Following Attorney General William Barr’s press conference this morning, a redacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report has been released to the public. The 448-page report is split into two volumes. The first volume outlines allegations regarding conspiracy and the second relates to accusations of obstruction of justice.

The report seemingly clears President Trump and his 2016 campaign of conspiring with Russia to interfere with the election. The report concluded that “although the Campaign expected it would benefit electorally from information stolen and released through Russian efforts, the investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.”

Several Democrats and critics of President Trump have accused the president of attempting to obstruct justice throughout the investigation. However, most these accusations center around the president’s firing of executive branch employees and his public statements on Twitter. Even staunch critics of President Trump, such as former Harvard Law professor Alan Derhsowitz, have stated that it is absurd to suggest the President of the United States could obstruct justice by simply exercising his authority under Article 2 of the Constitution.

Further complicating accusations of obstruction of justice is the fact that the president’s 2016 campaign was cleared of conspiring with Russia to influence the election. Although, considering many in the media seemed to be expecting a more damning report from the Special Counsel’s investigation, perhaps their reactions are not too surprising. According to the Associated Press, CNN and MSNBC’s ratings are dropping as Fox News’ climb. As long as the anchors and pundits of network news are unwilling to walk back some of their more colorful accusations about the investigation, it seems likely Fox News will continue to pick up viewers from the other outlets ahead of the 2020 election.
