President Donald Trump may have just had the most triumphant moment of his presidency after special counsel Robert Muller announced that he did not find any evidence that Trump nor his campaign conspired with Russia in the 2016 presidential election.
U.S Representative Jerry Nadler, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee released a tweet saying;
“The Special Counsel states that while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.”
However, the President must have interpreted his words differently because he released a tweet saying the following;
“No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!”
On Sunday, before boarding Air Force one, Trump addressed the media and said the whole investigation was “an illegal takedown that failed.”
“It was just announced there was no collusion with Russia, the most ridiculous thing I ever heard. There was no collusion with Russia. There was no obstruction, none whatsoever,” said Trump as he addressed the media.
A four-page summary of the report was released by Attorney General Barr.
It lays out all the recourses that were used during the course of the investigation. In the report it details that 2,800 subpoenas were issued, there were nearly 500 search warrants and approximately 500 witnesses were interviewed.
The report goes on to detail that the special counsel and his staff thoroughly investigated allegations that members of the presidential campaign, and others associated with it, conspired with the Russian government and no obstruction of justice was found.
Now that the cloud of allegations has been lifted after nearly two years, the President’s top aides are said to be seeking “payback.”
On Monday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and senior counselor Kellyanne Conway made their rounds on almost every morning news show, to talk about the victory and how apologies are in order for the President since no wrongdoing was found.
“I think Democrats and the liberal media owe the president and they owe the American people an apology,” she continued. “They wasted two years and created a massive disruption and distraction from things that people — that impact everyone’s day-to-day life,” said Sanders.
