    DUMB choice apparently made by PDJT. This should be run by the WH council for executive privilege material review and, just as important or even more so, to allow same to prepare the other side of story since the investigation had ZERO no adversarial input. That is what I’ve heard various lawyers on Fox say should be done.

    The Dims are going to play upset no matter how quickly the report is released, so LET THEM WAIT! We’ve waited two years already anyway and that point should be made!

      I agree. Nadler etc will have a head start on the political BS. Trump might still be too trusting of others esp. given that Mueller and others on his “team” are assisting Barr. It’s ludicrous that several interested parties get to see it first but not the person that was falsely accused for over 2 years by some of those corrupt “interested parties.”

        The ability to write a rebuttal to one-sided content BEFORE it’s released is also extremely important because any WH rebuttal will be buried by the American Pravda, Inc. if not released CONCURRENTLY. This is exactly why the “lead” Dims have come out and specifically said they don’t even want the WH to have even looked at the Barr report before it’s given to them.

Meuller couldn’t have gotten it, and if it got leaked to him anyways, he likely couldn’t get caught with it, and having it in his final report would be kind of a smoking gun wouldn’t it? I do recall several articles about the WH council blocking access to several pieces of information throughout the investigation that was requested, so if they did that job before, why would they have to do that job again?

    This is an astute move by Barr.
    1. Defuses the Dems rather thoroughly—although they still might go crazy, we will see it as such.
    2. Correctly recharacterized his mischaracterized (for political purposes) 4 page letter.
    3. ‘Working on this with SC’ neuters the ‘Barr biased redactions’ Dem spin angle.

    I now think PDJT will withhold any declassifications until after there are a few FISA perp walks, say Comey and Yates for 18USC1018. The declass will then neuter the inevitable Dem ‘revenge lawfare’ noise sure to come.

I trust his assessment of that, but it still tells me nothing about what IS specifically in the report. Barr didn’t conduct the investigation.

      I prefer to read books, not just book reviews. In this case, I helped pay for the publication so I think I have a right to read it. I understand about redaction necessities, and I’m willing to wait for that, but I can’t learn anything about how they make these decisions unless I’m able to read the evidence myself.

      Rightfully so. The oversight function is one of those constitutional ‘penumbras’—implicit in A1§8.18, but no where explicit.

    Here’s one of the (many) things that bothers me about this timeline.

    Let’s assume for a second that Mueller is acting in good faith. If Mueller wraps up his investigation into “collusion” in August, and then (in good faith) begins an “obstruction” investigation, it has to be of the Administration’s conduct from the onset of the investigation until that point.

    But that’s not what Mueller does. He purposely leaves the Russia nonsense out there to deliberately create the possibility that the Administration will, in the future, do something that Mueller can spin as obstruction.

    Mueller then begins to take aggressive actions designed to tempt Trump into committing something Mueller can say is misconduct. (Like the raids on Manafort’s house, etc).

    Mueller wasn’t investigating obstruction — he was trying to create it.

      • In August the collusion investigation was complete and the obstruction investigation was mostly complete. Weissmann was looking for anything on Don Jr. and Kushner. Not finding that, he was hoping to catch PDJT in a perjury trap by being able to ask intentionally duplicitous, vague questions. Didn’t happen. They put off the release until a reasonable time after the midterms so as not to reveal the ploy to win Congress. Almost worked except PDJT got out and campaigned for Senators and “Hillaried” them again!!

      So true, Revenant… By my reading, if Mueller didn’t know collusion was a hoax all along (likely), he surely knew by July when the IG blew the whistle on Strzok/Page. This is borne out by Mueller not renewing the FISA for a fourth time on his watch in September.

