DEEP STATE LEAK: Mueller’s Team of Angry Democrats Say Trump Report More Damaging Than Bill Barr Reveals
We knew this was coming — Mueller and his goons are scrambling to take control of the narrative.
Mueller’s team of Democrat donors are reportedly frustrated because the special counsel’s report on Trump is more damaging than what Attorney General Bill Barr has revealed, according to a Deep State leak on Wednesday.
The New York Times cited “government officials” and others familiar with Mueller’s investigators’ “simmering frustrations” Wednesday, fueling conspiracy theories that Bill Barr is covering for Trump.
Some of Mueller’s investigators have told associates that Barr failed to adequately portray their report on Trump and that their findings were more damaging for the President than Barr revealed.
Mueller’s goons are frustrated that Bill Barr shaped the narrative of the special counsel’s report when he released a 4-page summary last weekend revealing that there was zero evidence that Trump’s camp conspired with Russia.
Via The New York Times:
Mr. Barr has said he would move quickly to release the nearly 400-page report but needed time to scrub out confidential information. The special counsel’s investigators had already written multiple summaries of the report, and some team members believe that Mr. Barr should have included more of their material in the four-page letter he wrote on March 24 laying out their main conclusions, according to government officials familiar with the investigation. Mr. Barr only briefly cited the special counsel’s work in his letter.
However, the special counsel’s office never asked Mr. Barr to release the summaries soon after he received the report, a person familiar with the investigation said. And the Justice Department quickly determined that the summaries contain sensitive information, like classified material, secret grand-jury testimony and information related to current federal investigations that must remain confidential, according to two government officials.
The Democrats and their stenographers in the media were stunned when Attorney General Bill Barr released a 4-page summary of Mueller’s “principal conclusions” on the Russia investigation and concluded that Trump did not conspire with the Kremlin.
Mueller also left it up to AG Barr to decide whether Trump obstructed justice — No collusion and no obstruction, Barr concluded.
Conspiracy theories about Bill Barr began to fly and the Dems turned their ire toward the newly confirmed Attorney General — the Dems immediately got to work and used every tool in their arsenal to obtain Mueller’s full report.
The House Judiciary Committee authorized a subpoena for Mueller’s full report without redactions on Wednesday in a 24-17 vote.
“The Constitution charges Congress with holding the president accountable for alleged official misconduct. That job requires us to evaluate the evidence for ourselves, not the attorney general’s summary, not a substantially redacted synopsis, but the full report and the underlying evidence,” House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler said in his opening statement Wednesday.
Nadler also said that so far, Bill Barr has “refused” to work with him to help obtain access to materials.
Mueller’s team interviewed 500 witnesses and issued 2800 subpoenas in an investigation that spanned over 675 days with a total of 19 high-powered lawyers and 40 FBI agents.
Under special counsel rules, Mueller is to give Attorney General Bill Barr a confidential report.
Barr is redacting people’s names who were not indicted — the law protects people named in the report who have not been indicted — especially if it’s grand jury material.
“It’s a crime to release grand jury material without the approval of the courts and it’s even a crime to release it to Congress without the approval of the courts,” Alan Dershowitz said.
Barr announced in a letter to Congress that he would be releasing Mueller’s report with proper redactions mid-April “if not sooner.”
