This White House Official’s Notes Appear All Throughout the Mueller Report and They’re Absolutely Chilling
“Watch out for people that take so-called ‘notes,’ when the notes never existed until needed,” President Donald Trump tweeted the day after Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation report was released to the public.
William Barr Stuns Dianne Feinstein With His Defense of Donald Trump Ordering Don McGahn to Lie About Firing Robert Mueller
During his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, Attorney General William Barr insisted that President Donald Trump ordering his underlings to lie to Special Counsel Robert Mueller did not meet the definition of obstruction of justice.

Donald Trump Just Boasted That Mueller Didn't Interview Anyone Close to Him and People Immediately Brought the Receipts
President Donald Trump on Monday continued to boast about his nonexistent exoneration in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report by falsely claiming that Mueller never spoke with people in his innermost circle.
"Isn’t it amazing that the people who were closest to me, by far, and knew the Campaign better than anyone, were never even called to testify before Mueller," Trump tweeted. "The reason is that the 18 Angry Democrats knew they would all say ‘NO COLLUSION’ and only very good things!"
Donald Trump Just Told Reporters 'No One Disobeys My Orders' and People Can't Stop Sharing the Names of Everyone Who Did
Though President Donald Trump and his allies are painting the recently-released redacted Mueller Report as a total exoneration of the President for conspiracy and obstruction of justice, the White House is still struggling to spin the more damning details listed in the report (which explicitly doesn't exonerate the president on suspected obstruction).

Much has been made of the instances Special Counsel Robert Mueller examined to determine whether President Donald Trump obstructed justice now that the redacted version of his comprehensive report has been released. That the president made many attempts to shut down the investigation is clear. That he failed, in large part because many in his orbit refused to comply with his orders, is even clearer.
“The President’s efforts to influence the investigation were mostly unsuccessful, but that is largely because the persons who surrounded the President declined to carry out orders or accede to his requests,” the report said.
People Can't Stop Mocking Donald Trump For His Questionable Claim About How Smoothly the White House Is Running
President Donald Trump started his Thursday by hopping onto Twitter and boasting that the White House is operating like a "smooth running machine." Needless to say, the president has been getting dragged for it day.
"Ivanka Trump & Jared Kushner had NOTHING to do with the so-called “pushing out” of Don McGahn.The Fake News Media has it, purposely, so wrong!" Trump wrote. "They love to portray chaos in the White House when they know that chaos doesn’t exist-just a “smooth running machine” with changing parts!"
Veteran Republican Senator Had a Surprisingly Pure Response to Donald Trump's Tweet Firing His White House Counsel
President Donald Trump fired White House Counsel Don McGahn Wednesday morning in a tweet that McGahn reportedly had no idea was coming.
"White House Counsel Don McGahn will be leaving his position in the fall, shortly after the confirmation (hopefully) of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court," Trump wrote. "I have worked with Don for a long time and truly appreciate his service!"
