BREAKING: Special Counsel Robert Mueller ends investigation

Special counsel Robert Mueller on Friday wrapped up his nearly two-year investigation into Donald Trump and Russia and sent his report to Attorney General William Barr.

No details of Mueller’s findings have been released, but Barr said he may be able to brief congressional leaders on the report as soon as this weekend.

“I am reviewing this report and anticipate that I may be in a position to advise you of the Special Counsel’s principal conclusions as soon as this weekend,” Barr wrote in a letter on Friday to a group of lawmakers on the House and Senate judiciary committees.

Barr also concluded in his letter that Mueller’s investigation — relentlessly attacked as improper and a “witch hunt” by Trump — was conducted properly. Barr noted that he was required to inform congressional leader if Mueller had done anything “inappropriate or unwarranted.”

“There were no such instances during the Special Counsel’s investigation,” the attorney general said, adding that he would determine how much of the report could eventually be released to Congress and the public.

  18. #MuellerReport @JonFlan said on @TheBeatWithAri “Barr’s contract with Trump was to kill the investigation”

    We have no Department of Justice. The rule of law is gone. It’s been destroyed.

  20. Ari Melber, there isn’t a rule of law anymore, except for Black people. That’s been destroyed. What we’ve seen is rich white men can commit crimes & get away with it. A 2 bit thug has single handedly destroyed our democracy and white men in high places allowed it. #MuellerReport

      Let not your heart be troubled, dear Southern. Neither let it be afraid. He is in for this country’s money in order to get his financial needs met. He does not love this country. He WILL be cut down. He is extremely selfish, greedy, scheming, uncaring and foolish. He has no self control. This shall backfire whether he gets ‘help’ or not. This shall not work out for him. Trust God.. I love you.

      And either way, abruptly end his own highly coveted power grift gig as AG… that he desperately craved..

      Not gonna happen..

      Ever..

      At some point, folks have to come to grips with the fact that these republicans are no patriots… that self-enrichment, greed, power and preserving white supremacy …more than all else, is their entire thing.. America be damned..

    Barr ended the investigation –

    Precisely what was required of him in exchange for landing that highly coveted and heady gig of AG that he desperately sought …even under a buffoonish, 2-bit conman and hostile foreign entity installed Russian asset ..

    The idea that anyone believes that any of these greedy, power-hungry, unscrupulous, morally bankrupt, racist, white supremacist republicans are ‘patriots’, has to be the most amusing thing of all..

    Barr, like the rest of the louts, craves power and a gig that gives him proximity to power..

    They all have an interest in keeping the gravy boat going on..

    How on earth does anyone think that Barr – or any of these folks who’ve gleefully hitched their fortunes to a highly compromised, bought and paid for Russian asset, would do anything to torpedo their meal ticket..

    No matter the praise from the very same media folks who previously talked-up, lavished praise on, swore by, tried to sell us, and told us to bow down to the likes of Rick Perry, Chris Christie, Haley Barbour etc, in what other scenario would Barr or any of these other subpar folks of questionable character, intelligence and ability, be anywhere remotely at the bottom of, little less in the top tier and at the pinnacle of the government of the supposedly greatest country in the world.. running things, and enjoying unbelievable perks and privileges courtesy of the American taxpayer..

    They fully intend to ride this gravy train as hard as, and for as long as possible … even if it means rallying around and protecting a buffoonish, illegally installed basic conman and Russian asset with the nuclear codes at his fingertips, who’s busy doling out State secrets to despots of the highest bidder, in exchange for personally enriching himself.. America be damned..

    And they intend to, and are all looking to keep their sweet taxpayer-funded gigs for the next 5+ years at least..

    And they’ve done a masterful job of saturating the media/airwaves with not so subliminal messages and ubiquitous narratives/declarations of how ‘bad it would be for the country’ if the Russian asset squatting in the People’s house were impeached.. And how a sitting asset cannot be indicted..

    And white ‘supremacy’ once again came out in full force, showed up and out, and came out and rallied for one of their dumbest, crookedest and basest own..

    Had folks like the faux-constitutional lawyer, and selectively ‘by the book’, take the black man down for daring to sneeze and forgetting to dot an i, Jonathan Turley, effusive in his support for, and defense of a common crook and hostile foreign entity installed treasonous buffoon..

    And who can forget the greasiest of slimies – Harvard professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz.. Or the whiplash-inducing, endless bait and switching and gaslighting shenanigans of the Joe Scarboroughs, Smercornishes …the Anderson Coopers, Willie Geists, Mikas, Gloria Borgers, Stephanie Ruhles, Dana Bashes, Kate Bouldans, Brianna Keilars, Haillie Jacksons, Alex Witts etc. …who continue to twistedly normalize, legitimize, give cover to as they play footsie with glaring evil, even as they dedicatedly help poo-poo, douse, step all over any credible smoking gun and broken laws and norms … as they again and again, diligently help position and reverentially re-position an undeserving traitor and his imported moll/mole, while positively framing and reframing and whitewashing and glossing over his and her every ridiculousness …often, even as somehow ‘genius’ on the part of said glaringly idiotic, unscrupulous and brazenly treasonous buffoon..

    Really something, that incredibly suffocating pull and stench of white supremacy and white privilege..

    It has even now successfully designated the People’s House as a ‘safe space’ for a 2-bit conman criminal Russian asset and his imported, lazy Birther moll turned 3rd bride of dubious and questionable background …and all manner of fake bits and fake bio …

    And for as long as they desire …and with unfettered access to all the perks, privileges and endless resources .. – including those they’ve illegally usurped and grabbed for themselves, and all at the expense of the American taxpayer.. state secrets included..

    And all while the same folks who protect an adulterous grifter and criminal Russian asset credibly accused in over 18 sexual assault cases, turn up their noses and continue to tsk-tsk at Bill Cosby who now rots in jail …and his educator/philanthropist wife of 55 years, Camille, who is now shunned, and treated as criminal herself …and a pariah …by the very same folks who continue to kid-glove, excuse, absolve and play save a damsel for a hollow, lazy, illiterate, gold-digging, self-absorbed,narcissistic, pathological liar euro trash 2-bit moll …hilariously elevated, as folks with a straight face, hail the glaring fraud and grifter playing at ‘respectable’ ‘lady’, in this super-warped Orwellian version of white supremacy at work – the Russian edition..
