Donald Trump held a joint press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to sign a proclamation that formally recognizes Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights while the consequences of the Mueller report continue.
Attorney General William Barr, a Trump ally chosen by the president, came to the conclusion that Trump had not colluded with Russia to win the 2016 presidential election after reading the report of FBI special adviser Robert Mueller, presented later the conclusion of a 22-month investigation into the prosecution.
In a four-page letter to Congress, Barr quoted Mr. Mueller in conceding: "While this report does not conclude that the president has committed a crime, he does not exonerate him."

"A number of actions" carried out by Trump could raise obstacles to the concerns of justice, thought Mr. Mueller, but Barr and his deputy, Rod Rosenstein, decided that these actions did not reveal "corrupt intentions".
A triumphant Trump was ready to greet the verdict as a "complete and total exemption", repeating his long attack on the "witch hunt" as "an illegal takedown that failed" – to the delight of Trump's loyalists – while the Democrats called for the full version of the Mueller report.

We have known for some time that Donald Trump deceived the public when John McCain distributed the infamous Steele dossier to the media, and that the late senator and war hero handed him over to the FBI, as he had previously confirmed.
A new report reveals that he went to his friend and colleague Lindsey Graham after receiving the dossier, which then encouraged him to deliver it to the federal agency.

Donald Trump and his associates made the round of the victory today after his attorney general published a four-page summary of the investigations of special adviser Robert Mueller on the Russian interference in the 2016 elections.

Trump's good day continues. Michael Avenatti, former lawyer for Stormy Daniels, was accused of extortion "for attempting to extract more than $ 20 million in payments from a publicly traded company threatening to use his ability to procure advertising to inflict substantial damage financial and reputational to the company if his requests were not met.

Democratic presidential hope Kirsten Gillibrand gave her first election speech – right outside the Trump Tower in New York!

Donald Trump refuses to answer questions on any other topic while signing his proclamation of the Golan Heights.
Netanyahu claims to have brought to the president a case on the "most beautiful wine" in the region (a lot of Withnail) but, since Mr. Trump doesn't drink, he will have to give it to his staff. "I hope they don't open an inquiry into us!"

Prime Minister Netanyahu says Israel has "never had a better friend" than Donald Trump – thanking him for his actions regarding the Iranian nuclear deal, transferring the US embassy to Jerusalem and now to recognize the heights of the Golan.
The territory was won by Israel in 1967, but is considered to be occupied by much of the international community.

Apparently "Woke Lindsey Graham" is now a thing among Trump supporters.
They love having him on the side, but don't forget that he once considered the president an "idiot" and was branded "not as brilliant as Rick Perry" for his trouble. His current trend is pure ambition on principle.
Only last August, Mr. Graham said he "doesn't see it anywhere" when the Donald insulted his old friend John McCain, making his reluctance to read the president's uprising last week when he repeatedly denigrated 39; hero of the second world war even more pitiful.

Senator Graham advises the president to focus on what will be next for the country.
As for the Democrats …
"We are not accusers," he says of his committee, asking if his expression of satisfaction with William Barr's verdict means that his team does not need to review Mueller's report alone.
This was his big move, transforming the tables of Clinton's campaign for revenge and for digging intrigues of Obama's era.

"Lawyers are not part of the business of exemption," says Barr and Rosenstein, who are not trying to obstruct the accusation of justice against Donald Trump.
Senator Graham insists that Robert Mueller's decision to pass judgment to the Ministry of Legal Affairs and the Department of Justice about the obstruction, "having explored both sides of the matter", was his decision .
