Report: Trump said "My God. This is terrible. This is the end of my presidency. I'm f**ked."
The redacted version of the Mueller Report just officially released, after Attorney General William Barr gave a press conference designed to make President Trump look good.
Even though Mueller's Report states that Congress can potentially go after the president for 10 possible episodes of obstruction, which Mueller left for Barr to decide on, Barr says Trump was obviously "frustrated" and that's why he acted the way that he did.
Now - reporters are going over the hundreds of pages in search for more details, redaction's aside, and one little tidbit stands out so far.
According to notes from Jody Hunt, when Potus first learned of Mueller’s appointment, he said “Oh my God. This is terrible. This is the end of my Presidency. I’m f-----.”
MSNBC Chief Legal Correspondent Ari Melber confirmed the note.
See, it's things like this that make long, boring reports, not so boring after all.
What is this comment even about? Trump was afraid and while Mueller didn't decide to press charges on obstruction, Trump was worried that he would.
Even with the report finally released we may still find out more information when Robert Mueller testifies before Congress, which was asked of him to take place before the end of May. It could be sooner.
In the meantime, we're learning all kinds of new information throughout the course of the day. This might have been the most embarrassing one for Trump, though.
