Surprisingly, accused Trump has become the counsel and the judge himself to exonerate himself from the charges that could easily lead to his impeachment and imprisonment.

President Donald Trump’s personal Attorney General William P. Barr is behaving like a puppet whose strings are in the hands of accused Trump who – in all probability – colluded with the enemy nation Russia to win 2016 presidential race.
Although Barr was supposed to release today the special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Trump-Russia ties that allegedly helped Trump win, he instead held a sudden press conference that was surprisingly announced by Trump.
The redacted report is expected to be released to Congress today at 11 a.m. ET before uploading it on the Department of Justice’s website.
As Trump and Barr are working as dictators and trying to hide the truth about Trump’s possible criminality on his secret collusion with Russia and his crime in obstruction of justice, Democrats are getting increasingly restless.
It is clear Congress and the American people must hear from Special Counsel Robert Mueller in person to better understand his findings. We are now requesting Mueller to appear before @HouseJudiciary as soon as possible. pic.twitter.com/Mmo6PA4KPt

Congressman Jerry Nadler did not waste time to take action and immediately wrote a letter to Mueller calling the special counsel for his testimony.
Earlier, Barr had mischievously submitted a weird summary of the Mueller 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 – a Trump toady –has arrogantly ignored their request and said he can share only the redacted version of the report. Barr is trying to hide something about Trump’s conspiracy with Russia to win the election by defeating Hillary Clinton.
Meanwhile, Trump released a poster today that said, “No Collusion. No Obstruction… Game Over.” Surprisingly, accused Trump has become the counsel and the judge himself to exonerate himself from the charges that could easily lead to his impeachment and imprisonment.

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.
