Trump team turns tables after Mueller report, calls for investigation into probe's origin

President Trump and his legal team declared total victory Sunday following the release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s key findings -- including no evidence of collusion with Russia during the 2016 campaign -- but sought to turn the tables by renewing calls to investigate the investigators.

Trump himself slammed the probe as an “illegal takedown,” as he called Mueller’s report a “complete exoneration” and said it was a “shame” his presidency had to deal with the investigation for two years.

“Hopefully somebody is going to look at the other side,” Trump said. “This was an illegal takedown that failed and hopefully somebody is going to be looking at the other side.”

READ THE FULL LETTER

In case it wasn't clear what he meant, Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani told Fox News an investigation should be launched into how the investigation began.

“He was being investigated for a crime that never happened,” Giuliani said. “There was never any collusion.”

Giuliani added: "There has to be a full and complete investigation, with at least as much enthusiasm as this one, to figure out where did this charge emanate, who started it, who paid for it.”

The former New York mayor specifically called out one of Trump’s most vocal critics, Rep. Adam Schiff, asking the California lawmaker where the evidence of collusion is that Schiff has said he has.

“Where is Schiff’s evidence?” Giuliani asked. “Where is it? In his head?”

Earlier in the day, Schiff – the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee – said that despite Mueller handing in the report on Friday without any recommendations for new indictments, that doesn't mean "there isn't compelling and incriminating evidence that should be shared with the American people."

Speaking on ABC’s “This Week,” Schiff said his committee wants the full report and the underlying materials made public and will head to court to compel Barr to release them. He says the intelligence committee has an obligation to determine whether the president is compromised in any way, whether criminal or not.

Trump has maintained since the announcement of the special counsel’s investigation that he never colluded with Russia during the 2016 campaign. He has long decried the probe as a "witch hunt" while attacking the FBI figures who launched the original Russia probe that was eventually taken over by Mueller in 2017. He and his allies have also questioned what role the unverified and salacious anti-Trump "dossier" played in the probe's beginnings.

While Barr’s letter on the special counsel’s report says that Mueller found no evidence of coordination with Russia, it did not make a determination on whether Trump committed obstruction of justice in the Russia probe. Attorney General William Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein determined that evidence gathered by Mueller was insufficient on that front.

Giuliani: Trump 'Investigated for Crime That Never Happened'

President Donald Trump has every right to be angry he was "being investigated for a crime that never happened" by "people who hate him," the president's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani said Sunday.

In remarks on Fox News' "America's News HQ," Giuliani called for an investigation now "to figure out where did the charge emanate?"

"I can see why he would be upset and the president has told me numerous times no other president should ever have to go through this," Giuliani said. "I think there has to be a full and complete investigation to figure out where did the charge emanate, who started it and who paid for it?"

According to Giuliani, the Mueller report summary released by Attorney General William Barr on Sunday "was [a] far better report than I expected."

He also directed a message to Democrats in the wake of special counsel Robert Mueller's determination there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

"I would just say to them, please think about the country no matter how much you like or dislike the president, agree or disagree with policies," he said. "He has been unfairly treated with regard to collusion, certainly they have to see that and all what they are trying to do now is completely political and I hope some of them, I put out a tweet saying I hope that [Rep. Adam] Schiff [D-Calif.] and a couple of others apologize."

In an interview with CNN, Giuliani called for the public release of Mueller's full report.

"Sure," he said when asked about releasing the full report. "We would all like it to happen, because if it doesn't happen, somebody is going to say there is something in there."

5 key takeaways from Mueller report summary in Russia investigation

In a letter released on Sunday, Attorney General William Barr released the "principal conclusions" of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report on his investigation of President Trump, his 2016 campaign and allegations of collusion with Russia.

The four-page letter, addressed to top Democrats and Republicans on the House and Senate Judiciary Committees, offered key insight into the nearly two-year-long investigation, the results of which were submitted to the Justice Department on Friday.

READ THE MUELLER REPORT FINDINGS

Probe does not find collusion between Trump campaign and Russia 

Mueller's investigation "did not find that the Trump campaign, or anyone associated with it, conspired or coordinated" with Russians who worked on those hacking efforts "despite multiple offers from Russian-affiliated individuals to assist the Trump campaign," Barr detailed in his letter.

Insufficient evidence for Trump obstructing justice

The attorney general said that the special counsel conducted a "thorough factual investigation" into whether Trump possibly obstructed justice. Mueller's office, however, "determined not to make a traditional prosecutorial judgment."

