Trump Suggests Probes into "Traitors" in Wake of Mueller Report

"The president is saying he's been completely and totally exonerated by the report".

President Donald Trump: "There are a lot of people out there that have done some very, very evil things, very bad things-I would say treasonous things-against our country".

Scarborough noted how Trump still "lies more than any other president in the United States" and reeled off a list of falsehoods that Trump has previously told about health care, his proposed U.S. -Mexico border wall and tax cuts.

In a letter to congressional leaders, Barr said Mueller concluded that Russian Federation unquestionably meddled in the 2016 USA presidential election, but that Trump and his campaign did not conspire with Moscow to help him win the White House.

The outcome jolted the Democrats, who immediately waved it off as largely opening the path for over a dozen investigations already ongoing against Mr Trump than an absolute exoneration of the president. But asked on Monday if Mueller had acted honourably, Trump said: "Yes".

Six House Democratic committee chairmen wrote to Barr and asked to have Mueller's full report by April 2.

President Donald Trump on Tuesday branded the mainstream media the "enemy" and the "opposition party" after the Mueller report cleared him of collusion, accusing journalists of covering the Russian Federation probe unfairly.

According to the Committee Chairmen, Barr's summary is "not sufficient for Congress, as a coequal branch of government, to perform this critical work".

"The Mueller investigation is the gold standard", White House counselor Kellyanne Conway told reporters Tuesday during a 20-minute question-and-answer session outside the West Wing. By the end of the month, Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., is still planning to introduce her resolution calling for the Judiciary Committee to investigate grounds for Trump's impeachment.

The memo quotes six individuals, four of whom are serving Democratic politicians, making claims about the existence of evidence of collusion between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation.

On the other side of the Capitol, Republicans in the House blamed Democrats who now wield the chamber's majority - and, in particular, Schiff - for fanning the flames of a collusion storyline they say Mueller has now debunked.

Trump had repeatedly accused Mueller, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation director, of running a "witch hunt" with a team of "thugs" and having conflicts of interest. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham promised to "unpack the other side of the story" of the Russian Federation investigation.

Many Democrats say Barr is conflicted because of his views - expressed in a memo to the administration before becoming attorney general - that the president can not be charged with obstruction since he oversees the Justice Department.

Trump also said he had not thought about pardoning anyone convicted or who pleaded guilty in the Mueller probe.
