According to a new report by the Washington Post, masses of Americans and members of Congress weren’t the only ones pissed as hell when Attorney General Bill Barr released his biased 4-page summary of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report. As it turns out, Robert Mueller himself was pretty damn vexed about the situation, and he let Barr know about it.
“Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III expressed his concerns in a letter to William P. Barr after the attorney general publicized Mueller’s principal conclusions. The letter was followed by a phone call during which Mueller pressed Barr to release executive summaries of his report,” the Post reported.
“Days after Barr’s announcement, Mueller wrote a previously unknown private letter to the Justice Department, which revealed a degree of dissatisfaction with the public discussion of Mueller’s work that shocked senior Justice Department officials,” the report continued.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller wrote in his private letter to Attorney General Barr, “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. 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.”
And there you have it. Robert Mueller himself personally contacted Attorney General Barr by both a written letter as well as a phone call to inform him that his “summary” was bullshit. It intentionally misled the public and completely broke what little trust American’s had left in our judicial system.
The New York Times also reported on Mueller’s letter to Barr.
If by some crazy chance you weren’t convinced before, this is absolute proof that Bill Barr is actively colluding with President Donald Trump and his administration to cover up the details of the Special Counsel’s report, mislead the public, and sway them into believing their ridiculous narrative.
