Quote:
The Barr hearing was much ado about nothing

By Marc A. Thiessen
Columnist
May 2
If Shakespeare had titled Attorney General William P. Barr’s appearance on Wednesday before the Senate Judiciary Committee, he would have called it “Much Ado About Nothing.”

Democrats seized on the supposed “bombshell” that special counsel Robert S. Mueller III wrote a letter to Barr expressing dissatisfaction with the attorney general’s four-page memo to Congress from March 24, declaring it “did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance” of his report. Barr told senators upon receiving the special counsel’s letter that he immediately called Mueller and said “Bob, what’s with the letter? Why don’t you just pick up the phone and call me if there’s an issue?”

Here’s a better question he should have asked: “Bob, why didn’t you accept my offer to review the memo before it was released to the public?”

The fact is, Barr gave Mueller the chance to go over the document, and offer comments or suggested edits, before the attorney general made it public. Mueller declined to do so. Sorry, you don’t get to turn down an opportunity to review a document before release, and then complain about it later if you don’t like how it is being covered by the media.

And putting his complaints in a letter — “going to paper” in Justice Department parlance — the details of which (surprise, surprise) were then leaked to the media on the eve of Barr’s testimony, was dishonorable.

The entire episode hurts Mueller’s reputation more than it does Barr’s.

Moreover, officials told The Post, “When Barr pressed [Mueller] whether he thought Barr’s letter was inaccurate, Mueller said he did not, but felt that the media coverage of the letter was misinterpreting the investigation.” So, there was nothing wrong with Barr’s letter per se. What Mueller really wanted was for Barr to release more information — specifically the introduction and executive summaries of each volume of the report, which he had “marked with redactions to remove any information that potentially could be protected by Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure that concerned declination decisions; or that related to a charged case.”

But, as Barr testified on Wednesday, even if he had agreed that releasing the introductions and executive summaries was a good idea (which he did not), he could not have done so because they required additional redactions from the intelligence community. Barr did not want to release the report piecemeal. “I thought what we should do is focus on getting the full report out as quickly as possible,” he said. The attorney general did just that.

Regardless, the whole issue was moot by the time Barr testified, because the entire 448-page report — including the introduction and executive summaries — has been released to the public. That did not stop Democrats from using it to attack Barr’s credibility. Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) told Barr “you lied to Congress” and had “chosen to be the president’s lawyer” rather than America’s lawyer. She announced that she had asked the Justice Department inspector general to investigate his conduct. She called on Barr to resign. “Being attorney general of the United States is a sacred trust. You have betrayed that trust. America deserves better.” It was a disgusting partisan display. Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) rightly chastised Hirono, declaring, “You slandered this man from top to bottom.”

Far from lying, Barr has bent over backward to be open with Congress and the American people. He overrode Justice Department regulations, and released the full Mueller report with only minor redactions. That’s virtually unprecedented. And he has made an almost completely unredacted version of the report available to members of Congress, who now have access to more than 98 percent of the document. And while the Justice Department worked overtime to speed the redaction process, he released a memo which accurately informed the American people about Mueller’s bottom line conclusions. It is a fact that Mueller declared that his “investigation did not establish that the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.”

And it is a fact that while the report “does not exonerate him” of obstruction it also “does not conclude that the President committed a crime.” For two years, Trump was falsely accused of being a Russian agent and colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin — including by many of those on Capitol Hill now attacking Barr’s credibility. If members of Congress want examples of dishonesty and efforts to mislead the American people, they can start by looking in the mirror.

can you imagine if they caught Hillary lying to congress on such a important subject as presidential obstruction of justice and treason, the right wing would be in a hissy.

MAY 2, 2019
"He lied to Congress. He lied to Congress... If anybody else did that, it would be considered a crime. Nobody is above the law — not the president of the United States, not the attorney general."

Speaker Nancy Pelosi blasted Attorney General William Barr at a press conference Thursday, saying that part of previous testimony Barr gave Congress on April 9th was a lie. The attorney general then denied knowledge of concerns raised by Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team over Barr's four-page summary of the Mueller report. By March 28, Barr had already received a formal letter from Mueller that conveyed the special counsel's concerns and spoken with him about it over the phone.

Asked by MSNBC's Kasie Hunt if Barr should go to jail for lying to Congress, Pelosi paused for a few seconds and said, “There’s a process involved here and as I said, I'll say it again, the committee will act upon how we will proceed.”

so Barr is a criminal who needs to be impeached... he lied to Congress as noted Muellers did tell him he got it wrong. and here is his parting words. and is doing a cover-up.

plus I believe Mueller should be jailed too, all previous special counsels went much further in releasing and digging into matters and testifying.

listen to this clip, barr says mueller could charge a president, yet as we know Barr had written his unsolicited thesis that got him appointed because he claimed no sitting president could be charged. he is such a liar.

Listen to this clip and see the unprecedented reply by Mueller to Barrs lie.

In setting the record straight today, Robert Mueller contradicted Attorney General William Barr about Mueller's own report, particularly on Trump's potential obstruction of justice.

House green-lights lawsuits against William Barr, Don McGahn over ignored subpoenas
Politico
By Andrew Desiderio and Kyle Cheney
,Politico•June 11, 2019833 Comments
Quote:
The House on Tuesday approved a measure authorizing the Judiciary Committee to take Attorney General William Barr to federal court to gain access to former special counsel Robert Mueller's unredacted report and underlying evidence.

The legislation also empowers Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) to begin legal proceedings to force former White House counsel Don McGahn to cooperate with the panel’s probe into whether President Donald Trump obstructed justice.

It’s Democrats’ most aggressive step yet in their ongoing oversight battle with the Trump administration over withheld documents and witnesses — granting sweeping authority to committee chairs to sue the administration in federal court to enforce their subpoenas, including efforts to obtain Trump’s tax returns and haul Mueller’s witnesses to Capitol Hill.

“The Trump administration is engaged in one of the most unprecedented cover-ups since Watergate,” House Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) said. “The administration officials now question the fundamental basis of Congress to conduct oversight.”
