WaPo: ‘The Plot Just Thickened On William Barr and the Mueller Report’
William Barr went overboard minimizing the results of the Mueller report, so that Trump could take a victory lap and Drudge could proclaim “Trump Wins!” in a banner headline. Unfortunately, he went too far and now there’s a backlash. Both the Washington Post and New York Times ran pieces Wednesday on how inadequate the Barr summary was, and that prompted a response from the Department of Justice itself, just a few hours ago.
The message from Mueller’s team, whether deliberate, seems to be: Stay tuned, and be wary of William Barr.
So much for Barr’s credibility. Does he remember what happened to Nixon’s AG, John Mitchell? He was convicted of conspiracy, perjury, and obstruction of justice. Just another echo from Watergate.
