Trump seems to be in jubilant spirits since getting William Barr’s interpretation that the Mueller report exonerates him (despite even Barr’s interpretation saying the opposite), so he is in the mood to CELEBRATE — PAR-TAY baby!
So how does Trump celebrate?
• Immediately try to throw 20+ million people off health care
• Tried to cut all funding for Special Olympics and reduce education funding for blind and deaf until overruled by public outrage
• Reductions to Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security that he promised he would never do
• Cut all hurricane relief for Puerto Rico (and withhold funds that have already been authorized)
And that’s Trump in a GOOD mood!
Or maybe Trump is NOT in such a “good” mood — maybe he is lashing out because he knows Barr’s interpretation of Mueller’s report concludes that the Trump Tower meeting with Russians, Manafort giving polling data to Russians, Trump calling for Russians to hack Hillary’s email and Roger Stone coordinating with Guccifer 2.0 and WikiLeaks did not rise to the level of provability “beyond a reasonable doubt” as Russian collusion. And he does not want us to see the full scope of Mueller’s analysis of these subjects.
And even Barr admits that Russia committed crimes by interfering with the election, legitimizing the investigation of that crime, and that there are both inculpating and exculpating factors suggesting that Trump did try to obstruct that legitimate investigation by firing James Comey, firing Jeff Sessions, publicly undermining the legitimacy of the investigations, etc. And Trump sure as heck doesn’t want us to see Mueller’s comments on those.
And you know darn well that if the actual report were as exonerating as Trump is claiming, he would be ordering it released immediately. ANYONE who is wrongly accused of anything and HAS PROOF of their innocence, wants that proof of innocence made public and they want it FAST.
