"effectively no obstruction"??

Donald Trump used that phrase a couple of times in his propaganda spew this morning on the driveway of the White House. What did he mean by "effectively"?

It appears that he is trying to head off the testimony of Mueller this coming week? If the Democrats attempt to say there was obstruction, Trump wants to have a counter argument ready. All he needs to convince are his supporters.

But, the truth of the matter is that, "effectively", there were several incidents of obstruction and any effort to deny that is a bald-faced lie.

They have not yet figured out a way to handle what they expect Mueller to say? The best they can come up with is, "effectively, no obstruction".

2. It means he only *tried* to obstruct justice but didn't succeed,

at least most of the time.

3. HE knows what's coming next week and is trying

to sneak in a change of words. It was no obstruction and no collusion a while back.
Justice is coming.

5. It's been delayed as you probably know. Mueller is just going to cite his report

Nothing new BUT the point of this is to bring back into the public. Very few people have read it but by going over it in Congress th main points get more air time and coverage. Thatís the whole point of the testimony

7. no collusion, no obstruction...no nothing..

I think reporters should stop reporting what Trump says, unless they can verify that it's true. Can you imagine how little news there would be about Trump?