The special counsel "did not draw a conclusion" as to what constituted obstruction of justice, according to Barr's letter.

WHO'S BEEN CHARGED BY MUELLER IN THE RUSSIA PROBE?

Mueller "recognized" that the lack of evidence that Trump was involved in collusion would undercut any obstruction case -- which would depend on showing a corrupt intent by the president. The investigation stated that "while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him."

Mueller's office handed over the responsibility of determining "whether the conduct described in the report constitutes a crime" to the attorney general's office.

Russian efforts to influence election

The investigation found that "there were two main Russian efforts to influence the 2016 election," Barr's letter stated. The attempts stemmed from a Russian organization and the Russian government.

The first attempt to interfere in the election was by the Russian group, the Internet Research Agency (IRA), "to conduct disinformation and social media operations in the United States designed to sow social discord, eventually with the aim of interfering with the election."

In addition, the special counsel's office found that the Russian government tried to "conduct computer hacking operations designed to gather and disseminate information to influence the election."

Investigators determined that "Russian government actors successfully hacked into computers and obtained emails from persons affiliated with the Clinton campaign and Democratic Party organizations, and publicly disseminated those materials through various intermediaries, including WikiLeaks."

In total, 26 Russian nationals and three Russian companies have been charged in connection to the investigation.

Mueller referred "other ongoing matters" to other federal offices

Barr said that the special counsel's office referred "other ongoing matters" to "other offices" in Washington, D.C., "for further action," although Mueller did not recommend further indictments. Barr added that the timeline for processing the report "depends in part on how quickly the Department can identify" information that can't be released to the public legally, before he determines what can go public.

Thousands of subpoenas issued during investigation

Mueller's office "issued more than 2,800 subpoenas" and executed nearly 500 search warrants throughout the duration of the investigation, which lasted close to two years.

The office also "obtained more than 230 orders for communication records, issued almost 50 orders authorizing use of pen registers, made 13 requests to foreign governments for evidence, and interviewed approximately 500 witnesses" during the probe.

March 24, 2019

Luke Maye poured in 20 points as top-seeded North Carolina defeated ninth-seeded Washington 81-59 in the NCAA Tournament’s second round Sunday afternoon at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.

The Tar Heels were in control for most of the Midwest Region game, with freshmen Nassir Little’s 20 points and Coby White’s 17 points also providing a lift.

North Carolina (29-6) will face fifth-seeded Auburn in the Sweet 16 on Friday night in Kansas City, Mo. The Tar Heels are back in the Sweet 16 after losing in the second round last year. They were in national championship games in 2016 and 2017, and they’re on a quest for a second title in three years.

Jaylen Nowell scored 12 points, while Noah Dickerson and Nahziah Carter each posted 10 points for ninth-seeded Washington (27-9), which was hurt by 4-for-10 shooting on free throws.

North Carolina made nine of 21 shots from 3-point range as part of 50.8 percent shooting overall. Washington figured to need to have an edge in perimeter scoring if it was to pull an upset, but the Huskies shot 9 for 29 from long range.

Maye, a senior, also had 14 rebounds, while Cameron Johnson added 13 points.

The Tar Heels finished with a rebounding advantage of 44-18.

North Carolina held a 51-36 edge less than five minutes into the second half.

North Carolina held a 41-33 halftime lead, but the Tar Heels had concerns about forward Garrison Brooks. He required stitches after he was struck in the mouth, with tooth damage also among the fallout even though he was back for the start of the second half.

Maye and White, who made four first-half 3-pointers, combined for 25 of North Carolina’s first-half points.

Bolstered by an early 11-2 run North Carolina led by as many as 14 points in the first half.

North Carolina is 3-0 all-time against the Huskies.

Dems See Opening to Continue Probe on Obstruction of Justice

Democrats are jumping on Attorney General William Barr's summary of the Mueller report in a letter to Congress that its findings were inconclusive on whether President Donald Trump obstructed justice as justification to proceed with their own investigation, Politico reported Sunday.

"This letter leaves more questions than answers; a sanitized summary from Trump's handpicked bodyguard is not acceptable," Rep. Bill Pascrell, D-N.J., said. "Barr has his finger on the scale to protect Trump. The full report should be released immediately."

