Mueller report: Trump attorney Jay Sekulow slams probes as "waste of money"

Donald Trump Jr the eldest son of US President Donald Trump speaks at a Global Business Summit in New Delhi India Friday Feb. 23 2018

In the report, Mueller concluded that there was no conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, but was unable to determine one way or the other if Donald Trump committed obstruction of justice.

Sen. Richard Blumenthal said Tuesday Attorney General Willliam P. Barr's summary of special counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian Federation and the Trump campaign was meant to "frame a message".

In a clip of the interview posted on social media by The Late Show's accounts before the episode aired Monday night, Warren said she didn't trust Barr's judgment on not charging Trump with obstruction of justice.

We all swore to protect our nation, and that begins with making sure that no one, including the President of the United States, is acting above the law.

Barr's letter "leaves the distinct sense that Mueller's detailed accounting of the president's potential acts of obstruction is significant", and "that may well be the point", Lawfare agrees.

Senator Murphy and Blumenthal add if they don't see the entire report within the next 24 to 48 hours, they hope lawmakers will use their subpoena authority to obtain the full report and any underlying evidence.

"No", Warren said, to laughter and applause.

In his letter to Congress about the Mueller report, Barr wrote that he reached his conclusions along with Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller and oversaw the probe until Barr's confirmation.

"Did you think you were going to run against someone who was indicted?" asked Colbert. The MSNBC host grilled Sekulow on Trump allies' dubious claim that Trump was fully exonerated by special counsel Robert Mueller.

But like her fellow Democrats, Warren still wants the report to be made public. "Zero. Because what people were asking about were the things that touch their lives every day".

While it remains very early, polling has suggested Warren has ground to make up in the race to become the 2020 Democratic nominee.
