The Deep State Russia Hoax has finally been put to bed, thanks to a newly-released DOJ memo.
The Justice Department released a memo supporting former Attorney General William Barr’s decision not to pursue an obstruction of justice charge against former President Donald Trump following the release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.
My favorite sentence in the just released OLC memo sent to then-AG Bill Barr re: why Trump shouldn't be charged with obstruction based on the findings of the Mueller report

Former President Donald Trump hearlded the DOJ’s memo release that legally backed up then-Attorney General Barr’s decision not to slap obstruction of justice charges against President Donald Trump.
Trump released a statement to his Save America PAC in which he expressed total vindication after years of being maligned as a covert Russian agent.
“In the nine-page memo it was revealed that, ‘Nothing would warrant a prosecution for obstruction of justice,'” Trump said.
“It underscored that ‘Mueller had not found sufficient evidence to charge any underlying crime,’ and that the President ‘reasonably believed that the Special Counsel’s investigation was interfering with his governing agenda.'”
“The memo concluded that ‘the evidence was insufficient to support a criminal charge — even if Trump were not president,'” Trump added.
“It was stated that my ‘conduct primarily reflected a frustration with the Mueller probe and what [I] perceived to be the politics behind it,’ in addition to what I believed were absolutely flawed and Fake News reports. Sound familiar?”
Trump thanked CREW for successfully suing to release the memo and alluded to the recent FBI raid of his Florida residence in a separate matter.
“CREW is devastated by these findings, that they worked so hard to ‘expose,’ but may now move on to the even more ridiculous Witch Hunt that has already caused a great Mar-a-Lago Red Wave with the voters of our Nation!” Trump said in a statement.
CREW, however, is unhappy with their findings, saying in a Wednesday statement that AG Barr used the memo to “undermine” Mueller’s report.
“The memo significantly twists the facts and the law to benefit Donald Trump and does not comport with a serious reading of the law of obstruction of justice or the facts as found by Special Counsel Mueller.”
Mueller, in his report, said he could not establish a criminal conspiracy between Russia and the Trump campaign. He also outlined 10 instances of possible obstruction of justice, including a desire by Trump to fire Mueller, but did not reach any conclusions on them.
There’s a mini frenzy going on over this new DOJ memo from 2019, as though it reveals some sort of earth-shattering coverup. But as the memo says, there was no underlying crime for Trump to “cover up” with regard to “Russian interference.” Which was the whole point to begin with pic.twitter.com/0aUtPeVqwz

Before releasing Mueller’s report in April 2019, Barr said he and then-Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein concluded that there was not sufficient evidence to establish Trump committed an obstruction-of-justice offense.
Another Deep State plan to take down Trump was thwarted — BY THE LEFT!
It doesn’t get much better than that.
