Democrats Are Already Playing Politics With the Mueller Report

Barr wrote to members of Congress that he and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had determined that Mueller had not developed sufficient evidence to establish that Trump had committed an obstruction of justice offense.

One of the loudest voices pushing for the release of the full report by special counsel Robert Mueller did the exact opposite when Congress received the special counsel report by Kenneth Starr, according to a decade-old interview, which resurfaced on April 2.

Barr issued a summary of Mueller's findings to Congress on March 24, saying the special counsel found no evidence of collusion between US President Donald Trump's campaign and Russian Federation in the 2016 election. That report and supplementary material includes information about grand jury proceedings, which by law can not be made public.

Barr, in other words, is behaving exactly as Nadler should hope the attorney general would act in such a situation: working to prepare the report for public release consistent with all applicable laws. Sanders' response was that Democrats are only attempting to get the full report because Attorney General William Barr's summary wasn't as critical of President Trump as they expected.

Mr. Nadler had set a deadline of this Tuesday for his own demand for all that work to be turned over, but Attorney General William P. Barr has said he won't be done going through the report until later this month.

Other parts of the document make reference to information that would "unduly infringe on the personal privacy and reputational interests of peripheral third parties", Barr indicated in a letter sent to Nadler and Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham on Friday.

This round includes an emphasis on reducing costs for meat and produce as well as a 20 percent discount on prepared sandwiches and wraps.

Nadler said he's disturbed by the reluctance to release the report and asked Barr to join the panel in seeking a judge's approval to release all grand jury information from the investigation. Democrats have said they will not accept redactions and will nearly certainly be unhappy with the amount of information provided by Barr when the department releases the report in the coming weeks.

The chair of the U.S. House Judiciary Committee, Jerry Nadler, New York City last month.

Nadler made a statement on behalf of the House Judiciary Committee Monday, demanding that Barr and the rest of the DOJ speed up their efforts to meet an arbitrary timeline set by Democrats. Crucially, Barr also said that Robert Mueller himself is involved with the work of making these necessary redactions.

This new investigation is just one of several being handled by Congressional Democrats.

Senior House Democratic staffers expressed frustration with Barr's handling of the process last week. The committee also wants to hear from Carl Kline, who served as personnel security director at the White House in the first two years of the Trump administration.
