When Robert Mueller completed his investigation into possible Russian interference during the 2016 elections, and/or coordination between the Russian government and the Trump campaign. Mueller submitted ‘The Mueller Report’ to United States Attorney General William Barr, for his review.
Barr took all of 48 hours to put together a 4-page document that stated Mueller’s investigation,
“does not conclude that the president committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.'”NBC News
48-hours to review a report that took about 2-years to complete didn’t make sense, especially when it’s being reported that Mueller’s report is over 300 pages long.
After a week of criticism Bar wants you to believe that his initial 4-page document was never meant to be a summation of Mueller’s Report. Barr is now saying that he wants Congress and the American people to have the opportunity to read the Mueller Report, but there is sensitive information that has to be redacted. The plan is to work with Mueller’s team to properly redact the report, and have it ready for release by mid-April.
“Our progress is such that I anticipate we will be in a position to release the report by mid-April, if not sooner,”NBC News
“Although the president would have the right to assert privilege over certain parts of the report, he has stated publicly that he intends to defer to me and, accordingly, there are no plans to submit the report to the White House for a privilege review,”NBC News
IF that was the case, why not say that from beginning, and rush a response 48-hours after the investigation was completed?
Well we know the answer to that question, it’s because Barr thinks we are stupid, and he’s partly right…
Conservatives, Trump Supporters, and Trump jumped on Barr’s summation and went ham on Twitter touting the presidents innocents and damning the ‘witch hunt’ (Mueller’s Investigation). Trump called out the media that pushed the Mueller Report / collusion story. Trump was taking his victory lap.
But the criticism grew and with public support growing for the release of the full report, Barr has to try to save some face. The release of the full Mueller Report may reach the anticipation level of Drake dropping a new album, lol. Well, at least in the political world.
If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!
