I can hardly believe anyone is still flailing this dead horse, but some Democrats have been pushing for a memo to be released that would reveal why then-Attorney General Bill Barr declined to prosecute President Trump for obstruction of the Russia Collusion investigation. They were certain it would show that he ignored advice to prosecute Trump.
Well, it’s finally out. It shows that the Office of Legal Counsel advised him against prosecuting Trump because, aside from the issues about whether you could prosecute a sitting President, there wasn’t enough evidence to prosecute him even if he weren’t President. So another cherished anti-Trump narrative goes up in smoke.
Personally, I’d think that all the evidence you’d need that Trump didn’t obstruct the investigation was that it dragged on for years, cost taxpayers $30 million and found absolutely nothing. It was based on partisan lies, falsified evidence and imaginations fired by the fever of Trump Derangement Syndrome. America would have been better off if it had been obstructed by an outbreak of common sense in DC, but that’s not likely to happen in our lifetimes.
