More questions than answers

Last month, Attorney General William Barr claimed that Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report cleared Donald Trump of obstruction of justice charges. He provided no evidence to back that claim up, but promised he'd release the report soon with "as much transparency as possible."

Today, Barr released a redacted version of that report that raises more questions than it answers, chief among them: is there any lie too outrageous for this administration to tell the American people?

Contrary to what Barr said in his pre-release press conference/spin session, there's an awful lot of evidence in the report that suggests Trump repeatedly sought to use his office to undermine our justice system and protect himself.

Trump can tweet out as many memes and pictures and exclamation points as he wants. None of it changes the fact that this report shows a deliberate, sustained effort to obstruct the investigation.

I'm demanding Barr release the unredacted report to Congress. He's made it clear we can't believe his word, and it's crucial we know what he's hiding.
