I think I know why Barr chose this week to release Mueller's redacted report.

It's because the members of Congress have left for a two week break.

Barr's hoping to take the wind out of the Congressional sails. By the time Congress is back in session, Barr is counting on this being old news.

1. And Friday is Good Friday, with some people on a holiday

IMHO, it will be released late Thursday evening...

5. Lots of ordinary Americans have better things to do over Easter weekend

than think about Trump. That's what Barr will be counting on.

6. I have better things to do every second of my existence than to

think about Trump, but I can still devote a wee bit of time to working toward his removal from office.

Said with a smile.

4. I would hope Dems Congresspeople reconvene pretty damn quick, if necessary.

I'm not sure it is necessary they are in Washington because if there is condemning info in Mueller's report, Congressfolks need to be talking to local constituents.

8. It doesn't matter when he releases it...we all know what it will say

already. It is BS...plain and simple. Anything produced by that corrupt tRump enabler will be edited and taken out of context by GOP conmen and will be trash and should be treated as such by the media. HA! That's a joke. The media will roll it out with gusto and promote it as though it were the Rosetta Stone. BREAKING NEWS!!! SPECIAL ALERT!!! "MSNBC, CNN, ...Barr says the fucking moron is exonerated by Mueller and Sarah Fuckubee is here to tell you more..."

9. He already has Trump's base thinking the whole things over

What a scam artist.
I think Barr has set things up to redact every bit of evidence against Trump with this idea that Trump was "spied on". If he claims there's an investigation going on as to how the evidence was gathered, will he not be able to redact it as part of an on going investigation? I'll bet he hides everything that shows Trump was not exonerated. Congress will have to fight tooth and nail to ever see what's really in that report.

11. That sounds like

an accurate assessment of the ongoing scam.

What a bunch of crooks, in charge of our country.

10. I think, perhaps, Speaker Pelosi would return early....

She could also call an emergency session. I can't think of a more pressing issue than the cabal of criminals burying truth by subversive acts.

15. They have events they're planning with their constituents and their own families.

Do you think they all have secure phones and can just have a conference call? Once this comes out, some of them might even need to meet in a SCIF to discuss counter-intelligence matters.

14. You have a good point. It's like a Friday 5pm drop.

I don't think it's going to help long-term though.

16. Only an idiot would think that a two week delay would change the situation.

Congress, and all of the country have waited a long time for this report. It's not going to change our expectation, or our reaction.
Lets get to it, Barr.

This may be Barr's Biggest Boner.

But they have perfectly managed this report so far. Perfectly.