His Democratic colleague in the House, Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., added "according to the Attorney General's letter, he described a pattern of evidence suggesting the president engaged in obstruction of justice," Politico reported

Barr wrote in his letter to the Congress that "The report sets out evidence on both sides of the question and leaves unresolved what the special counsel views as 'difficult issues' of law and fact concerning whether the president's actions and intent could be viewed as obstruction."

Barr added Mueller stated in his final report that "while this report does not conclude that the president committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him."

2020 Democrats demand Mueller report go public in its entirety after key findings released

Many of the Democrats running for president in 2020 responded to the release of key findings in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation Sunday by saying his report should go public in its entirety.

The findings, detailed in a letter from Attorney General William Barr, indicated that Mueller did not establish evidence President Trump's team or any associates of the Trump campaign had conspired with Russia to sway the 2016 election, and did not establish a conclusion on whether the president had obstructed justice.

READ THE FULL LETTER

Democrats who reacted after the release of the Mueller report's summary included Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and Sen. Kamala Harris of California.

Warren tweeted: “Congress voted 420-0 to release the full Mueller report. Not a "summary" from his handpicked Attorney General. AG Barr, make the full report public. Immediately.”

Booker tweeted: “The American public deserves the full report and findings from the Mueller investigation immediately—not just the in-house summary from a Trump Administration official.”

Gillibrand tweeted: “The Mueller report must be made public. Not just a letter from someone appointed by Trump to protect himself—all of it. The President works for the people, and he is not above the law.”

Harris tweeted: “The Mueller report needs to be made public, the underlying investigative materials should be handed over to Congress, and Barr must testify. That is what transparency looks like. A short letter from Trump's hand-picked Attorney General is not sufficient.”

Harris sends signal to Biden on 2020: Every era has its end

California Sen. Kamala Harris sent a signal to the old guard of Democratic politics that every era has its end.

At an Atlanta church service Sunday, the presidential candidate compared leadership to a relay race in which each generation must ask themselves "what do we do during that period of time when we carry that baton."

Then she added with a smile that for "the older leaders, it also becomes a question of let's also know when to pass the baton."

At 54 years old, Harris is one of the younger contenders for the White House in 2020. While former Vice President Joe Biden has not said whether he will run, both the 76-year-old and 77-year-old Bernie Sanders have previously run for the White House and fallen short.

Biden and Sanders are seen as strong contenders for the Democratic nomination, though other candidates and some voters have emphasized the need for a more youthful approach to try and beat President Donald Trump in the general election. Several other candidates in the race, including two governor, are also in their late sixties.

Other highlights of Sunday campaigning:

KIRSTEN GILLIBRAND

Democratic presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand assailed President Donald Trump as a coward who is "tearing apart the moral fabric of the vulnerable," as she officially started her campaign for president.

The senator spoke in New York Sunday, feet away from one of Trump's signature properties, the Trump International Hotel and Tower.

She said that instead of building walls as Trump wants to do along the U.S.-Mexico border, Americans build bridges, community and hope.

Gillibrand also called for full release of special counsel Robert Mueller's report in the Russia investigation. Attorney General William Barr released a summary Sunday afternoon, but Democrats want to see the full details.

Gillibrand is trying to position herself in the crowded field of Democrats seeking the party's nomination. While some hopefuls have shied away from mentioning Trump, Gillibrand has not hesitated to do so.

ELIZABETH WARREN

Sen. Elizabeth Warren said Sunday the National Rifle Association is holding "Congress hostage" when it comes to stemming gun violence.

The Massachusetts senator and Democratic presidential candidate tells a campaign rally that if seven children were dying from a mysterious virus, "we'd pull out all the stops till we figured out what was wrong." But in terms of gun violence, she said the NRA "keeps calling the shots in Washington."

Warren finished a two-day campaign trip to New Hampshire with an event at a middle school in Conway Sunday afternoon.

Warren focused much of her speech on her approach to economics, but paid special attention to unions Sunday. She said more power needs to be put back in the hands of workers.

BETO O'ROURKE

Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke told voters in Las Vegas Sunday that President Donald Trump bears blame for the separation of families at the U.S.-Mexico border but responsibility lies with everyone in the country to fix the situation.

O'Rourke spoke Sunday to more than 200 people packed into and snaking around a taco shop on the city's north end. He said immigrant families are leaving their home countries and journeying on foot because they have no other choice.

The former Texas congressman said desperate families were broken up in the U.S. when they were at their most vulnerable and desperate moments, and what happened to them "is on every single one of us."
