After 22 months, 25 millions dollars, and 500 interviews, Special Counsel Robert Mueller finally gave his final reports to U.S. Attorney General Barr.  Barr then released a 4 page memo outlining the findings. And, drum roll please, Mueller concluded that there was no conspiracy between Trump and the Russians.  As one might imagine, Trump and the GOP jumped on this, claimed complete vindication and exoneration.  They then turned on the Democrats. The problem is, while Trump is apparently correct about the conspiracy piece with the Russians, we still haven't seen the Muller report, just the Barr report.  The problem is that the obstruction question, frequently the one that people get hung up on, think Martha Stewart, is still up in the air.  Barr said it was insufficient, but Mueller didn't say that.  As you might imagine, this where the Democrats are hanging their hats. 

I appear on Voice of America International Ediiton to discuss.  After so long, the country is tired and surly and wondering what comes next.
