Barr: 'Within a Week,' I'll Be Able to Release Redacted Mueller Report

  • 15 2019 William Barr then US Attorney General nominee testifies during a Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington DC.- Two weeks after he cleared President Donald Trump

Barr served previously as attorney general in the early 1990s, in the George H.W. Bush administration.

Before dawn broke the next day, the hostages were freed and the prisoners subdued. She said, "He is not the attorney general of Donald Trump".

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler of NY tweeted that Barr's comments "directly contradict" what the Justice Department previously has said, and intelligence committee Chairman Adam Schiff of California said Barr's testimony surely pleases Trump but "also strikes another destructive blow to our democratic institutions".

Attorney General William Barr is back on Capitol Hill Wednesday to testify at another hearing on the Justice Department budget that's sure to be filled with more swirling questions over special counsel Robert Mueller's report. He said he provided Mueller the opportunity to review Barr's controversial March 24, 2019 letter to Congress, in which he outlined the conclusions of Mueller's report, but that Mueller declined the opportunity review the draft or to provide input.

"My intention is not to ask for it at this stage", Barr told a House committee.

That assessment has drawn sharp criticism from Democrats. A source familiar with the matter told Bloomberg Barr will be examining the conduct of both the FBI and the Department of Justice for the possibility their "collusion" investigations were motivated by "anti-Trump bias".

"It is like fundamentally rigging the game before we know what the actual score is", said Harvard Law School professor Laurence Tribe, who worked with Barr on a telecommunications case in the 1990s. "I have no idea what could have motivated him".

The Justice Department's Inspector General is also reportedly conducting their own separate investigation into whether or not James Comey mishandled classified information. The third [is] information in the report that could interfere with ongoing prosecutions.

"Barr said he will deliver the Mueller report to Congress within a week, and it will have color-coded reductions", noted The Tonight Show's Jimmy Fallon.

Though he said the document will be redacted to withhold negative information about peripheral figures in the investigation, Barr said that would not apply to Trump, who is an officeholder and central to the probe.

For almost as long as the Democrats have been telling us that Trump colluded with Russians to steal the 2016 election, they've also been telling us that the president and his supporters were delusional for believing that the Federal Bureau of Investigation and USA intelligence agencies improperly surveilled the Trump Campaign.

"Even for someone who has done this job before, I would argue it's more suspicious than impressive", Lowey said.

Barr's investigation into the origins of the Russian Federation probe is separate from the long-running Office of Inspector General investigation into the Justice Department's handling of the Russian Federation investigation.
