House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) are in complete denial after Attorney General William Barr revealed that Robert Mueller found no evidence of “collusion” between President Donald Trump and Russia.
Rather than accept the summary of Mueller’s findings, Pelosi and Schumer attempted to keep the conspiracy going in a joint statement on Sunday.
“Attorney General Barr’s letter raises as many questions as it answers. The fact that Special Counsel Mueller’s report does not exonerate the president on a charge as serious as obstruction of justice demonstrates how urgent it is that the full report and underlying documentation be made public without any further delay,” the Democrats said.
The statement added: “Given Mr. Barr’s public record of bias against the Special Counsel’s inquiry, he is not a neutral observer and is not in a position to make objective determinations about the report.
And most obviously, for the president to say he is completely exonerated directly contradicts the words of Mr. Mueller and is not to be taken with any degree of credibility.”
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders clearly disagreed.
“The Special Counsel did not find any collusion and did not find any obstruction. AG Barr and DAG Rosenstein further determined there was no obstruction. The findings of the Department of Justice are a total and complete exoneration of the President of the United States,” Sanders tweeted.
President Trump also took a victory lap on Twitter.
“No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION,” he tweeted. “KEEP AMERICA GREAT!”
Early on Sunday morning, he also tweeted a message that had some wondering if he knew that the report exonerating him was coming.
“Good Morning, Have A Great Day!” he tweeted.
Well done, Mr. President.
