Top Dems Refuse To View Less Redacted Version Of Mueller Report

If the law actually allowed it, Attorney General Barr should give them the full unredacted version, but make it so the resulting leaks could be easily traced, then file charges. This is just more of Democrats being sore losers

Democrats Decline to View Less Redacted Mueller Report

Top Democrats responded to a proposal from Attorney General (AG) William Barr to view a less redacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report that confirmed President Donald Trump did not collude with the Russian government during the 2016 presidential election.

In the wake of the Mueller report’s release, Pelosi and Schumer said that Mueller needs to testify before Congress. House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nalder (D-NY) said that Mueller should testify before his committee because they “clearly cannot believe” what Barr tells us about the Mueller report.

This included Pelosi, Schumer, Nadler, Adam Schiff, Feinstein, and Mark Warner

Rather than accept Barr’s proposal to view the Mueller report, they insisted that they have access to redacted material and “access to grand jury material.”

However, Barr redacted four categories of material, including material presented to a federal grand jury, sources or methods gathered by intelligence agencies that would damage national security, material that would impair ongoing court cases or ongoing DOJ investigations, and material that would impact the privacy or ongoing reputations of innocent third parties.

Federal law mandates that grand jury testimony remain confidential, meaning that the DOJ would likely be barred from revealing this information to Pelosi and the other Democrats.

The above six Democrats know this. You know if they didn’t beforehand they’ve had it explained to them, just like it has been surely explained to the rest of the Democrats. So, at this point, they’re just grandstanding for the news and their unhinged base, since the part about the law disallowing viewing the redactions is often left out of news reports or way, way down in articles.

Speaking of Excitable Jerry Nadler

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) on Friday issued a subpoena to compel the Department of Justice to turn over special counsel Robert Mueller’s full report.

His order comes one day after Attorney General William Barr publicly released a redacted version of the Mueller report.

“I have issued a subpoena to the Department of Justice for the full version of the Mueller report and the underlying evidence. The Department is required to comply with that subpoena by May 1,” Nadler said in a statement.

He has to know that he cannot view it by law, right? Right? He can’t be this stupid, right? Or does he think the bullying by him and other Top Democrats will get the DOJ to violate the law? Sure, maybe with Holder or Lynch under Obama, but not now. This could even be considered unlawful intimidation, since Nadler and other Democrats are promising retaliation if the DOJ doesn’t comply.

    The FBI counterintelligence probe into Russia’s involvement in the US elections continues unabated.

    A major concern appears to be Manafort’s direct contacts with Russian spies (and his lying about it), obstructing the investigation.

    Should Trump send the troops into the FBI and do a housecleaning?!?

      Masthead of the piece

      Officials say they’re still looking into whether any Americans helped the Russians interfere in the 2016 election, or are still compromised by Russia.

      IOW Witch hunt. Any Americans should mean just that, but you can bet any Democrats are exempted and and Rs, especially if they know Donald Trump in any way, shape, or form, get special attention.

      And Dilanian is one of the Peacock’s foremost Trump haters.

  2. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    According to the poll Teach cited, 60% of Americans agree with the Dems.

    • formwiz says:

      54% said move on, genius, unless you count the 7 that said don’t know or depends.

      Maybe Jeffery thinks it’s about his Depends.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Maybe Edward Dutcher doesn’t understand that 60% of Americans said that the DOJ should release the unredacted Report to Congress.

        Maybe Old Dutch has a reason to be obsessed with Depend Adult Diapers.

          Trying to change the subject doesn’t change the fact you’re blowing smoke.

          As always.

          • formwiz says:

            Is Jeffery trying to get me stalked or doxxed?

            Looks like it.

            PS Teach only linked the Twitchy conversation. Feel free to link the poll, so I can tell you how crooked it is.

            You posted that name several times, Edward. You should be grateful that drowningpuppies (aka Lil) didn’t cyberstalk you and illegally post an address!

            Would you prefer that that name not be used? I’ll do as you do, fair enough?

  3. Jl says:

    “He can’t be this stupid, right”? Yes he can and yes he is.

  4. formwiz says:

    Knowing by law they can’t be shown the unexpurgated version, they will refuse anything else.

    Old Commie trick.

    AG Bill Bear released the Mueller Report days earlier to Trump’s team, including Giuliani and others. Has it been determined what version he gave to Trump’s team?

    If Barr needed until Thursday morning to confirm the redactions – does that mean he sent Trump et al the unredacted version???

    Not really. You went by Jeffery for a long time, so yours is by what everyone knew you until you wanted to sound cute.

    And liljeffy and I have never had a cross word as far as I know. I’m sure we have our differences, but we don’t get into name calling the way you do.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Edward,

      Wasn’t it you that went through a phase of calling me by various girls’ names because you wanted to sound cut, of which I adopted many of them temporarily.

      So you think it appropriate to dox someone IF you’ve had disagreements????
