Trump Attorney General William Barr is under attack for his actions on the Mueller Report which seem to be slanted towards prolonging Trump cover from any charges of wrong doing….
Update…AG Barr will hold his presser an hour and half BEFORE the Mueller report will actually be released….House Democrats chairs of several committee’s have called for Barr to call off his presser before the report release…
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler accused Attorney General William P. Barr of trying to protect President Trump and “bake in the narrative to the benefit of the White House” by holding a news conference about the special counsel’s report hours before Nadler says the report will be made public.
In a hastily assembled news conference of his own Wednesday night on the eve of the release of the redacted findings of Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation, the New York Democrat said he’d been informed by the Justice Department that Congress would receive the report between 11 a.m. and noon. Barr is scheduled to speak to the press at 9:30 a.m.
“The attorney general appears to be waging a media campaign on behalf of President Trump — the very subject of investigation at the heart of the Mueller report — rather than letting the facts speak for themselves,” Nadler said.
Nadler noted that Barr’s decision to characterize the report in public remarks runs counter to what Barr said after he released a four-page letter detailing the “principal conclusions” of Mueller’s 400-page report last month. Barr had defended that action by saying it wouldn’t be in the public’s interest for him to summarize the entire thing…..
Barr has also just announced a more restrictive policy on migrants detentions….
Something Trump is sure to add to his happy talk about Barr’s actions in his favour….
