This article was first published in March 2019. As it turns out, the Democrats are still going after President Donald Trump — and he’s not even in office.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller found that the Trump campaign did not collude with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election, which Hillary Clinton lost. After a 22-month investigation, Mueller didn’t find any evidence that President Donald Trump tried to obstruct justice in the case. From Fox News:
In a four-page letter to the leaders of the House and Senate Judiciary committees, Attorney General William Barr wrote that Mueller, a former FBI director, “did not find that the Trump campaign, or anyone associated with it, conspired or coordinated with the Russian government” or Russia-linked organizations in either “disinformation and social media operations” or “computer hacking operations designed to gather and disseminate information to influence the  election.”
Barr also wrote that he and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had concluded that evidence collected by Mueller’s investigators “is not sufficient to establish that the President committed an obstruction-of-justice offense.” The attorney general added that Mueller had written: “while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.”
Will President Donald Trump and other Republicans campaign on this issue? How will Democrats respond?
