The Democrats in Congress should not screw around with Barr on the release of the Mueller Report

They should go to court right now and demand the full report. We don't want any watered down Barr Report. We want total transparency and we have a mandate from the American people( 84%) approval. We will be disappointed with the report we get if Barr starts removing damaging evidence on Trump and the White House gets claim to executive privileges.

1. Surprised they haven't subpoenaed Mueller to read his report aloud

I hope the letter requesting his presence has been drawn up, at least.

5. I agree, only Mueller can explain why he deferred on obstruction of justice finding

Did he do so to let Congress decide or did he hand it off to Barr which is totally unfair considering his audition for his job.

19. Need to hope that John Roberts might be centrist/reasonable

That's our only chance, and he did uphold Obamacare and has been willing to criticize Trump. Hopefully, Clarence Thomas won't retire before 2021 and a Democratic President will get to appoint his replacement.

3. That my concern... they might edit/delete out information. Most of them are damn liars, so it could

be hard to tell if it's been altered or not. I just don't trust any of them.

18. They have to redact certain things

Any personal info that identifies innocent individuals or otherwise non-suspects must be redacted before they can release the report. Don't forget that Mueller interviewed tons of people who hadn't been indicted or subpoenaed, and they gave important background info.

Barr should have until next Tuesday to complete his redaction, then we can throw the book at him.

4. Only the president can claim executive privilege, and I'm not sure he or she can do it

once the cat is out of the bag. "Oh, gosh, you shouldn't have heard that. My bad!"

13. Executive privilege

Can he even claim that about events that happened prior to him being sworn in? I wouldn't think so. Maybe he can for his secret meetings with his idol Putin, but he's not going to be able to use it as a blanket excuse.

29. He can't claim exec privilege just because something

Is derogatory. Supreme Court determined that re Nixon tapes.

Of course not saying he wouldn't try. Barr's probably already in a trump vise.

6. If the report was exculpatory then it would have been released days ago but instead Barr now says...

... he has to edit it and put out a summary.

9. +1, at minimum the Trump admin would've rushed to dems to set a date they can all agree on

... when it comes to the release including the conditions.

I understand the Clinton effect out of the report but Mueller's outfit wasn't a bunch of political hacks writing the report like Comey it was chosen to be apolitical.

30. Hmm . But trump admin said they haven't even seen it. I have

Said all along that with GOP moles and Whitaker already told trump the juicy parts. That's why trump trashed Mueller to bitter end. Because there is bad stuff.

Government prosecutors revealed in a hearing this morning that Mueller’s grand jury is “continuing robustly” despite Mueller’s report being submitted to the DOJ.

https://www.thedailybeast.com/foxs-judge-napolitano-on-conspiracy-in-mueller-report-there-is-something-there?via=twitter_page
“We saw on Sunday a four-page summary of a 700-page report,” the Fox analyst said. “The 700-page report is a summary of two million pages of documents, of raw evidence.”

15. Um... that has happened. Schiff has given them a deadline of Tuesday.

 

And if Barr and or the WH doesn't meet the deadline, Dems subpoena Mueller.

You're welcome.

20. If Barr issues a report that unnecessarily omits damaging material....

maybe that could be a pretext for calling Mueller to testify about it. It's going to be very disappointing if nothing comes forward to refute Trump's exoneration bullshit.

25. Dems control DoJ's money

and exercise oversight of DoJ now. All Nadler has to do is let Barr know there will be no DoJ appropriations bill until the full, unredacted Mueller report is turned over to Congress.
