Mueller report a 'total waste of time' - but it proves no collusion

DC's Swamp Rats Cling to Their Hoax

Giuliani's comments come just days after The New York Times reported on the upset among some Mueller staffers over Barr's handling of the report - particularly the attorney general's four-page summary that noted there was no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, and Barr's decision not to proceed with obstruction of justice charges against Trump.

In June 2018, with Sessions's job already known to be imperilled, Barr sent an unsolicited legal memo to the Justice Department and White House strongly criticising the Mueller investigation and its impingement on the president's prerogatives.

Trump is also likely concerned about reports that surfaced last week, indicating that some members of Mueller's core team are unhappy with the way their conclusions, particularly on the subject of the president's "obstruction", were characterized in a four-page letter issued by Attorney General Robert Barr.

Democratic Congressman Matt Cartwright (D-PA), speaking on Fox News about Mueller report and upcoming testimony before congress of Attorney General William Barr, said that he understands that there will be things that need to be redacted from the report before it becomes public.

Barr has faced criticism since penning his letter that he unduly sanitized the full report in Trump's favor, including on the key question of whether the president obstructed justice.

Special counsel Robert Mueller investigated the Trump campaign for about two years. Jerry Nadler, should be provided all of the information from the Mueller report he has requested from the Justice Department.

Barr ignored an August 2 demand by House Democrats to release the unredacted report.

On Thursday (NZ time), the House Judiciary Committee authorised Chairman Jerrold Nadler to subpoena the full Mueller report and its underlying evidence. It also said that "while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him".

Trump, who declared a "complete and total exoneration" when Barr announced Mueller's conclusions, said this week that Democrats "are fighting hard to keep the Witch Hunt alive".

New York Times correspondent Katie Rogers took issue Sunday with President Donald Trump's latest Twitter attack on the media, pointing out a potential logical flaw in the president's argument.

Nadler indicated if necessary, lawmakers could go to court to ensure they'll see even grand jury data in the Mueller report.
