Fox’s Baier: Despite What Trump Says, ‘This Was Not No Collusion, No Obstruction’

Immediately after special counsel Robert Mueller’s statement Wednesday, which largely emphasized and reaffirmed the conclusions of his report, Fox News’ Bret Baier said that the comments contradicted President Donald Trump’s constant “witch hunt” mantra.

“This was not, as the President says time and time again, no collusion, no obstruction. It was much more nuanced than that,” Baier said.

He added that Mueller underscored that if his team had found that Trump definitely did not commit obstruction of justice, they would have said that.

Trump tweeted soon after that there was “insufficient evidence” and that he is “innocent.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
