UPDATE: Video and Transcript Added

[Transcript of prepared remarks] Good Morning. Thank you all for being here today.

On March 22, 2019, Special Counsel Robert Mueller concluded his investigation of matters related to Russian attempts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election and submitted his confidential report to me pursuant to Department of Justice regulations.

As I said during my Senate confirmation hearing and since, I am committed to ensuring the greatest possible degree of transparency concerning the Special Counsel’s investigation, consistent with the law.

At 11:00 this morning, I will transmit copies of a public version of the Special Counsel’s report to the Chairmen and Ranking Members of the House and Senate Judiciary Committees. The Department of Justice will also make the report available to the American public by posting it on the Department’s website after it has been delivered to Congress.

I would like to offer a few comments today on the report.

But before I do that, I want to thank Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein for joining me here today and for his assistance and counsel throughout this process. Rod has served the Department of Justice for many years with dedication and distinction, and it has been a great privilege and pleasure to work with him since my confirmation. He had well-deserved plans to step back from public service that I interrupted by asking him to help in my transition. Rod has been an invaluable partner, and I am grateful that he was willing to help me and has been able to see the Special Counsel’s investigation to its conclusion. Thank you, Rod.

I would also like to thank Special Counsel Mueller for his service and the thoroughness of his investigation, particularly his work exposing the nature of Russia’s attempts to interfere in our electoral process.

As you know, one of the primary purposes of the Special Counsel’s investigation was to determine whether members of the presidential campaign of Donald J. Trump, or any individuals associated with that campaign, conspired or coordinated with the Russian government to interfere in the 2016 election.

Volume I of the Special Counsel’s report describes the results of that investigation. As you will see, the Special Counsel’s report states that his “investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.”

I am sure that all Americans share my concerns about the efforts of the Russian government to interfere in our presidential election. As the Special Counsel’s report makes clear, the Russian government sought to interfere in our election. But thanks to the Special Counsel’s thorough investigation, 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 Americans for that matter. That is something that all Americans can and should be grateful to have confirmed.

The Special Counsel’s report outlines two main efforts by the Russian government to influence the 2016 election:

First, the report details efforts by the Internet Research Agency, a Russian company with close ties to the Russian government, to sow social discord among American voters through disinformation and social media operations.

Following a thorough investigation of this disinformation campaign, the Special Counsel brought charges in federal court against several Russian nationals and entities for their respective roles in this scheme. Those charges remain pending, and the individual defendants remain at large.

But the Special Counsel found no evidence that any Americans – including anyone associated with the Trump campaign – conspired or coordinated with the Russian government or the IRA in carrying out this illegal scheme.

Indeed, as the report states, “[t]he investigation did not identify evidence that any U.S. persons knowingly or intentionally coordinated with the IRA’s interference operation.” Put another way, the Special Counsel found no “collusion” by any Americans in the IRA’s illegal activity.

Second, the report details efforts by Russian military officials associated with the GRU to hack into computers and steal documents and emails from individuals affiliated with the Democratic Party and the presidential campaign of Hillary Rodham Clinton for the purpose of eventually publicizing those emails. Obtaining such unauthorized access into computers is a federal crime.

Following a thorough investigation of these hacking operations, the Special Counsel brought charges in federal court against several Russian military officers for their respective roles in these illegal hacking activities. Those charges are still pending and the defendants remain at large.

But again, the Special Counsel’s report did not find any evidence that members of the Trump campaign or anyone associated with the campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its hacking operations. In other words, there was no evidence of Trump campaign “collusion” with the Russian government’s hacking.

The Special Counsel’s investigation also examined Russian efforts to publish stolen emails and documents on the internet. The Special Counsel found that, after the GRU disseminated some of the stolen materials through its own controlled entities, DCLeaks and Guccifer 2.0, the GRU transferred some of the stolen materials to Wikileaks for publication. Wikileaks then made a series of document dumps.

