Scratch the crowing done by Donald Trump, after his Attonery General Bill Barr TRIED to play off Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on his investigations into the 2016 Election and the Russians….and other stuff…
With reports that Mueller did NOT actually give Trump a clean bill in his report….
Reports that Mueller’s people feel that Trump WAS nowhere as innocent as Barr was trying to sell….
Donald Trump is BACK on the attack against Mueller & Co…..
Oh, the post Barr sell hasn’t much changed most American’s feeling that they will believe Mueller….
Mueller and Barr are scheduled to appear before the Democrats in the House also….(and the requests for more Trump info is on-going)
President Donald Trump took to Twitter Saturday to attack the latest barrage of investigations and subpoena threats from his political opponents on Capitol Hill.
In his Saturday tweets, the president repeated claims that the investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller was run by “13 Angry Trump hating Dems” who found no wrongdoing on his behalf after spending “$30 million” over the course of the investigation. He added that the 22-month long probe was a “total waste of time.”
His tweets come amid reports that some members of the special counsel’s team have been frustrated by the way U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr cast their findings in the summary he submitted to Congress late last month.
This week, the House Judiciary, Intelligence and Oversight committees have all ramped up probes into different aspects of Trump’s financial history, policy agenda and campaign, and Trump was hit Thursday with a formal request from Ways and Means Chairman Richard Neal (D-Mass.) for his individual tax returns dating back to 2013.
The oversight escalation on Capitol Hill comes as Democrats continue to demand an unredacted copy of Mueller’s approximately 400-page report, which was provided to Attorney General Bill Barr more than two weeks ago. That request shows congressional Democrats “will never be satisfied,” Trump stated Saturday.
But as Barr’s self-imposed deadline to submit a copy of Mueller’s report to Capitol Hill fast approaches, Trump’s confidence in its “complete and total exoneration” of him has waned, according to one Republican close to the White House.
“He wouldn’t be bringing this up still if everything was hunky dory,” this person said, referring to the president’s tweets about Mueller and his team of federal investigators…..
