Trump Now Plans to Call for News Outlets to Fire Reporters, Pundits He Feels Made False Accusations Against Him

 
 
 
President Donald Trump wants vengeance now that special counsel Robert Mueller has turned in his report, which Attorney General William Barr says shows no evidence of conspiracy or obstruction.

The president is claiming the report exonerates him from allegations that his campaign colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 election, and now Trump wants to punish his enemies who reported on the nearly two-year investigation, reported Axios.

Trump called for an investigation of his critics and cast himself as a victim within an hour of learning Mueller’s findings.

“Aides say Trump plans to … call for organizations to fire members of the media and former government officials who he believes made false accusations about him,” the Washington Post reported.

Barr’s summary shows that Mueller did not find evidence that anyone in the Trump campaign or its associates conspired or coordinated with the Russian government, and Mueller wrote that he did not conclude Trump committed a crime, but he made clear his findings did not exonerate the president.

The report represents a huge political win for the president, who will use Mueller’s findings to cast doubt on investigations by House Democrats, and Trump’s allies are already calling for investigations of the investigators.