The Special Counsel also investigated whether any member or affiliate of the Trump campaign encouraged or otherwise played a role in these dissemination efforts. Under applicable law, publication of these types of materials would not be criminal unless the publisher also participated in the underlying hacking conspiracy. Here too, the Special Counsel’s report did not find that any person associated with the Trump campaign illegally participated in the dissemination of the materials.

Finally, the Special Counsel investigated a number of “links” or “contacts” between Trump Campaign officials and individuals connected with the Russian government during the 2016 presidential campaign. After reviewing those contacts, the Special Counsel did not find any conspiracy to violate U.S. law involving Russia-linked persons and any persons associated with the Trump campaign.

So that is the bottom line. After nearly two years of investigation, thousands of subpoenas, and hundreds of warrants and witness interviews, the Special Counsel confirmed that the Russian government sponsored efforts to illegally interfere with the 2016 presidential election but did not find that the Trump campaign or other Americans colluded in those schemes.

After finding no underlying collusion with Russia, the Special Counsel’s report goes on to consider whether certain actions of the President could amount to obstruction of the Special Counsel’s investigation. As I addressed in my March 24th letter, the Special Counsel did not make a traditional prosecutorial judgment regarding this allegation. Instead, the report recounts ten episodes involving the President and discusses potential legal theories for connecting these actions to elements of an obstruction offense.

After carefully reviewing the facts and legal theories outlined in the report, and in consultation with the Office of Legal Counsel and other Department lawyers, the Deputy Attorney General and I concluded that the evidence developed by the Special Counsel is not sufficient to establish that the President committed an obstruction-of-justice offense.

Although the Deputy Attorney General and I disagreed with some of the Special Counsel’s legal theories and felt that some of the episodes examined did not amount to obstruction as a matter of law, we did not rely solely on that in making our decision. Instead, we accepted the Special Counsel’s legal framework for purposes of our analysis and evaluated the evidence as presented by the Special Counsel in reaching our conclusion.

In assessing the President’s actions discussed in the report, it is important to bear in mind the context. President Trump faced an unprecedented situation. As he entered into office, and sought to perform his responsibilities as President, federal agents and prosecutors were scrutinizing his conduct before and after taking office, and the conduct of some of his associates. At the same time, there was relentless speculation in the news media about the President’s personal culpability.

Yet, as he said from the beginning, there was in fact no collusion. And as the Special Counsel’s report acknowledges, there is substantial evidence to show that the President was frustrated and angered by a sincere belief that the investigation was undermining his presidency, propelled by his political opponents, and fueled by illegal leaks.

Nonetheless, the White House fully cooperated with the Special Counsel’s investigation, providing unfettered access to campaign and White House documents, directing senior aides to testify freely, and asserting no privilege claims. And at the same time, the President took no act that in fact deprived the Special Counsel of the documents and witnesses necessary to complete his investigation. Apart from whether the acts were obstructive, this evidence of non-corrupt motives weighs heavily against any allegation that the President had a corrupt intent to obstruct the investigation.

Now, before I take questions, I want to address a few aspects of the process for producing the public report that I am releasing today. As I said several times, the report contains limited redactions relating to four categories of information. To ensure as much transparency as possible, these redactions have been clearly labelled and color-coded so that readers can tell which redactions correspond to which categories.

As you will see, most of the redactions were compelled by the need to prevent harm to ongoing matters and to comply with court orders prohibiting the public disclosure of information bearing upon ongoing investigations and criminal cases, such as the IRA case and the Roger Stone case.

These redactions were applied by Department of Justice attorneys working closely together with attorneys from the Special Counsel’s Office, as well as with the intelligence community, and prosecutors who are handling ongoing cases. The redactions are their work product.

Consistent with long-standing Executive Branch practice, the decision whether to assert Executive privilege over any portion of the report rested with the President of the United States. Because the White House voluntarily cooperated with the Special Counsel’s investigation, significant portions of the report contain material over which the President could have asserted privilege. And he would have been well within his rights to do so.

