Painting of William Barr

Barr did not mischaracterize the contents of the Mueller report nor were his descriptions off ...

... about what was in the report he flat out lied about what was in the report in order to keep a cover up
of the greatest crime in American history covered up.

An update from the movie, "Open Range"

2003 Movie "Open Range"
Sue Barlow: You're a disgrace, Marshal Poole. You always have been.
Sheriff Poole: I know it. That's just the way it is.

2019 update
The American People: You're a disgrace, Rod Rosenstein. You always have been.
Rod Rosenstein: I know it. That's just the way it is.


About this time last year I was suckered in after watching Rosenstein talk to some lawyers in MD
about how the rule of law and doing the right thing was the most important things to him and about
how he had a picture of the A.G. under FDR up on the walls of his office because he was his hero
because he always did the right thing and that it was very important to not let politics get in the way.

Washington Post Kremlin rejects Mueller report, calling it inconclusive, harmful to U.S.-Russia tie


Funny, Trump and Putin are on the same page as per their response to the Mueller Report.

*******

MOSCOW — The Kremlin on Friday rejected special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s report on his investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, calling it inconclusive in establishing any such meddling and damaging to U.S.-Russia relations.

The report “still does not present any conclusive evidence of alleged interference by the Russian Federation in the electoral process in America,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters Friday. “We continue to refuse to accept any such accusation.”

A redacted version of the Mueller report, released Thursday, extensively details efforts by the Russian GRU military intelligence service to hack servers at the Democratic National Committee and a campaign waged by the Internet Research Agency to influence American voters ahead of the 2016 contest. The agency is owned by Yevgeniy Prigozhin, an associate of Russian President Vladi­mir Putin.


“In the form it’s been published in, the Mueller report does not contain any new information,” Peskov told reporters in Moscow. “Everything in it has already been reported by the media in one way or another.” Peskov, who serves as Putin’s spokesman, also lamented that the report and the nearly two-year investigation it was based on have harmed U.S.-Russia relations, which have been in steady decline since 2014.


Echoing the Kremlin’s line, the Foreign Ministry’s top diplomat for North America, Georgy Borisenko, said Mueller’s report “confirms the absence of any arguments proving Russia’s alleged interference in the U.S. election.”

Sen. Warner w/ America's most important question, "What are we going to do about it?"

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s report paints a disturbing picture of a foreign adversary’s attack on our democratic process: a campaign of cyberattacks, leaks and misinformation that the special counsel, like the bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee, has concluded was designed to hurt Hillary Clinton and help elect Donald Trump.

It also portrays a presidential campaign, and a candidate, who saw these attacks not as a challenge to our democracy, but as a welcome political opportunity. And, when the Department of Justice launched an investigation to get to the bottom of what happened, President Trump and his allies mounted a two-year campaign to conceal the truth from the American people.

The special counsel’s investigation now confronts us with an important choice. We can overlook the president’s morally outrageous behavior; we can ignore the deep deficiencies in our laws and our defenses against foreign interference; or we can do everything in our power to make sure that what happened in 2016 can never happen again.

Daily Kos: Wisconsin's Russia-GOP connection. It goes well beyond poll data in Mueller Report

It wasn't just the Presidential race we lost but senate races too. Russ Feingold was at >90%
of winning back his seat.

*******
The Mueller Report had plenty of information as to how Russians worked to subvert our elections and gained influence in our current US government. But what jumps out to me is how much of that story and related Russian affairs connected back to Wisconsin.

Our state appears in the Mueller Report as one of a handful in the Midwest that former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort passed information about to a Russian intelligence agent. The report indicates that this was done to tell the Russians the best way to boost Trump's chances in those states.

snip

Also don't forget that a couple of Wisconsin politicians knew about these Russian efforts before the 2016 election, but hid it from unsuspecting Wisconsin voters. In late Summer 2016, President Obama organized a "Gang of 12" to let them know about potential Russian hacking and interference, and 2 of the members of that meeting were then-House Speaker Paul Ryan, and Senate Homeland Security Chair Ron Johnson. That meeting that was kept from public knowledge before the elections after complaints from Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell.


snip

In addition, Ron Johnson was 1 of several GOP Senators who decided last year's US Independence Day was a great time...to visit the Russians. Sounds like investigative media might want to ask some questions of these Sconnie Republicans, why many seem to have no problem hanging out with high-level Russian officials, and ask what's being done to prevent Wisconsinites from being targeted and propagandized against in 2020. The (non)-answers they give might be quite illuminating.
