Chuck Todd: Barr's summary 'will color' our understanding of the Mueller Report | MSNBC "Chuck Todd says that Attorney General William Barr's summary of the Mueller report that was sent to Congress will serve as the first impression for most people of what the Special Counsel found." Mueller did not find Trump or his campaign conspired with Russia, also did not exonerate him on obstruction | CNN Quote: Special counsel Robert Mueller did not find Donald Trump's campaign or associates conspired with Russia, Attorney General William Barr said Sunday. Mueller also did not have sufficient evidence to prosecute obstruction of justice, Barr wrote, but he did not exonerate the President. "The special counsel's investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia in its efforts to influence the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election," the four-page letter sent to Congress states. Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein made the determination that the evidence was "not sufficient" to support a prosecution of the President for obstruction of justice. "While this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him," Barr quotes Mueller as saying.

Barr, details the main findings of the special counsel’s two-year investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election." https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/03/24/us/politics/barr-letter-mueller-report.html William Barr's supposed "summary" of the Robert Mueller report is complete bullshit, just as we suspected | Palmer Report Excerpt: We’ve spent the past couple years watching Donald Trump commit blatant acts of obstruction of justice in plain sight, that anyone who’s ever so much as read the statute would understand is grounds for indictment. Widespread reporting from major news outlets has long made clear that Team Trump directly conspired with the Russian government in an attempt at altering the outcome of the 2016 election, and some of the key players have publicly confessed to as much. There are two possibilities here. The first, and seemingly most likely, is that William Barr is intentionally mischaracterizing Robert Mueller’s report in an effort to protect Donald Trump. This wouldn’t be shocking, considering that Trump recently appointed Barr for the sole purpose of protecting him from Mueller’s report. The second possibility would be Mueller has been criminally conspiring with Trump all along to obstruct justice – but we’re not willing to entertain that notion until we’ve found out what’s really in Mueller’s report.

Barr’s “summary” of the Robert Mueller report is such a cartoonishly pro-Trump propaganda piece, even legal scholars are scratching their heads as to what might really be going on. But there is one piece of apparent information about the actual Mueller report that has surfaced, and it tells a very different story than the one Barr is selling. What constitutes a “good” inside source? You’d have to ask any given reporter involved. But when it comes to a reporter named Virginia Heffernan, who contributes to the Los Angeles Times, Wired Magazine, and MSNBC, she just tweeted that she received this information about the Mueller report from what she’s labeling a “good” source: “It’s really damaging to the president. I can’t answer any questions about it. But it’s bad.” The source then stated that the Barr summary “is NOT Mueller’s report,” adding that “the report is much worse than this.” So what does any of this tell us? If this source does indeed know what’s in the Mueller report, it tells us that Barr’s summary is a complete whitewashing of what’s actually in Mueller’s report, in a blatant attempt at protecting Donald Trump. Things could have gone either way with William Barr, but it became clear today that he is solely interested in protecting Donald Trump. That said, Barr doesn’t seem to be stupid, and he surely knows that House Democrats will force the real Robert Mueller report to become public soon. So at most Barr’s fibbing today merely hands Trump a temporary talking point, until we get real answers from Mueller. The Democrats will immediately subpoena Mueller’s full report, and they’ll subpoena Mueller to publicly testify about his report.

Nadler @RepJerryNadler 1 hour ago In light of the very concerning discrepancies and final decision making at the Justice Department following the Special Counsel report, where Mueller did not exonerate the President, we will be calling Attorney General Barr in to testify before @HouseJudiciary in the near future.
