The day before Attorney General William Barr was set to testify before Congress, the Washington Post received a leaked letter written by Special Counsel Robert Mueller addressed to AG Barr shortly after Barr’s summary of the Counsel’s investigation was released.
Given the WaPo’s headline, “Mueller complained to Barr about memo on key findings,” we can see what the Left was hoping for: Mueller saying that Barr’s findings were inaccurate, wrong and there really was collusion and obstruction. But there are several problems with this.
Namely, THE MUELLER REPORT IS AVAILABLE TO EVERYONE! The Mueller report itself found no collusion and not enough to say that Trump definitely obstructed justice. In Mueller’s imagination, Trump did obstruct, but the reasons he gives in the report are all flimsy and nothing that would hold up in court, so he left it up to the AG to determine obstruction. And rightfully so, Barr determined no obstruction. If Mueller could not definitively state and charge Trump with obstruction, what reason would he have for Barr to say that Trump obstructed?
A rhetorical question, I believe, as the reason likely was that Mueller did not want the full ire of the Left on him and simply decided to have Barr be the scapegoat – the person whom the Left can attack for not finding obstruction. And it worked perfectly, given what we’ve seen.
The second problem with the WaPo’s headline is that the letter itself does not even support the headline. The headline makes it seem, like I said, like Mueller was accusing Barr of lying about something or at least not being entirely truthful about certain things.
What Mueller was whining about, actually, was that Barr didn’t capture the “context, nature, and substance of [Mueller’s] work and conclusions.” In other words, Mueller is complaining that Barr wasn’t using the same accusatory and vague tone in his summary letter as Mueller did in his report.
What Barr did is simply take note of the Counsel’s ultimate objective findings, which were no collusion and no obstruction. In a phone call Barr made to Mueller the day after he received the letter, Barr asked Mueller if there was something, anything, inaccurate about Barr’s letter, to which Mueller ultimately said that “nothing in the Attorney General’s March 24 letter was inaccurate or misleading,” according to a Justice Department spokeswoman telling the Washington Post.
Rather, Mueller “expressed frustration over the lack of context and the resulting media coverage regarding the Special Counsel’s obstruction analysis.”
In other words, Mueller doesn’t think the media was harsh enough on Trump about all of this and should’ve discerned that Trump did obstruct EVEN THOUGH HE HIMSELF DID NOT DARE CHARGE TRUMP OF OBSTRUCTION!
But that is how slimy and corrupt Mueller is: he did not dare say that Trump obstructed, even if he did want to assert that he did. Again, in his report, he mentions an awful lot of things that in his mind ought to constitute obstruction, but he knew better than to use them as actual reasons to charge him. Why? Because none of them were actual cases of obstruction.
As a reminder, what Mueller counts as obstruction is Trump constantly attacking the investigation as a “witch hunt”, which it was, seeing as he was being investigated despite evidence of a crime and for mere hearsay, as “witches” would often be accused in the old days. Despite the Trump administration fully cooperating with the investigation, turning over any document the Counsel asked for, Trump publicly complaining was obstruction in Mueller’s eyes. But in the eyes of the law, that is nonsense, so he knew better than to try and charge Trump with such flimsy “evidence”.
At the end of the day, Mueller is complaining that Barr isn’t doing what Mueller wanted him to do: charge Trump and be on Mueller’s side. Like a little kid complaining to his older brother that he’s not letting him win in a game, Mueller is complaining to Barr that he is not siding with him.
Now, personally, I don’t think Mueller ever expected Barr to side with him. Barr, even before becoming AG, had voiced his complaints about the Mueller investigation. I think Mueller’s letter and the leak to the media the day before his Senate hearing (which was an embarrassment to the Democrats, but they likely think it went superb) were simply meant to drive the narrative that Barr is corrupt somehow and lied about Mueller’s findings. It’s nothing more than a smear campaign against a man who is simply doing his job.
The fact that the hashtag “#ImpeachBarr” was trending on Twitter and that Schiff and other Democrats called for either his impeachment or resignation is a sign of that theory being true.
The Left is simply enamored with that word, aren’t they? They want to impeach Trump and then impeach Pence; they want to impeach Kavanaugh and now, they want to impeach Barr. None of them have done anything even remotely close to what would be grounds for impeachment, and support for impeachment of Trump is very low right now (around 37%, last time I checked).
But again, Barr did nothing wrong. To Mueller’s own account, Barr did not say anything in his letter that was inaccurate. Barr simply summarized the bottom-line findings of the Mueller report, which were no collusion and no obstruction. He’s just Mueller’s fall-guy for Mueller not having charged Trump with obstruction.
The Left desperately and sickeningly wanted Mueller to find something, anything, they could use to remove Trump from office. Mueller utterly failed at doing that, so he’s doing his best to save his own ass: redirect the Left’s ire towards Barr.
Again, Mueller is utterly corrupt. Now, I think I can understand his reasons for doing this. The Left are a bunch of crooks and killers. Mueller probably didn’t want to be Seth Rich’d. He received a little bit of scorn shortly after the release of his report, with celebrities and the media berating him a little bit, and even one reporter harassing him after a church service (here’s hoping Mueller repented of his sins, but that is as likely as the Left successfully impeaching Trump). He received a scintilla, a mere infinitesimally small fraction of the ire and hatred that the Left shows towards Trump and he didn’t like it; likely couldn’t stand it one bit.
For two years, he was the Left’s very savior. People were putting Mueller Christmas decorations on their trees and buying Mueller merchandise for crying out loud! He was basically Jesus to these idolaters and wicked people. He probably fully expected his investigation to go on through 2020 and onwards if Trump won reelection. But in came Barr, an actual Attorney General, and put a deadline on Bobby’s head. His time was coming to a close and he found absolutely nothing. He knew the Left was expecting something. They had so hyped his investigation as being the definite end of the Trump administration and he had nothing. He would be destroyed if he delivered such nothingness, so he used what he could to try and hurt Trump politically, seeing as it was impossible to do so legally.
He had no collusion, that much he knew. Matter of fact, as more time went on, we found more evidence of the Clinton campaign colluding with Russians AND NO ONE WAS EVEN LOOKING FOR THAT! He had no collusion, but he could try and make somewhat of a dubious case for obstruction. He, again, did not have enough to bring up charges against the President, so he knew he was screwed. The Left would’ve seen his report, done a double-take and asked what the hell that was. He was supposed to destroy Trump but he brought them absolutely nothing. All Mueller could do at that point is have the AG be his patsy.
Mueller knows perfectly well that saying the investigation was a witch hunt (and everything else Mueller brought up as perhaps being obstruction but definitely cannot be) is not obstruction, but he himself could not say that. He didn’t have the full support of the intelligence community nor any support from the military to stage a coup. So, he decided to play a little bit of defense. He knew he couldn’t get Trump, but he could use the media’s stupidity and blind loyalty to him to his favor. As such, he decided to put Barr in his place as the Left’s target by leaving it up to the AG to decide on obstruction and then writing a letter to him that he knew would eventually and in a timely fashion be leaked to the media to further insinuate malfeasance on the part of Barr.
And again, that worked pretty well, as is to be expected of the media. He didn’t have to try too hard to get the media to be against Barr. But again, as much as Mueller and the Left want to smear Barr, the reality of the situation is that Mueller himself did not find collusion and obstruction and Barr was simply summarizing the key findings of the report. It was not Barr’s job to “capture the context” and tone of the report, but to summarize what the report found. Trump is not in the wrong here; Barr is not in the wrong here; the media, the Left, and Robert Mueller are in the wrong, as they always are.
What a pathetic bunch of snakes the Left is.
