W. Barr

Not the report, Barr's version of the report.

It will be nothing more than a fiction novel.

First Notre Dame, then Madonna's album, then Mueller. Not a week of embarras de richesses.

by Anonymousreply 3Last Monday at 1:22 PM

It will be heavily redacted, 399 pages of blacked out type, one page of type.

OId, white entitled men like DJT and his supporters are constantly telling black people when they're pulled over for petty offenses that if you have nothing to hide, you shouldn't fear being pulled over by the cops.

Same thing here: if you have nothing to hide, just release the entire, unredacted report. If you don't then you have something to hide.

How much easier can it be?

R5, well, supposedly the reasons to justify the redactions both now and historically have been because of national security, ongoing investigations, witness privacy, etc.

Thursday, time to move the goalposts.

No one cares. It’s over. Next.

Really, R9? Who is that "no one"? The majority of Americans want to know what's in the report and want it released in full. I guess we know what group you fall into.

by Anonymousreply 10Last Monday at 2:33 PM

Grand Jury testimony can't be released as well as anything that is classified. That will need to be redacted. Mueller was involved in the redactions.

[quote]Mueller was involved in the redactions.

Where did you read that?

by Anonymousreply 12Last Monday at 3:55 PM

I saw one guest reporter on MSNBC predicted 60% of the report will be blacked out.

by Anonymousreply 13Last Monday at 4:26 PM

Let's wait and see what's in it.

Fat Donny has been freaking out all weekend over this report, which leads me to believe that even redacted, there *might* be enough criminal evidence there to hang him.

We shall see.

Blocked the deplorable at r9.

Unacceptable. They know it, we know it. The intel committee has a legal right to the report. I want mueller subpoenaed.

Lawrence Tribe this evening:

[quote]§6(e)(3)(D) expressly allows any member of Mueller’s team as an “attorney for the government” to “disclose any grand-jury matter involving . . . a threat of attack or other grave hostile acts of a foreign power . . . to any appropriate federal . . . government official.” Q.E.D.

Nadler can find a judge and get the whole report.

The thing with fighting the trump cabal in courts is that it will take a while to get to the truth.

[quote]The thing with fighting the trump cabal in courts is that it will take a while to get to the truth.

But I don't think this would involve Congress fighting the WH in court. Mueller could cite national security concerns, a judge could give the go-ahead, and voila! reports from Mueller's lawyers straight to Congress.

Tax returns, financial records: that stuff could totally get buried in court fights.

Counter report to what? Why is he allowed to see it but intelligence committees not? Did he get a sneak preview in his happy meal? Sketchy

Judge: Barr sowing public mistrust with Mueller report handling

‘The attorney general has created an environment that has caused a significant part of the public … to be concerned,’ a district court judge said.

by Anonymousreply 21Last Wednesday at 3:07 PM

the thing is barr wants a redacted version only shown to CONGRESS even!!! you know the ones who regularly see such reports, classified information, grand jury participants and info and so on! in fact, it's PART OF THEIR JOB!.... and then you have trump allegedly having his lawyers come up with a counter point report to barr's? 1) uh, i thought that trump and his circle had not even seen the report, so why AND how would they have a counter report? and more importantly, if the summary of barr cleared him of ANYTHING and EVERYTHING, then why is he even thinking of a counter report in the first place? he trump literally had the power to make the report released on the very 1st day! does any of this sound like a person who is 100% innocent? OF COURSE NOT!...

On a related topic, Rachel Maddow spent Tuesday night discussing Barr's role in whitewashing the legal kerfuffle over George Bush Sr's handling of Panama in 1989.

Long story short: Poppy Bush vociferously hinted that maybe Panamanians should overthrow Noriega. The Justice Department issued a secret memo declaring that if the FBI(!) went to Panama and whacked government leaders they'd be in the legal clear because reasons. The person who whitewashed and stalled on issuing that report to Congress was....William Barr.

Stalling and whitewashing: it's what he's good at.

It is being reported that the DOJ and WH have discussed the contents of the report in recent days.

That does not apply to the two investigative House Committees. In the past those committees have received full reports of that kind.

by Anonymousreply 25Last Wednesday at 6:16 PM

By "In the past" I mean before trump.

by Anonymousreply 26Last Wednesday at 6:17 PM

Congress can read grand jury material. No need for redaction there.

by Anonymousreply 27Last Wednesday at 6:22 PM

WaPo is reporting that the redactions will be "light," and offer a comprehensive overview of Trump's acts of obstruction, including private threats we haven't yet heard about.

So, will it go up onto a web site for us taxpayers to read? I remember the Ken Starr report was available for purchase at B&N.

by Anonymousreply 30Last Wednesday at 6:28 PM

Here we go again with this Mueller nonsense. I hate trump but really. It is like beating a dead horse.

Is this thread dominated by those dorks who do the pun threads?

[quote]The House Intelligence Committee has formally invited Special Counsel Mueller to testify on the counterintelligence investigation.

What a shit storm.

[quote] Mueller wasn’t satisfied with Trump’s written answers but didn’t want to spend the time to force an interview.

Can we all do that? A criminal prosecution is inconvenient for everybody, not just the President.

by Anonymousreply 35Last Thursday at 2:09 PM

Did anyone ask Barr or anybody, if Barr pressured Mueller to end his investigation?

Here's a good synopsis of what is in the Mueller report that we should know -
