On Thursday, Attorney General Bill Barr brought the devastating news to the far Left and bias fake news media that President Trump did NOT collude with the Russian government and did NOT obstruct justice.
This news was a shock to the media, especially to Joe Scarborough on the Morning Joe who had an absolute meltdown.

It’s no surprise that Scarborough was enraged at Barr.
He’s been pushing conspiracy theories for the past two years and they have now been proven to be false. Check out what Talking Points Memo reported:
Former Republican congressman-turned cable news host Joe Scarborough savaged Attorney General William Barr on MSBNC’s “Morning Joe” on Thursday morning, less than an hour before Barr is scheduled to hold a press conference on the release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.
Scarborough called Barr a “political hack,” rather than a “respected legal mind” and warned journalists and Americans that Barr’s presser could likely devolve into another platform to “put forward a conspiracy theory to distract senators and Americans.”
He was referencing Barr’s admission during a hearing before the Senate Appropriations Committee that “spying” on the Trump campaign did occur.
“One thing we do know though is that the attorney general of the United States has forever sullied his reputation. Regardless of what people thought of attorney William Barr over the past 30 years his actions over the past months have been the actions of a political hack and not unfortunately a respected legal mind,” Scarborough stated.
“I do feel the need to warn journalists and warn Americans that we could see the attorney general this morning doing a followup to his testimony last week before the Senate where he actually put forward a conspiracy theory to try to distract the senators and Americans from actually looking at the report it,” he added.
“He could very well use this 9:30 press conference to talk about investigating the investigators. If that’s, in fact, what he does, he will be remembered as the sleaziest attorney general since John Mitchell, but that is a concern. And I hope reporters are alert to that fact, and those aren’t screaming headlines except on the most sadly pathetic pro-Trump websites.” he said.
During the press conference, Attorney General Barr announced, “After nearly two years of investigation, thousands of subpoenas, and hundreds of warrants and witness interviews, the special counsel confirmed that the Russian government sponsored efforts to illegally interfere with the 2016 presidential election but did not find that the Trump campaign or other Americans colluded in those schemes.”
“After reviewing those contacts, the special counsel did not find any conspiracy to violate U.S. law involving Russia-linked persons and any persons associated with the Trump campaign,” continued Barr.
Barr added: “So that is the bottom line.”
