WATCH: AG Barr explains that Mueller’s problem was with the media’s INACCURATE reporting…

Attorney General Barr explained before the Senate Judiciary Committee this morning why Mueller wanted executive summaries released, and as we learned last night, it had everything to do with the media creating confusion that was inaccurate:



Barr testified under oath that Mueller’s problem with the media was that they were reading too much into his decision not to make a decision on obstruction of justice:

I asked him if he was suggesting that the March 24 letter was inaccurate and he said no, but that the press reporting had been inaccurate and that the press was reading too much into it. I asked him specifically what his concern was and he said that his concern was focused on his explanation of why he did not reach a conclusion on obstruction.

So there you go. It had everything to do with the media getting it wrong and nothing to do with Barr’s report being inaccurate or misleading.

Further, on the issue of Mueller’s decision not to reach a conclusion on obstruction of justice, AG Barr says that it had nothing to do with the OLC opinion asserting that a president cannot be indicted:

Barr kinda throws Mueller under the bus a bit here, explaining that he and his team didn’t understand why Mueller wasn’t reaching a conclusion on obstruction. This is why he and Rosenstein took it upon themselves to reach an official conclusion on it.

  1. Unfortunately, my day has not gone as planned so I really haven’t had much of a chance to listen, but I did record the hearing to listen later. Personally, I think Mueller and his team wrote the report as an impeachment tool for the Democrats because the political standard and legal standard for obstruction are different. Had Mueller said there was no obstruction the Dems would have nothing. The lack of conclusion was reached on purpose.

  2. BOOM! That should nip it in the bud but as we all know, Dems believe wishing makes things true and will never let up. It’s only going to hurt them more. They are just licking their chops waiting to see if Mueller will help them out somehow during his upcoming testimony.

  3. “Barr kinda throws Mueller under the bus a bit here, explaining that he and his team didn’t understand why Mueller wasn’t reaching a conclusion on obstruction.”

    I disagree. Mulehead and Weissmann built that “obstruction” bus then ran themselves over with it. They knew there was no reason at all for the investigation, i.e. no “collusion” by any American, let alone PDJT or his admin, at least 18 months before they reluctantly ended the investigation. At least a year and a half of trying to spin an “obstruction” charge against PDJT for an investigation that they knew should never have been undertaken. They have no one to blame but themselves.

  4. It didn’t stop the Democrats from repeatedly saying that Mueller DID complain about Barr misrepresenting what Mueller concluded AFTER this explanation was given. Not once did the Democrats acknowledge that Mueller was talking about the media.

  5. The reason why Mueller didn’t get to a conclusion was that the anti-Trump crew wanted to continue with the FAKE narrative… the LEFT and anti-Trump crew on the Right have declared Trump GUILTY until proven innocent.

    Btw, IG Horowitz’s and US Attorney Huber’s investigation are coming to a close pretty soon. I expect indictment to be handed down; starting with James “Edgar Hoover” Comey.

  6. Barr kinda throws Mueller under the bus a bit here, explaining that he and his team didn’t understand why Mueller wasn’t reaching a conclusion on obstruction.

    Kinduva good question, I would think. Wasn’t that the whole point of naming a Special Counsel?

    Easy, Mueller needed to give something to the dems to dirty Trump up for 2020.

  8. I knew this from reading here yesterday, but last night as usual, the MSM was spinning this to look bad for Trump! The msm is despicable!

    They also spun sleepy hands biden as giving an exciting speech too. I was shocked because I listened to it & he was so boring & had a hard time getting his words out. MSM is just full of self deception!

    1. @msliberty

      The MSM’s Leftist mission is to sow confusion and division… to hurt and misinform America (imo). And it’s working.

    2. I saw that clip and was shocked. Biden is way too old to run. I think people will begin seeing that. I hope his own party hammers him on the issue. I would rather Trump run against Bernie instead of Joe.

    3. @msliberty I heard that he was slurring his words, but I couldn’t tell because of poor sound quality on the radio.

      1. @dr-strangelove No, he was searching for words & what to say. The people that attended looked like they were bored as well except for ONE person that had to scream Whooo lol. It was pathetic. His voice sounded strained & old man raspy.

      2. Doc, I heard the clip fairly well and thought I was listening to Joe doing his impression of obie trying to speak off the cuff. His speech was impaired and disjointed. As an aside, the other day I met a retired 98 year-old Marine Colonel who fought in several WW2 campaigns. He makes Joe look old.

        1. If people are uninformed in this time of information in every direction it’s because they choose to be. Many simply read headlines or some Twitidiots opinion and consider themselves knowledgeable.

    2. @msliberty I heard that he was slurring his words, but I couldn’t tell because of poor sound quality on the radio.

          1. @Dr. Strangelove He really did. I had to laugh, it looked like he borrowed Trump’s spray tan 😮 😆

        1. 98? Wow, very cool. For some reason, that reminds me of hearing about the last Civil War veteran passing away when I was a kid. Doing the math, though, that can’t be right.

          Edit: I was three. Maybe not.

          1. @dr-strangelove Actually, you’re probably not. The last (undisputed) civil war veteran passed away August 2, 1956, Albert Woolson, age 106!

            1. @sheerpolitics Yep, I was three. There was another one in ’59, but he sounded a bit addled.

          2. The guy was very cool. Wounded, recuperated, and sent back to fight three times. He was part of a group of vets who volunteer as escorts for the honor flight (bringing predominantly WW2 and Korean vets) program getting accompanying folks to the WW2 memorial in DC.

    3. I saw that clip and was shocked. Biden is way too old to run. I think people will begin seeing that. I hope his own party hammers him on the issue. I would rather Trump run against Bernie instead of Joe.
