After Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the Russia scandal had been released on Thursday (local time), U.S. President Donald Trump tweeted “Game of Thrones” meme, proclaiming his victory. Above the phrase, “Game over” in the middle of the graphic read, “No collusion, no obstruction. For the haters and the radical left Democrats.”

According to U.S. media outlets, such as AP and CNN, Mueller’s investigation found no evidence that Trump conspired with Russia in the 2016 presidential election and no sufficient evidence to prosecute an obstruction case. But a redacted version of the report wrote, “Accordingly, while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.”

The conclusion of the report has somewhat cleared Trump of some charges, such as collusion with Russia that could be subject to criminal punishment. Before and after Attorney General William Barr’s news conference on the Mueller’s report, Trump tweeted some 10 memes, protesting his innocence.

Even after release of the report, most people in Washington do not agree that the report completely exonerated Trump. The 448-page report signals another heated political battle in Washington.