Following my March 29th letter, the Office of the White House Counsel requested the opportunity to review the redacted version of the report in order to advise the President on the potential invocation of privilege, which is consistent with long-standing practice. Following that review, the President confirmed that, in the interests of transparency and full disclosure to the American people, he would not assert privilege over the Special Counsel’s report. Accordingly, the public report I am releasing today contains redactions only for the four categories that I previously outlined, and no material has been redacted based on executive privilege.

In addition, earlier this week, the President’s personal counsel requested and were given the opportunity to read a final version of the redacted report before it was publicly released. That request was consistent with the practice followed under the Ethics in Government Act, which permitted individuals named in a report prepared by an Independent Counsel the opportunity to read the report before publication. The President’s personal lawyers were not permitted to make, and did not request, any redactions.

In addition to making the redacted report public, we are also committed to working with Congress to accommodate their legitimate oversight interests with respect to the Special Counsel’s investigation. We have been consulting with Chairman Graham and Chairman Nadler throughout this process, and we will continue to do so.

Given the limited nature of the redactions, I believe that the publicly released report will allow every American to understand the results of the Special Counsel’s investigation. Nevertheless, in an effort to accommodate congressional requests, we will make available to a bipartisan group of leaders from several Congressional committees a version of the report with all redactions removed except those relating to grand-jury information. Thus, these members of Congress will be able to see all of the redacted material for themselves – with the limited exception of that which, by law, cannot be shared.

I believe that this accommodation, together with my upcoming testimony before the Senate and House Judiciary Committees, will satisfy any need Congress has for information regarding the Special Counsel’s investigation.

Once again, I would like to thank you all for being here today. I now have a few minutes for questions.

      He is still trying to diffuse the entire situation. He put it in the democrats court to respond as well as public opinion to digest. By the time the ig report comes out if the democrats are still trying to bring the executive branch down… including him… then I suspect (hope) he takes the gloves off.

      Poor POTUS has to sit tight while this digestion occurs… probably for another thirty to sixty days. And that is not in his nature. The only way to bring justice to the cabal is to indict and take the investigation where ever the facts lead… which will create a constitutional crisis which is long overdue.

Barr deadpanning will force Mueller and Weissman to own their report- especially Weissman’s wacky legal basis for obstruction. Will the Dems actually be dumb enough to subpoena Mueller? Will the Dems be dumb enough to claim obstruction as Napalitano thinks? The more transparency Barr delivers the sooner we see real justice.

      Rosen was wearing a mask. He looked like the proverbial deer caught in the headlights – through the entire address. Looks to me as though his presence had been “persuaded”, i.e., a get out of jail card for Rosie and the whole insider coup cabal. He had to stand there quietly, eyes staring straight ahead – he only broke the stare a couple of times when Barr broached topics that skirted the edge of leaks and a couple of other examples to which he alluded.

      However: “No Americans…..NO AMERICANS INVOLVED in Russian collusion (activity)…2016 election”. DOJ position: Everyone walks. The Institutions are preserved.

      Now they have passed the ball to the House Dems to fully take over the torch: find a way to remove President Trump from Office, and/or defeat him in 2020 with endless false allegations. As far as the DOJ is concerned, leave HRC, DOJ, FBI, & the Entire Cabal Co. alone. “NO AMERICAN COLLUDED…..IN THE 2016 ELECTION…” The traitorous conspirators are free to go.

      AG Barr is working to have it both ways.

        While it is vomit-inducting to hear Barr emphasize that no Americans colluded with Russia, I am going to cling to the hope that he is speaking to the conclusions he can draw on what is in the Weismann Report- oops, I mean ‘Mueller’ Report-silly me. On that score, I’m going to go out on a limb and assume that Weissman (damn, did it again) and his henchmen failed to include that section entitled “How Hillary, Obama, the FBI and DOJ Colluded – including with Russians -to Take Down Trump”, so Barr has no alternative at this point but to agree with the reports’ s conclusions that NO Americans were in involved in colluding with Russians.
        Now of course if he starts investigating, and finds evidence to the contrary, he could always hold another press conference, couldn’t he;)?

