Trump and allies ready to turn tables on opponents and media after Mueller report

Donald Trump lashed out at the media on Tuesday morning in his first major attack since his attorney general released a four-page summary of the Mueller report he falsely claimed "totally exonerated" him. They have been irresponsible in terms of for two years, spending hour after hour after hour, building this narrative, building this case that the president colluded with the Russians.

"They truly are the Enemy of the People and the Real Opposition Party!"

Since it would seem that Mueller's findings will not lead to Trump's impeachment, his allies are now attacking the media and Democrats by accusing them of overselling the political devastation the special counsel's findings would cause the presidency.

They want a full copy of Mueller's report so they can tear it apart and say Barr came to a different conclusion because he covered up for Trump. The information is "urgently needed by our committees to perform their duties under the Constitution", they wrote, implying that the information would be subpoenaed if it is not turned over by the deadline. The Justice Department has not said whether it will release Mueller's full report, but Barr has said he will be as transparent as possible.

Barr said he and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller, concluded the investigation's evidence "is not sufficient to establish that the president committed an obstruction-of-justice offence".

He said now that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has rendered his verdict that there was no collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign, it's time to look at how the situation went "off the rails".

House Democrats insist their various investigations into the president's and his team's conduct will continue, possibly including calling Mueller to testify publicly before Congress.

"There may be other corrupt meetings between the Trump campaign and the Russians, there may be other profound financial conflicts of interest that are not mentioned in the Mueller report, and there may be unanswered questions even within what he did examine", Schiff said. "As a member of that Committee, I look forward to immediately receiving the full Mueller report and the underlying evidence and continuing to ensure that we uphold the Constitution".

Trump also said he had not thought about pardoning anyone convicted or who pleaded guilty in the Mueller probe. There are more than a dozen other investigations and lawsuits looking into the President, his businesses, finances, his family and his associates.

They include several of his former aides, including former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, former national security adviser Michael Flynn and former personal lawyer Michael Cohen.
