Except they actually do act as such in the case of an impeachment, as after a person is impeached by the House, the Senate tries the defendant. In the case of the President the Chief Justice presides in the trial in the Senate.


At that point, they would have all the documents (unredacted) to allow them to try the defendant fairly.

In providing the "unredacted" report would barr not be breaking the law?
From what I read and watched the report less grand jury info is available to congress in a scif, tho it appears none of the dems have taken the opportunity to review it.
So no answer about the committee rules allowing for others than senators or representatives?
The word unprecedented has been used for such. Why the need for unprecedented measures when mueller did not recommend any charges against the president or his campaign staff?

but 50% of them are lawyers?
was barr to be submitted to practicing lawyers?
I was under the impression he was to testify before the senate judiciary committee?
Do the committees rules allow for people to be questioned by others than the senators?


Again, he should be questioned by seasoned lawyers who know how to play the gobbeldygook game, that is, after reading the unredacted report.


What crime has Barr supposed to have committed? Hearings done by congress are expressly to determine whether to indict someone. Then there will be an actual trial where the accused may be question by a prosecutor and attorneys. While at the same time, the accused may have their own attorneys present to respond.


Let's wait to hear from Mueller as to why he had a problem with Barr's summary.

Poor Mueller, it seems so obvious he was hoping to stay off the Dem radar and left Barr to face the shameful slandering. Now, it is all thrown back on him. The Dems will be crucifying his credentials when he doesn't say what they want him to say?

But hey, Senator Graham is writing to Mueller and requesting him to clarify that too in writing. I imagine it will still not make the Dems happy, especially in the House.

what trial and what defendants are you referencing?
do you understand that mueller made no recommendation for charges in his report?
do you also understand the AG and deputy AG also made no recommendation for charges?

so what trial are you referencing?

How can congress conduct a true and complete investigation of any wrongdoing without the unredacted report?

Wasn't it the Office of Legal Council's recommendations that Mueller followed? That being, that a sitting president cannot stand trial?

I subscribe to not using superficial thinking and knee jerk emotional whining.

The summary was put out to the media in such a way as to confuse.

Are you suggesting the grand jury info should be provided to congress? Secret grand jury info?

Did that tell mueller to not make a recommendation?
Could you reference that specific point in the OLC recommendations for me, I missed that?

If a sitting president can not stand trial, what would be the point of charging him with suspected obstruction of justice? For the s***ts and giggles?

That is simply your opinion.
No recommendations to charge were made.
The rest is spin.
You don't like the spin, I can understand and sympathize with that.
There is no confusion in the fact that no recommendations to charge were made by mueller, and none made by the AG and Deputy AG.

Or are you questioning the AG's authority to do such?

Well, if congress feels the need to further hearings then let's hear a longer unconfusing summary from the horses mouth.

Who said such?
Point me to the SCOTUS decision of such please?

Mueller could have recommended charges, and the President could stand criminal trial for them after his term.
Or the congress can impeach him.

Mueller seems to have failed you.
Too bad it seems Barr is being held accountable for what mueller did not do.

From what I can ascertain from the Barr hearing, is that his summary basically lied to the American people as to the true state of affairs here. Enter Mueller to clarify or not, we shall see.

Barr did not lie. He summarized Mueller's 19page summary down to 4 pages. Using Mueller's own words in attempt to appease Congress and America why conclusions were made. Then he released the full 448 page report that included those same 19page summaries.

The only ones lying to America right now are the Democrats in Congress and the liberal media. It is shameful.
