Hollywood joined Democrats and the establishment media in going into full meltdown mode Thursday following Attorney General William Barr releasing the full Mueller report to the public. Celebrities accused President Donald Trump of being “guilty” and called the report a cover-up.
As Barr already stated in his letter to Congress in March, the Mueller probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election found no evidence of the Trump campaign colluding with Russia, and did not recommend criminal charges against the president for obstruction of justice.
Hollywood, having learned nothing since their last Mueller meltdown, simply quadrupled down on their claims that President Trump is a criminal.
Actor John Cusack, without explanation, claimed that William Barr was engaging in a “complete whitewash coverup.”
Barr = complete whitewash coverup
A press circus orchestrated by the White House – 💯 corruption

Actress Jamie Lee Curtis ominously quoted from the Mueller report, “if we had confidence after a thorough investigation of the facts that the President clearly did not commit obstruction of justice, we would so state. Based on the facts and the applicable legal standards, we are unable to reach that judgment.”
“At the same time, if we had confidence after a thorough investigation of the facts that the President clearly did not commit obstruction of justice, we would so state. Based on the facts and the applicable legal standards, we are unable to reach that judgment.”

Meanwhile, Sophia Bush mocked the redactions.
Glad the report helps us get to the bottom of things. https://t.co/W4fkWa7Mxb

Patricia Arquette used her social media to baselessly speculate about Mueller’s funding being cut off.
I wish a reporter would have asked Barr if Mueller finished with his investigation unimpeded or if he was asked by anyone to conclude it or if funding was stopped in any way.

Rob Delaney remarked that Trump was simply a “garden variety criminal.”
I’m not counting on even a Dem led House to do what’s right, so I’d never thought the Mueller report would solve all our problems (We will; through direct action, unions, strikes, protests, primarying, etc) but holy shit it is damning & the president is a garden variety criminal.

Remember: when you are reading the Mueller Report and see a redaction it is safe to assume that’s where Don Jr. said something stupid and incriminating

Am I reading this right? The president failed to meet the prosecutorial threshold to be charged with obstruction largely because his aides and associates refused to carry out his orders?

It took 6 years to get Dictator Nixon out of office. He hated the press, and worked hard to put marginalized poor & brown people behind bars for non violent offenses. We have faced this before & must stay focused on the clear ways Trump has committed impeachable offenses, TAXES.
