President Trump tweeted 8 times, only to delete two of those tweets to re-issue them.
1. Robert Mueller would have brought charges, if he had ANYTHING, but there were no charges to bring!
The Greatest Presidential Harassment in history. After spending $40,000,000 over two dark years, with unlimited access, people, resources and cooperation, highly conflicted Robert Mueller would have brought charges, if he had ANYTHING, but there were no charges to bring!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 30, 2019
2. And now Russia has disappeared because I had nothing to do with Russia helping me to get elected.
Russia, Russia, Russia! That’s all you heard at the beginning of this Witch Hunt Hoax…And now Russia has disappeared because I had nothing to do with Russia helping me to get elected. It was a crime that didn’t exist. So now the Dems and their partner, the Fake News Media,…..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 30, 2019
3. Could this be Obstruction? [Why yes, yes it could be].
….say he fought back against this phony crime that didn’t exist, this horrendous false accusation, and he shouldn’t fight back, he should just sit back and take it. Could this be Obstruction? No, Mueller didn’t find Obstruction either. Presidential Harassment!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 30, 2019
Authors note: I placed the wrong screen grabs the image below is the deleted thread. I apologize for the error.
4. Quoted Rep. John Ratcliffee (R-TX) via Fox News.
Congressman John Ratcliffe, “The Trump Campaign clearly did not conspire or collude.” @FoxNews— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 30, 2019
5. Quoted Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade.
“Comey and Brennan are turning on each other.” @kilmeade— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 30, 2019
6. A total Conflict of Interest. NICE!
Robert Mueller came to the Oval Office (along with other potential candidates) seeking to be named the Director of the FBI. He had already been in that position for 12 years, I told him NO. The next day he was named Special Counsel – A total Conflict of Interest. NICE!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 30, 2019
7. Senator Thad Cochran…
Very sad to hear the news on the passing of my friend, Senator Thad Cochran. He was a real Senator with incredible values – even flew back to Senate from Mississippi for important Healthcare Vote when he was desperately ill. Thad never let our Country (or me) down!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 30, 2019

9. They want good ratings!
Just arrived in Colorado. Getting ready to deliver the commencement speech at the Air Force Academy graduation. Very exciting – probably will be broadcast live on TV. They want good ratings!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 30, 2019

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Report.
Introduction to Volume II. pg. 1 PDF pg. 213.
As the News Blender reported on Wednesday Special Counsel Robert Mueller offered his first public statement since he was appointed Special Counsel in May of 2017.
In the below clip Mueller explains that “charging the President with a crime therefore not an option we could consider.”
The key line that will be played over and over.— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) May 29, 2019
Robert Mueller: “As set forth in the report, after that investigation, if we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so.”

Mueller Report regarding Russian interference with the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election.
Introduction to Volume 1. pg 1 PDF pg. 9.
First, a Russian entity carried out a social media campaign that favored presidential candidate Donald J. Trump and disparaged presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
Second, a Russian intelligence service conducted computer-intrusion operations against entities, employees, and volunteers working on the Clinton Campaign and then released stolen documents.
Although the investigation established that the Russian government perceived it would benefit from a Trump presidency and worked to secure that outcome, and that the Campaign expected it would benefit electorally from information stolen and released through Russian efforts, the investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.
In Mueller’s own words regarding Russia’s interference from Wednesday.

Special counsel Robert Mueller: “I will close by reiterating the central allegation of our indictments — that there were multiple, systematic efforts to interfere in our election and that allegation deserves the attention of every American” https://t.co/xP04w69GH0 pic.twitter.com/DmC9eOiXXs— ABC News Politics (@ABCPolitics) May 29, 2019
Less than an hour after President Trump tweeted “I had nothing to do with Russia helping me to get elected,” when asked by a reporter about his statement via Twitter, he said, “No, Russia did not help me get elected. You know who got me elected? I got me elected. Russia didn’t help me at all. Russia, if anything, I think helped the other side,” he added, “What you ought ask yourself is this, you think the media helped Hillary Clinton get elected. She didn’t make it, but you take a look at collusion between Hillary Clinton and the media.” [he said all that in the first 26 seconds of the clip].
Trump flatly denies a tweet he posted just an hour earlier, now claims “Russia did not help me get elected.” pic.twitter.com/vao8kFQcZQ— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) May 30, 2019
In early January of 2017 the Intelligence Community issued a report regarding the Russian interference with the U.S. Presidential Election of 2016.
The IC assessment was “Putin, his advisers, and the Russian Government developed a clear preference for President-elect Trump over Secretary Clinton.”
Robert Mueller came to the Oval Office (along with other potential candidates) seeking to be named the Director of the FBI.
From the Mueller Report Volume 2 pg. 80-81 PDF pg. 292-293.
According to Mueller’s Report, Steve Bannon former President Trump White House adviser, told investigators regarding the FBI Director job, that as Bannon recalled “although the White House thought about beseeching Mueller to become Director again,” Mueller, “did not come in looking for the job.”
CNN reports that longtime Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran has died. He was 81 years old.
In April of 2018 Cochran resigned his senate seat due to his poor health.
The cause of death was not provided by Chris Gallegos a former spokesman who worked for Cochran, who made the announcement.
