues. That is, is the president or people around him compromised in any way by a hostile foreign power?”
“It doesn’t appear that was any part of Mueller’s report,” he continued.
Schiff has long been one of the most adamant supporters of the RussiaGate theory, using his ample exposure in the corporately controlled world of infotainment to lambast the President.
Attorney General Bill Barr believes that he will have a more thorough release of Mueller information for Congress in a matter of weeks.
