I continue to believe that there is something odd is going on. Mueller continues his grand jury and, now, we are told they will release the redacted version the first week of the congressional 2 week hiatus so they can go home and work at keeping their jobs as, obviously, going back on weekends, and a couple of other days is not enough. It should also be noted that said congressional travel would be handled by the United States Airforce and free to all members of congress, their families and important aids.

I will probably continue down this pass until the redacted release, especially if 80% of it is redacted. Another might be that redactions are explained as forced on them that redacted, said redcations being based on a newly discovered secret law, written in 1792, which forces such redactions as well as the law's secrecy. In the efforts to be more transparent the redactors also supplied the original letter, of the forefathers, which explained that they considered such secrecy to be necessary due to the obvious danger to the human psyche should the facts become known to all.

Interesting:

Barr Has Summarized a Controversial Legal Document Before

Back in 1989 William Barr issued a summary of an opinion of the Justice Departmentís Office of Legal Counsel, justifying the abduction of Manuel Noriega. He even went before congress and testified, but refused to give them the actual opinion. Several years later, they got around to subpoena the opinion and then the next President released it. Barr's "summary" was very misleading and left some major points out! Of course he was no longer in office because of the Bush 1 to Clinton transition, but was never charged with perjury or Contempt of Congress. So don't be surprised if Barr's "summary" is totally misleading. He's done it before.

Not to brag, but I predicted that you would predict it, I think several days before that! I just didn't tell anyone...

Oh, lots of us predicted Barr was not telling the whole truth. But the story about his history pretty much nails his MO.

Robert Mueller's report is out (CNN)

Quote:
"With respect to whether the President can be found to have obstructed justice by exercising his powers under Article II of the Constitution, we concluded that Congress has the authority to prohibit a President's corrupt use of his authority in order to protect the integrity of the administration of justice."

"Although the investigation established that the Russian government perceived it would benefit from a Trump presidency and worked to secure that outcome, and that the campaign expected it would benefit electorally from information stolen and released through Russian efforts, the investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in the election interference activities,"

The report states that the evidence obtained ďabout the about the President's actions and intent presents difficult issues that prevent us from conclusively determining that no criminal conduct occurred.Ē