      So from that point forward, all of the following “investigative” tactics (in no particular order) were just attempts to escalate the abuse and, hopefully, to suck President Trump into a credible obstruction charge:

      1) Pre-dawn raids with guns drawn and CNN coverage
      2) Raids on the President’s personal lawyer
      3) Non-stop requests to interview the President regarding obstruction
      4) Leaks saying that Mueller was going to charge Trump’s family members
      5) Leaks saying that Mueller was going to indict Trump himself

      So it appears that — after learning that collusion was a joke — Mueller’s team (the masters of creating “process crimes”) worked for nearly two years to trigger/create an obstruction crime, and failing that to create the most credible accusation of obstruction possible.

      As hard as they worked to escalate outrageous tactics, they couldn’t get the President to take the bait. It shows that the President had good legal advice, that he listened to it, and that he has amazing restraint when he has to.

    I am starting to like this William Barr guy. But he has been in and out of the deepest parts of the swamp for over 25 years and that gives me great pause. He makes it appear that he doesn’t like the politicization of the DOJ, but I will need to see more proof of that before he gets to wear a white hat for me. I am for the Constitution and the way I read it, We the People will be the final arbiters of the veracity of whatever is in that report.

    In other words, I smell more bad fish. I see this as Mueller’s last real shot at the President and I bet he is taking careful aim at his target this time. Just the right combinations of redactions in the the right places can alter the meaning of his whole story and Barr should be acutely aware of any shenanigans Mueller may still be playing out. Call me skeptical, but I am suspicious of everyone who has ever been seen inside the DC Swamp.

It’s disgusting that the FBI and other agencies plus Mueller were able to do root around in his personal life so extremely like that. If he didn’t commit any crimes then he has a right to privacy!

        There is a law, you can’t do it without super duper authorization from the FISA court. People high up (honest brokers) need to sign off on the request. All the evidence is verified and signed off by DOJ top people (again, honest USA Patriots). Then the go to a super duper Judge that is really smart and really concerned about our rights. Only then can they spy.

        As you see you are PROTECTED by a awesome system that can’t be fooled, because there are too many layers and checks to STOP abuse in their tracks.

        Like this one:

        Amendment IV

        “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

        BTW – this is superior to any law because of this:

        Art VI, Clause 2

        “This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the constitution or laws of any state to the contrary notwithstanding.”

        Please note “in pursuance thereof.” Any laws not in pursuance of the Constitution are null and void. And Congress can not pass a law to change the Constitution, but they can do this:

        Art V

        “The Congress, whenever two thirds of both Houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose Amendments to this Constitution, or, on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments, which, in either Case, shall be valid to all Intents and Purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the Legislatures of three fourths of the several States, or by Conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other Mode of Ratification may be proposed by the Congress;”

        The Patriot Act is not an amendment to the Constitution. It violates the 4th Amendment. Lawyers will attempt to cite “unreasonable” from 4A as grounds to justify Patriot Act. They would be idiots to do so as the amendment clearly establishes all the conditions necessary for a search/seizure to be reasonable: a warrant, probable cause, supported by an oath or affirmation, particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

    I sent a letter to the AG saying that I supported transparency of the Special Counsel’s report but that in order to interpret Mueller’s report, we really need to see the unredacted Mueller scope clarification letter of August 2, 2017. I really tried to phrase my request in such a way that the request would appear nonpartisan saying something to the effect that we needed to know the limits placed on Mueller and also the latitude granted to Mueller. Absent knowing what he was charged with, we really cannot interpret his report.

    Please, please, PLEASE, everyone, consider sending a request to the AG asking for release of the scope clarification. We really need to see what Rosenstein was trying to hide from the public.

    Isn’t the reason that the Ds are harping to have the report made public that publicizing any evidence about a perp in the cabal would prejudice any case against that perp? Unsurprising that they would take this tack, and obvious – they all say the same words – that this was directed from the 4AM memo.
    Meanwhile, they could just ask Mueller directly, couldn’t they? They are growing aware that they wouldn’t like the answers. That will be a big surprise, bank on it.

      Yeah, I strongly suspect the Dems in Congress have two burning reasons for wanting to see an unredacted copy of The Mueller Report:

      1. They want to scour it with a fine tooth comb and magnifying glass looking for any hint of anything they can use against President Trump and his administration and family.

