CNN explains Barr giving White House advance copy of report. Barr can't get his counsels straight... [View all]

Seems that Barr says the reason that DOJ gets to see the Mueller report first and redact it is because in 1999 they did away with the Independent Counsel because of what Ken Starr did, and instituted the Special Counsel. However, Barr said he gave the White House the advanced copy of the Mueller report was because it was in the Ethics in Government Act covered in the Independent Counsel rules, which were done away with in 1999. Seems there were no such rules for a Special Counsel.

Barr just makes it up as he goes along. They really need to take that Honorable prefix off his nameplate the next time he testifies before Congress.
