Before You Freak, Bear In Mind We Haven’t Seen Mueller Report, Only Barr Letter

It’s time to get a grip. Yes, the Mueller report came out in a fashion which is at the very least, anti-climatic if not downright depressing, one big fizzle so far. However, take a look at what has really gone on: All that has happened is that Attorney General William Barr has issued a four page summary, and the summary is being picked apart for it’s inadequacies and inaccuracies, chiefly the fact that it concludes there has been no crime committed on Trump’s part, when Mueller in fact, said the opposite. David Leonardt of the New York Times kicked in his two cents this morning, with a column, “Three Takeaways From The Barr Letter.” Takeaway One is that Barr Should Release More Information: William Barr, the attorney general, works for the president. By releasing just a short summary on a matter of such importance, he comes off as a cross between a law enforcement officer and a spin doctor. It’s certainly conceivable that parts of Robert Mueller’s full report — the one that remains secret — would need to be redacted for national security or other reasons. But Barr’s four-page summary is unacceptable. So is his vague explanation that he will release as much of the report as he can. Until we get more information, the most reasonable assumption is that Barr is trying to protect Trump by hiding the full report. Our leaders, Schumer and Pelosi, are working on getting the full report. So for the nonce, let us not despair. The Third Takeaway is Trump is Unfit For Office (We’ll get to the second takeaway for reasons which will become obvious, last) He directed a criminal conspiracy to break campaign finance laws. He has used the presidency for personal enrichment. He has undermined democracy. He has damaged America’s global standing. He has lied repeatedly to the American people. He has obstructed justice. (Barr’s statement to the contrary is brief and unpersuasive.) Everybody seems to be massively disappointed with the fact that Mueller didn’t recommend any new indictments. But take a closer look at what really took place, albeit it in not the spectacular way people wanted. The Atlantic: Barr’s letter thoroughly quelled some of the fondest hopes of the anti-Trump “resistance.” The letter revealed that Mueller closed his investigation without recommending more criminal charges, and that no further indictments are under seal, as some had speculated. That’s a great relief for Trump and his family and associates, but it’s not the end of their federal criminal jeopardy. Barr also pointed out that Mueller “referred several matters to other offices for further action.” For instance, the special counsel sent the investigation of Michael Cohen’s hush-money payments to Stormy Daniels to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, which secured Cohen’s guilty plea for federal campaign-finance violations. That office is still actively investigating the matter—we know this because it carefully redacted the details of the investigation when it released the Cohen search warrants last week. But the special counsel’s investigation was the most prominent legal threat to the president and his family, and its closure without further indictments is a major victory for him. Now, Leonardt’s Third Takeaway Is That “Trump Critics Should Keep An Open Mind About Russia.” Leonardt basically says that critics of Trump should not go down the […]

The Trump-Russia Story Is Coming Together. Here’s How to Make Sense of It

"Everything the Trump campaign told you about the connections between Trump and Russia was a lie.".. Editor’s Note: The news is coming so fast and furious, from so many sources and in so many fragments, that it takes more than a scorecard to keep up with the Trump-Russia connection. It takes a timeline — a “map,” if you will, of where events and names and dates and deeds converge into a story that makes sense of the incredible scandal of the 2016 election and now of the Trump Administration.
