After the release of Barr's letter summarizing Mueller's findings, the president and fellow Republicans cheered the conclusion of no conspiracy or coordination while Democrats pointed to the question of obstruction and Mueller's report that pointedly did not exonerate Trump. While Mueller's report does put Trump in the clear as to the Russian meddling claims, it does not draw a conclusion on Trump obstructing the course of justice i.e. whether he sought to stifle the Russia investigation through his actions - including the firing of former FBI director James Comey; requesting Comey to end an investigation into White House's first national security adviser Michael Flynn; and drafting of an incomplete explanation about his son's meeting with a Russian lawyer during the election campaign. The Justice Department has not said whether it will release Mr Mueller's full report, but Mr Barr has said he will be as transparent as possible.
Given the report, Democrats seemed more likely to focus on their ongoing investigations, calls for transparency and frustrations with Barr, rather than engaging with the talk of impeachment that has been amplified on Pelosi's left flank.
House of Representatives Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, a Democrat, said on CNN on Sunday he would "try to negotiate" with the Justice Department to obtain the full report, but that the committee would issue subpoenas and litigate if needed. Other Democrats, including candidates vying for the 2020 presidential nomination, have called for release of the full report.
Trump said earlier Monday that the release of Mueller's report "wouldn't bother me at all" but that it was up to Barr. He has also falsely claimed that the investigation was based on memos compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele, and even blamed former senator John McCain, who died past year, for passing the memos to the FBI.
Anyway, let's just see the whole report, shall we? The doctrine is rooted in the idea that the president should be able to receive candid advice on policy matters. The Dept. of Justice falls under the executive branch, but is supposed to be free from presidential intervention. "This case is closed", said House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy in a statement. Barr said he will release more of it after confidential information contained in it is redacted.
Congress would then sue to enforce its contempt finding. But asked on Monday if Mueller had acted honourably, Trump said: "Yes".
Those sorts of communications are exactly what the privilege is meant to keep private, Garber said. Many of them. You know who they are.
Attorney General William Barr, in a summary of Mueller's conclusions, said Sunday the prosecutor had concluded Trump and his 2016 campaign had not conspired with Russian Federation to help him win, but had reached no conclusion whether the USA leader obstructed justice by trying to thwart the investigation.
