Graham derides Dems' 'Oliver Stone approach' to Mueller report

Posted March 29, 2019

Special counsel Robert Mueller's confidential report on the Russian Federation investigation is more than 300 pages, according to a Justice Department official and a second source with knowledge of the matter.

Trump strode into a high-spirited gathering of Senate Republicans, flanked by party leaders, saying the attorney general's summary of Mueller's report "could not have been better".

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called Barr's synopsis that cleared President Donald Trump of campaign collusion with Russian Federation and criminal obstruction of the federal probe "condescending" and "arrogant". Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., that he's combing through Mueller's report and removing classified, grand jury and other information in hopes of releasing the rest to Congress.

Her show built to a crescendo in the days leading up to the release, as rumors swirled that Mueller was nearing the conclusion of the report which Maddow confidently predicted would prove decisive in the downfall of Trump.

The president now wants everyone to believe the Mueller Report clearing him of collusion, but does he want to disbelieve that part of the same report that incriminates Russian Federation for campaign interference?

Barr Plans to Take Weeks, Not Months, to Do Next Mueller Report
Just 43% feel Congress ought to end the investigation completely following the release of Barr's summary of Mueller's findings. Axios reported earlier Wednesday that McCarthy told the president that the attempt to get the ACA overturned "made no sense".

Trump also has said he's fine with releasing the findings.

"[Trump] feels that it's damaging to the country, damaging to the ability to lead the country, that we basically-somebody within the Obama administration, within the DOJ and the FBI, basically concocted an investigation, trumped it up to be something that it wasn't and then we've gone through two years of the country being stalled because of this fake investigation."

The Democratic chairmen of six House committees have demanded that Barr release the Mueller report to Congress by Tuesday.

"We don't need to see Paul Manafort's ostrich jacket, but we do need to know that it's there", says Maryland Rep. Jamie Raskin, a Democratic member of the Judiciary panel.

But it is believed that no lawmakers have seen the report.

None of us are, but you know, you've got a lot more to learn about life at those ages than you have when you get to my age". And next up Gareth Southgate's men take on Montenegro on Monday.

The President was interviewed by Sean Hannity on Fox News on Wednesday night to "react" to the Mueller report.

As he stared at Republicans, he began a refrain of "you might think it's OK" as he listed events, such as Donald Trump Jr. meeting with a Russian lawyer who claimed to have dirt on Mrs. Clinton.

"Mr. Chairman, I'm asking for your resignation today, because I believe you are advancing [Russian President Vladimir] Putin's work", said Republican Mike Turner during the hearing. Which, we now know, is the elusive "what is true" Comey's "honest group of people" were trying to find out.

While Barr disagreed with Mueller that Trump couldn't be exonerated on obstruction, Barr also disagrees with Trump's move to outlaw Obamacare in full.

"The Department of Justice should not be involved in a cover-up of what's actually in the report", he said. Instead, Baker focused on the aspect of Mueller's investigation that touched on Trump's behavior as president and possible charges of obstruction of justice. Both parties are readjusting their aims and strategies in the post-probe landscape, pivoting to health care and other issues that are more important for many voters, even with Mueller's full findings still unknown.

Trump says public should see 'ridiculous' Mueller report
Still, he said the report that Mueller is writing should be released, so they can evaluate the claims for themselves. He also argued that he won the support of "tens of millions of voters" in 2016, while Mueller "never got a vote".
