Rosenstein: Criticism of Barr’s Handling of Mueller Report ‘Bizarre’

Rosenstein: Criticism of Barr’s Handling of Mueller Report ‘Bizarre’

"Our goal is to respond as quick as we can; given the length of the report, it may take some time to respond", Sekulow said.

Attorney General Bill Barr has indicated he will hand over a restricted copy of the 400-page report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller that edits out "sensitive" details sometime next week.

"Does Mueller use any language suggesting that a reasonable prosecutor acting in her discretion could have charged President Trump with obstruction but for DOJ policy against indicting a sitting President?" he said. In it, Barr said the "special counsel's investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russian Federation in its efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election".

The president's latest comments come days after he called the probe an attempted "coup", while Barr promised to investigate FBI "spying" on Trump.

"We should see and judge for ourselves and that is for Congress to judge if the president obstructed justice or not", the New York Democrat told CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday. But there still may have been proof of some very bad deeds and very bad motives.

Since the release of Barr's summary, Trump has claimed "total exoneration, no collusion, no obstruction".

Hasen said he was hoping to learn how much cooperation there was between Russians and other foreign agents who hacked the Democratic National Committee, tried to crack into American voter registration databases or spread "dirt" on Hillary Clinton - which Donald Trump Jr. gleefully hoped to get from a Russian attorney in an infamous Trump Tower meeting. He also described the four types of redactions that the DOJ will make before releasing a version of the report to lawmakers: grand-jury information, information that would reveal intelligence sources and methods, information that affects the privacy of "peripheral players" not charged as a result of the investigation, and information that would compromise ongoing prosecutions.
