Mueller statement: No exoneration

This Poser Prez we've been saddled with for the 29 long months works so hard to spin all the breathtakingly-horrible events in his accursed administration.

And the sycophants around him are first-class spinmeisters, too.

So, of course AG Billy Barr and the MAGAts who work for the head of the trump crime family did their very best to spread the utterly-ridiculous notion that the Mueller Report was a full exoneration for the boss.

It succeeded. Brilliantly. They're good at what they do.

The fact that trump was able to find an AG who will run political interference for him and act as his personal attorney--something he said he wanted from day one--is a stunning development in itself. It could certainly be fodder for another post.

But that's been covered by so many journos and bloggers that I don't need to go there.

But the MAGA crowd believes the lies and spin--as they always do--and that narrative ruled the day.

So it comes as no surprise that Bob Mueller knew he had to step up and engage in some truth-telling.

And it's a very good thing that he did.

The full transcript of his statement is here.

Although we know that what he said yesterday will have absolutely no effect on the trump faithful, it was a badly-needed correction to Barr's evil spin and will help keep hope alive for those of us who still believe that the thug who now occupies the Oval Office will one day be called to account for his many crimes.
