Release the report. The non-redacted one. One might even say the long form one....

These were crimes committed by Crooked Hillary, the DNC, Dirty Cops and others! INVESTIGATE THE INVESTIGATORS!"

You are the president of the United States of America, I for one would truly appreciate it if you would start acting like one, and stop acting like a 4 year old child!

Coverups take time!

What we will see on Thursday is the Barr report, not the Mueller report.

including a crucial one on obstruction of justice that Trump again misrepresented —

'Misrepresented'? Doubtful Trump's even read the report, instead just relied on little Stephen Miller and Jared to tell him what was in it.

Trump also knows that many of his followers will not read the report. They're waiting to echo what he tells them. Expect to see increased use of 'exonerate', 'innocent', 'spy', 'witch hunt', 'no collusion', 'investigate the investigators', '18 angry Democrats', etc. etc. ad nauseam. Beer hall rally slogans. Context-free sloganeering, an age-old tactic of demagogues.

Many in Trump's base use slogans as substitute for reasoning.

"to tear up the fabric of our great democracy."

Another example of the Trump regime using slogans to influence those in their base unable to reason for themselves. Trump's doing what he can to undermine the principles the US is based on, and while doing so trying to get his followers to think it's those who oppose him - and use Constitutional rights to do so - who are anti-democracy.

"I watched Attorney General William Barr open his mouth and Donald Trump's words popped out of it."

Sen. Hirono

Let see the damn report with as little as possible being redacted. Otherwise, without hindsight, what the Russians (and Republicans) ave done will go unchecked and could easily happen again.

The real question is how long it's going to take until Congress is able to actually see the report, and not the black-markered mess that Barr is going to try to feed them, to cover up his and Trump's incompetence.

Democrats would know this.

What we will see on Thursday is the Barr report, not the Mueller report.

Oh, please, it’s the Mueller report. Don’t know how many reports we’ve seen from Democrats where we saw pages and pages of Black. It’s coming. You guys are anticipating this more than the latest first episode of Game of Thrones, relax. Lol

if you are a Trump hater, the report won’t change that or your hatred or opinion of the President, if you are a Trump supporter, nothing will change your suspicion or support for the President.

Lots of speculation flying around. Patience is key.

Of course, we'll have Trumpophiles here soon enough to tell us everything we need to know about the unreleased report.

@bassif you are a Trump hater, the report won’t change that or your hatred or opinion of the President, if you are a Trump supporter, nothing will change your suspicion or support for the President.

Once again in binaryland for those unable to leave their silos there are only 2 kinds of people. Neither able to reason for themselves. Some call that 'projection'.

Being that Barr was given the job as his personal lawy..,I mean A.G. to protect Trump,you know there are hidden goodies in the report.He ain't gonna just give you.But if you can go after a president over a stain on a dress,you damn well better find out why Russia owns Trump like they do.Redacted or not.

Billy Clinton was impeached for lying under oath. That is illegal. There was an actual crime.

No point releasing a redacted report.

Dems are desperate for any dirt on Trump. Pathetic.

@serranDems are desperate for any dirt on Trump. Pathetic.

Trump backers are desperate to ensure Trump, his family and those he's bought to do his dirty business are protected,

along with the many other corrupt elites who've long been doing damage to the US at home and abroad.

Pathetic.

No one is above the law.

@glty No point releasing a redacted report.

Don't worry. Unless Trump's able to have his deepstateswamp stormtroopers led by little Stephen Miller, Pompeo, Bolton etal seize control, some time along the way full truth will come out.

"There was no obstruction, which I don't how you can interpret that any other way than total exoneration," 

Well, Sarah, apparently there was evidence on both sides. And no, we aren't going to trust a proven scammer and known liar because that would be illogical in any situation with any similar person.

"Mueller, and the A.G. based on Mueller findings (and great intelligence), have already ruled No Collusion, No Obstruction," Trump tweeted. "

Why is this man still lying about the obstruction?

Release a redacted report. If only to stop Trump's lies.

A 2 yr fake investigation that turned up zip and the Left are still whining, it’s over, no new charges or indictments, now it’s time to go after Comey and his little band and maybe Obama to see if the FISA was obtained legally, Comey in interviews has admitted they didn’t disclose all the details to the FISA judge but let’s wait and see, now in the meantime President Trump should be left alone to run his Country as he was fairly elected to do.

If only to stop Trump's lies.

Trump won't stop lying; he probably can't. He's shown he's a pathological liar. And he knows his truest believers will not question his lies.

For example:

@bas4 f you are a Trump supporter, nothing will change your suspicion or support for the President.

It is funny that after an exhaustive 2 yr investigation nothing incriminating turned up but the Left can’t accept the decision because they don’t want to, it hurts them that they were so wrong, now they have resorted to making stuff up, Trump’s clear, he will also win in 20/20, get used to it.

How was the investigation "fake"? Have you read the report?

34 people indicted is hardly "zip" and Trump was not totally and completely exonerated, according to what Barr summarised.

President Trump should be left alone to run his Country as he was fairly elected to do.

Run it into the ground, more like. The problem with leaving dictators to their own devices is that the people tend to suffer - the marginalised and poor, the most.

It's funny how the right keep claiming this. All that spinning can't be good for their balance.

See my answer above.

How can you have a charge of obstruction when there wasn’t a crime committed? No collusion so how can Trump obstruct a non crime. Think about it.

No, but what does no new charges or indictments tell us, nothing in that report will incriminate Trump or his family or Mueller would have recommended charges, now look at the 34 people charged, no charge laid in relation to Russian collusion which the probe was supposed to be about, all process crimes, most were merely Russian social media posters who will never make it to court.

Im saying fake because the Steele Dossier was unverified and was used 4 times to obtain a FISA, Comey admitted in an interview that the FBI never told the judge that it was funded by Clinton, around 8 FBI agents working the probe were found to be Biased and removed, Peter Stroz was sacked, Mueller Knew in August 2017 that they hadn’t colluded with Russia but carried on the investigation, why?

-4 ( +1 / -5 )

Remember, Trump has stated he has no problem with the whole report being released, now does that sound like he’s trying to cover it up? Trump has co-operated thoughout the investigation, so where’s the problem?
