Mueller report is ‘beginning of the beginning,’ Axios editor in chief says

Axios’ editor in chief, Nicholas Johnston, said on Thursday that controversy surrounding the Russia investigation was far from over, given the criminal referrals and the copious redactions in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report.

“This is the beginning of the beginning,” Johnston said of the report, which included 14 criminal referrals and concerns about obstruction of justice.

“There are 14 referrals from the Mueller investigation — we know what two of them are. There are 12 more that were completely unknown which can also lead to other criminal prosecutions,” Johnston told Fox News host Shepard Smith.

“There are at least … nine ongoing investigations in Congress and on state and local levels,” he added on “Shepard Smith Reporting.”

Johnston’s comments came just hours after President Trump declared “Game Over” in the Russia investigation.

White House adviser Kellyanne Conway also appeared to take a victory lap on Thursday when she told reporters she would accept their apologies and that the report ended the “lie” they’d “let fly” for the first two years of Trump’s presidency.

While the Mueller report didn’t find evidence of collusion with Russia, it did highlight 10 concerns related to potential obstruction of justice.

Both Attorney General William Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein concluded that the report didn’t show sufficient evidence to warrant obstruction charges, although Mueller said he didn’t “exonerate” the president.

Democrats are expected to continue pursuing the obstruction concerns as part of ongoing congressional investigations and in connection with their strategy for defeating Trump in the 2020 presidential election.

Johnston said Mueller provided a “roadmap” for Congress to continue investigating the president, but predicted the report itself wouldn’t create much change in polling on the issue.

Brian Kilmeade: Trump was ‘right’ to appear angry after Mueller’s appointment

Fox & Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade said Thursday President Trump was “right” to appear angry after Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s appointment, adding “It’s been two years of hell for him.”

Kilmeade made the statement while joining Fox News chief national correspondent Ed Henry on “The Daily Briefing with Dana Perino” and in response to an excerpt in the Mueller report that Perino said could be “misinterpreted” by some of President Trump’s opponents.

According to the excerpt, which was released to the public on Thursday morning, Trump said his presidency was finished, going so far as to state he was “f—ed”, after being told of Mueller’s appointment by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

TRUMP THOUGHT PRESIDENCY WAS OVER WHEN TOLD OF MUELLER’S APPOINTMENT: ‘THIS IS THE END… I’M F—ED’

“According to notes written by (Sessions’ chief of staff Jody) Hunt, when Sessions told the President that a Special Counsel had been appointed, the President slumped back in his chair, and said, ‘Oh my God.  This is terrible. This is the end of my Presidency. I’m f……’,” the report reads.

“The President became angry and lambasted the Attorney General for his decision to recuse from the investigation, stating, ‘How could you let this happen, Jeff?’

“I think the critics are going to pounce on this,” said Henry, adding that the excerpt could be misinterpreted to mean that it was at this point the President knew he was in trouble because “he did criminally bad things and he’s going to get caught.”

MUELLER REPORT SHOWS PROBE DID NOT FIND COLLUSION EVIDENCE, REVEALS TRUMP EFFORTS TO SIDELINE KEY PLAYERS

Henry added, “That’s not what the President was saying based on the rest of the report in the full context. In fact, there are other lines right after that that suggest what we’re saying, that the president knew politically, this is going to be so damaging and he couldn’t believe that Jeff Sessions had recused himself.”

“By the way, he (President Trump) was right. It’s been two years of hell for him,” Kilmeade said.

“Two years of wasted parts of his presidency,” said Henry in agreement. “Meanwhile the economy is still doing pretty well. He’s still trying to crack down on immigration.”

Henry then brought up what the president said at a news event on Thursday, shortly after Barr held a press conference discussing the Mueller report.

“He (President Trump) talked about the acting defense secretary and wiping out ISIS. All of that has been going on while Washington and others have been consumed by this (the Mueller investigation) which turns out to be a whole lot of nothing,” said Henry.

“I don’t want to say nothing all together, there’s some troubling information about alleged obstruction. But we’ve been told for two years by Adam Schiff and others, there’s evidence, not allegations, evidence of collusion and there’s not.”

Karl Rove says it’s a ‘mistake’ for Democrats to pursue obstruction concerns in Mueller report

Fox News political contributor Karl Rove predicted Thursday that some Democratic politicians would make a “mistake” by using special counsel Robert Mueller’s report to continue attacking President Donald Trump and pursuing investigations into his conduct.

