I would call this lying.
Category: Mueller report
Mueller failed to fully investigate Trump
He also didn’t do anywhere near enough after Barr lied about the report.
Barr is politicizing the Durham investigation
Trump wants to use it as a weapon for his reelection. The whole thing is a phony attempt to discredit the very valid Russia investigation. Never forget that Manafort gave polling data to the Russians. Now one of Durham’s top prosecutors has resigned.
Mueller’s testimony tomorrow
Robert Mueller testifies before the House tomorrow. The $1 question I would ask him is:
You did not make a determination on obstruction of justice. Did you expect the Justice Department or Congress to make that determination?
I think Congress should have done it but Barr stepped and cleared Trump. Mueller has played by traditional norms but this has been a failure since Trump and the Republicans have not. They have lied about the report and distorted the conclusions and Mueller has done little to correct them. Barr got his message out before the redacted report was released and Republicans have won the message war so far.
Mueller should have realized that very few people would read a 400 page report. Instead, partisans of both sides are primarily relying on interpretations made by others. It will be good for the report to be discussed in public. Maybe this will increase public sentiment for impeachment hearings. It would be disgraceful if Trump suffers no consequences for what I believe is criminal behavior.
Trump lies about the Mueller report and investigation
Mueller must testify publicly
Trump and Barr have totally outmaneuvered Mueller. They have lied and distorted his findings and he only objected behind the scenes until last week. His brief public statement was unsatisfactory. He was way too polite and not very blunt. He expects people to read his report – that’s not realistic. It’s over 400 pages. He allowed Trump and Barr to set the narrative and there are now millions of Trump cult members who believe Trump is innocent. I don’t blame Mueller for not wanting to make this political but it’s too late. Trump and Barr already have. Now, Mueller must answer questions in public.
Trump and associates lied at least 77 times according to the redacted Mueller report
Why lie if you’re innocent?
Trump talks with Putin about the “Russia hoax”
It appears he still accepts Putin’s word instead of the word of our intelligence agencies. What does Russia have on Trump?
Barr is a liar and Trump stooge
He represents Trump, not the country. He should not be attorney general.
