  • Mueller’s Russia probe report rules out criminal collusion

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Special counsel Robert Mueller did not find evidence that President Donald Trump’s campaign “conspired or coordinated” with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election but reached no conclusion on whether Trump obstructed justice, Attorney General William Barr declared. That brought a hearty claim of vindication from Trump but set the stage for new rounds of political and legal fighting.

    Trump cheered the Sunday outcome but also laid bare his resentment after two years of investigations that have shadowed his administration. “It’s a shame that our country has had to go through this. To be honest, it’s a shame that your president has had to go through this,” he said.

    Democrats pointed out that Mueller found evidence for and against obstruction and demanded to see his full report. They insisted that even the summary by the president’s attorney general hardly put him in the clear.

    Mueller’s conclusions, summarized by Barr in a four-page letter to Congress, represented a victory for Trump on a key question that has hung over his presidency from the start: Did his campaign work with Russia to defeat Democrat Hillary Clinton? That was further good news for the president on top of the Justice Department’s earlier announcement that Mueller had wrapped his investigation without new indictments. The resolution also could deflate the hopes of Democrats in Congress and on the 2020 campaign trail that incriminating findings from Mueller would hobble the president’s agenda and re-election bid.

    But while Mueller was categorical in ruling out criminal collusion, he was more circumspect on presidential obstruction of justice. Despite Trump’s claim of total exoneration, Mueller did not draw a conclusion one way or the other on whether he sought to stifle the Russia investigation through his actions including the firing of former FBI director James Comey.

    According to Barr’s summary, Mueller set out “evidence on both sides of the question” and stated that “while this report does not conclude the president committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.”


  • Man thrown from Bayway crash identified

    BALDWIN COUNTY, Ala. (WKRG) - Alabama Law Enforcement Agency has identified the man thrown from the I-10 Bayway after an accident Saturday night.

    ALEA confirms the man who was thrown over the bridge wall into the water below is Damion Wright.

    The car Wright was in had mechanical issues and came to a stop in the inside emergency lane. Wright reportedly got out and walked to the front of the vehicle to work under the hood. While working on the vehicle, it was struck from behind by a 2016 Ford Fusion. The collision caused the male to be thrown over the bridge wall and into the water below. ALEA Marine Patrol Troopers were notified and responded to the scene where the victim was retrieved from the water and returned to land safely. He was checked by medics on scene and had only minor injuries. 

    Wright tells News 5 he was terrified, but only had some cuts and bruises after the accident. His two-month-old son and the child's mother were in the car during the accident. They were ok as well. They were heading to Daphne at the time of the accident.

    ALEA tells News 5 the driver of the Fusion didn't see the car in the left lane and hit them. Both cars had to be towed from the scene. 

    Both lanes of I-10 eastbound were shut down for some time.
