Accordingly, while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime,


Note the bolded word above. In America you are Innocent until proven guilty. The addendum (exoneration bit) added at the end by Mueller's team is made superfluous based on the preceding text.

Thus Trump is innocent and that conclusion was made in the report by that sentence above. Why is this so difficult to understand?

Mueller is forbidden from accusing the president of a crime, per DOJ policy. He presented evidence of crimes. He could not say that Trump didn't commit crimes when he acted illegally. He referred to Congress's constitutional duty to determine if the president's actions meet the threshold of "crimes and misdemeanors."

Trump is not innocent. Even Barr is not suggesting that Trump didn't do it. Barr is arguing that Trump was justified in committing acts of obstruction because of his righteous indignation. Trump committed the acts that are enumerated in the report. It's now up to Congress what to do about it.

Like Flood and the white house aren't already grasping for any straw that floats past them on that creek they are up.
This is so funny to read. Or sad. I'm not sure which.
But apparently you guys have read or not read a different report from me.
I know..... you read the summary by trumps lackey if that much

They were not talking about her private server. They were talking about the server at her office at the DNC and the servers of the DNC and the DCCC.

There is no if there. They have it. But they are blocked from action by DOJ policy.
So Mueller laid out the case for the legislative branch to do what is within their power to do about a corrupt president.

There was also plenty of evidence of collusion. They just couldn't make the "Criminal conspiracy" connection.
There were hundreds of contacts with russians. Hundreds. And they were all working on getting trump elected.

Hey, 5 posts and no coherent ideas are presented yet again by spam bot.....

Lol

When do you think Bobby Mueller is going to testify?

Will he be the one that finally brings Trump down again in spam bot world?

That's what you were claiming as fact for the last 3 years and you still wont let it go?

Even CNN yesterday was saying how Trump was probably going to be reelected because of the strong economy.....

Lol

The entire premise of the investigation was bogus to begin with:


BARR: In this situation of the president who has constitutional authority

to supervise proceedings, if in fact a proceeding was not well founded, if

it was a groundless proceeding, if it was based on false allegations, the

president does not have to sit there constitutionally and allow it to run

its course. The president could terminate that proceeding and it would not

be a corrupt intent because he was being falsely accused.

Why not... the kangaroo court is already is session isn't it?

"If the president does it, its not a crime" failed Richard Nixon in the very worst way.
"If the president thinks its fake, he can stop any investigation into himself"...thats ad libbed but it has the content. The kind of content that forced Nixon to resign.
Can you understand constitutional crisis? He is trying to become a king. This is going to blow up on him if he doesn't stop.
It is not gong to end with king donald... Its going to end very badly for him.

He didn't fail as a prosecutor.... He was always under the DOJ policy... from the get go.
He found the evidence... thats why you guys are so upset. You can see it plain as day that they have the evidence.
But the evidence needs to be used to impeach.... or just against him in 2020.
Its funny how you all kept throwing this tidbit up during the investigation. "He cant be indicted. You cant indict a sitting president... It will disrupt the running of the country".... Over and over...
Now when they say yup, you're right, we can't indict a sitting president you try to say it means they dont have evidence.
Talk about goalposts on wheels.
They have the evidence. Anyone who actually reads the report knows it.

But I have heard that ignorance is bliss so the right has that to snuggle with at night.

But it was not an unfounded investigation....
Only the trump sycophants are saying it was.

That doesn't make it true.

History will be looking at this through a very different lens than the emotional one you guys are viewing this through right now.

No matter what happens... The day that trump is out of there is coming. He is not permanent. Its not a lifetime position.

That would be the Attorney General of the United States who says that the the basis was a false accusation, not a Trump sycophant. Here is a partial transcript from CNN of the hearing:


BARR: I think they had a exhaust that canvassed the evidence exhaustively. They didn't reach a decision on. But the question you've (ph) just been asking raises a point I wanted to say when Senator Hirono was talking, which is how did we get to the point here where the evidence is now that the president was falsely accused of colluding with the Russians and accused of being treasonous and accused of being a Russian agent? And the evidence now is that was without a basis. And two years of his administration have been dominated by allegations that have now been proven false. And, you know, to listen to some of the rhetoric, you would think that the Mueller Report had found the opposite. [14:10:00]


There are now numerous investigations into the origin of these accusations and once those are brought to the light, you are the one who will be shown to be wrong, yet again.

Emotional lens? it’s over, lol. There is no emotion. Now it’s just wait and see if any of the bad actors on the Left are brought to justice.

Trump may not get re-elected. That’s just fine; as long as the Dems don’t interfere with the process again. However, DJT will be on the 2020 ticket. Which of the 20+ socialists the DNC chooses to put forward is the question.

The next 18 months will be fun.

Oh, real mature. That security blanket you're clinging to is getting more and more tattered as days go by.

I don't think anyone will ever actually face consequences for their blatant sedition, but at least I know it's being aired out for people with working brains to figure out for themselves.

ETA:

By the way, could you please cite any verified basis for such an investigation?

EVERYTHING that nutty leftists don't agree with are all lies. This is how nutty leftists keep total psychosis in check. The fear of the truth causes great anxiety and neurosis. Accepting the truth with humility is a big NO-NO for nutty leftists because that psychotic episode being kept at bay would come out and then: Rubber helmet material and medicines that cause drooling stupor would become legally mandatory initiated by those you support. Friends helping friends. Not the contemporary version, but the nutty leftists version.
