I'm sure you will be shocked to hear that Attorney General William Barr's exceptionally-short summary of the Mueller report was not entirely on the level.
Citing sources close to Barr, the New York Times first reported last night that members of special prosecutor Robert Mueller's team say Barr's summary did not accurately represent their findings.
Citing sources closer to members of Muller's team, the Washington Post reported this morning that what they found was far more damning than what Barr has told Congress.
The displeasure among some who worked on the closely held inquiry has quietly begun to surface in the days since Barr released a four-page letter to Congress on March 24 describing what he said were the principal conclusions of Mueller’s still-confidential, 400-page report.
In his letter, Barr said that the special counsel did not establish a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia. And he said that Mueller did not reach a conclusion “one way or the other” as to whether Trump’s conduct in office constituted obstruction of justice. [...]
But members of Mueller’s team have complained to close associates that the evidence they gathered on obstruction was alarming and significant.
“It was much more acute than Barr suggested,” said one person, who, like others, spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the subject’s sensitivity.
If you're reading this you probably assumed this was the case, but I think we're going to find out the truth of the matter sooner rather than later.
Democrats control oversight power in the House of Representatives and they've already voted to obtain the Mueller report through a subpoena, but that doesn't necessarily mean obtaining it will be easy. It's likely that the Trump regime will resist and the matter may end up in court.
For reasons we can only guess, William Barr has decided to put his own ass on the line to defend Trump. And Trump would never do the same for him. I expect we're only days away from a report that Trump is displeased with Barr's handling of the situation. It never fails.
