Welcome to the new era in American politics that was ushered by former reality TV star now President Donald Trump.
Yesterday, the long-awaited release of special counsel Robert Mueller's report on the Russia investigation finally took place.
Attorney General William Barr unveiled his redacted version of the report to the American people where he claimed once more that after two years of investigation --- the experts found no collusion from the Trump campaign with Russia’s election meddling in 2016, and that Mueller decided not to indict the president on obstruction charges.
Mueller wrote in his report : "Although the investigation established that the Russian government perceived it would benefit form a Trump presidency and worked to secure that outcome, and that the Campaign expected it would benefit electorally from information stolen and released through Russian efforts, the investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.”
And Trump, who is obsessed with television, promptly responded using
Via Twitter, Trump posted an image that was inspired by the HBO hit series that read: “No collusion. No obstruction. For the haters and the radical left Democrats—Game Over.”
HBO is not pleased with the use of the image and expeditiously responded with a statement saying the network “would prefer our trademark not be misappropriated for political purposes.”
Trump's team did put out an official statement to continue with the victory lap and to slam Democrats.
Trump' campaign manager Brad Parscale said this in a statement: “President Trump has been fully and completely exonerated yet again. Now the tables have turned, and it’s time to investigate the liars who instigated this sham investigation into President Trump, motivated by political retribution and based on no evidence whatsoever.”
He added: “Now that the collusion and obstruction conspiracy theories have been exposed for the pathetic hoaxes they always were, the Obama-era DOJ and FBI must answer for their misdeeds and the scam that they perpetrated against the American people. Justice will be served.”
Did Trump work with Russia to get elected, yes or no?
