Here, Read the Mueller Report for Yourself Since That Press Conference Was Nonsense

Trump yells nonsense at no one.

Donald Trump’s hand-picked attorney general, William Barr, gave a press conference this morning ahead of the release of a redacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian meddling in the 2016 election. However, you may just want to read the whole thing for yourself (which you can do online, right here), after Barr’s admission that he disagreed with Mueller’s theories on Donald Trump’s obstruction of justice.

This version of the report is redacted partially because some of it has to do with legal matters that are still ongoing. Barr said it would be only lightly redacted:

The full report is over 400 pages long, though, so it’s unlikely most of us will ever read it in its entirety, but it’s likely to be an interesting few days as individual aspects of the report are discussed in the news. Donald Trump, of course, has already claimed that this all exonerates him, with a Game of Thrones-themed image on Twitter, despite that HBO hasn’t been thrilled with his affinity for one of their most famous shows in the past.

Importantly, though, this isn’t over yet:
