Sekulow Schools Williams After Host Couldn’t Grasp How Barr Determined “No Collusion”

The Daily Caller highlighted an epic exchange between Trump attorney Jay Sekulow and disgraced MSNBC anchor Brian Williams yesterday after the host expressed his surprise that Attorney General William Barr could “get off” with the conclusion that the Trump campaign did not collude with Russia.

“My first question, I’m afraid, is going to verge on plain English,” Williams said.  “Where did the Attorney General get off with that characterization this morning, including four mentions that there was no collusion? What document was he reading, compared to the one we’re left with?”

Sekulow responded, citing the second page of the Mueller report.

“Well, page two of the document says, ‘The investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign coordinated with the Russian government in its election of interference activities.’ So it’s right from the document itself.”

Williams moved on, “Have you read part one?” he asked.

“I have read part one and part two,” Sekulow responded.

“Do you find good news in here for the president and the administration?”

“The investigation—page 181—the investigation did not establish the Contacts described in volume one—that’s the Russian contacts—amounted to an agreement to commit any violation of federal criminal law, including foreign influence and campaign finance laws,” Sekulow replied. “Yes, I think it’s very good win.”

Breaking: Desperate Dems Subpoena Full, Unredacted Mueller Report

House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) issued a subpoena for the “complete and unredacted” Mueller report just one day after the Attorney General released the redacted version to the public, according to Fox News.

The subpoena reads, “This includes, but is not limited to, all summaries, exhibits, indices, tables of contents or other tables or figures, appendices, supplements, addenda or any other attachments whether written or attached in a separate electronic format.”

According to NBC News, Nadler said the Department of Justice must hand over the document by May 1.

“I am open to working with the Department to reach a reasonable accommodation for access to these materials, however I cannot accept any proposal which leaves most of Congress in the dark, as they grapple with their duties of legislation, oversight and constitutional accountability,” the congressman said this morning.

AOC, Omar Vow Impeachment Investigation After Mueller Report Vindication

Freshman Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) have vowed to investigate President Trump for impeachable offenses after yesterday’s release of the highly anticipated Mueller report which exonerated the Commander-in-Chief.

Taking to Twitter, Ocasio-Cortez announced she would sign on to Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s (D-MI) impeachment resolution which calls upon the Judiciary Committee to investigate whether the president committed offenses that could be considered impeachable.

Cortez wrote, “Mueller’s report is clear in pointing to Congress’ responsibility in investigating obstruction of justice by the President. It is our job as outlined in Article 1, Sec 2, Clause 5 of the US Constitution.”

The congresswoman continued, “While I understand the political reality of the Senate + election considerations, upon reading this DoJ report, which explicitly names Congress in determining obstruction, I cannot see a reason for us to abdicate from our constitutionally mandated responsibility to investigate.”

Omar responded to a tweet from Tlaib calling for the president’s impeachment, writing, “Impeachment is part of our constitutional responsibility. We have an obligation to investigate whether the President committed impeachable offenses, including: -Obstruction of justice -Violating the Emoluments Clause -Collusion -Abuse of power”

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said last month that she was not in favor of impeachment, calling it “divisive for the country.”

“I’m not for impeachment,”she told the Washington Post.

“Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country. And he’s just not worth it.”

 

Read it Here: DOJ Releases Mueller Report

The Department of Justice has released Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report.

Fox News points out that the report reiterates what Attorney General William Barr has stated previously: There is no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.

The report states: “While the investigation identified numerous links between individuals with ties to the Russian government and individuals associated with the Trump Campaign, the evidence was not sufficient to support criminal charges. Among other things, the evidence was not sufficient to charge any Campaign official as an unregistered agent of the Russian government or other Russian principal.”

The report also found that evidence from the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya and Wikileaks’ release of “hacked materials” were “not sufficient to charge a criminal campaign-finance violation.”

“Further, the evidence was not sufficient to charge that any member of the Trump campaign conspired with representatives of the Russian government to interfere in the 2016 presidential election,” the report states.

Breaking: DOJ to Allow Some Lawmakers to See Mueller Report “Without Certain Redactions”

The Department of Justice will allow some lawmakers to view the Mueller report “without certain redactions” after it is released tomorrow.

“The disclosure of a version of the report without ‘certain redactions’ came in a filing late Wednesday in the Roger Stone prosecution,” writes Fox News. “The DOJ said it would publicly redact sections related to Stone’s case which is ongoing. Stone, a longtime confidant of the president, is awaiting trial on charges including false statements and obstruction.”

The DOJ did not disclose which members of Congress would view the report without certain redactions.

The Justice Department announced today that Attorney General William Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will hold a press conference tomorrow at 9:30 a.m. ET to discuss the release of the report.

It is unclear if the report will be released before or after the press conference.

Comey Confusion Continues: Has “No Idea” What Barr Meant on Spying Claims

Disgraced former FBI Director James Comey seems perpetually confused with Attorney General William Barr these days.

First, he was confused by the attorney general’s summary report of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s findings.

Now, he just cannot wrap his head around why Barr would ever say that spying occurred on the Trump campaign.

“I have no idea what he’s talking about so it’s hard for me to comment,” Comey said at a Hewlett Foundation conference, according to the Hill.

“I think his career has earned him a presumption that he will be one of the rare Trump cabinet members who will stand up for truth,” the former FBI Director reportedly said.

Yesterday, Barr testified before a Senate appropriations committee where he said he believed “spying” on the Trump campaign did occur.

“I think spying did occur,” he said. The question is whether it was adequately predicated. … I think it’s my obligation. Congress is usually very concerned with intelligence agencies and law enforcement agencies staying in their proper lane.”
