After Sessions recused himself, Trump urged him several times to unrecuse himself.

It accepted the longstanding Justice Department view that a sitting president may not be indicted as part of legal analysis for obstruction. There was no collusion and no obstruction of the effort to uncover whether there had been.

To call what went on in the 24 hours leading up to Attorney General William Barr's Thursday press conference a "feeding frenzy" would be an insult to vultures tearing apart fresh carrion by the roadside.

Reid attempted to regain control of the question, but Barr was apparently unimpressed with the reporter's efforts and moved on to take other questions.

In June 2017, Mr Trump directed White House counsel Don McGahn to tell the then-acting attorney general that Mr Mueller had conflicts of interest and must be removed, the report said.

"Again not reading it, but hearing it in the reports that there was definitely a Russian desire to have the Trump candidacy be the winning candidacy", Tonko said.

Hollywood, having learned nothing since their last Mueller meltdown, simply quadrupled down on their claims that President Trump is a criminal. "It's clear that Barr took President Trump's admonition to his predecessor that "You were supposed to protect me" as a job description, and this creates an incredibly risky precedent for the future".

The attorney general also said Mueller did not make a "traditional prosecutorial judgement" regarding allegations that U.S. President Donald Trump had obstructed justice. This is awful. This is the end of my Presidency.

McGahn refused - deciding he would rather resign than trigger what he regarded as a potential Saturday Night Massacre of Watergate firings fame.

Russia thought it could benefit from a Trump presidency, and the Trump campaign thought it could benefit from the information stolen and released through Russian efforts.

Even with the release of the report, Democrats continue calling for the full, unredacted report.

Democrats criticized Barr for a news conference they said amounted to an attempt to frame the findings before the report was released.

Sen. Ron Wyden, who's made data privacy one of his main priorities, also criticized Barr in a tweet, saying, the Attorney General "proved beyond a doubt he is here to defend Trump at all costs, facts be damned".

Redactions appeared on 22 of 182 pages in the obstruction section and also showed up in the report's table of contents.

Debra Messing echoed CNN's Ana Navarro, who called Attorney General Barr "disloyal to the Constitution". He also wanted Sessions to announce that Trump had done "nothing wrong" and to say that the investigation's scope had been limited. The investigation did not find evidence that the Trump campaign recovered any such Clinton emails, or that these contacts were part of a coordinated effort between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign. Former communications employee Hope Hicks said that she saw the president shortly after and described him as being extremely upset, to the degree she'd only seen one other time, when the Access Hollywood tape came out during the campaign.
