maybe not, but he sure tried didn't he? Ordered some aides to obstruct but they wouldn't "carry out orders". A lot of conduct unbecoming of a President, wouldn't you agree?

mickstuder:   2. Barr’s comments Thursday sounded like something more at home at a Trump campaign rally than a Justice Department press conference.

 

 

That's both very true and sad for America. What's obvious in this report is that Trump and his entire administration is a collection of inept crooks and frauds who would lie on their own mother's grave if that's what benefits them.

I believe now that congress will subpoena everyone appropriate (including Mueller) and get the full story of exactly what happened and then act accordingly.

In the report, special counsel Robert Mueller outlined why obstruction by President Trump failed. It failed because others refused to "carry out orders."

"The President's efforts to influence the investigation were mostly unsuccessful, but that is largely because the persons who surrounded the President declined to carry out orders or accede to his requests," the report said.

"(James) Comey did not end the investigation of (Michael) Flynn, which ultimately resulted in Flynn's prosecution and conviction for lying to the FBI. (Don) McGahn did not tell the Acting Attorney General that the special counsel must be removed, but was instead prepared to resign over the President's order. (Corey) Lewandowski and Dearborn did not deliver the President 's message to (Jeff) Sessions that he should confine the Russia investigation to future election meddling only. And McGahn refused to recede from his recollections about events surrounding the President's direction to have the special counsel removed, despite the President's multiple demands that he do so. Consistent with that pattern, the evidence we obtained would not support potential obstruction charges against the President's aides and associates beyond those already filed," the report said.

Bottom line - no obstruction.

1. Barr did say, however, that he shared a copy with the White House so that the president could decide whether he wanted to exert executive privilege over any sections of it. (Trump declined to do so.) Jay Sekulow, the president’s personal lawyer, said he saw the report on Tuesday.

Your point?????

 

2. Barr’s comments Thursday sounded like something more at home at a Trump campaign rally than a Justice Department press conference. He went after the media and the president’s “political opponents,” railed against “illegal leaks” and went out of his way to praise how cooperative the White House was in Mueller’s investigation ― even though the president refused to sit down for an interview with the special counsel.

I didn't see it but since "we" seem to have - were there shouts of "Build the wall"?? If not - no campaign rally. As to the illegal leaks - do you approve of illegal leaks?

 

3. In other words, the president faced a really really tough job because everyone was so mean to him, so it’s understandable that his feelings were hurt and he lashed out a bit. The fact that he cooperated with the special counsel’s investigation at all shows what an admirable man he is. 

Well, I don't know about feelings hurt but I do know about the "Resistance" and the constant fishing expedition" so the job obviously was made tougher.

AG Bar  is the John Mitchell of this Administration. we will have to wait now for history to really assess what has happened in this country.

All of this will pass, and hoping that the damage that we have seen will be overturn by its own citizens.

Let's not waste any longer on any of this. read what many of the Trump followers have said and why the follow this man.

Read and learn in order to be able to work so  that we can win the next elections. it will become imperative that a different party wins, otherwise, this country will sink even further into mediocrity like we have seen with this administration.

Now, we have the guy from North Korea telling our president to fire Pompeo, and I wouldn't doubt that Trump if Pompeo doesn't follow what he wants him to do,  would actually think is a good idea.

Enough is enough, let's stop  the criticism and start with the actions. Action is what we need.

Mueller describes previously unknown effort by Trump to get Sessions to curtail investigation

From CNN's Kevin Liptak

 

Special counsel Robert Mueller described a previously unknown example of the President’s attempts to curtail the investigation involving Trump’s former campaign aide Cory Lewandowski.

Mueller says that on June 19, 2017, Trump met in the Oval Office with Lewandowski and dictated a message intended for then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who at that point had recused himself from matters involving the probe.

 

In the message, Sessions was told to publicly announce the investigation was “‘very unfair’ to the President, the President had done nothing wrong, and Sessions planned to meet with the special counsel and ‘let [him] move forward with investigation election meddling for future elections.’” Lewandowski told Trump he understood his instructions.

 

A month later, Trump checked back in with Lewandowski on the status of his message. Lewandowski said the message would be delivered soon.

 

Ultimately, Lewandowski declined to deliver the message personally, instead asking a senior White House official — Rick Dearborn — to do it instead. Mueller’s report says Dearborn was “uncomfortable with the task and did not follow through.”