His comments came just before House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., held a press conference at which he leaned on the report’s concerns regarding 10 items related to potential obstruction of justice. Rove told Fox News host Dana Perino on “The Daily Briefing” that those items gave Democrats “fodder” to “continue to hammer the president.”

The report itself did not exonerate Trump on obstruction of justice, but both Attorney General William Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein determined the report lacked sufficient evidence to level formal charges.

Rove also predicted that while some Democrats would try to highlight the obstruction concerns before the 2020 presidential elections, other, “wise” politicians would focus on other issues.

HIGHLIGHTS FROM MUELLER’S REPORT ON RUSSIA INVESTIGATION

“I wouldn’t be surprised in the next week or two — yeah, you’re going to have the hot dogs and the lunatics and the wannabe’s like [Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif.,] say ‘by God, impeach,'” Rove said.

He added that politicians like 2020 candidate and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., would back away from “trashing Trump” and recognize it as a losing strategy. Rove said that based on the report, “we’re likely to see little impact on the president’s numbers and his opposition’s numbers.”

Democrats, Rove warned, could go “over-the-top” and act like congressional Republicans who pushed for former President Bill Clinton’s impeachment in 1998.

“[Democrats] could do exactly what Republicans did in 1998 and that is cause a lot of the American people to say, ‘you know what, too much, you’re over-the-top, you’re out of control.'”

Kellyanne Conway reiterates call for Adam Schiff’s resignation after Mueller report’s release

White House counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway doubled down on her call for Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) to resign as House Intelligence Committee Chairman as he was a leading figure in the Russia investigation which, according to special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, found no evidence of witting collusion by the Trump campaign.

“Not only should he resign, he should produce the evidence that he said he has,” she said. Conway seemed to refer to Schiff’s recent claim that “significant evidence of collusion” existed.

“If he has evidence of collusion that somehow the special counsel couldn’t find over 22 months and $35 million of our money, I want Adam Schiff to produce that,” Conway said. “He ought to put up or shut up.”

MUELLER REPORT SHOWS PROBE DID NOT FIND COLLUSION EVIDENCE, REVEALS TRUMP’S EFFORTS TO SIDELINE KEY PLAYERS

Schiff, Conway charged, took part in a “political proctology exam” that ultimately yielded a “clean bill of health” for the president.

Conway’s appearance came just after Attorney General Bill Barr held a press conference in which he said Mueller’s report did not yield sufficient evidence to accuse Trump of either collusion or obstruction of justice.

She also defended Barr who has received a torrent of criticism for his conduct in the weeks leading up to the report’s release.

“The way they talk about Attorney General Barr, calling for his resignation. He is the chief law enforcement officer of this land and he did a fantastic job today laying out [the Mueller report].”

Formerly Trump’s 2016 campaign manager, Conway claimed that Mueller’s findings “completely” discredited the idea that Trump somehow unfairly beat his opponent, former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

“The central premise that Hillary Clinton says that she lost the election because of Jim Comey, she lost the election because of Russian interference. This blows that out of the water completely,” she said.

Earlier in the interview, Conway said that the president “won that election fairly and squarely.” The report, she said, showed that “we didn’t need Wikileaks or anything beyond Hillary Clinton herself to get negative information.”

“You know how what I did as campaign manager to get negative information on Hillary Clinton? I got it from Hillary Clinton. She was an awful candidate,” Conway added.

Rudy Giuliani on the release of the Mueller Report: ‘This president has been treated totally unfairly’

Shortly after Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report was released to Congress and the public, President Trump’s personal attorney, Rudolph Giuliani, reacted to the findings on“America’s Newsroom” saying: “This president has been treated totally unfairly.”

“We’re very, very happy,” he added. “I mean it’s a clear victory. I think any lawyer would say when you get a declination you just won.”

READ THE REPORT

Giuliani said he read “every single page” of the nearly 500-page report on Mueller’s nearly two-year investigation into Russian meddling and potential collusion with Trump campaign associates during the 2016 presidential election. Giuliani said he started reading the report on Tuesday and had to go to a “secure room” in the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) building to go through it. He said he wasn’t allowed to take the report out of the building or photograph it.

As stated in Attorney General William Barr’s summary last month, and reiterated again at his press conference Thursday morning, the special counsel did not find evidence of collusion with members of the Trump campaign and Russia.

MUELLER REPORT SHOWS PROBE DID NOT FIND COLLUSION EVIDENCE, REVEALS TRUMP EFFORTS TO SIDELINE KEY PLAYERS

“While the investigation identified numerous links between individuals with ties to the Russian government and individuals associated with the Trump Campaign, the evidence was not sufficient to support criminal charges,” the report said.

