After watching Barr today evade, elude and not promise the full release of the Mueller report,

it's time for a copy of the report to fall off a truck in front of the Washington Post and New York Times office. We will never get the truth from this guy. Trump has finally got his Roy Cohn.

1. Somebody needs to open the spigots at the DOJ.

8. And the IRS and the FBI/CIA

All of whom, I presume, have plenty of spillable info going back years on Mr. Trump.

3. Look for zero policy to move this week.

Easter Break is coming and that is more important than Policy. Expect action maybe early May.

Everyone seems to posturing and getting their Campaign Video clips in place for the next Campaign.

And one wonders why the nation is pissed.

4. Whistle blower protection

I hope whoever leaks it, takes responsibility for leaking it, comes out in public and asks for mercy from the American people. He/she will become a national hero. This thing needs to come out now! By the time it gets through the courts it will be so muddied up that the conclusions will be debatable and therefore useless.

9. Here is my thinking....Who ever does leak it will be a target.

If they come out, and no one else is implicated in the leak there will be no question as to its source and whether the dems are involved somehow. The leaker can claim he did it for the good of the country, because of what he knows is in the report and the cover-up that we are witnessing. Yes, they might face charges, lose their career, but they will also have virtue on their side and a grateful nation. They can point to how much they are putting themselves at risk and why they did it. Self sacrifice to save our country.

If the report is as damning as we think, and the leak gets the truth out, who leaked it won't matter as much as what the report says. If they leak it anonymously, the story will be about the leak (who, what, where) and the deep state and the dems.

14. The safe way to do it is anonimously

The report can be crosschecked and verified by the members of Mueller’s team. There is no need to put anyone in danger since it can be proven to be accurate.

But it sure would be nice if it was leaked!

6. Yes, we all want it ASAP, but the longer it takes, Barr goes farther out on his limb?

 

I mean, let him insist that there's nothing in it. Then release it and call him out.

7. Barr was always ready for Prime Time

Cool, calm, and arrogant . The glare of the TV lights and pressure of sitting before a panel affect him not. And his experience fixing the Iran/Contra mess makes him uniquely qualified.

10. Time for another Deep Throat.

Barr’s sole reason for seeking this job was to protect Trump. Barr was describing a Catch 22 today in that he said Mueller did not indict so the issue was settled. But the DOJ refuses to indict a sitting president no matter how many crimes he commits so how did Mueller’s lack of indictment resolves any issue when he was not allowed to indict?

That’s truly circular thinking: the policy is that you’re not allowed to indict but since you didn’t indict the president is innocent of all charges!

19. Exactly. Barr himself IS "Catch 22" in this instance.

16. I agree...what was the point?

I think Barr is spinning, slow walking, whitewashing, covering up. Don't give him a chance to do it more than necessary. We havent seen the report, he has. I don't even think he has any right to comment on it, and we shouldn't give him the platform. Even after the redacted report comes out, he shouldn't be involved in spinning it. he is irrelevant to the discussion, this is the peoples business and not his. Barr is a side show and a distraction from the main issue. Whether the redactions are legal? What basis did he use to make them? does the congress have the right to the full report? all of this plays into the reps hands. We need the full report...period...Barr should shut up. he wasn't there when Mueller team wrote it. he should be dismissed and treated as the toady he is.

15. Hate to sound like a Debbie downer but, this whole report will be given to the

Supreme Court, after the AG, the White House, and any other entities that refuse to comply to subpoenas and really by that time the American people will really not care anymore. That is the strategy they’re using now. I so hope i’m wrong.

18. Bezos should print the Mueller report

YES, Michael Moore mentioned that if the release of the Mueller report went awry that Mueller should drop it off at every major news outlet It would be a win for Bezos and a win for the American people because Barr will never let us see it. However, I heard that ANYONE can request this report via the FOIA.

20. Anyone can. But having dealt a small bit

in FOIS world as a federal employee, it will be redacted in accordance with “regulations” and law. (Read: by the DOJ)
