Mueller Report Details Conflicts With Trump & Barr Assessment

"...no collusion, no obstruction, complete and total exoneration," President Trump said following the release of the Mueller report - but the trouble is, like many of the things this President says, that is not accurate.  The Mueller Report actually says just the opposite: "...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. Accordingly, while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him."  Volume 2, page 8 (also referred to as page 220 in the full report under the subsection "conclusion".
