Barr – a Trump toady – is trying to hide something because he has something to hide. And that is Trump’s possible conspiracy with Russia to win the election by defeating Hillary Clinton.

The way President Donald Trump’s Attorney General William P. Barr is behaving while trying to hide the special counsel Robert Mueller report on Trump-Russia ties that allegedly helped Trump win, it appears that Mueller has not exonerated Trump even from the charges of collusion with Russia.

Barr had mischievously submitted a weird summary of the report to the U.S. Congress with his own conclusion that there was no collusion and no obstruction of justice. While in this summary Barr did not use even a single full sentence from the Mueller report, Trump’s collusion with Russia can’t be ruled out.

Although Democratic leaders have refuted Barr’s conclusions and have demanded the release of the full report submitted by Mueller, they have willy-nilly accepted that Trump did not collude with Russia to win the 2016 presidential election fraudulently.

Last month, six House chairpersons had urged Barr to release the Mueller report by April 2. The Democratic chairmen of the House Judiciary, Oversight, Intelligence, Financial Services, Ways and Means, and Foreign Affairs committees had written a letter to Barr for releasing the full Mueller report along with evidentiary material.

However, Barr has arrogantly ignored their request and said he can share only the redacted version of the report. In fact, both Barr and Trump are behaving like dictators and simply mocking the Democratic leaders’ demand to make the report public.

“Why should Radical Left Democrats in Congress have a right to retry and examine the $35,000,000 (two years in the making) ‘No Collusion’ Mueller Report, when the crime committed was by Crooked Hillary, the DNC and Dirty Cops? Attorney General Barr will make the decision!,” Trump concluded in his tweet today.

While Trump claims baselessly that special counsel Mueller in his report has completely exonerated him, Democrats disagree. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said categorically that Mueller’s report does not exonerate Trump on the charge of obstruction of justice.

Similarly, without studying the full report, Democrats should not accept Trump’s or Barr’s conclusion that there was no collusion with Russia. In all probability, Trump had colluded with Russia to win election by deceit.

After almost 2 years of investigation, Mueller – who was leading a judicial team to assess the extent of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election – had released the report of his findings on March 22.

As Trump was accused of taking Russia’s help to win the presidential race fraudulently, he has been blaming rival Democrats and Mueller for starting the probe against him, often calling it a “witch hunt.”

As Trump had been insisting that he did not collude with Russia to win the election, he claims that the Mueller’s report has endorsed his claims, although Trump has not yet read the report officially.

While Democratic leaders have refuted Barr’s conclusions, they are struggling to get the full report submitted by Mueller.
