Donnie Trump’s Attorney General Bill Barr gave his first congressional testimony in the wake of the release of the Mueller report this morning and it revealed why Trump was in panic mode this morning. During her line of questioning, Senator Dianne Feinstein, ranking Democratic judiciary committee member, managed to get Barr to reveal the exact law Trump broke per the evidence in Mueller’s report.
Trump lashed out right before Barr’s testimony and after seeing Feinstein’s questioning, you will understand why, “NO COLLUSION, NO OBSTRUCTION. Besides, how can you have Obstruction when not only was there No Collusion (by Trump), but the bad actions were done by the “other” side? The greatest con-job in the history of American Politics!”

Feinstein simply described the evidence in Mueller’s report that details Trump’s efforts to get White House counsel Don Mcgahn to lie about Trump ordering him to fire Mueller. Feinstein then asked if it is illegal to try and get a witness to lie (duh), to which Barr answered, “Uh, yes.” She then asked him to cite the exact law, to which Barr said, “The obstruction statutes.”
Barr’s eyes began dancing as Feinstein described the very blatant evidence of obstruction and he could not deny that she had just laid out exactly how Trump obstructed justice as per Mueller’s report. You can see the whole thing below and this will be the most important piece of footage you watch in a long time.
