Trump Blasts Some Statements About Him in Mueller Report as 'Total Bullsh*t'

A day after celebrating the Mueller report for finding “No Collusion – No Obstruction,” President Trump blasted certain parts of the 448-page document as “total bullsh*t.”

"Statements are made about me by certain people in the Crazy Mueller Report, in itself written by 18 Angry Democrat Trump Haters, which are fabricated & totally untrue,” he tweeted Friday morning. “Watch out for people that take so-called “notes,” when the notes never existed until needed. Because I never agreed to testify, it was not necessary for me to respond to statements made in the “Report” about me, some of which are total bullshit & only given to make the other person look good (or me to look bad). This was an Illegally Started Hoax that never should have happened…”

According to Axios, Trump was likely referring to the section in the report where he questioned why former White House counsel Don McGhan took notes during their conversations. 

  • According to details McGahn and others provided to the Mueller's team, Trump had instructed McGahn to contact Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to have Mueller fired. McGahn did not carry out Trump's order.
  • Refusals from McGahn — and other top White House staffers — to obey such presidential directives are part of the reason why Trump ultimately avoided obstruction of justice charges in Mueller's investigation.

The report found no collusion and did not implicate or exonerate the president on obstruction of justice charges. As Trump’s attorney Jay Sekulow noted, “the key there is that the attorney general and the deputy attorney general made the conclusion that you don't have obstruction when there's no underlying crime.”
