Attorney General William Barr clashed with desperate Democrats on Wednesday, confirming that the Mueller report found no evidence of collusion or proof of obstruction of justice by President Donald Trump.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, tried to suggest that there actually was collusion — and she failed miserably.
The Democrat pressed Barr on the Mueller report’s claim that Trump instructed his lawyer Don McGahn to fire special counsel Robert Mueller. However, the truth is Trump reportedly asked his attorney to look into Mueller’s potential conflicts of interest.
Further, Mueller was never actually fired, making it impossible for Trump to have obstructed anything.
However, it was Barr’s blunt response to Feinstein’s attempt to prove wrongdoing that everyone was talking about on Wednesday.
“You have a situation where the President tries to change a lawyer’s account in order to prevent further criticism of himself,” Feinstein said.
“Well, that’s not a crime,” Barr shot back, pointing out the obvious.
What followed was a glorious moment of silence. Feinstein didn’t even know how to respond.
Watch the moment below:
Further commenting on the New York Times article about Trump’s instructions for McGahn, Barr said the evidence suggests the president wanted incorrect information corrected.
"There is evidence the President truly felt the Times article was inaccurate and he wanted McGahn to correct it,” Barr said.
The Russian delusion is officially over.
