NEW In first 10 mins Mueller says - wrong to say his report was 'complete exoneration' - wrong to say he found no obstruction - wrong to say he looked at collusion That directly contradicts Trump's main claims about report.
Mueller so far: * Says report doesn’t exonerate Trump on obstruction * Rarely straying beyond report * At times struggling to keep up with rapid-fire Qs * Hearing Qs from Ds about Trump efforts to fire Mueller and Sessions @davidvoreacos
Pres Trump has no plans to watch RobertMueller's testimony Wednesday, though he may see a little bit of it. But says Democrats have "gone off the deep end" about the Mueller report. Pres repeats that there was no collusion, no obstruction. “There was no nothing.” he says.
On upcoming Mueller testimony, @POTUS asks "how many bites at the apple do you get," He says Democrats want to hurt him for the 2020 election. Says there's nothing bad Mueller can say about him because his report concluded " no collusion and effectively no obstruction."
Rep. Adam Schiff calls the first volume of the Mueller report "a report about the exercise of prosecutorial judgment." "A finding of no collusion, much less a finding of no obstruction is nowhere to be seen on any page or in any passage," he says.
Attorney General William Barr "deliberately misrepresented key aspects of Mueller’s report" to create a false narrative about Trump's obstruction, says @justinamash
Rep. David Cicilline says a report that there are less redacted versions of memos about Michael Flynn's cooperation with Robert Mueller is "very explosive," adding that the memos are "relevant to the question of obstruction of justice."
"Why didn't they mention in the Mueller report all of the horrible things that we found out about the other side?" asks. "Even the 'New York Times' now says [Steele dossier] was fake," he adds, reiterating that there was "no collusion" and "no obstruction."
