On April 18, 2019, Attorney General William Barr released a redacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report. The investigation primarily focused on the possible collusion between President Donald Trump and Russia during the 2016 presidential election.
Mueller concluded that while Russia meddled in the election, President Trump did not conspire with them. Barr added that there was "not sufficient [evidence] to establish that the President committed an obstruction-of-justice offense."
Naturally, the internet had strong opinions after seeing the redacted Mueller report for themselves. As people read through the 442-page redacted document, they took to Twitter to highlight findings, joke about the exact definition of "lightly redacted," and muse as to what President Trump meant when he discovered Mueller was assigned to the investigation and said, "Oh my God. This is terrible. This is the end of my presidency. I'm f*cked."

"A statement that the investigation did not establish particular facts does not mean that there was no evidence of those facts." -- Mueller report, p. 2— Asha Rangappa (@AshaRangappa_) April 18, 2019
Funny how Barr forgot to quote that part in his written summary or his press conference
It is clear Congress and the American people must hear from Special Counsel Robert Mueller in person to better understand his findings. We are now requesting Mueller to appear before @HouseJudiciary as soon as possible. pic.twitter.com/Mmo6PA4KPt— (((Rep. Nadler))) (@RepJerryNadler) April 18, 2019
The interesting thing about the Trump quote, “This is the end of my presidency. I’m fucked,” Is that Trump seems to know he does crimes, and that investigation would find those crimes. If Mueller investigated me, my response would be, “Uh, okay.” Not, “I’ll never work again!!”— Heather Anne Campbell (@heathercampbell) April 18, 2019