The version of the report that the Justice Department made public Thursday includes redactions, consistent with Barr’s plan to black out portions of the document—including grand jury material.

The report also dove into possible obstruction of justice allegations, while stating the special counsel did not make a traditional prosecutorial judgment regarding the president’s conduct on that front. The report noted that they obtained evidence about the president’s “actions and intent,” and that presented “difficult issues that would need to be resolved” if they were making a traditional judgment.

TRUMP BLASTS RUSSIA PROBE AS ‘HOAX’ AND ‘HARASSMENT’ AHEAD OF MUELLER REPORT RELEASE

“While this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him,” the report stated.

Giuliani said: “This is a little strange because the special counsel has used a standard of proof that’s unheard of. He (Mueller) says he can’t be conclusively sure that the president didn’t commit obstruction, well you know, that means the president has to prove his innocence, which kind of upends 2,000 years of jurisprudence. But be that as it may, that’s the reason maybe why he was confused.”

He then referenced the second page of the Mueller report. “He says we can’t conclude the president committed a crime but we can’t exonerate him. Well, nobody is asking him to exonerate him. And the reality is that the overarching principle of obstruction law is very, very hard to make an obstruction case when there is no proof there is an underlying crime so you have to assume the president is innocent, which he is,” said Giuliani.

Giuliani added that he thinks “it would be good” if Mueller testified before Congress adding, “This all began as, ‘was there collusion with the Russians?’ And now we’re having an academic debate over obstruction of justice.”

He went on to say: “The big victory is, no collusion with the Russians. I don’t think you could be any clearer, you can read that collusion 200 pages as much as you want. Believe me, I was up two nights going through it and you are not going to find a darn thing that shows that President Trump or anybody on his campaign had any kind of connection with whatever the Russians were doing.”

Attorney General William Barr’s statements to the press before the redacted Mueller report on the Russia investigation was released to the public made him appear as though he was a counselor to the president rather the attorney general, Fox News anchor Chris Wallace said Thursday.

Barr offered a staunch defense of President Trump on Thursday morning during the press conference where he previewed the report’s findings and explained why he and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein concluded that the president had not obstructed justice.

READ THE ROBERT MUELLER REPORT

He also said it was important to consider the “context” for Trump’s actions during the past two years.

“President Trump faced an unprecedented situation. As he entered into office and sought to perform his responsibilities as President, federal agents and prosecutors were scrutinizing his conduct before and after taking office and the conduct of some of his associates,” Barr said. “At the same time, there was relentless speculation in the news media about the President’s personal culpability. Yet, as he said from the beginning, there was, in fact, no collusion.”

Reacting to the news conference, Wallace told “America’s Newsroom” Barr “seemed almost to be acting as the counselor for the defense, the counselor for the president.”

“The Attorney General seemed almost to be acting as the counselor for the defense, the counselor for the president, rather than the attorney general, talking about his motives, talking about his anger, his feeling that this was unfair,” he told anchors Bill Hemmer and Sandra Smith. “Really, as I say, making a case for the president.”

Wallace went on to say that Democrats will come down hard on the portions regarding obstruction laid out in the report.

President Trump’s cooperation with Mueller probe was ‘unprecedented’: Ken Starr

Contrary to Democrat claims President Trump sought to obstruct the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, he actually cooperated to an unprecedented extent, according to former independent counsel Ken Starr.

Starr, who was the independent counsel who investigated the Whitewater and Monica Lewinsky scandals during the Clinton administration, made the comment on “America’s Newsroom” Thursday:

“The president famously does not hold things back. He hated this whole thing, called it a witch hunt. But…actions speak louder than words.

“For the White House counsel to spend 30 hours answering questions of Bob Mueller and his staff is extraordinary, talk about unprecedented,” Starr said. “That’s an unprecedented level of cooperation with a special counsel investigation.”

TRUMP BLASTS RUSSIA PROBE

Starr added: “Here is a key that no one should lose sight of — Bill Clinton committed crimes. Richard Nixon committed crimes. Whatever this report shows, the bottom line is no crimes are being charged by those who are charged with making that decision — that’s the Justice Department.”

Attorney General William Barr told reporters at a morning press conference that special counsel Robert Mueller’s report recounts 10 episodes involving President Trump that were investigated as potential acts of criminal obstruction of justice. Barr said Mueller did not reach a “prosecutorial judgment” and that he and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein concluded the evidence was not sufficient to establish the president committed an offense.

