Is he allowed to ask for the grand jury testimony to be released?
I believe he is asking for this but I do not know how much clout he carries to get that done. Or perhaps he doubts he would be met with candor.

declined to go out on a limb and make a declination/prosecution decision, so...


Do you support the idea that you cannot indict a sitting president?

because the DOJ is supposed to be non partisan thats why.

Barr is not trumps lawyer.


You are missing the point. Barr is not an attorney for congress either. He is the bi-partisan attorney general and he disagrees based on law with the request being needed as Nadler requested.

Thus, Congress needs to advise their staff attorneys to make the court request for a judge review of their request or amend the legislative amendment that they created to redact grand jury testimony.

Of course he is, anyone can - and in fact there is already one lawsuit filed to force the release of it.

It doesn't matter how much clout he has, all he needs to do is file a request (or possibly a lawsuit) with the court.

Of course, even though he is an attorney, he seems to be pretty clueless, so may have to get some help.

It is irrelevant, since the SC deferred this decision to the AG, and the AG said they (he and RR) made their decision without regard to this unwritten policy.

But I'll ask you - do you understand the concept that this unwritten policy is based on?
