Abbreviated Pundit Round-up: Trump tried to collude and obstruct, and repeatedly lied to the public

Change Research report here. And Reuters (Trump at 37%, 40 yes-42 no on impeachment) is here. Elizabeth Warren is all in.  Susan B Glasser/New Yorker: The Mueller Report Won’t End Trump’s Presidency, But It Sure Makes Him Look Bad Many commentators were surprised and outraged that Attorney General Barr held on to the report for as long as he did. Soon after he received it, he released a four-page summary, which now seems more than a little discordant with the tone and substance of Mueller’s actual findings. On Thursday morning, he held a twenty-two-minute press conference at the Justice Department to weigh in, once again, with his own views of how exculpatory the report is for President Trump—all before letting anyone actually read it. In his press conference, Barr made a number of dubious and highly questionable claims, such as an assertion that the White House had fully coöperated with Mueller’s investigation and that Mueller had found “no evidence” of the Trump campaign conspiring with Russia. In fact, the report details the many ways in which Trump was not only refusing to coöperate with the investigation but was doing his best to shut it down. For instance, he tried to get the White House counsel to fire Mueller and repeatedly lied about doing it. The Mueller report also notes that the lack of a conclusion about whether there was a conspiracy between Trump and Russia “does not mean there was no evidence.” But, having now read the report, I am not surprised by how the Attorney General chose to characterize it; William Barr, it turns out, is a perfect representative of the Trump Administration. xOne thing the report shows is that the president has repeatedly and purposefully lied to the public over the course of the past two years.That's not a crime, and it's not really new information. But it's also .... not good.— Matt Glassman (@MattGlassman312) April 18, 2019 Trump 2016 was aided and abetted by the Russians. That is a hard fact. Republican spin won't change that fact, or the fact that Trump did everything he could to shut down the investigation. So  the Trump administration lies, they cheat and they steal. What the Mueller report lays bare is that Republicans are corrupt to the core to go along with it.