Barr said Trump did not exert executive privilege over any information included in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report. He said the White House counsel reviewed a redacted version of the report before Trump decided not to invoke executive privilege.

Barr has said redactions in the report’s release are legally mandated.to protect four broad areas of concern: sensitive grand jury-related matters, classified information, ongoing investigations and the privacy or reputation of uncharged “peripheral” people.

On “America’s Newsroom,” Starr said: “We shouldn’t forget this all began about collusion, and so I think this will be very helpful [in] reminding us that while the Russians attempted to reach out to Trump campaign folks, apparently those efforts were not accepted or [were] rebuffed. I think that will be a big plus sign for President Trump and the integrity of the campaign.”

Attorney General William Barr sparred with a reporter during a brief press conference Thursday in which he laid out the release of the Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report into the Russia probe.

During his prepared statement to the press, Barr explained his and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s decision to clear President Donald Trump of any obstruction in relation to Mueller’s investigation. He said that Trump faced “an unprecedented situation.”

BARR AFFIRMS MUELLER PROBE FOUND NO EVIDENCE OF RUSSIA-TRUMP COLLUSION, PREPARES TO RELEASE REPORT

“As he entered office and sought to perform his responsibilities as president, federal agents and prosecutors were scrutinizing his conduct before and after taking office and the conduct of some of his associates,” Barr read of his statement, adding that there was “relentless speculation” in the media about the president’s culpability. “Yet, as he said from the beginning, there was in fact, no collusion.”

In her question to Barr, CBS News White House Correspondent Paula Reid brought up his use of the word “unprecedented” and how his comments were “quite generous to the president and his feelings and emotions.”

“It just seems like there is a lot effort – to go out of your way to acknowledge how this was difficult for him,” she added.

Barr appeared to bristle at the question, responding with his own: “Is there another precedent for it?”

“No,” the reporter answered.

“OK so unprecedented is an accurate description,” he said.

The reporter tried to ask Barr about people who are concerned that he is trying to protect the president.

Barr did not acknowledge her question and moved on.

The attorney general said Thursday that his department would be released the lightly redacted report to the public by 11 a.m. that morning.

Dems will try to ‘connect the dots’ to push back against ‘ultimate trump card’ in Mueller report: Brody

President Trump‘s supporters can expect to hear the same liberal talking points of collusion and obstruction following the release of the redacted Mueller report, a political analyst told Fox News.

David Brody, Christian Broadcasting Network chief political correspondent, appeared on “Fox & Friends” and broke down the Democrat narrative of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign Thursday ahead of the report’s release.

“Donald Trump has the ultimate trump card, right?” Brody told Fox News chief national correspondent Ed Henry. “No collusion.”

IN MUELLER REPORT’S RELEASE TRUMP LOOKS FOR VINDICATION, BUT NEW FIGHTS LOOM

He added: “I think what we are going to see with Democrats today is… they’re going to try to connect the dots and Adam Schiff is going to have some sort of collusion diagram going on.”

Democrats, Brody charged, could end up contradicting themselves by questioning what Mueller found — despite previously praising him.

“Democrats can’t have it both ways, here. They wanted a special counsel, they got it. They said Mueller is a fair guy, and now all of a sudden, Mueller doesn’t know what he is talking about. That doesn’t work.”

Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer put out a statement ahead of the Barr news conference saying they want Mueller to testify, which Brody calls the “nook and cranny strategy” to figure out a way to put Mueller in front of Congress.

He then took aim at those in the media critical of Barr’s news conference, slated for 9:30 a.m. ET.

“The media complaining about a press conference. Let me get this straight — Bill Barr is going to have a press conference and you can ask him questions about a process. No, no, no, no. We don’t want to do it. We don’t want that press conference? What in the world? It’s upside down,” Brody said.

Nearly two years of fevered speculation surrounding the Russia probe, though, will come to a head in a dramatic television finale-like moment on Thursday morning, when Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein are set to hold a press conference to discuss the Mueller report’s public release.

It was not immediately clear exactly when on Thursday the DOJ would release the redacted version of the nearly 400-page investigation into Russian election meddling, but the document was expected to be delivered to lawmakers and posted online by noon.

Barr has said redactions in the report’s release are legally mandated.to protect four broad areas of concern: sensitive grand jury-related matters, classified information, ongoing investigations and the privacy or reputation of uncharged “peripheral” people.

The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Democrat New York Rep. Jerrold Nadler, has said he is prepared to issue subpoenas “very quickly” for the full report if it is released with blacked-out sections, likely setting in motion a major legal battle.
