Rep. Nadler: AG Willam Barr Taking ‘Unprecedented Steps to Spin’ Mueller Report
Attorney General William Barr is facing intense scrutiny...and that’s BEFORE the redacted version of the Robert Mueller report is made public.????The Hill reports that House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler said Barr is ????...“waging a media campaign on behalf of President Trump” reacting to a New York Times report that the Justice Department briefed the White House on the Mueller report.????This could allow the White House and Trump legal teams to craft a more concise response to the report.????The AG is also taking flack for scheduling a press conference prior to the publication of the report…????...as well for his four-page summation released last month on the “principal conclusions” of Mueller’s final report.????The Hill reports that Nadler said Barr has “taken unprecedented steps to spin Mueller’s nearly 2 year investigation.”????Nadler is part of a group of high-ranking House Democrats who sent a letter to Barr requesting that he cancel the press conference.????Nadler has been authorized subpoena power as chairman of his committee…????...to seek the full, unredacted version of the report if he feels Barr’s version does not answer all the questions of the Russia probe.
