MSNBC pulled out all the big wigs to cover this historic event. It's not the Super Bowl, as we're waiting on a heavily redacted doc, but it's def the equivalent of the political playoffs. The Super Bowl will occur when Congress gets the unredacted doc and Mueller testifies.

Given that Trump announced this press conference before DOJ did, it raises real questions about whether Trump ordered Barr to do it.

Chuck Rosenberg deciding that Barr is not a principled institutionalist is actually fairly newsworthy.

The Mueller Report comes out in 14 minutes. Fingers crossed there are actually words we can make out. Don’t fret— Congress has already called upon Robert Mueller to testify, so we have that to look forward to.

Barr said “no collusion” more times than I could count. Once again, collusion is not a crime; it’s a political term the media and Trump have latched onto.

Chris Wallace, chief political correspondent for Fox News, said AG Barr acted more like a defense attorney for the president than an independent Attorney General, as he should be. That’s really all that needs to be said about that. The redacted report will be released in 40min.

Barr comes off experienced and strong, but make no mistake: William Barr is a shill, a protector of President Trump. He’s supposed to be an independent, and he’s not. So let’s see that redacted report, buddy! Coming at 11am eastern.

The Grand Jury material could have been exposed had Barr simply made a request to a judge. He refused to even make the effort or to file the appropriate paperwork. Just FYI. There’s a lot in the report he could have worked to reveal, rather than remain redacted.

He says the redactions come from the four areas he already laid out before Congress. No other entities, including WH lawyers, had any say in the Mueller Report redactions. No executive privilege was exercised. Grand Jury testimony was redacted by law, he says—

Barr says the redactions of the Mueller Report are minimal. We shall see. He says no one outside their department has seen the report or been involved in the redactions. Rod Rosenstein is standing to the right of Barr.

Don’t get mad at me. I’m just the messenger. This press conference is going to be torn apart.

Barr has said “no collusion” at least twice. Because the President was upset about the investigation, as an innocent person who provided investigators with unlimited documents, this somehow makes him innocent of obstruction as well.

Barr is saying that because no Americans were directly involved in the hacking of US sites, nor were any member of the Trump campaign directly involved in the dissemination of hacked materials, he concludes there was no conspiracy, and specifically “no conclusion.”

Dear America, please don't blame a church in France because your government sucks and refuses to take care of its own people. That church has been there for 850 years and means many things to millions of people and has nothing to do with why your government is awful.
