Turns out Robert Mueller has some issues about the way Attorney General William Barr interpreted his report.
Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III wrote a letter in late March complaining to Attorney General William P. Barr that a four-page memo to Congress describing the principal conclusions of the investigation into President Trump “did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance” of Mueller’s work, according to a copy of the letter reviewed Tuesday by The Washington Post.
“The summary letter the Department sent to Congress and released to the public late in the afternoon of March 24 did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance of this office’s work and conclusions,” Mueller wrote. “There is now public confusion about critical aspects of the results of our investigation. This threatens to undermine a central purpose for which the Department appointed the Special Counsel: to assure full public confidence in the outcome of the investigations.”
One-minute play version:
MUELLER: While there’s plenty of evidence pointing to obstruction on the part of Trump and his gang, we are leaving it up to the Congress and the Department of Justice as to whether to proceed…
BARR: HE’S INNOCENT! NO COLLUSION! GO AWAY!
Anyone for some popcorn?
