U.S. Special Counsel Mueller Disputes Attorney General Barr's Description On Russian Findings

Washington Post: Mueller complained that Barr’s letter did not capture ‘context’ of Trump probe

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 letter and a subsequent phone call between the two men reveal the degree to which the longtime colleagues and friends disagreed as they handled the legally and politically fraught task of investigating the president. Democrats in Congress are likely to scrutinize Mueller’s complaints to Barr as they contemplate the prospect of opening impeachment proceedings and mull how hard to press for Mueller himself to testify publicly.

WNU Editor: This is all moot. The report has been released for all to read, and from what I have read in the Trump-Russia collusion section, it only confirms the Attorney General's memo. As to the obstruction part of the report, Attorney General Barr stated that since Mueller did not make a decision on obstruction, his office analyzed the evidence and they made the decision that there was no obstruction.

As for Special Counsel Mueller's concerns that Attorney General Barr's four-page memo “did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance” .... IMHO it is too little, and definitely too late. So why the release of Mueller's letter now? A realization that after two years of intense media focus on Trump - Russian collusion to be told at the end there is no evidence to make a case .... we are witnessing a massive let-down and an attempt to shift the focus to try and make the case for obstruction. My prediction. Good luck to those who want to make a case for obstruction when there is no evidence that Trump - Russian collusion occurred, when executive privilege was not exercised, and no one was fired or prevented in doing their job.
