LEAK: Mueller Decided He Could Not Come to Conclusion on Obstruction – Difficult to Determine President Trump’s Intent
Here come the leaks.
The Democrat-media complex is melting down over the imminent release of Mueller’s report, with redactions, and the leaks are already starting.
The Washington Post reported late Wednesday, citing “people familiar with the matter,” that Mueller’s report will be lightly redacted and reveal a detailed look at the obstruction of justice investigation into President Trump.
Those who spoke to The Post for this report did so on the condition of anonymity, citing the matter’s supreme sensitivity, WaPo said in its Wednesday evening report.
The Justice Department plans to release a lightly redacted version of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s 400-page report Thursday, offering a granular look at the ways in which President Trump was suspected of having obstructed justice, people familiar with the matter said.
The report — the general outlines of which the Justice Department has briefed the White House on — will reveal that Mueller decided he could not come to a conclusion on the question of obstruction because it was difficult to determine Trump’s intent and some of his actions could be interpreted innocently, these people said. But it will offer a detailed blow-by-blow of his alleged conduct — analyzing tweets, private threats and other episodes at the center of Mueller’s inquiry, they added.
While the report’s light redactions might allay some of their concerns, Democrats are likely to bristle at any material that is withheld. What the Justice Department and Trump’s lawyers might view as modest, lawmakers might see as overly aggressive.
Attorney General Bill Barr will be holding a press conference Thursday morning at 9:30 AM ET, before he releases Mueller’s report to Congress and the public.
Mueller’s report will be delivered to Congress between 11 AM and 12 noon Thursday.
House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler melted down Wednesday and held an emergency press conference ahead of the release of Mueller’s report.
“This is wrong!” Nadler exclaimed during the presser as he viciously attacked Bill Barr and accused the AG of withholding information to protect President Trump.
Mueller concluded that Trump did not conspire with the Kremlin during the 2016 election, however, he left the obstruction of justice issue to Barr and Rosenstein.
The Democrats are gearing up for quite a battle over the edits and redactions made to Mueller’s report — they simply cannot accept that Mueller didn’t indict the President or any of his family members.
The bottom line is that President Trump had full Constitutional authority to fire FBI Director James Comey which is why Mueller had virtually no legal standing to subpoena Trump on the issue.
Trump would have taken the presidential subpoena all the way up to the Supreme Court and most likely won which is why Mueller backed down.
Mueller’s report will be just like his junk indictments — a bunch of hot air just to grab headlines with no substance.
