President Trump tweeted this morning right before the press conference by Attorney General William Barr referencing the Mueller Report:
“The Greatest Political Hoax of all time!”
Attorney General William Barr’s press conference later this morning is proving that President Trump has been right all along.
“We now know that the Russian operatives who perpetrated these schemes” did not cooperate with Trump campaign officials.”
“The special counsel found no evidence that any American including anyone associated with the Trump campaign conspired with the Russian government or the IRA (Internet Research Agency)…Put another way; the special counsel found no collusion by any American.”
"So that's the bottom line. After nearly two years of investigation, thousands of subpoenas, hundreds of warrants and witness interviews, the special counsel confirmed — the Trump campaign nor any other Americans colluded," with the Russians.

Attorney General William Barr: “We now know that the Russian operatives who perpetrated these schemes did not have the cooperation of President Trump or the Trump campaign — or the knowing assistance of any other American for that matter.”

Barr started his press conference around 9:30 a.m. He told the media gathered that the report would be made available at 11 a.m. to the chairs and ranking members of the House and Senate Judiciary Committee.
Barr took a few questions from the media who promptly accused him of favoritism towards the president. It was just another embarrassing moment for the leftist media. This one moment is especially embarrassing to one reporter:
For anyone who watched this live, this was definitely a “Hold my beer” moment. Barr came right back at the reporter who said he was “generous” to President Trump:
My favorite part of Barr presser:
Journalist: You are being generous to @POTUS by saying he faced an “unprecedented” situation Barr: Is there a precedent?
Barr: “Hold my beer.” (This may not be an exact quote.”)
