Since summing up Attorney Bill Barr's report, President Donald Trump has claimed that the report says there is "no hindrance" – he has continued to assert this claim since the publication of the edited report.
First Facts: Trump is wrong in constipation, but correct in collusion.
The report clearly states, "While this report does not exclude that the President has committed a crime, he does not relieve it" on issues of disability. Mueller also writes that "we did not draw definitive conclusions about the President's conduct" and were unable to pass judgment on the issue of disability.
Trump agrees, however, that the report found no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. While the report did not establish "collusion" between Trump's representatives or the campaign and Russia's intervention in the 201
Facts first: The report confirms that McGahn was asked to get Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is to fire Mueller
In several Interviews with McGahn and others said in the report, after a message with the news that Trump had given McGahn orders to shoot Muller, "the President wanted … McGahn to deny that he had been instructed to remove the Special Counsel McGahn declined the order and "insisted that his memory of the President's order to remove the Special Counsel was correct," the report said.
Later, in a conversation with McGahn, Trump said, "I did I said the word "fire"? "McGahn replied," What you said is, "Call Rod, tell Rod that Müller has conflicts and can not be the Special Adviser." Trump replied he had not e said "fire" and just wanted McGahn to direct Rosenstein's attention to the perceived problem and leave it to the report.
McGahn understood, however, that Trump said, "Call Rod, there are conflicts, and Müller must go," the report said.
Trump Tower Meeting
CNN's Jim Acosta asked Conway, "Why did we originally tell a false story that the meeting was Russian adoption?" Conway disapproved of the characterization of Acosta, pointing out that the Trump Jr. statement said that the meeting was "mainly" about Russian adoptions.
First Facts: The presumption that Trump Jr.'s first statement on the meeting was confirmed was confirmed by the Mueller report is false.
However, the Mueller report describes how Trump Jr. was promised "" official documents and information that would burden Hillary and her dealings with Russia "as" part of Russia and his government's support for Mr. Trump. " Replying to this offer, Trump Jr. wrote back, "If that's what you say, I love it." The meeting was then scheduled.
According to the report, when the Russian lawyer, with whom Trump Jr. and his staff met at the Trump Tower, could not provide any incriminating information about Clinton, the conversation turned to the Magnitsky Act, which sanctioned several top Russian officials , In response to these sections, Russia has banned all adoptions from Russia to the US.
The assumption that the meeting was "primarily" about Russian adoptions is completely misleading. In the report of Mueller it is said that the reason for the interest of the Trump government at the meeting was the promised "dirt" on Clinton. The claim also ignores the discussion of the Magnitsky Act documented in the report.
Testimony to Mueller
Mueller and his team interviewed Hope Hicks, Sarah Sanders, both Campaign's top campaign officials, along with campaign leader Corey Lewandowski, campaign leader Paul Manafort, campaign chairperson Steve Bannon, and campaign head Law, Jared Kushner.
Facebook Ads from Russia
First Facts: Russia's efforts to disrupt the presidential 2016 election on social media amounted to more than "a few" Facebook ads.
The Internet Research Agency, a group backed by the Russian government, "bought over 3,500 ads and spent around $ 100,000," the report said, citing Facebook.
The Internet Research Agency promoted Facebook based groups with these ads. The agency's sites on these pages, according to the report, reached between 29 million and 126 million US persons. While the impact of these efforts on the 2016 elections is under discussion, Kushner's characterization as an agency buying "a few Facebook ads" is wrong.
