3. Good they're moving forward on the contempt vote.

I have no doubt that the DOJ was hoping this deal would stop the vote and give them more time to delay turning over documents.

10. Congress has a 4th of July absence (about a week in total)

followed by the entire month of August recess. Not sure if this also holds true for Department of Justice.

6. Probably

And things will be left out intentionally. Then another eight weeks to get those. And on and on it goes with the stalling.

12. Link to an article:

The DOJ agreed to turn over key evidence from Mueller's obstruction case, just one day before a scheduled House contempt vote against Attorney General William Barr

https://www.businessinsider.com/doj-mueller-evidence-house-judiciary-committee-barr-contempt-2019-6

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler's office said in a statement that the DOJ will begin turning over key evidence related to the former special counsel Robert Mueller's obstruction-of-justice case to the committee on Monday. The documents will be made available to all members of the judiciary committee.

"These documents will allow us to perform our constitutional duties and decide how to respond to the allegations laid out against the President by the Special Counsel," Nadler said in his statement.

"Given our conversations with the Department, I will hold the criminal contempt process in abeyance for now," he added. "We have agreed to allow the Department time to demonstrate compliance with this agreement. If the Department proceeds in good faith and we are able to obtain everything that we need, then there will be no need to take further steps."

But he noted that if the department withholds "important information" from the committee, lawmakers will have "no choice but to enforce our subpoena in court and consider other remedies."

14. DOJ is probably just leading Nadler on here is my take.

Nadler is being suckered.

13. Bet this is just another lie and ploy.

They will only release selected materials, anything that can be even remotely considered as excuse for drumpf and will keep hidden everything else. I'd be surprised if a lot of totally redacted material or blank pages aren't included - they just can't help acting like the traitorous child they represent.

These are not the only materials Barr is withholding - they need to hold him in contempt if every single thing isn't produced, not just this one thing that's most likely a head fake anyway.

16. Exactly,

 

the good stuff is in the grand jury testimony and none of that is being released.

I like the use of the word "key" in the headline, watch how often that is repeated by the M$M.

18. Nadler said that the bully agreed to give him 1/2 of the chocolate in Nadler's lunchbox

The bully said he would eat the rest, but Nadler is very happy with 1/2 of the chocolate. The bully promised, he has not given it to him yet, but he promised he would, the bully will take a byte of the chocolate then give what is left to Nadler...breaking!

20. Nadler could get Trump to admit in writing to crimes, resign, plead guilty, and turn himself in

at the local federal penitentiary, and some people will complain that Trump's prison jumpsuit isn't orange enough.

23. Means nothing yet

Until they know it ALL was given to them because this administrations lack of cooperation , and being dishonest about everything, but this could just be more conspiring to cover up facts, and more obstruction.
