Twitter melts down over Barr press conference

Twitter exploded throughout Attorney General William Barr's press conference ahead of the release of special counsel Robert Mueller's report, with strong but varying reactions from members of the media. 

Barr offered a staunch defense of President Trump during the press conference, where he previewed the report's findings and explained why they led him to conclude that Trump had not obstructed justice.

Barr called the report a vindication of Trump over the allegations of collusion with Russian officials to influence the 2016 election.

All of the top-trending hashtags on Twitter surrounded the Barr press conference and Mueller report on Thursday morning, with Barr's comments and media reaction to them dominating.











The redacted Mueller report will be sent to Congress by CD-ROM at 11 a.m. Thursday.
