The Attorney General has sent a response to Congress about their inquiry into the Mueller Report.
In this new letter, William Barr says that he will have the Mueller report redacted and to Congress by mid April, maybe sooner.
The letter also says that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is working with Barr on redaction’s. Barr also says in the letter that he will testify and answer any questions before Congress that they would like to ask.
“Also, I am aware of some media reports and other public statements mischaracterizing my March 24th, 2019 supplemental notification as a “summary” of the Special Counsel’s investigation and report. For example, Chairman Nadler’s March 25 letter refers to my supplemental notification as a “four-page summary of Special Counsel’s review.” My March 24 letter was not, and did not purport to be, an exhaustive recounting of the Special Counsel’s investigation or report.”
“As my letter made clear, my notification to Congress and the public provided, pending release of the report, a summary of its “principal conclusions”– that is, it’s bottom line. The Special Counsel’s report is nearly 400 pages long (exclusive of tables and appendices) and sets forth the Special Counsel’s findings, his analysis, and the reasons for his conclusions. Everyone will soon be able to read it on their own. I do not believe it would be in the public’s interest for me to attempt to summarize the full report or release it in serial or piecemeal fashion.”
Barr goes on in the letter to even say that the President has every right to use Executive Privilege but he has said publicly as has his council that they will leave that up to me.
Just reported by John Roberts of Fox News, the President’s attorney Rudy Giuliani says they will not request executive privilege and feel completely conformable with the Attorney General fully handling the matter.
It looks like America finally has a real Attorney General once again.
