    that said AND that being said

    DO the two expressions mean the same ?
    I think "YES".
    Very often when I browse the internet, I see them.
    what do they mean?
    A. because of what I have said
    B. Despite what I have said
    C. put it this way

    thanks

    It can mean either A or B.
    A: That being said, you know your duty. Go and carry it out.
    B: That being said, there is also another way to look at the situation.

    Meaning B is more common.

    thank you。
    I think "that being said" is absolutely unnecessary
