The most important answers to the battle of the Mueller Report

In the coming days intends to pass U.S. attorney General William Barr to the U.S. Congress a revised version of the Mueller report. It is hardly to be expected that the Democrats in the Congress be satisfied with.

you require the full, non-redacted report, the special investigator in the Russia affair, Robert Mueller , at 21. In March the Minister of justice has passed. Including all evidence and documents that underlie his remarks. The heads of the competent committees in the house of representatives have set Barr a deadline to meet the requirement. They expired at the beginning of April.

The most important questions and answers about the expected legal battle:

What do the Democrats hope to gain from the full report?
The leader of the Democrats in the house of representatives, Nancy Pelosi, has it brought this week to the point: you are familiar with Mueller, but not Minister of justice, Barr. In other words, the Democrats want to make an image of your own, and not only a Minister of justice leaving, the Trump just getting into office has brought.

the independence of The judiciary in the United States is a great Good, why the Democrats have so little confidence in the Minister?
Barr was already under the in the autumn of deceased U.S. President George H. W. Bush, Minister of justice and brings a lot of legal experience.

However, he has sent in the past summer, without being asked his assessment of the Mueller investigation to the Ministry of justice. In it, he comes to the conclusion that the Mueller investigation against Trump because of the suspicion of the judiciary went on disability. This came after Trump fired in may of 2017, the first FBI chief, James Comey, the investigation was then in charge of the Russia, and later, also the Comey used special investigator Mueller wanted to dismiss. Of which only the General counsel of the White house Trump just could not stop. Barr found that the President had the right to do so. This unsolicited analysis was the ticket to the Ministry of justice, faith in the Democrats.

Barr has made in the past week, also for a considerable irritation. In a congressional hearing, he said, the FBI might have in 2016 spied the Trump "campaign". The Democrats accused Barr to talk about Trump to the mouth. The U.S. President had set some time ago espionage-rumours in the world, as a victim of dark machinations of a of Democrats to go through to the FBI to stand.

In the hearings, Barr also refused to trump's statement is almost back, the investigations had been a "witch hunt" against him. He could only to the Declaration, that it was a question of the point of

Not least of all, employees of Mueller's investigation team are apparently not happy with Barr's letter. According to media reports, you should have said that your report can bring Trump in much bigger trouble than the summary let suspect.

How has Barr as the Mueller report?
The Minister of justice has already submitted two days after he had the almost 400-imagine ... a strong report in his hands, his four-page summary to Congress. Barr provided two conclusions:

1. Mueller has found no evidence that Trump or one of his people in the election campaign of 2016, have intentionally works with the Russian government. to win the US election. No one doubts that this is so. Only few have expected that Mueller is a Smoking Colt in the hands, on every doubt sublime proof, that there was a wilful cooperation with Russia. There are all thing in dozens of clues that it might have been different.

court records about more than 100 Meetings with Russian officials are known, in which at least one Trump, a related party was involved. The Democrats hope that you can find on the known facts, there is evidence in the report that at least the political end walls, that there has not been cooperation, even if these instructions have the force of proof, in court.

2. Mueller declared Trump in the question of the obstruction of Justice is neither guilty, nor to him of all guilt free. This decision has, however, adopted Barr. He decided that there was no reason to keep track of Trump more for obstruction of Justice. His justification: As the US President not to have made the criminal cooperation with Russia is guilty, he had no motive to obstruct justice. This is from the point of view of the Democrats, at least a daring Thesis. In his summary, Barr provides no evidence for or against his decision. This is for the Democrats, that's reason enough to want the full report to see.

Trump has unchallenged – distorting, but from Barr – the Four-page letter from Barr to as the "total rehabilitation" of his Person.

Why want to ask Barr to the Congress a full report available?
He makes certain rules of confidentiality, a claim, which is the Ministry of justice allegedly committed. The unwritten law that any results of the investigations on persons not indicted. In consequence this would mean that about Trump, not a word is to be read in the redacted report.

The Democrats, however, argue that this case is stored due to the large public interest differently. In addition, were treated in the recent US history, reports of special investigators always open. Two such reports. A to the Watergate affair from President Richard Nixon. And to President Bill Clinton's Sex affair with an Intern in the White house. In the report of special Prosecutor Kenneth Starr is to Clinton's Sex-affair even spicy Details of the Affair could be found. However, the publication rules for future reports of the special investigators have been significantly tightened.

in the second Argument of Barr is that acts in Secret to the Grand Jury were not in principle intended for the Public. A Grand Jury is one composed of civilians, composite panel, which reviews findings of the prosecution and their witnesses. The Grand Jury then decides, together with the prosecutors, whether the cases end up in court.

special investigator Robert Mueller has worked extensively with a Grand Jury. Several dozen indictments have emerged as a result. The Grand-Jury records should not be allowed to be public, then the editorially revised Mueller is likely to be report quite thin.

The Democrats say that a Grand Jury may be at the request and under certain conditions, the files free. Barr, however, has not explained, he had first to ask for a release.

What do the Democrats in order to get the complete report?
With its majority in the key committees in the house of representatives, you can subpoena the report formally "". The judiciary Committee has authorized its Chairman Jerrold Nadler, a legally binding subpoena. The summons is the sharpest weapon the Democrats have in their Arsenal. However, you can not arbitrarily use.

Refuses about Barr still, the Mueller report for the Congress to release, would have to pull Nadler before the court. This takes time and eats resources. The Democrats may soon be forced, also Trumps Tax returns via subpoena request, the administration tried to delay, the Ministry of Finance. This dispute will probably end up in court. According to experience, are more than two or three such summons procedure in a legislative period of only two years.

another variant is that at least the intelligence committees to be given in Congress complete insight into all of Mueller's files. You could be guaranteed about the Patriot Act called the you virtually unlimited access to information of foreign intelligence services. There's a lot of investigation relates to the Mueller-the Russian state, it could be a bridge to the full Mueller report, writes Vicki Divoll in the "New York Times". Divoll was from 2001 to 2003 legal Advisor to the intelligence Committee in the Senate.

the crux of The matter: The Mueller report would almost certainly be open to the public. The US citizens could do no own picture of the content.

The Democrats could also request the special investigator Robert Mueller, at a hearing, or?
Yes, it is only doubtful if it will help much. Mueller would have to obtain a statement of approval from the Ministry of justice. And will be subject to conditions. With the probable result that Mueller is no longer allowed to say in front of the Congress, as in the summary of Barr or the revised report. Similar is to be expected when Barr himself will be subpoenaed to talk about the Mueller report. (Süddeutsche Zeitung)
