Robert Mueller - A Ghost of Fitzmas Past
After all this time, I can't say I am really even disappointed in the letter AG Barr released today. Knowing who AG Barr is/was going into this, his decision to usurp Robert Mueller's authority on whether or not Obstruction of Justice was a chargeable offense, it comes as no surprise that he found 'no chargeable offense'.
Washington, D.C. (Mar. 24, 2019)—Today, House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Adam B. Schiff (D-CA), and Committee on Oversight and Reform Chairman Elijah E. Cummings (D-MD) released the following joint statement in response to Attorney General William Barr’s letter sharing the principle conclusions in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s final report:
"After reading the Attorney General’s four-page summary of the Special Counsel’s findings, we reiterate our call for the release of the Special Counsel’s full and complete report and all underlying documents. We also call for Attorney General Barr to come forward to testify before the House Judiciary Committee without delay. Far from the ‘total exoneration’ claimed by the President, the Mueller report expressly does not exonerate the President. Instead, it ‘sets out evidence on both sides of the question’ of obstruction—including the evidence that President Trump attempted to obstruct justice.
Unless and until the full Mueller report is released, there will be a lot of unanswered questions. But here is what we know so far and what happens next.
