Emboldened: Trump's presidency enters new era

Donald Trump now has a chance to recast the story of his presidency.

Just as he did on election night in 2016, the President has won a victory over the conventional wisdom of his critics, this time after special counsel Robert Mueller found there was no evidence that Trump had conspired with a hostile foreign nation -- Russia -- to win power.

The finding, delivered in a summary of the Mueller report by Attorney General William Barr, means Trump can finally try to move on from an intrigue that strangled his presidency from the start.

The report offered personal vindication to Trump and a powerful new political weapon to fire at his critics in the Democratic Party and the media at the start of his re-election campaign.

But the Democratic victory in November's midterm elections will guarantee that the report is not the final word, as it might have been if the Republican still had a monopoly on power in Washington.

Democratic leaders are already demanding the full release of the report and are challenging Barr's interpretation of Mueller's findings.
