Reminder: 3 Trump campaign officials unknowingly worked with IRA trolls.
Reminder: Mueller did find evidence Stone successfully optimized release of stolen emails.
The way Barr just avoided implicating Stone there was really really really corrupt.

He just nodded to Stone's "collusion" but said it was legal but NBD.
Again, this is Barr usurping the role of Congress. It is constitutionally corrupt.
Shorter Bill Barr: The poor little President should not be held to scrutiny.

And, again, he JUST LAID OUT EVIDENCE that Stone "colluded."
This is so hysterical. Barr doesn't even do cover-up credibly.
Funny: Barr doesn't mention the ongoing investigations into Manafort, per prosecutors.
So the report was redacted by March 29.

The President has been delaying since then, then, not just Barr.
Again, Barr laid out evidence of "collusion" then said it wasn't "collusion" bc it wasn't illegal.
Again, HJC has a constitutional basis to get grand jury material. Especially given that Barr is usurping their constitutional role.
Basically Barr said Trump didn't obstruct justice because he was under political pressure.
Barr's not answering the real question: The Q is whether Mueller didn't come to conclusion because it's not constitutionally proper.
Barr: We did what DOJ says we can't do because we have to.
Rosenstein makes a weird side-eye look when Barr claims that Mueller was okay with Barr making the decision.
Barr claims this press conference is focusing on process.

Except he just did backflips to claim Mueller didn't find "collusion" when he did (Stone, with WikiLeaks).
Barr REALLY not happy about Reggie Walton's comment.

Barr not really answering the question about why Mueller isn't there today.
Barr: sense of impropriety to spin the report b4 public gets a chance to read it?

Presser ends.

Good news, boys and girls. If you grow up to be President you can't obstruct justice so long as you're frustrated.
Attorney General Barr honestly said that no Trump campaign official encouraged the hack.

That's ... utterly and totally false.
