John Mitchell, Alberto Gonzales..and now Bill Barr

I happen to believe that the entire Mueller report has already been leaked to House Democrats. For one thing, unless it was typed on an old IBM Selectric and mailed via carrier pigeons a la John Wick, it has probably been hacked at least a half dozen times. At least one of the hackers would have shared it with someone who would have given it to a prominent Democrat or Democratic Party supporter or an enemy of Donald Trump (and there are many). Plus, there are plenty of media outlets that would be wiling to pay a hacker large sums of money for the real thing. What a scoop!.

So, why is no one claiming to have the report yet? For one thing, that would give Donald trump and his Republican stooges a chance to demand an investigation. "Who leaked?" would be Fox News' response to "Trump Obstructed Justice." Better to sit tight until the official release date. And then, those who are already pouring over it can quickly announce the evidence of obstruction and issue subpoenas to those who will be called upon to testify before Congress.

But there is another possibility, one that Barr ought to be considering as he prepares to redact the investigation report to please his boss, Donald Trump. The Democratic House could be setting Barr up. Allow him to redact everything that might indicate that Trump obstructed justice (we already know he did, from the firing of Comey to his illegal witness tampering) and then compare the document he presents to Congress with the real one. If the Barr document carefully trims every evidence of Trump's obstruction of justice that makes the current Attorney General an accessory to obstruction of justice. And there is no easier target for a Congressional investigation and impeachment effort than an Attorney General who breaks the law, because the Attorney General is the law and can not plead ignorance or act like an idiot who did not know better or even plead the Fifth.

Prediction--first head to roll will be Barr's himself unless he is very, very careful.

1. I like how you posit your theory.

I hope you're right.

3. Excellent analysis and theory.

Barr is part of a cover-up, if not the entire cover-up at this point.

It goes to Rachel M's statement tonight that there is an air of panic in his subsequent letters he's released this week following his "summary."

Related (from Wikipedia): On February 21, 1975, Mitchell [Nixon's AG], who was represented by the criminal defense attorney William G. Hundley, was found guilty of conspiracy, obstruction of justice, and perjury and sentenced to two and a half to eight years in prison for his role in the Watergate break-in and cover-up, which he dubbed the "White House horrors."