        There is little doubt, in my mind at least, that it won’t stop there. One piece at a time. And, as you lay out, if people want to continue on this path they do so without any cover or evidence from the Mueller SC report. Then they also take on the risk of being even more exposed when the origins of the investigation are shown to be contrived.

      Seems to me the long investigation was to the financial benefit of all those who ‘worked’ on it and to maximize the chance that in sheer frustration, that PDJT might do or say something that could be interpreted as obstruction. Dragging things out also served to try to impede PDJT from doing all that he wanted to do. The potential cloud over his administration hampered their interactions with other nations.

      3) if Trump campaign colluding with Russian national to get dirt on Hillary (not even a Russian gov official so not specifically “Russia” as a whole but someone who was Russian) was going to “prove” collusion/conspiracy then Why, WHY isn’t it the exact same charge for Hillary/DNC when we Know that they obtained and paid for dirt on President Trump from Russian sources?!!!

      When will will Hillary/DNC be held to the exact same scrunity and standard as President Trump’s campaign?

      The Mueller report concludes that a) Russian interferene 100% happened and b) Presidient Trump’s campaign did not participate and no other American’s knowingly participated.

      DNC/Hillary KNOWINGLY set up a meeting for Trump campaign with a Russian national for entrapment!

    Now, further investigations are necessary and Barr has already stated that he has started. If you want to have anxiety about that, I get it.

      I agree. At first I thought to myself, “Why all this President Trump, no collusion, President Trump, no this, PTrump no that.” Then I got it. Drive that home! Bang that into those block heads over and over. Like it. And now, I’m ready to see the redacted category(ies) that deal with ongoing investigations and grand jury activities. Great report/press conference.

    Did anyone catch that smirk of Rosenstein when Barr answered a question and stated that Mueller was free to testify if called to do so.

    The press are totally out of control. Hard to believe that Barr has to explain that they convene grand juries to determine “yes” or “no” regarding presence of a crime – not to turn over every stone they can find, looking for a crime.

    The press = ignoramus babies.

    How can there be any “obstruction” of Mueller when Trump did not exercise Executive Privilege— at all — during Mueller’s activities, and over anything in tne Report?

    Barr made it clear that the personal descritions he gave of the POTUS are in the Mueller report as well and not just his words.

    Barr is like Pompeo. You simply cannot mess with these guys. 🙂 The propaganda media looked like emotional toddlers. 🙂

    I’m watching NBC, they are forced to admit Trump has been exonerated. They didn’t use that word though, they said “clean bill of health”. Haha. Chuck Todd is clearly flustered. He doesn’t know how to engage the old narrative after this fact-full unemotional press conference. 🙂

    If “no Americans” were involved with collusion doesn’t that ALSO exonerate any of Hillary’s people who were part of setting up the whole scam, which DID involve some Russians?

    I wonder if these media rats even realize how obvious are their efforts to get a sound bite which they can use to insinuate something about our President, or are they oblivious to the fact that WE CAN SEE THEM.

    (Rosenstein’s face went solid red by the end, he was blushing!)

      Well, no American that Mule and co investigated. We all know they didn’t investigate the origins of the dossier just based on what we DO know about it already.

      When the Dimms set up the whole fake dossier and fraudulent applications schemes to the FISA court, that was illegal, but they were not colluding with the Russians to make this happen. Therefore, no collusion.

        Oh, I don’t think they colluded with Russians per se, but I would be willing to bet you a cookie that they WERE colluding with other foreign governments. Ostensibly our “allies”, but if those are allies, give me enemies instead. At least you KNOW your enemies.

        Keep in mind that it wasn’t just the dim bulbs who did this. At least not just the elected ones. We have the whole freaking set of alphabets agencies thrown in there. There are worse things than collusion, and I hope it can been proven they are guilty of it.

    And there you have it….

    Seems like Barr downplayed the report a bit.

    Now, maybe the doldrums while we wait for a hopeful shoe to drop.

    I think Barr got a taste of what the President deals with everyday from the children of the corn…I mean press…Can’t wait for part 2…..The illegal spying activity indictments. Tired of waiting but it will be worth the wait for sure.
