(INFORMED COMMENT) – Trump keeps trying to hypnotize people by saying "No collusion, no obstruction," and saying that Mueller exonerated him. Since so few Americans and so few in Congress will actually read the Mueller report, he thinks he can get away with the Big Lie.
Mueller explicitly denied yesterday that he had exonerated Trump. So that's a Trump lie.
The Mueller report contains ample evidence that Trump attempted to obstruct the Mueller investigation. In fact, we know that Trump tried as hard as he could to simply fire Mueller for the purpose of obstructing the Mueller report.

Although Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Ca) did not in fact elicit from Mueller, as Alex Ward at Vox showed an admission that he had decided on Trump's guilt but did not indict, Lieu carefully walked Mueller through the report to establish fairly conclusively that Trump committed what any reasonable person, knowledgeable of the law, would conclude was obstruction of justice.
