Judge Nap: AG Barr 'Probably Misled' House Lawmakers With Prior Testimony

Barr testified that he called Mueller after receiving his complaints and Mueller told him he hadn't "misrepresented" the report.

It's hard to avoid the suspicion that Mueller's moan was driven by members of his team of Democratic partisans and Trump haters.

"That's the definition of collusion", he emphasized.

Mueller delivered the report to the Department of Justice on March 22.

Cornyn accused the Obama administration of failing to do more to stop the Russian election meddling threat and claimed that the Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation "decided to place their bets on Hillary Clinton and focus their efforts on investigating the Trump campaign".

"In order for a full accounting of Russian interference attempts, shouldn't the special counsel have considered on whether the Steele dossier was part of a Russian disinformation and interference campaign?"

The focus of Barr's review is two-fold: First, how the Department of Justice (DOJ) and FBI investigated former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server to conduct official USA diplomatic business. Yes, he was, answered Barr.

Democrats on the House panel are expected on Wednesday to approve a plan to allow an extra hour of time on Thursday - divided into equal 30-minute, unbroken segments for each party - for either lawmakers or committee staff to ask questions. What if the "no collusion, no obstruction" conclusions in Barr's summary were so instantly persuasive that Mueller's far more ominous treatment of the obstruction issue in his report went completely overlooked by the public?

The 60-year-old singer says her career has come "full circle" with her upcoming fourteenth studio album, which will be released on 14 June.

Grassley also asked Barr whether or not Mueller should have looked into the origins of the FBI's investigation of alleged Trump-campaign collusion with Russian Federation.

"The origins of that narrative?" "I really don't. And I've been preoccupied with other things", Sanders said in an interview with Sirius XM radio.

"That's something that I am reviewing and, again, will look at whatever the special counsel has developed on that".

"I'm not in the business of determining when lies are told to the American people". Three weeks later, Barr released them plus much more.

'What were the directions given?'

That would put him in the company of Obama administration Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., who was the first to be held in contempt, also over his refusal to turn over documents the House, then led by Republicans, had demanded.

"We have multiple criminal leak investigations under way", Barr said when asked by former committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, what his team is doing to address leaks to the media from sources within the FBI and Department of Justice throughout the course of the Russian Federation investigation. "What were the directions given to the special counsel?"

Later in the hearing, in response to a question from former Committee Chairman Sen. He urged the Justice Department to release selected materials immediately in an attempt to address "public confusion".
