In the report, special counsel Robert Mueller outlined why obstruction by President Trump failed. It failed because others refused to "carry out orders."

CNN- Pants on fire...
Mueller comments most of the "obstruction" evidence was in public comments ("witch hunt," etc.) and not private acts. Trump told Sessions he just wanted to be treated "fairly" which is not obstruction. Trump had every reason to believe he wouldn't get fair treatment. With the press, the leaks, the texts suggesting conspiracy to undermine his candidacy and presidency, it makes sense he lacked faith in the process and the people investigating.
There were a few times Trump asked people to do things (releasing a statement the campaign didn't promise things to Russia) but they didn't do them and it looks like he dropped the issues. Even when the angry Trump demanded him to resign, Sessions even offered his resignation, but Trump changed his mind.
Again and again he's asking for fairness, he's concerned for the legitimacy of his presidency and ability to do the job. Executive privilege was not asserted, Mueller had access to anything he wanted. That is NOT obstruction.
It’s amazing. The press has lied for 2 years now about this and they continue to lie. It’s not just putting out lies but it is more and more evident that this was a concerted effort of a coup. These people need to be on trial for sedition and treason!
Theyre crapping their duds over the fact that an investigation will be opened against Obama administration and they must do everything to stop it.

The Mueller report says then-White House chief of staff Reince Priebus first learned about the Trump Tower meeting between Russians and senior campaign officials in late June 2017 from Fox News host Sean Hannity
Mindless and groundless fabrication of a charge out of whole cloth!
Yup-That’s what it is!
These guys are misplaced Hollywood script writers. Dream it up, print it up, throw it up... voila.. It’s REAL!!!
Trump OBSTRUCTED THE CAREFULLY PLANNED COUP by not taking the bait where he could be charged with obstruction of justice for a non-crime that didn’t happen.
Not in their eyes and they will continue to spin their lies into truths like a black widow spinning its web.
“orders?”...exactly what ORDERS were given to fire people.
Through President Trump’s TWEETS?
If he wanted those people fired HE WOULD HAVE DONE IT.
Our President is no shrinking violet.
There was obstruction.....of Trump’s Presidency!
There was obstruction.....of Trumps Presidency!
Trump has the power to fire Mueller so how is that obstruction? Trump had no expectation that firing Mueller would end the investigation so if it would not be ended where is the attempted obstruction? Mueller ultimately worked for Trump. And no one is saying the real reason why Trump wanted to fire Mueller and why he thought he was f_____ when Mueller was appointed Special Counsel. Mueller had just been rejected by Trump the previous day to fill the vacant Director of The FBI job and would probably be out for revenge against Trump.
As the noose tightens around CNN for its roll in Obstruction.
Theyre crapping their duds
This is really ambiguous. We ask questions daily and make suggestions daily about doing things only to learn that they may be of dubious legal nature. Meaningless. Clearly, lawmakers do not know what is legal as their laws are often overturned in court.
Figuratively, there was no bank heist (Russian collusion). So you can’t go after a guy for driving the getaway car.
“There was obstruction.....of Trumps Presidency!”
Best post of the day, and so true. It needs to be repeated over, and over, and over. $35 million, carte blanche, and they came up with nothing - because there never was anything to investigate - except Hillary, which they declined to do.
So we have an FBI Director illegally attaining FISA warrants to engage in surveillance of a Presidential candidate, while concurrently conducting a sham investigation in to Killary, persistently lying...and at the recommendation of the Deputy AG to be fired the POTUS is guilty of “obstruction” because he fired him....while the Muller investigation continues, which resulted in not finding any crime that started the investigation.
That is insane.
CNN is now ATT.
>>McGahn saved Trump by disobeying him.
Proves that he hires the best people.
