Powerful House Democrat Calls AG Barr 'Biased'

‘Conclusion – no collusion’: Trump says he hasn’t read Mueller Report, calls it ‘waste of time’

Late last month, the attorney general informed lawmakers in writing that he would not submit Mueller's report to the White House to review for any material that might be covered by executive privilege, which allows the president and other senior officials in the executive branch to withhold some information from Congress, the courts and the public.

If Special Counsel Robert Mueller thought he was safe from the president's Twitter-based criticism now that he's turned in his report to the Department of Justice, he's in for a rude awakening.

Barr said he had concluded there was not enough evidence to show that Trump committed the crime of obstruction.

"Erroneously, Trump's going to try and use [the Barr summary] for political capital, but political capital in terms of bashing the Democrats and bashing the witch hunt", Parcells said.

Giuliani's comments come just days after The New York Times reported on the upset among some Mueller staffers over Barr's handling of the report - particularly the attorney general's four-page summary that noted there was no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, and Barr's decision not to proceed with obstruction of justice charges against Trump.

Barr is working with Rosenstein, Mueller, and their key aides to produce an edited version of the report.

On another matter, House Democrats have also asked the Internal Revenue Service to turn over the last six years of Trump's personal and business federal tax returns.

He said his letter was not a summary of Mueller's report.

The President did exactly that in his first speech since Barr's summary was released, in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

"Only know the conclusions, and on the big one, No Collusion".

In October, the special counsel's office released a statement revealing it had asked the FBI to investigate a GOP scheme to discredit Mueller using false allegations of sexual misconduct. That could include the June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower in NY in which a Russian lawyer promised "dirt" on Clinton to senior campaign officials, as well as a secret January 2017 meeting in the Seychelles investigated as a possible attempt to set up a back channel between the incoming Trump administration and the Kremlin while Democrat Barack Obama was still president. "This is a call for basic transparency and I think most Americans will realize that's fair".

Mr Trump, who declared a "complete and total exoneration" when Mr Barr announced Mr Mueller's conclusions, said that Democrats "are fighting hard to keep the Witch Hunt alive".

To Dr. Jack Jackson, a law professor at Whitman, this was a central problem in conversations about the Mueller investigation: "Too much time has been spent on speculation and too little time has been devoted to actual political facts and known reality".
