If you read between the lines of the #MuellerReport, it looks like Mueller believes Trump either came damn close to committing obstruction or may have done so outright. https://bit.ly/2VV6QZp

While Robert Mueller may not have had sufficient evidence to charge anyone with conspiracy, the experts agree that plenty of evidence exists. "If this is what a complete and total exoneration looks like, I’d hate to see a damning report," one added. https://bit.ly/2IwIp1o
Here’s the most important effect of Modern Monetary Theory as an idea: it could convince some Democrats to break away from the view that government spending always has to be “paid for” with tax increases. https://bit.ly/2Gsyqrx

“The President’s efforts to influence the investigation were mostly unsuccessful,” the #MuellerReport states, “but that is largely because the persons who surrounded the President declined to carry out orders or accede to his requests.” https://bit.ly/2Gu8qML

Robert Mueller didn’t make a recommendation to charge Trump with obstruction of justice. But he was also very explicit that he didn’t exonerate Trump, either. https://bit.ly/2DlIroJ
The poet Emily Dickinson is, in the popular imagination, a recluse, a shut-in and a lonely spinster. Or was she? “She was very much a rebel,” says the director of Wild Nights With Emily. https://bit.ly/2GuWOZS
This is not a “no collusion, no obstruction” finding. It’s more like “debatably collusion, almost-if-not-outright obstruction” — and that’s a very bad look for the holder of the highest office in the land. https://bit.ly/2GvwE9j

Robert Mueller investigated 10 specific episodes for obstruction. Among them, Trump’s team asking Michael Flynn for a “heads up” on information and commending Paul Manafort for not “flipping.” https://bit.ly/2VRvs5r
The #MuellerReport reveals this incredible moment that occurred after Trump learned that Robert Mueller had been appointed as special counsel: https://bit.ly/2XjMdpW
AG Barr has repeatedly said that Mueller found “no collusion.” But the #MuellerReport makes it clear the special counsel did not evaluate whether there was collusion, because “collusion” is not a federal crime or a commonly used legal term. https://bit.ly/2GupT7F

DNA ancestry tests don't actually tell us where our ancestors lived – they're really just giving us probabilities of where we're likely to have relatives today.
The #MuellerReport isn't an exoneration of the president; it’s suggesting he had criminal intent but was too incompetent to act on it. https://bit.ly/2IrHi2Z

The #MuellerReport is littered with evidence Trump and his staff were open to Russian interference in the election. Mueller explicitly states “the Campaign expected it would benefit electorally from information stolen and released through Russian effort.” https://bit.ly/2DlKB7M

AG Barr’s summaries of the #MuellerReport’s findings, it turns out, didn’t just tighten up the findings. They misrepresented key points. https://bit.ly/2IuMPWK

RT @voxdotcom: 1/ A revealing passage in the redacted #MuellerReport states pretty unequivocally that Trump certainly tried to influence th…
9/9 House Dems will also subpoena a full, unredacted version of the report and "underlying materials" — which means we could learn more about how Mueller reached his conclusions. https://bit.ly/2IsRdVY
8/ So what happens now? That’s really up to Congress. Top House Democrats called on Mueller to testify. When asked about potential impeachment proceedings, Rep. Jerry Nadler called it "a possibility," though wouldn't go much further. https://bit.ly/2GwFKm7
7/ One passage of the report highlights that Trump certainly tried to influence the investigation — multiple times, in fact. But his efforts failed because people around him refused to follow his orders. https://bit.ly/2VP5cZq
3/ Once the report was released, we saw it tells a different story than Barr’s news conference. It covers 2 main areas: whether there was collusion with Russia in 2016, and whether Trump obstructed efforts to investigate Russian interference and potential collusion.
6/ On obstruction: Mueller’s team investigated 10 episodes of potential obstruction of justice. They ultimately didn’t bring obstruction charges against President Trump, but the report explicitly doesn’t exonerate him, either: https://bit.ly/2VZn7Nb
4/ On collusion: Mueller found the Trump campaign’s actions didn’t meet the criminal standard for conspiracy or coordination ("collusion" isn't a technical legal term). But the campaign did believe it would benefit from Russia's interference:
5/ So Trump’s claims of "no collusion" aren’t quite that simple. The report shows “a series of bungled and abortive attempts to create ties between the two sides … without ever developing a formal arrangement.” —Vox's Zack Beauchamp https://bit.ly/2IJh8Ij
1/ The #MuellerReport is finally here. If you were at work all day and not glued to the news like us, this thread is here to help. Because this story is not over.
2/ In a morning press conference — before the report was released — AG Bill Barr claimed the report confirmed there was no collusion and no obstruction. His statements were incomplete at best (more on that: https://bit.ly/2VRKB6A) and outraged @SpeakerPelosi and @SenSchumer.
