Does ANYONE think a Mueller report "redacted" by Barr will reflect what's really in the report?

Since Barr is hell pent on purifying Trump's image for the 2020 election and for history, to the point that he misled the public when he "summarized" the Mueller report, does ANYONE really think he's going to supposedly redact it fairly, so that what's left reflects the thrust of all of Mueller's conclusions, and lays out what happened?

Is Barr really going to let people read that Mueller concluded that Trump and his team had been stupid dupes, used and manipulated by the Russians? That's a step up from actively and knowingly conspiring with the Russians, but I doubt Barr wants the world to know how stupid Trump and his family really are. Sure, WE know. But Trumpers don't. Trump keeps telling them he's really smart, the smartest guy in any room.

If that's what Mueller concluded...that Trump was duped. Frankly, I don't see how Trump could be that naive, since he's dealth with mobsters and the fringe of the mob for years, and he himself behaves like he's a mob boss. Not stupid in that way. He took care to protect himself, not say self-incriminating things outright, even to Cohen. He's street smart.

But BARR is going to redact the report. Aren't some of the committee chairs cleared for classified intel? Can't they read the whole report?

3. No

Like everyone else, I haven't seen the report (statement of the obvious)

But all of Barr words from his 19 page memo, to his confirmation, to the non-summary summary and to his letters since, suggest he's going to redact the stuffings out of the report and make the Dems fight to see it.

Having said that, I still don't see the Republicans riding Trump in 2020 - unless they can run a 3rd candidate to eat into the Democrats support..

5. What do you mean "riding" Trump in 2020?

Do you mean you don't see the Repubs supporting him in 2020? Or do you mean you don't see them working against him?

7. I think they're playing along right now

But they will be evaluating as it goes along. They don't love Trump any more than we do. But they'll go along as long as he nominates their judges and backs their policies.

We may already be heading into a recession and it looks like a slow down in the next 12 months

Bonds inverted so it's coming. The only question is when.

The economy is keeping Trump afloat. When it turns, he's done - his polls will sink

As well, all this other crap that is going on with him, eventually folks are going to say "enough with this Gong show!"

The GOP would cut his throat in a heartbeat.

By next December, they'll have looked at their chances with Trump vs running someone new. I think the odds are by that time, someone new is going to improve their chances for the White House. So they'll find a way of cutting him loose that is least painful to them losing his base.

4. Sure, the cult does.

6. Absolutely not.

It would make things worse if a redacted version were released.