      2. They’re scared to death there could be something in it concerning Dem (i.e. Hillary) collusion and criminal conspiracy to influence the 2016 election and shortly thereafter to remove President Trump from office.

      I’d love it if someone in the D.O.J. would anonymously leak a fake news story that points the finger at the Dems on April 1st. Watch ’em squirm like worms.

    “Navigator!” The Captain yelled. “PREPARE THE NORDEN!”

    As the Navigator dialed the target into the bullseye, “FISA Gal” was hit by schrapnel forward.

    Windshield cracked and crew severely wounded, somehow, the Captain held a steady and true course.

    I wrote this with a food for thought aim…

    Good for you, Lindsey.

    Loved the part about stressing that the President is going to differ to your political judgment of the Hill.

    You have been there a long time. You have enacted a statement of solemn trust. MAGA is not blind.

    IMHO, the task at hand, the task in front of you, is such that the country needs to run out the shelf life on certain politicians that represent a Consitutional Challenge to our Republic.
    This much I am sure of, you have stepped into the BREACH.

    And, your reward, if you deliver… is my support in 2024 to carry on the MAGA assertions of America First paved by the President. The foundation of that platform is simple…
    It is political correct to hold the belief that America does not have to roll over on the World stage to be liked.

    PS… The secret is to let the chanting classes continue to believe, “They that will rule the day” when in reality Nunes is your friend.
    We seriously need you to get this right.

    Oft of late, I’ve read, that the outcome needs to set an example so this will never happen to another President.

    Senator Lindsey, I am at a point of civic political maturity by definition of 53 years of life experiences to say…

    The question of how to legistate this outcome, so this will never happen again in light of ‘swampy’ details that enable legislation that can drive a division through the wording of said legislation that is such, that powerful interests can influence the laws to the determent of Consituition Order of the Republic. Which is to say, not only that my does matter and it can be approched clear eye as forestall hoodiwinking of political jargon.

    Enough already…

    The only legislation that can re-affirm the NOTION, that we are a governance of the consent of people, by the people…
    is legislation that enacts a powerful presidence.

    A presidence that will recall this chapter in our history, a presidence that those in future can cite as a reason for tendering their RESIGNATION.
    A special class of Resignation that triggers a Congressional Oversight to the underpinning rational to the tender resignation that highlights a specific set of circumstances that enables an executive director level department head to call in their BS meter with confidence.

    So as to speak to the future, seeing there is going to be push to legislate an outcome such that this will never happen again. I pro-offer to you specifically, to see that such legislation keeps a KISS model(keep it simply stupid).

    Any director in the future, that finds him or her self in the future of having to face prevailing winds of political expediency to act outside the bounds of their Consituitional manidate, either because personally pressured or those below them face political pressure such that they can appeal before their director, an issue of not light heartily nature to act outside of their Consituitional manidate, can reference and instaneously enact a resignation citing a ‘Comey type’ registration, as opposed to typically policy disagreements, but a citation of registration that congures up an abstraction to this chapter in our Consituitional History on the rule of Law.

    Of course, it goes without saying the breach of trust must be allocuted by those that acted with politization to for it to have any meaning.

    The long and the short is, take this input as a blueprint to stamp and certify your MAGA credentials.

  46. AG Barr’s letter is fantastic–a true work of art from an accomplished bureaucrat. In this case, it is very helpful to have a seasoned player as AG that knows exactly how to leverage the power of executive branch, bureaucracy as well as the law to counter rats such as Nadler.

    Sessions, whether he was benign or malign, was inexperienced and easily outplayed, imho.

    Also like that Barr plans to testify FIRST to the Senate, then to House.

    Ultimately we’ll see what is in the full report, likely some titillating details courtesy of the wretched Weissmann. But the principal findings in Barr’s report remain true and will not be overturned by the detailed report. If they could be questioned seriously, Weissmann, and his fellow angry democrats would have long since leaked to friendly Dems.
