As Barr pointed out that the summaries he received needed to be redacted by the staff.


That's all backpaddling. Barr could have said, on April 1, that he has received a letter from Bob Mueller, but that they were in disagreement as to the timing of the release of the executive summaries. But, he didn't, he lied instead.



As I pointed out in This response post to you, Christ was being disingenuous in asking his question. Barr answered the question asked honestly, he did not know of any inaccuracies.

What's disingenuous?

Rep Charlie Crist: “Reports have emerged recently, general, that members of the Special Counsel’s team are frustrated at some level with the limited information included in your March 24th letter, that it does not adequately or accurately necessarily portray the report’s findings. Do you know what they’re referencing with that?”

AG William: “No, I don’t.”

At that time, April 1st, unbeknownst to Congress, Barr had received 2 letters from Mueller and had had at least one phone conversation with him.

Not only was Barr being disingenuous, but he lied to Crist and he lied to Congress, on April 1st.

Christ included this in his question: does not adequately OR accurately

I don't know from the Mueller letter nor from Mueller's statement that Barr was lying by saying I don't know. No where has anyone shown me where Mueller or his team has stated that Barrs 4 page summary is inaccurate?

If Christ would have asked ONLY about the inadequacy perhaps Barr may have answered differently. Thus the question asked was answered Honestly by Barr.

Edit add: It was disingenuous because it was formed as a gotcha question no matter how Barr would answer. Have you not noticed this style of questioning in Congress? It isn't just a Dem thing, repubs do it too when they question someone they disagree with.

Crist was asking about rumors. Crist didn't know anything about any letters or phone calls at that time. Barr knew of the letter, in which Mueller actually wrote on March 27th,:
“The summary letter the Department sent to Congress and released to the public late in the afternoon of March 24 did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance of this Office’s work and conclusions. We communicated that concern to the Department on the morning of March 25.”

Barr knew that Mueller found the omission of the executive summaries as an "inadequacy".

Unbeknownst to Charlie Crist, Mueller had contacted Barr's office twice, with CONCERNS about the" inadequacies", and they had had at least one phone conversation too. We found out about the letters and that he lied about "knowing" on April 1st, when Mueller's letter was made public, on May 1st, hours before Barr's testimony. That's also when we first heard about this mysterious phone call, where Mueller and Barr are just fine, according to Barr, no disagreements at all. But lying liar Barr refuses to release the transcript of that call.

The transcripts are not needed unless Mueller states that Barr is a liar. Where is Mueller? Why is it so difficult for Congress or the media to actually ask him? Are they avoiding it because it will quickly stop this attack? Are they not ready with a backup plan of attack yet? It just screams delay, delay, delay.

He doesn't need to. Mueller can dispute it as well.

Where is he? Why isn't he clearing the air?

You recall that he has pointed out that the MSM misses the point with everything. His rare press releases stating that whatever the MSM believed was going on in the investigation, they were wrong and obviously misguided. Then Rosenstein reiterated the same thing: the the media seems to be deranged.

You are siding with those folks? The ones who Mueller and Rosenstein have already had a harsh analysis of? LOL, ok then. I guess you must be able to whip up a hell of a batch of fried crow, to like eating it so much.

They are needed, because Barr presented a supposed phone conversation, that he refuses to document, as a rebuttal to Mueller's 2 written letters outlining his concerns of inaccuracies and inadequacies.



Why is it so difficult for Congress or the media to actually ask him?


Because he's a DOJ employee. Why won't Trump let Don McGahn testify?

I do not recall. Can you please cite in Mueller's letter to Barr where he talks about the MSM, the media or the press, at all, and their misguided perceptions?

I didn't say he wrote a letter.

www.washingtontimes.com...


“What I have been telling all reporters is that many stories about our investigation have been inaccurate,” the Mueller spokesperson said. “Be very cautious about any source that claims to have knowledge about our investigation and dig deep into what they claim before reporting on it. If another outlet reports something, don’t run with it unless you have your own sourcing to back it up.”


So, what we have:

- Mueller has said he didn't disagree with Barr's assessment
- Mueller has said to not listen to news outlets with anonymous sources
- Anonymouse sources are contradicting the first bullet point above, and you are choosing to believe them.

Is that fried crow, or do you make soup from it?

Your sketchy article, that names no source, is one year old, and does not refer to the Mueller report.



Mueller has said he didn't disagree with Barr's assessment


Not according to anyone except William Barr, who conveniently pulled a phone conversation, that he refuses to document for Congress to cover for his April 1st lie to Congress.



Mueller has said to not listen to news outlets with anonymous sources


Again, I ask you to cite from the March 27th Mueller letter where Mueller says anything about the MSM, media or press and their skewed and misguided beliefs gleaned from Barr's summary. (Hint: it's not in there!)



Anonymouse sources are contradicting the first bullet point above, and you are choosing to believe them.


Again, your unsourced and sketchy article is one year old, and doesn't refer to the Mueller report, Barr's summary or the Mueller's March 27th letter.

Barr lied to Congress on April 1, 2019 and the whole world found out on May 1st.

Barr has said publicly during his press conference and this last hearing that he has no problem with Mueller speaking for himself. He has encouraged media and congress to ask him.

McGahn is legal council at the White House and entirely different than Mueller at the DOJ.

I think it's you swinging from the trees and doing mental backflips, especially with your bogus citation regarding Mueller's letter stating his and his teams concerns about the misrepresentation of their work in Barr's memo.

Barr lied to Congress. PERIOD

It doesn't matter what Barr says. It matters what Trump says, and it's Trump that is refusing to let McGahn testify. We'll see if the White House allows Mueller to testify.

Exactly. That is not the question the Dems want to focus on because they know he honestly reported Mueller's findings. So, it is best to confuse the public to ensure the focus is not on the actual details recovered in the report itself.

Republicans want to address the real conspiracy and foriegn power interference, the Dems do not.
