Based on a Wednesday revelation, it appears some unnamed individuals on Robert Mueller’s investigative team simply could not wait for the subpoena and subsequent public release of the Special Counsel’s report to surface, as they have leaked to government officials and other associates that Attorney General William Barr’s summary of the report is inaccurate and that it did not “adequately portray the findings of their inquiry and that they were more troubling for President Trump than Mr. Barr indicated.”
According to The New York Times: “The officials and others interviewed declined to flesh out why some of the special counsel’s investigators viewed their findings as potentially more damaging for the president than Mr. Barr explained, although the report is believed to examine Mr. Trump’s efforts to thwart the investigation. It was unclear how much discussion Mr. Mueller and his investigators had with senior Justice Department officials about how their findings would be made public.”
In his summary, Barr claimed that Mueller’s team did not find any evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, and that Mueller was not able to arrive at a conclusion regarding whether or not Trump’s actions qualified as criminal obstruction of justice. However, what this leak from Mueller’s team tells us is that Barr’s claims are riddled with inaccuracies.
This is huge news, folks, and it does not look good at all for Donald Trump. Considering House Democrats are already pushing for the release of the full report, the comments from Mueller’s team are only going to make them push even harder for it, especially if there is genuine concern that Barr was not being truthful in his summary of the report.
