Trump declares 'Game Over' on Mueller investigation with 'Game of Thrones' image

Trump posted an image on Twitter inspired by the hit HBO series after Barr reiterated his determination that the investigation found no collusion from the Trump campaign with Russia’s election interference efforts in 2016, and that Mueller did not decide to indict the president on obstruction charges.

“No collusion. No obstruction. For the haters and the radical left Democrats—Game Over,” the text on the image reads. 

Trump has used “Game of Thrones”-inspired imagery in past tweets, including his warning in November that “Sanctions are coming” against Iran.

“Though we can understand the enthusiasm for Game of Thrones now that the final season has arrived, we still prefer our intellectual property not be used for political purposes,” HBO responded in a statement on Thursday, echoing its response to last year’s tweet.

Barr’s comments, and Trump’s response, came ahead of the release of the report, which is expected to outline Russia’s efforts to meddle in the 2016 presidential election and 10 episodes of possible obstruction by the president, the attorney general said.

The attorney general defended Trump’s actions in explaining why he did not pursue obstruction charges, saying the president faced an “unprecedented” situation.
