How the Mueller report has suddenly recast American civic life

President Donald Trump suggested Friday that the New York Times and Washington Post should have a joint Pulitzer Prize revoked after special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation concluded that Trump's campaign did not collude with Russian Federation to undermine the 2016 presidential election.

A redacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller's report on the Russian Federation investigation will be sent to Congress by mid-April and will not be shared with the White House beforehand, Attorney General William Barr said Friday.

Asked about Barr's commitment to release a redacted version of Mueller's report, Trump said he has "a lot of confidence" in Barr "and if that's what he'd like to do, I have nothing to hide".

Said De Niro's Mueller: "On the charge of obstruction of justice, we have not drawn a definitive conclusion".

While 40% did think Barr's summary exonerated the president and another 31% said they were unsure whether Trump has been cleared.

Trump Jr. also admitted during his interview on Media Buzz that his father's tweets can sometimes be problematic for the White House agenda, but claimed to empathize having sent out out tweets that he now regrets.

"Sean Hannity has read it and he's so excited he texted me an eggplant", Baldwin's Trump said.


Rudy Giuliani appeared briefly as well, with Kate McKinnon reprising the role, explaining that his "mind games worked".

As Mueller signs off, Barr signs off "guy who has been here one month", and Trump signs "sincerely president invincible hashtag 10 more years hashtag president Roosevelt but with legs".

We'll have to see if this was De Niro's last appearance on the show as Mueller, now that the report has wrapped up in real life. "It was going to be Mueller Time baby".

As for conspiracy or collusion, he added: "There were several questionable incidences involving the president's team, but we can not prove a criminal connection".

That initiative is sure to spark a new battle in Washington as a five-member Democratic congressional delegation visiting El Salvador, including Rep. Eliot Engel of NY, chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, returns to the capital.

"I think there were some people that tried to actually be fair - when they were actually fair you'd see the other side just try to just obliterate them, right, even their own following".
