This is truly stunning news from both the NYT and the Washington Post, concerning the Mueller team’s reaction to Barr’s public statements. Note though that the story from the Washington Post seems to be better sourced from the SCO:

Limited information Barr has shared about Russia investigation frustrated some on Mueller’s team

Members of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s team have told associates they are frustrated with the limited information Attorney General William P. Barr has provided…according to people familiar with the matter.

But members of Mueller’s team have complained to close associates that the evidence they gathered on obstruction was alarming and significant. [emphasis added]

“It was much more acute than Barr suggested,” said one person, who, like others, spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the subject’s sensitivity.

Some members of the office were particularly disappointed that Barr did not release summary information the special counsel team had prepared, according to two people familiar with their reactions.

Summaries were prepared for different sections of the report, with a view that they could made public, the official said.

The report was prepared “so that the front matter from each section could have been released immediately — or very quickly,” the official said. “It was done in a way that minimum redactions, if any, would have been necessary, and the work would have spoken for itself.”

Mueller’s team assumed the information was going to be made available to the public, the official said, “and so they prepared their summaries to be shared in their own words — and not in the attorney general’s summary of their work, as turned out to be the case.”


Mueller needs to testify. Perhaps other Mueller team members need to testify. We cannot trust Barr!

I want to see all the Democrats tomorrow talking about these two reports and demanding to get the full report NOW! They should also demand that the Mueller summaries be released NOW!

Note also how the Washington Post story directly contradicts the shit posted by Michael Schmidt in the NYT. The NYT says Barr couldn’t publish the summaries because they contained sensitive information. The Washington Post story claims the summaries were written specifically so they’d be easy to publish.
