Barr: “President Trump faced an unprecedented situation. As he entered into office, and sought to perform his responsibilities as President, federal agents and prosecutors were scrutinizing his conduct before and after taking office, and the conduct of some of his associates… Yet, as he said from the beginning, there was in fact no collusion. And as the Special Counsel’s report acknowledges, there is substantial evidence to show that the President was frustrated and angered by a sincere belief that the investigation was undermining his presidency, propelled by his political opponents, and fuelled by illegal leaks.”
Kellyanne Conway reiterates call for Adam Schiff’s resignation after Mueller report’s release: “Not only should he resign, he should produce the evidence that he said he has. If he has evidence of collusion”
White House counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway doubled down on her call for Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) to resign as House Intelligence Committee Chairman as he was a leading figure in the Russia investigation which, according to special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, found no evidence of witting collusion by the Trump campaign.
“Not only should he resign, he should produce the evidence that he said he has,” she said. Conway seemed to refer to Schiff’s recent claim that “significant evidence of collusion” existed.
“If he has evidence of collusion that somehow the special counsel couldn’t find over 22 months and $35 million of our money, I want Adam Schiff to produce that,” Conway said. “He ought to put up or shut up.”
