Skip to comments.William Barr rejects Democrats' demands for Mueller report

Every page of the nearly 400-page Mueller report contains information that cannot be made public and must be redacted, Attorney General William Barr said Thursday, explaining why he has not met congressional Democrats deadline for turning it over to them.
Frustrated Democrats fired back, saying they suspect Mr. Barr of covering up for Mr. Trump, and renewing their demands for quick release of the report and for the Justice Department to provide all of Special Counsel Robert Muellers investigative files to Capitol Hill.
In the meantime, Democrats said, Mr. Barr should immediately turn over summaries the Mueller team prepared, but which the attorney general did not release, instead writing his own four-page summary of the reports conclusions.
If there is significant daylight between his account and yours, the American people should know that too, Rep. Jerrold Nadler, New York Democrat and House Judiciary Committee chairman, said in a letter to Mr. Barr.
Details about the summaries were first revealed in a curiously sourced piece late Wednesday in The New York Times.
The paper reported that some of Mr. Muellers investigations have told associates they were unhappy with Mr. Barrs portrayal of their findings. The article attributes that finding to government officials and others familiar with their simmering frustrations. The Washington Post followed with its own similar report Thursday.
Mr. Nadler said he wanted answers.
President Trump, though, said the New York Times report was unworthy.
The New York Times had no legitimate sources, which would be totally illegal, conceding the Mueller report. In fact, they probably had no sources at all! They are a Fake News paper who have already been forced to apologize for their incorrect and very bad reporting on me, Mr. Trump wrote.

They desperately need to change the narrative and they can’t
So now they are saying the Mueller report is bad for Trump and Barr is covering it up.
They lie, it is all they do
And since they own the media, they will never be held accountable
Release it. Let the public know the names, titles and associations of the Obama ‘Rats who concocted this attempted coup.
Nadler and the Rats want Barr to violate the law.
Gee why is it always OK when it benefits the Rats
True May be a good thing but still violates the law.
Mueller is free to say whatever he wants.
He could easily let them know if Barr is lying.
But he’s very silent.
If Barr was lying I bet he’d be all over the news. But he knows he’s not, so he’s an asshole (again) for not putting a stop to these rumors.
Nadler & Schiff now made fools, buffoons, failures & weak sisters!!! Barr says “No”!!! Nadler & Schiff can yell scream, cry rant & rave all they want, but they will still not get what they demanded of AG, BARR. Case closed!!!
Barr’s summary is just that - a summary. Mueller found no collusion, not Barr. If the report said there was collusion, Mueller would have stated such. These people really are stupid.
Exactly...Plus Barr is not about to lie, he’d be a fool to and he knows it.
Don’t you hate these filthy democrat bastards?
The law is clear -
Grand Jury testimony is confidential.
Bwaaaaahahahaha, Dems are S.O.L.
Yep, it’s really hard not to.
Nadler and Schiff now have joined Pelosi and Schumer as empty suits and “zero” leaders!!! Democrat Party dying on the vine by it’s own inept, hateful hands.

Hate is not a plan. They lost the biggest case in US history. Andy Weissmann you couldnt carry Jay Sekulows jockstrap or his dirty briefs.No crime was committed. What are the odds that Weissmann is the leaker?
Barr seems to be doing a good job so far, much to the chagrin of the Democrats.
“Gee why is it always OK when it benefits the Rats”
Because we’d be just as well off or better if Comey was still running the FBI rather than the nothing Wray.
Synagouge of satan: John 8:44.
