Robert Mueller’s report on alleged “Russian” collusion within the 2016 Trump campaign has dropped, and despite a cheeky tweet by the President, the fight to protect our nation has just begun.
Trump, who has long insisted that there was “no collusion, no obstruction”, tweeted out this Game of Thrones inspired image just this morning:

Obviously, the news on “collusion” is not only good for the President, but should also allow the rest of our nation to breathe a sigh of relief. After all, no matter what side of the imaginary political line you fall onto, having a President who is not the puppet of Vladimir Putin is inarguably a good thing.
Those who believe that this is the end-all, be-all of the Mueller report are delusional, however.
Not only will democrats continues to raise their partisan pitchforks in the direction of Pennsylvania Avenue, but Robert Mueller’s investigation revealed ten separate instances in which investigators believed there may have been intent to obstruct justice…something that will keep this “game” going for some weeks or months to come.
The Justice Department considered President Donald Trump’s frustrations about media and political speculation about the Russia investigation when deciding whether to charge him with obstructing the probe, Attorney General William Barr said Thursday.
Special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on his Russia investigation recounts 10 episodes involving Trump and questions of obstruction of justice, Barr said. After reviewing the information gathered by Mueller, the top Justice Department official and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein concluded there was insufficient evidence to charge the president with obstructing the probe into Russian efforts to influence the 2016 election.
The special counsel himself did not weigh in on obstruction, and noted that the report “does not exonerate” Trump, Barr previously said in a summary of the report. A redacted version of the approximately 400-page document is expected to be released after Barr’s remarks.
The “game” is certainly not over, despite the President’s well crafted tweet, and the concerns about “obstruction” seem to have just been born anew.
