JUST IN: Nadler makes a deal with the DOJ on Mueller report

It’s being reported now that the DOJ and Judiciary Chairman Nadler have reached a deal on the Mueller report:

WCBS – The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee says the Justice Department has agreed to turn over some of the underlying evidence from special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, including files used to assess whether President Donald Trump obstructed justice.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler says the department will begin complying with the committee’s subpoena Monday and provide some of Mueller’s “most important files.” He said all the members of the committee will be able to view them.

The Justice Department did not have an immediate comment.



We don’t know exactly what evidence will be transferred, but it has to do with the investigation into obstruction of justice.

Because of this agreement, Nadler is not going to pursue criminal contempt:

In response to the agreement, Nadler said the panel will not hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt, for now. But the House is still expected to vote on a resolution Tuesday that would empower the committee to file a lawsuit for the materials.

Despite Trump being vindicated on this, I’m sure Democrats will try to make hay out of anything they get.

Extortion.

Trump was (in essence) put on trial, found innocent by the jurors, and freed. Now the democrats want to start a new trial, with new jurors and no judge to try and burn Trump again. Sick sick sick!!! They’re trying SO HARD to get Trump reelected.

It’s their only shot at keeping the house by moving the narrative away from Trump’s success and the booming economy.

The disgusting democrats’ relentless obsession with destroying Trump at all costs is justifiable grounds to impeach every one of them.

I think Barr just walked into a trap. The Dem’s will scrutinize every document they receive, and will spin each shred of evidence as “proof” that Trump was an obstructionist. Further, the Dem’s will conveniently “leak” what they find to their willing accomplices in the media who will perpetuate these lies.

Don’t worry. They’ll keep moving that goalpost as long as they need to. Should’ve told Nadler to eat sh*t.

This is stupid. There is an election in one year. I just don’t see how an ordinary democrat doesn’t view this investigation toward impeachment as a backdoor attempt to undermine the democratic process of an election. The closer it gets to the election the worse it will look, and it will take that long to pursue this. Is the democrat electorate really that dumb, or is it the party leaders that are that dumb, or is it me?

When are the Dems going to comprehend that the average American is not buying into their failed narratives? No matter how hard the MSM is trying to push the narrative, it’s not working either.
1. Russian spy
2.Obstruction of justice
3.Mental incapacity

The average American is more interested in finding out if the Democrat Party, through Obama, illegally spied on a US citizen and Trump’s presidential campaign.

The only headline the media will report is that Barr caved to Nadler and complied with the media.

Of course, this action is exactly what Barr called for in the first place. Rather than demand from Barr what he could not legally give, he tried to get the House committee to negotiate with the DOJ for what could be shared.

So the actual headline here should be that Nadler caved, and negotiated with Barr as Barr had been requesting.

The real question is whether the DOJ is going to correct Mueller’s errors, omissions, selective editing, and other deceitful practices before turning the information over. Weissman and Mueller did everything in their power to imply Trump was guilty of obstruction. Their evidence is flimsy, but Nadler doesn’t require much to attempt his long-planned political assassination.

The fact that the report is still treated as a trustworthy source of information is just more persecution of our president.

Mueller’s report is going to have a short shelf-life. More and more information will keep coming out until both volumes of Mueller’s report are thoroughly discredited.

Mueller attempted to make the suspicions of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign look at least reasonable, even while grudgingly admitting no evidence could be found. And we’re already finding out that some of the people painted as Russian contacts were actually working for US intelligence. For instance, the Mueller report identifies Konstantin Kilimniak as Russian intelligence, but he’s been a source for the State department for years, and there’s absolutely no way Mueller could not have been aware of that. Obviously, Mueller omitted that little detail to try to make his contacts with the Trump campaign seem suspicious.

But then, it looks like the entire Russian collusion part of the investigation was meant to justify an obstruction probe against the president.

President Trump will not be impeached and the DNC’s MSM can’t get over the fact that even if they do impeach POTUS he’ll win reelection and if the house dems don’t impeach him POTUS he’ll still win reelection because the far left won’t turn out just like in 2016. Pelosi’s in a lose-lose situation when it comes to impeachment.

If the Democrats were smart they would’ve waited to do all this until about right now, and it would’ve had more effect on the election. There was never a chance of impeachment nor should there have been. As it is, I believe folks are sick and tired of this crapola. Even those who weren’t necessarily pro trump have had enough at this point. It’s gonna end up backfired and with trump winning in a landslide.

This is the Democrats cheap way of campaigning in 2020. They paint President Trump as bad constantly and use taxpayers money to do it as DNC needs cash. I despise them.

Bingo! They only know how to cheat and suborn to get elected because they know that if they could bring themselves to play fair they would lose all possibility of ever winning another election. They would soon be irrelevant and a quick footnote in history. Their plank is just that awful. The truly sad part is that they know it but keep plodding at it anyway.

The DOJ said they would release some of the underlying evidence but they didn’t say how much would be redacted. Barr isn’t going to break the law so this may not be over.
