Reactions to Mueller Report: Trump declares victory, Dems promise more investigations (Updates)

Trump: “This was an illegal takedown that failed”

Attorney General William Barr delivered his summary letter of the Mueller report to Congress, and the response has been swift all across the internet.


[original post continues here]

President Trump has tweeted after a brief down period while everyone awaited word from Barr, and Democrats are promising further investigations and demanding release of the full Mueller report.

President Trump spoke with reporters in Florida and called the whole investigation an “illegal take down that failed.”

CBS News reports:

President Trump on Sunday reacted to the attorney general’s summary of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, calling it a “complete and total exoneration.”

“It was just announced there was no collusion with Russia, the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard,” Mr. Trump told reporters in Florida before boarding Air Force One. “This was an illegal takedown that failed and, hopefully, somebody’s going to be looking at the other side.”

. . . . “No collusion, no obstruction. Thank you,” Mr. Trump said.

MSNBC has more:

Press Secretary Sarah Sanders also tweeted about the report summary.

Democrats are taking to Twitter to promise further investigations and to insist that the complete Mueller report be released.

Those on the right are equally vocal about the summary on Twitter.

Some are calling for full release of the report, as well:

Most of those calling for a full release of the report, however, appear to believe that it will reveal something that will bring down the president. The dueling trending hashtags—#NoCollusion and #ReleaseTheFullReport—reflect much of the reaction across the Twitterverse.

Bret Baier makes some great points about the summary, concluding that it’s a “complete win” for the president. Watch:

A late, late, late-term [political] abortion is a well-established Democrat rite under the Twilight Amendment to The Constitution.

I am old enough to remember when Democrats claimed that the Reagan campaign cut a deal with the Iranian government to delay the release of the hostages, costing Carter the election. Several years of taxpayer-funded investigations failed to turn up one scrap of evidence, yet in some sections of Progressiveland there are still true believers in this wackadoodle conspiracy theory.

The reactions to the No Collusion report are eerily similar. I fear Russian Collusion will live on for decades in the fever swamp that is the Left.

So let me get this straight. The summary doesn’t say what we want it to say, so we need the full report so we can pull out information disproving the summary. But since we haven’t seen the full report, we’re just making things up.

Sounds like a winning campaign to me!

“Giuliani ‘would like” public release of full Mueller report.”

Why? Does he want persons so named in the report to also be Manforted by the House-gone-loco?!

Anyone else having trouble with this site today?

    Yes. It is jumpy and does that horrible refresh thing in the middle of a comment.

      That’s because it has so many embedded tweets. Embedded tweets are loaded by Javascript after the page itself loads; the HTML doesn’t reserve vertical space for them in advance, so when the Javascript runs it makes the page taller and throws everything out of whack, especially if you’re down at the bottom typing a comment.

The Dems are simply telling us all that they have no agenda. They only have this false narrative so they will continue to play it. This could be good for Trump as it aligns with his “illegal takedown” statement. It is now time to investigate the DOJ, FBI, HRC, IRS, et al.

Notice how there are no comments from the Hillary camp. They have been so quiet I’m surprised it hasn’t sucked the oxygen out of the room. Hmmm

I’m glad AG Barr is taking his job seriously. I wish other people took theirs as seriously.

MSDNC and DNCNN should just turn off the lights and go off air.

They’re done, and all credibility is shot.

Actually I hope the Democrats continue to beat this dead horse (that’s a metaphor, PETA people) for the next year, thus insuring a 2020 Republican landslide.

Time to investigate the Dems for Benghazi, Uranium One, the Clinton Server, Clinton Foundations, etc. Yeah, I, and I suspect many others, really do want our pound of flesh.

After their party lost the election, the outgoing administration put into effect an attempt to run a soft coup against the winning administration. The moment Comey admitted he leaked his notes through his friend to the media Mueller should have been shut down. Even months of hiring political appointees into non-political federal positions failed when they tried leaking everything including the kitchen sink on the administration.

Now, even after release of the report Nadler and company have to go all in. The democrats have based two years of obstruction on the hope of Mueller finding something. That he did not shows them to be abusive idiots. They’ve got no choice but to either keep it up or admit they lied through their teeth for over two years. And if they admit the truth, they’re almost required to turn the light on Brennan, Lynch, Comey, Clapper and the rest who tried to take the government down. They can’t have that kind of light on their party because it would likely go even further.

    This. Those notes were the only reason Mueller was appointed in the first place, so as soon as it became clear to Rosenstein that he’d been played he should have reversed himself.

      You’re assuming Rosenstein wasn’t in on the seditious conspiracy.

      His failure in this instance, wearing a wire offer, and multiple other instances suggest Rosenstein was part of the conspiracy.
