You mean like Amash, who actually did his job and read the report? Who said, [he saw] multiple examples of conduct satisfying all the elements of obstruction of justice. Who went on that impeachment was warranted when an official has engaged in careless, abusive, corrupt or otherwise dishonerable conduct.

Bingo, thats trump in a nutshell.

Appeals court orders release of more from Mueller report


Quote:
Afederal appeals court ruled on Tuesday that the public has the right to see additional portions of special counsel Robert Mueller’s final report detailing his investigation into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.

A unanimous three-judge panel of the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia concluded that when the much-anticipated report was released publicly by the Justice Department in 2019, officials withheld too much information on privacy grounds, in particular about decisions not to prosecute certain individuals who came under scrutiny.

The appeals court judges examined the deleted portions and concluded that some of the deletions did little more than explain Mueller’s rationale. Those sections should be made public, the D.C. Circuit panel said.

“We determine after our own in camera review of the Report that these passages show only how the government reached its declination decisions and do not contain new facts or stigmatizing material,” Judge Karen LeCraft Henderson wrote in an 18-page decision joined by Judges David Tatel and Harry Edwards.

“The redacted passages contain no new facts; they contain no new information or descriptions of conduct that have not been made public elsewhere in this very Report. The privacy interests, then, are not robust, as no additional reputational or stigmatizing harm can result from the disclosure of the information contained therein,” Henderson added.

The information the appeals court said should be released relates to potential violations of campaign-related laws by Trump campaign officials, not to false-statement cases prosecutors considered against various subjects of the probe. The portions on decisions related to false statements “include new facts that would be stigmatizing,” Henderson wrote.

The D.C. Circuit ruling came in a Freedom of Information Act suit filed by BuzzFeed and one of its reporters, Jason Leopold. BuzzFeed editor Mark Schoofs hailed the new decision as a “huge legal victory” for transparency in government.

“BuzzFeed enthusiastically applauds and welcomes today’s unanimous ruling from three federal judges — the result of months of dedicated, relentless legal work and investigative journalism to ensure that the workings of our government are transparent and readily accessible to the public,” Schoofs said in a statement.

The precise details of the information to be released were not made public on Tuesday since the Justice Department has the right to seek further review of the decision by the full bench of the appeals court or at the Supreme Court.

A spokesperson for the Justice Department declined to comment on the ruling.

Henderson was appointed by President George H.W. Bush, Tatel by President Bill Clinton and Edwards by President Jimmy Carter.

The appeals court’s action overturned part of a decision issued last year in which U.S. District Court Judge Reggie Walton, an appointee of President George W. Bush, largely upheld the Justice Department’s redactions.

Previously secret 'alternative' Mueller report goes public


Quote:
The Justice Department has released portions of a previously unseen alternative version of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on ties between former President Donald Trump and Russia.

However, the 37-page report prepared at the direction of Mueller deputy Andrew Weissmann and released this week under the Freedom of Information Act is heavily redacted. Justice Department officials withheld large swaths of the document on grounds of ongoing investigations, privacy and protecting internal deliberations.

The deletions are typically made by career officials at the Justice Department and the FBI, but the secrecy puts the Biden administration in the curious position of fighting to keep from public view evidence of alleged wrongdoing by top advisers to Trump. It appears that those blacking out the redacted document sought to delete any details not made public in the version of Mueller's report released in 2019 or in other public documents.

The report focuses on the work of what was known within Mueller’s office as “Team M” a group of investigators and prosecutors focused on connections between Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and businessmen and politicians friendly to Russia.

The report details contacts between Manafort, his campaign deputy and longtime business partner Rick Gates and pro-Russian business figures. It argues that Manafort, who worked for Trump’s campaign without pay, expected to improve his financial situation as a result of his ties to a potential Trump administration.

Mueller’s prosecutors contend in the report that Manafort and Gates worked closely during the period with a Russian-Ukrainian political adviser the FBI has contended had close ties to Russian intelligence services, Konstantin Kilimnik.

After the U.S. election, the men allegedly discussed by email the possibility of getting Trump to offer “a very minor ‘wink’ (or slight push)” that could launch a peace process in Ukraine with Manafort as a U.S. special representative. Manafort and Kilimnik were later involved in polling about a peace plan that “Manafort conceded constituted backdoor means for Russia to take over eastern Ukraine,” the report says.

A top deputy to Special Counsel Robert Mueller, Andrew Weissmann, revealed in a book published in 2020 that the team he headed prepared a summary of all its work — apparently including details not contained in the final report Mueller submitted and the Justice Department made public in 2019.

“At least for posterity, I had all the [team] members ... write up an internal report memorializing everything we found, our conclusions, and the limitations on the investigation, and provided it to the other team leaders as well as had it maintained in our files,” Weissmann wrote in his book, “Where Law Ends: Inside the Mueller Investigation.”

At a jury trial in Virginia in 2018 on charges sought by Mueller’s office, Manafort was convicted of eight felonies, including filing false tax returns and bank fraud. A mistrial was declared on 10 other charges after jurors split 11-to-1 in favor of conviction on those counts.

As a second trial neared for Manafort in Washington on other charges brought by Mueller’s team, the longtime political consultant and lobbyist agreed to plead guilty to conspiracy and obstruction of justice. In the plea deal, he admitted his guilt on all the charges filed against him.

Manafort received prison sentences totaling about seven-and-a-half years but was sent home after two years in 2020 as part of a series of pandemic-related home releases.

Just before Christmas of that year, Trump granted Manafort a full pardon on the criminal charges. However, last month, Justice Department lawyers in Florida filed a civil suit against him to seek about $3 million in allegedly unpaid penalties related to his failure to report overseas bank accounts.

Manafort told POLITICO last month that he’s again taking on paid clients and is offering what he termed “general business consulting.” Manafort also stressed that he’s firmly backing Ukraine in its stand against the ongoing Russian invasion.

The New York Times requested the so-called alternative Mueller report under the Freedom of Information Act early last year and filed suit in July after the Justice Department did not release it.

In a letter Wednesday to a federal judge in Manhattan overseeing the suit, Times attorney David McCraw said that the newspaper is still studying the document and considering whether to challenge the deletions.

“The Times has received the Department of Justice’s production, which it is currently reviewing,” McCraw wrote.

The redacted document released this week indicates that when the report was prepared, its authors also drafted “classified appendix.” The status of that classified record is unclear.
