Justice Dept will give House SOME Intel Mueller probe material if Schiff drops Barr contempt threat

The Justice Department on Tuesday said it would provide the House Intelligence Committee with some materials related to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation as long as the panel dropped its threat to pursue an “enforcement action” against Attorney General William Barr.

The department made the offer in a three-page letter to Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) one day before the committee is slated to vote on what he has described as an “enforcement action” against Barr. Schiff has not said what shape the action would take.


The Justice Department has said it would allow the full committee to review a less redacted version of the first volume of the report — the section discussing Russian interference in which Schiff’s panel is primarily interested — and identify an initial tranche of materials the committee is demanding that it would prioritize for review and disclosure to the committee.

On Tuesday, Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd said the department is willing to “expedite” access to foreign intelligence and counterintelligence information identified by the committee as a priority if the panel confirms that it will not move forward on a vote on an enforcement action.

6. So some of the material they withheld just as a bargaining tool!

Game playing with the Constitution is clearly proof of bad faith.
would anyone buy a used car from William Barr? Can’t ever rely on his word.
