Attorney General William Barr leaves his home in McLean, Virginia, on Monday, April 15, 2019.
The president isn't waiting.
Attorney General William Barr said he was redacting four types of information from the report, which the Justice Department said would be released Thursday. And the reality is that it doesn't take 400 pages to say no collusion no obstruction. "These were crimes committed by Crooked Hillary, the DNC, Dirty Cops and others!" White House officials will review the report, brief the president, and then release a statement that will come from White House press secretary Sarah Sanders. But the political battle is far from finished over the special counsel's investigation of Russian efforts to help Trump in 2016 and whether there was cooperation with his campaign. The House Judiciary Committee, led by Rep.
Congressman Jerrold Nadler, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee that is probing the election, told CNN on Sunday that Barr should release the full report and underlying investigatory evidence to his panel, but Barr has balked.
But if Democrats hope that Thursday's release of the redacted report will corroborate those allegations, they're nearly certainly in for another round of disillusion and reduced credibility.
Mueller on March 22 submitted to Barr a almost 400-page report on his 22-month investigation into whether the Trump campaign worked with Moscow to sway the election in his favor, and whether Trump committed obstruction of justice with actions to impede the inquiry. "He's being as forthcoming as he can", Rosenstein said of Barr, and so this notion that he's trying to mislead people, I think is just completely freaky". But we do know, from both the special counsel's indictments of 12 "Russian intelligence officers" and other court filings (as well as through the work of news organizations and Congress' intelligence committees) that Russia did attempt to influence the 2016 USA presidential election.
They have painted House Democrats' investigations as partisan overreach and have targeted news outlets and individual reporters they say have promoted the collusion story.
"The greatest Scam in political history", he tweeted Tuesday. The White House likely will claim final vindication. The White House and many Republicans seized on the Barr letter to claim total exoneration for Trump. "They got asked questions and told the truth", one unnamed official told NBC, "and now they're anxious the wrath will follow".Читайте также: Foxx thought 16 counts against Jussie Smollett was ‘overcharging’
"The downside of that strategy was they'll have to live by what's in the actual document", the strategist said.
But the people who work for Trump know that he doesn't feel that way.
I was wrong. Trump received the votes of tens of millions of Americans, something I never thought was possible. And there is fear among some presidential confidants that the rush to spike the football in celebration could backfire if bombshell new information emerges.
We don't know if Mueller concluded the president did not break the law - or if the special counsel simply followed the Justice Department's decades-old policy that a sitting president must not be indicted. That remark came after Barr told a Senate panel he believed there was "spying" by US intelligence authorities on Trump's 2016 campaign - a charge he later tried to walk back. "The reason for this is because Republicans and Democrats in the electorate hate the other side so much". "This crime was all made up, it was all a fabrication and that's come out loud and clear". However, it now appears far more likely that Trump is going to win this battle not because the facts warrant it, but rather because Barr has done a highly contrived and seemingly masterful job of releasing the report in the least damaging fashion imaginable. The report's publication promises an end to some of the divisions that engulfed the first half of Donald Trump's term as president and dominated the midterm elections. The warrant was obtained after Page had left the campaign and was renewed several times.
Barr later softened his tone to "I am not saying improper surveillance occurred".
Barr has offered to testify about the report in early May. The president's attorneys have promised such a rebuttal to Mueller's almost 400 page report for months.
Barr said he would examine the details of how the FBI's counterintelligence investigation began.
