  2. Re: Report of the Special Counsel on the Investigation Into Russian Interference in the
    2016 Presidential Election and Obstruction of Justice (March 2019)

    Dear Attorney General Barr:

    I previously sent you a letter dated March 25, 2019, that enclosed the introduction and
    executive summary for each volume of the Special Counsel’s report marked with redactions to
    remove any information that potentially could be protected by Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure
    that concerned declination decisions; or that related to a charged case. We also had marked
    an additional two sentences for review and have now confirmed that these sentences can be
    released publicly.

    Accordingly, the enclosed documents are in a form that can be released to the public
    consistent with legal requirements and Department policies. I am requesting that you provide these
    materials to Congress and authorize their public release at this time.

    As we stated in our meeting of March 5 and reiterated to the Department early in the
    afternoon of March 24, the introductions and executive summaries of our two-volume report
    accurately summarize this Offices work and conclusions. 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 Offices work and conclusions. We communicated that
    concern to the Department on the morning of March 25. There is new public confusion about
    critical aSpects of the results of our investigation. This threatens to undermine a central purpose
    for which the Department appointed the Special Counsel: to assure full public confidence in the
    outcome of the investigations. See Department of Justice, Press Release (May 17, 2017).

    While we understand that the Department is reviewing the full report to determine what is
    appropriate for public release process that our Office is working with you to complete that
    process need not delay release of the enclosed materials. Release at this time would alleviate the
    misunderstandings that have arisen and would answer congressional and public questions about
    the nature and outcome of our investigation. It would also accord with the standard for public release of notifications to Congress cited in your letter. See 28 C.F.R. 609(c) (‘the Attorney
    General may determine that public release’ of congressional notifications ‘would be in the public
    interest’).

    Sincerely yours,

    Robert S. Mueller III
    Special Counsel

  3. This is a cover up, people. Donald Trump fired Jeff Sessions because Sessions wasn’t a good enough lawyer to carry out Trump’s cover up. Trump found a lawyer who’s capable of covering this up and who had claimed that Trump did not obstruct. Trump hired this lawyer, Barr, to be his AG. Barr went ahead to do what he’s hired to do.

    This is a cover up.

    This is obstruction of justice.
