The report will reveal detailed dissection at obstruction of justice by US President – Crimson Tazvinzwa, AIWA! NO!
Special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, set to be released Thursday morning, will be lightly redacted but still offer a thorough look at objection charges mulled over by Mueller’s team against President Donald Trump, according to The Washington Post.
The report will list a “detailed blow-by-blow of the president’s alleged conduct — analyzing tweets, private threats, and other episodes at the centre of Mueller’s inquiry,” according to the Post, which cited people familiar with the matter.
Today the Washington Post reports that the report will be “lightly” redacted:
The report — the general outlines of which the Justice Department has briefed the White House on — will reveal that Mueller decided he could not come to a conclusion on the question of obstruction because it was difficult to determine Trump’s intent and because some of his actions could be interpreted innocently, these people said. But it will offer a detailed blow-by-blow of the president’s alleged conduct — analyzing tweets, private threats and other episodes at the centre of Mueller’s inquiry, they added – WAPO
Mueller, who turned in his report to Attorney General William Barr on March 23, neither charged nor exonerated Trump on obstruction of justice charges and also said neither Trump nor his campaign conspired with Russia to win the 2016 campaign.
“The fact that the attorney general is not releasing even the redacted report to Congress until after his press conference will again result in the report being presented in his own words, rather than in the words of special counsel Robert Mueller,” Nadler said.
“The central concern here is that attorney general Barr is not allowing the facts of the Mueller report to speak for themselves, but is instead trying to bake in the narrative about the report to the benefit of the White House.” – The Guardian
Barr has been accused by Democratic lawmakers of trying to spin Mueller’s findings, a notion fueled by his decision to hold a press conference ahead of the report’s release to present his overview of it and discuss his review process.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said Barr had “thrown out his credibility & the DOJ’s independence with his single-minded effort to protect” Trump.
And Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said, “The process is poisoned before the report is even released.”
“Barr shouldn’t be spinning the report at all, but it’s doubly outrageous he’s doing it before America is given a chance to read it,” Schumer said.
