In order to provide lawmakers with greater transparency into special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, the Department of Justice placed a less-redacted version of his report in a secure room on Capitol Hill, and granted access to that room to congressional leaders of both parties, as well as the chairmen and ranking members of intelligence and judiciary committees in the House and Senate.
The entirety of volume II of the Mueller report, save for two full and seven partial lines, which were redacted to protect grand jury secrecy in keeping with federal law is available to them. This amounts to 99.9% of the report available, but so far, not a single Democrat has taken the time to read it.
Rather than examining the entirety of volume II of the Mueller report, save for the aforementioned lines, Democrats have advanced a vote to hold attorney general William Barr in contempt on the grounds that the two-time attorney general has cynically orchestrated a wholesale coverup.
As assistant attorney general William Boyd argued in a letter sent to House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerry Nadler on Monday, Democrats’ refusal to examine the most transparent version of the report that Barr can legally make available, “naturally raises questions about the sincerity of the committee’s interest in and purported need for the redacted material.”
Representative Chrenshaw also made a strong point about their refusal to examine the documents available to them calling them “dishonest”.
Americans should know this fact: AG Barr has given top Democrats access to 99.9% of the Mueller report on obstruction. But they refuse to read it.
The truth is in plain sight.
The effort to convince us that there’s a cover up is dishonest. Enough.
