President Donald Trump began his victory lap over special counsel Robert Mueller’s findings on Sunday with a tweet that read, simply: “No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!”
Later, the president spoke to reporters at an airport in south Florida. “It’s a shame that our country had to go through this,” Trump said. “This was an illegal takedown that failed. It’s a shame that your president has had to go through this,” Trump said.
Barr noted, however, that while Mueller’s nearly two-year investigation did not provide sufficient evidence that Trump had obstructed justice, the attorney general did say that Mueller did not exonerate the president on the matter.
Bolding is motherfucking mine.
President Donald Trump said the attorney general’s summary of Mueller’s investigation provides “complete exoneration” and “no collusion, no obstruction” https://t.co/xGD7PN4CCo pic.twitter.com/Z4drZcs7G8
