While speaking about reducing drug prices by cutting out the middlemen, Trump dropped this line saying, “So, I have a lot of enemies out there. This might be the last...

    Attorney General William Barr stressed Thursday during his press conference that although Special counsel Robert Mueller detailed 10 “episodes” involving actions by President Trump that might have constituted obstruction of justice, neither the DOJ, nor Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein believed those actions violated the law. Barr said based on the evidence that Trump’s action had “non-corrupt motives.” The redacted version of Mueller’s report was released late Thursday. The very few redactions in the behemoth report show the reasons for the decisions, which were based on recommendations made by the intelligence community, DOJ and Mueller prosecutors to protect classified information,...

Chairman Richard Burr and Vice Chairman Mark Warner announced Wednesday that their investigation showed Russia tried to interfere with the 2016 election, but that the outcome was correct. They said their investigation has expanded as a result of the new revelations, and cautioned they could not comment about...
