“This is the end of my Presidency. I’m [REDACTED].”

It's another day in Trump's America—and another day to stand up for what's right. Get the facts to fight back.

Mueller’s damning case against Trump

“This is the end of my Presidency. I’m f-cked.” That’s what Trump said when he first heard a special counsel would be appointed, and today we got the first real look at why.

Mueller’s report shows clear obstruction of justice, abuse of power, and complicity in Russia’s attack on our democracy. It amounts to an impeachment referral to Congress—like the “roadmap” Watergate Special Prosecutor Leon Jaworski compiled detailing Nixon’s misdeeds.

Trump’s hand-picked attorney general tried to hide the truth. It’s time we see the full report and hear directly from Mueller himself.

We know that Barr severely mischaracterized Mueller’s findings. Here are a few glaring examples:

  • THE OBSTRUCTION WAS CONSTANT: Trump tried repeatedly to end the special counsel investigation. The only thing that stopped him from succeeding was that his aides refused to “carry out or accede to his requests.” In many, many other cases, they did follow the orders, and the evidence against Trump is overwhelming.
  • THERE WAS PLENTY OF COLLUSION: The tale of interactions between Trump, his associates, Wikileaks, and Russia is anything but exonerating. It’s practically a book unto itself. Stay tuned for more.
  • NO COOPERATION: Trump did not—contrary to Barr’s lies this morning—cooperate anywhere near fully with the investigation. But given what we know now, it’s no wonder Trump refused to testify.
