Republicans cheer, Democrats scoff as Mueller details emerge
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Many Republicans are cheering and Democrats are scoffing as first word on the details of special counsel Robert Muller’s investigation emerge.
For supporters of President Donald Trump, the four-page summary of the investigative findings released by Attorney General William Barr felt like an exoneration of the man they back.
For Trump’s opponents, some of whom had visions of the Mueller’s work ending with the president being led away in handcuffs, it is a disappointment.
What seemed certain in the wake of Sunday’s release was that it marked no end to the political divide, to the fierce criticism of Trump or to calls for more of Mueller’s report to be released.
