    Default Nadler, Pelosi, other Dems blast DOJ ahead of Mueller report release

    Nadler, Pelosi, other Dems blast DOJ ahead of Mueller report release

    Democrats in Congress attacked Attorney General William Barr Wednesday evening ahead of the Justice Department's planned release of a redacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials.

    Barr is set to hold a 9:30 a.m. news conference Thursday accompanied by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who oversaw the Mueller investigation after the special counsel's appointment in May 2017. Neither Mueller nor other members of his team will attend, according to special counsel spokesman Peter Carr. Democrats have criticized the timing of the news conference, saying that Barr would get to present his interpretation of the Mueller report before Congress and the public see it.

    At a news conference Wednesday evening, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., said the panel was expected to receive a copy of the report between 11 a.m. and noon, "well after the attorney general's 9:30 a.m. press conference. This is wrong."

    "The attorney general appears to be waging a media campaign on behalf of President Trump, the very subject of the investigation at the heart of the Mueller report," Nadler told reporters. "Rather than letting the facts of the report speak for themselves, the attorney general has taken unprecedented steps to spin Mueller’s nearly two-year investigation."

    Hakeem Jeffries, another member of the Judiciary Committee and the chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, accused Barr -- whom Jeffries dubbed the "so-called Attorney General" of "presiding over a dog and pony show.

    "Here is a thought," Jeffries added. "Release the Mueller report tomorrow morning and keep your mouth shut. You have ZERO credibility."

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., tweeted that Barr "has thrown out his credibility & the DOJ’s independence with his single-minded effort to protect ‪@realDonaldTrump⁩ above all else. The American people deserve the truth, not a sanitized version of the Mueller Report approved by the Trump Admin."


    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said, "The process is poisoned before the report is even released.


    "Barr shouldn't be spinning the report at all, but it's doubly outrageous he's doing it before America is given a chance to read it," Schumer added.


    Democrats were further angered Wednesday by a New York Times report which said Justice Department officials have had "numerous conversations with White House lawyers" about Mueller's conclusions, which have aided the president's legal team as it prepares a rebuttal to the special counsel's report. The Times report has not been independently confirmed by Fox News.


    The report is not expected to place the president in legal jeopardy, as Barr made his own decision that Trump shouldn't be prosecuted for obstruction. But it is likely to contain unflattering details about the president's efforts to control the Russia investigation


    Overall, Mueller brought charges against 34 people — including six Trump aides and advisers — and revealed a sophisticated, wide-ranging Russian effort to influence the 2016 presidential election. Twenty-five of those charged were Russians accused either in the hacking of Democratic email accounts or of a hidden but powerful social media effort to spread disinformation online.


    Five former Trump aides or advisers pleaded guilty and agreed to cooperate in Mueller's investigation, including former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, former national security adviser Michael Flynn and his former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen. Stone is awaiting trial on charges including false statements and obstruction.

    This should be revealed to the American People so they know what's going on:

    2. "a hidden but powerful social media effort to spread disinformation online".

    We're under cyber-attack from abroad, I doubt it's just Russia.

    Oh boo hoo. Cock sucking Barr has been attacked by those nasty democrats. Isn't it refreshing to see politicians respecting the US Constitution and the law? Unlike the republicunts who have pissed and shitted all over it.

    Yes and no lol.

    True that there’s nothing in it that would send anyone named Trump to jail. That’s out. But Schiff and Nadler want to sift through it for something/anything they can impeach Trump with, finally. Right now, they have pretty much nothing. Which is kind of remarkable given all the impeachment talk by the lefties.

    But look for some sort of narrative to be constructed by House democrats. Something like ‘well, this may not have been a crime in a strict legal sense, but it is certainly an impeachable offense’.

    But if and when Barr hands out indictments to some of the weasels who originated the Russian investigation—it will all be for not.

    The Mueller report proved that President Trump is a loyal American patriot, ... not a Russian spy as your Leftist Socialist TV media has falsely claimed every day for two years.

    I would guess the same 'Dirty Tricks' that we employ in Venezuela, Iran, Ukraine, etc. are being used on us. I'm anxious to find out what those are.
    Do you remember the Russian Redhead that 'infiltrated; the NRA and slept with some guy to further her ambition? It's stuff like that we don't recognize for what it is.
    (We'll probably get 'half' the Report, and then another fight will ensue over the other half)

    Because the DOJ is not providing the report before Trump's surrogate (Barr) answers questions about it.

    Rational criticism...

    Gee, sounds like you've read it ... before anyone else. Either that, or you're just some partisan hack that lives in a Fox Bubble World?

    Fox Bubble world?

    As a conservative, I am bombarded with liberal memes 24/7. I can't even watch a football game without being inundated with DNC talking points.

    And YOU still believe President Turmp is a Russian spy.
