Breaking: Barr Releases Mueller Report

Written by Wes Walker on April 18, 2019

As clear, thorough and complete as this Press Conference was, don’t expect the Democrats to accept any of this.

“Thanks to the Special Council’s thorough investigation, we now know that the Russian operatives who perpetrated these schemes did not have the cooperation of President Trump or the Trump campaign. Or the knowing assistance of any other American for that matter.”

That is something we should be all grateful for. But the Democrats will not share that gratitude.

Mueller found some attempts by Russian operatives to influence American elections by way of disinformation, but…

“the Special Council found no evidence that any American including anyone associated with the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian Government or the IRA in this illegal scheme.” “No Collusion.”

Regarding GRU, and Hillary’s emails:

IE: No evidence of collusion.

GRU was involved in DNC hacks by way of Guccifer. They dumped that info by way of Wikileaks.

“In assessing the President’s actions discussed in the report, it is important to bear in mind the context. President Trump faced an unprecedented situation. As he entered into office and sought to perform his responsibilities as President, federal agents and prosecutors were scrutinizing his conduct before and after taking office and the conduct of some of his associates. At the same time, there was relentless speculation in the News Media about the President’s personal culpability, yet, as he said from the beginning, there was, in fact, no collusion.

And as the Special Council’s report acknowledges, there is substantial evidence to show that the President was frustrated and angered by his sincere belief that the investigation was undermining his Presidency, propelled by his political opponents, and fuelled by illegal leaks. Nonetheless, the White House fully cooperated with the Special Council’s investigation, providing unfettered access to the campaign and White House documents, directing senior aides to testify freely, and asserting no privilege claims.

And at the same time, the President took no act that in fact deprived the Special Council of the documents and witnesses necessary to complete his investigation. Apart from whether the acts were obstructive, this evidence of noncorrupt motives weighs heavily against any allegation that the President had a corrupt intent to obstruct the investigation.

Four kinds of redactions in the report:

1) Grand Jury Material

2) Sources and Methods

3) Information that would impair investigation and prosecution of other cases currently underway

4) Information that implicates the privacy and reputational interests of peripheral third parties

There were a number of opportunities for the President to lawfully and appropriately assert Executive Privilege over details contained in the report. But — in the interest of transparency, at no point has Trump exercised that Executive Privilege.

With respect to what the Democrats have been loudly complaining as an ‘unfair’ opportunity for the President to review this document before Congress does, allowing an opportunity to rebut the contents, the AG explained:

The Ethics in Government Act permits individuals named in a report prepared by an Independent Council the opportunity to read the report before publication. The President’s personal lawyers were not permitted to make, and did not request any redactions.

With Respect to the Congressional Oversight objections:

Another copy of this report will be offered to a group of leaders from both parties, with all redactions except for the Grand Jury redactions removed. The Grand Jury redactions cannot be removed by law.

Trump has responded:

So has his legal team:
