Morning Docket: 03.25.19

* In case you somehow missed it, according to Attorney General Bill Barr’s summary of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, there was no collusion with Russia and with regard to obstruction, “[w]hile this report does not conclude that the president committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.” And that’s just fine, because AG Barr exonerated Trump himself. [New York Times]

* Speaking of AG Barr, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler says he wants to call Barr in to testify due to the “very concerning discrepancies and final decision making” at the DOJ when it came to the Mueller report. [The Hill]

* Rudy Giuliani wants apologies and he wants them now: From legislators to former CIA chiefs, Trump’s personal attorney is demanding apologies from all manner of people who said there was evidence of Russian collusion. [Business Insider]

* Want to see what the Mueller report actually said? Luckily, the Electronic Privacy Information Center filed a FOIA lawsuit in the D.C. Circuit to get the contents of the full report within an hour of it being submitted to AG Barr. [National Law Journal]

* Justice Brett Kavanaugh has been hired as a distinguished visiting professor at George Mason’s ASS Law Antonin Scalia Law School, where he’ll be teaching a study abroad class titled “Creation of the Constitution.” [Fourth Estate]

* I like dollars, I like diamonds, I like — paper cups? Okurr… When she’s not suing people for defamation, Cardi B is applying for a trademark for her catchphrase “Okurrr” to sell t-shirts, hoodies, and paper goods like cups and posters. [TMZ; BBC]
