Special counsel Robert Mueller’s final report on Russian interference in the 2016 election is between 300 and 400 pages long, raising questions about the accuracy of the short summary Attorney General William Barr sent to Congress on Sunday.

https://www.huffpost.com/entry/mueller- ... a7f6066f8a.

The Justice Department had been cagey about the length of Mueller’s report this week, with an official only telling reporters on Sunday that the document was “Substantial.” But on Thursday, a Department of Justice official confirmed to HuffPost that the report is more than 300 pages, and a DoJ official confirmed to CNN that it is between 300 and 400 pages, not counting exhibits.

The length of the report calls into the efficacy of Barr's 4-Page Report, especially when you consider the fact that Barr took it upon himself to write a 17-Page Memo to the Justice Departmen outlying how he (Barr) believed that 45 could be indicted/accused of Obstrction of Justice while in offic.

Barr's 4-Page letter "Does Not Exonerate" 45 (Barr's language). But after over 2-Years of investigations, there is no way a simple letter can ever cover the depth and scope of the Mueller Investigation.

The Report will one way or other will become public. Anyone care to think if Iran had helped Obama win in '08 and his A.G. covered up a report about an investigation into such conduct?

More of the report will be made available to Congress and the public in the coming weeks according to the article you posted. I don’t think that Barr intended his 4 page summary to be the last word. It takes time to review such a document and redact those things that cannot be made public by law or for national security reasons. The investigation took two years. A few more days waiting to allow time for a proper review isn’t tooo much to expect.

The Report by Ken Starr was delivered as written by Starr and Starr testified before the House Judiciary Committee. I would have loved to have seen the Republican reaction if Clinton's A.G. had instead delivered a 4-Page Summary and had refused to allow Starr to testify.

If it takes time to review a document this big then Barr should keep his fucked up summary to himself until he has time to properly review it. We dont know anything about what Mueller reported. What we know is what Barr says he reported. It's no better than the shit Sean Hannity reports every night.
Nobody should trust William Barr any farther than they can throw William Barr.

Hand over the full, unredacted report to the House as requested by all 420 members. If Republican Senators won't tell Graham and McConnell to shut the fuck up, and start demanding to see the full report, there isn't a pair of balls between the whole lot of them

Barr got his job because he believes 45 cannot be indicted of any charges while in office. The full Mueller Report should be released as soon as possible. Barr is not to be trusted to tell whole truth. He is covering up.

Just so we are clear. I am not suggesting that Barr be the only one to see the report. I am saying there may be very good reasons that parts of the report not be made public. That doesn't mean that select members of the legislature with clearance should not be allowed to see the full report. There is a way to resolve this without violating any laws, releasing classified information, violating the sanctity of grand jury testimony, or jeopardizing ongoing legal proceedings.

Of course there are ways. The problem is that the GOP vote whores that people like you put in the Congress of the United States aren't interested in any of that. What Congressional Republicans, every fucking one of them, are interested in is taking advantage of the fascist pedophile that people like you put in the White House to accomplish their bigoted agenda. But even more than that, to keep them in their seats in the Congress. They won't ever cross the pedophile unless and until they're sure it won't cost them in the next Republican primary.

You think anybody around here is buying this shit you're shoveling about all the reasonable ways to accomplish anything with Republicans in this Congress? Outside of ted maybe?

And "select members" can see the whole report? And who picks the "select members"? Fellow bigots Mitch McConnell and Mark Meadows?

Interesting poll.

Tweeted by NPR:
In a bipartisan agreement, nearly 75 percent of Americans believe the full Mueller report should be made public. That includes a majority of Republicans.Only about a third of Americans believe, from what they've seen or heard about the Mueller investigation so far, that President Trump is clear of any wrongdoing.

Regardless of the length of the report, the most Trump will read is about a quarter of a page of it.

He reads?

Republicans have their usual huge majority for a typical piece of hooey, but that's because Republicans are an irrelevant minority party being kept in power by the plutocracy and its wholly owned media by appealing to the worst among us. It's also interesting that the "unsure" is so small. That would indicate that minds have been made up already, and won't be changing in any significant number.

Usual tiny sample, though the methodology on these seems to be improving.

I rather envision 45 trying to read such a report in much the same way Snoopy reads War and Peace, on letter at a time.

What Barr did circumvents the main purpose of the Office of Special Prosecutor, to remove the politics or political influence from the investigation and the report of the investigation.

Remember the "Saturday Night Massacre"? Good Old Tricky Dicky was bound and determined to find an A.G. who would fire Archibald Cox. Which of blew up in his face because he then had to Leon Jaworski, who made Cox look an amateur.

Barr has no business sitting on the report, much less doling out his summaries of he thinks should be told. The only reason Barr is A.G. is because of that goddamn memo in first damn place. His job is NOT to protect the President and is exactly what he is doing.

And AG Barr, one of 666's latest boy toys, says he will try to send a REDACTED COPY to congress by mid April. Anyone trust him any further than you could throw him, appealing as that sounds?

Barr is bought and paid for. Redact what? National Security Concerns within the report should be turned over Congressman Schiff. Fuck Barr and Orange Faced Shit Gibbon he bows down to.

I was thinking the same thing earlier this week when I saw the Peanuts cartoon strip (re)running this week. :rw)

If Barr attempts that then the Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee need to subpoena the unredacted report even if it means they can't publicly discuss some of the information in the report. They would be able to tell us if there is information in the report that shows Trump and his people did break the law.

Problem being that Snoopy is way smarter than 45.

45's Attorney's Warn Accounting Agency Not To Turn Over Financial Records.

https://www.politico.com/story/2019/04/ ... ds-1275965.

45's attorneys are warning of potential legal action if an accounting firm turns over a decade of the president’s financial records to the House Oversight and Reform Committee.

Trump attorneys William S. Consovoy and Stefan Passantino are urging Mazars USA not to comply with a subpoena that Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) plans to issue on Monday for Trump’s financial documents, calling it a politically motivated scheme to take down the president.

They are ordering this firm to ignore a Congressional Subpoena.

For a Man who has nothing to hide (or so he says), 45 is working overtime to hide it.
