This 'critical distinction' in Barr summary shows Trump may not have been cleared of collusion: George Conway
In a back and forth on Twitter over media coverage of Attorney General Bill Barr’s summary of Robert Mueller’s investigation into possible illegal activities in Donald Trump’s 2016 election campaign, the husband of counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway noted the very specific phrasing used by Barr that seems to indicate the president is not in the clear when it comes to collusion with the Russians.
Responding to a tweet imploring Reuters to “please distinguish between no ‘evidence’ and ‘not enough evidence to make a finding,'” in a recent article, conservative attorney George Conway added his two cents by noting what AG Barr failed to plainly and clearly state.
In a Twitter post, Conway agreed with the Reuters critic and observed, “Yes, please do. It’s a critical distinction, and one not hard to understand. If Mueller had used the words ‘no evidence of a conspiracy or coordination’ (i.e., no collusion), you can be damned sure Barr would have quoted those words. But Mueller didn’t, and Barr didn’t.”
