    Default Barr a Fraud - Mueller Objected to Conclusion

    Who'd have guessed that Trump's lackey simply attempted to bury the report with a fraudulent summary. They never really planned on releasing the entire report. Turns out that Mueller sent a letter to Barr objecting to the conclusions that he came to.

    The special counsel Robert Mueller wrote a letter to Attorney General William Barr last month objecting to his conclusion that President Donald Trump did not obstruct justice in the Russia investigation, according to The New York Times.

    Mueller's team said in its final report that it would decline to make a "traditional prosecutorial judgment" on the question of obstruction, citing Justice Department guidelines that say a sitting president cannot be indicted.

    But prosecutors laid out a mountain of evidence they had collected in the obstruction probe — including 11 possible instances of obstruction — and indicated Congress could further investigate.

    Barr, however, sent a letter to Congress before the report was released and told lawmakers he had decided there was not enough evidence to charge Trump with an obstruction offense.

    The special counsel Robert Mueller wrote a letter to Attorney General William Barr last month objecting to his conclusion that President Donald Trump did not obstruct justice in the Russia investigation, The New York Times reported.

    In their final report in the investigation, Mueller's team wrote that they declined to make a "traditional prosecutorial judgment" on whether the president sought to thwart the Russia inquiry.

    But they emphasized that this finding "does not exonerate" Trump.

    Mueller's team added that they would not draw a conclusion on the question of obstruction because they were constrained by current DOJ policy that states a sitting president cannot be indicted.

    But prosecutors laid out an extensive roadmap of all the evidence they had collected in the investigation, which included 11 possible instances of obstruction of justice by the president.

    "The evidence we obtained about the President's actions and intent presents difficult issues that prevent us from conclusively determining that no criminal conduct occurred," prosecutors wrote. "If we had confidence after a thorough investigation of the facts that the President clearly did not commit obstruction of justice, we would so state. Based on the facts and the applicable legal standards, however, we are unable to reach that judgment."

    Mueller's team also indicated that it believed Congress would be well suited to investigate the question of obstruction using the evidence laid out in the final report.

    Before the report was released to Congress and the public, however, Barr sent a four-page letter summarizing his "principal conclusions" of Mueller's investigation to lawmakers.

    In it, the attorney general said prosecutors "did not establish" that a conspiracy took place between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.

    Barr also said that while Mueller's team did not come to a conclusion on whether Trump obstructed justice, he had consulted with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and determined there was not enough evidence to criminally charge the president with an obstruction offense.

    Mueller was offered, but declined, to review the four page letter Barr wrote, which would have avoided this alleged issue. Let that sink in for a minute.

    Still, this is all an intentional misrepresentation of what Mueller said. From the article:

    "In a cordial and professional conversation, the Special Counsel emphasized that nothing in the Attorney General's March 24 letter was inaccurate is misleading. But, he expressed frustration over the lack of context and the resulting media coverage regarding the Special Counsel s obstruction analysis."

    You dillhole...that's wording from the DOJ. The fact is....Barr released the letter without approval. He's in deep trouble. You cannot misrepresent something that badly as an acting attorney and survive. LOL!

    Why did he decline to review it prior to it's release, as offered?

    Not going to work. The Mueller report is final. No collusion. No obstruction. America is moving on.

    I guess you are being purposely dense. This was a letter sent PRIOR to the release of the report. This is NEW info. Guess non-fake news doesn't penetrate that tinfoil hat of yours.

    Of course. Anyone who read the report could see that Barr shamelessly lied for 4 weeks to give Trump cover. The only question is why it took Mueller this long to call him out.

    From MSN: "When Barr pressed Mueller on whether he thought Barr’s memo to Congress was inaccurate, Mueller said he did not but felt that the media coverage of it was misinterpreting the investigation, officials said."

    Well there ya go. You can't even figure out corporate taxes or find classes at the U. No one in their right mind would ever hire you for a serious job.

    Craig and charter school are hanging on for dear life to the Trump DOJ characterization of the follow up phone call between the guys. That's as credible as the rest of craig's fantasies.

    So, when Barr testified on 4/10 that he didn't know whether Mueller supported his conclusion, that was after Mueller's objections in his 3/27 letter. That used to be known as perjury and would get you into jail. Now it's a non story, which I guess I recognize, but there can't be any question why some of us would like to restore the rule of law around here.

    Truth hasn’t mattered since 2015 or so.

    They’re going to vote for Trump and there is literally nothing that can happen that would cause otherwise. They’re very happy to make up their own truth and believe in it, no matter what.

    Belief without proof, is an extremely powerful fallacy of the human mind.

    Funny, that’s exactly what most people believe about the Democrats delusions about Trump.
