Giuliani Predicts Mueller Report Won't Have 'Evidence Of Anything Really Bad'
08 April, 2019, 05:07 | Author: Trevor Moore
Now we hear grumbling from the Mueller team that the full report isn't exactly the "bowl of cherries" Trump and Barr would have us believe, what a surprise.
Allegations this week that the US Justice chief downplayed serious evidence of illegal obstruction by Trump in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's final report are fuelling demands that he release the entire, unexpurgated document to Congress.
New York Times correspondent Katie Rogers took issue Sunday with President Donald Trump's latest Twitter attack on the media, pointing out a potential logical flaw in the president's argument.
Barr is working with Rosenstein, Mueller, and their key aides to produce an edited version of the report. It also said that "while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him".
The disparity in length between Barr's letter and Mueller's full report, which totals almost 400 pages, raises the likelihood of additional significant information that was put forward by the special counsel's office but not immediately shared by the attorney general. Since Mueller punted on the issue, Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein made the decision not to purse an obstruction case since Trump & Co. had been cleared on the collusion question.
Giuliani's comments come just days after The New York Times reported on the upset among some Mueller staffers over Barr's handling of the report - particularly the attorney general's four-page summary that noted there was no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, and Barr's decision not to proceed with obstruction of justice charges against Trump.
A Justice Department official, speaking Thursday on condition of anonymity to discuss a confidential process, said summaries of the findings that Mueller's team included as part of its report also contained grand jury information, making it hard for a swift release. "This tells me they don't have anything, because if they were malicious enough to do that and they had a smoking gun, they wouldn't say in general it's very damaging".
He told Congress in a letter last week he must redact material that was presented to a grand jury, as required by law, as well as information that could reveal U.S. intelligence agencies' sources and methods.
So far, Barr has held firm to his stance that he will release this month more of the Mueller report, but stripped of evidence and testimony given to Mueller's grand jury.
"That leak really indicates all you need to know about Mueller's prosecutors", Giuliani said on the Times' unnamed sources.
Many Democrats and legal observers see Barr as an improper actor in the handling of the Mueller report.
