The special prosecutor considered that the minister of justice omitted the ”context” and ”substance” when he first presented the Muellerrapporten at the end of march by a fyrasidigt PM to congress.
The conclusion comes as no surprise to the countless commentators who argued just this in the tv sofas and newspapers – that the minister of justice made a partial and highly simplified summary.
as we found out that Robert Mueller, in other words, initially shared some of these positions. Mueller's dissatisfaction with the summary was formulated in a letter which he sent to the Barr a couple of days after the attorney general's summary at the end of march. But it is only now that the letter leaked to the Washington Post.
mueller's dissatisfaction raises the temperature in the aftermath of the report. During Wednesday testified William Barr before the senate justitieutskott and maybe he should do the same before the house of representatives committee on Thursday. It is at the moment unclear if he is going to pop up. But if he does it will teach the Democrats leading the committee to use mueller's letter as ammunition and pepper pine Needles with questions about his simplified interpretation of the Rysslandsrapporten.
to defend herself with pine Needles against Mueller before the committee on justice. Barr said that Mueller had been offered the opportunity to read his summary before he sent it to congress, but that Mueller had waived the offer. And to mueller's objections in the letter was not about that Barr would have communicated the misstatements to congress, but that Mueller wanted to have their own summaries as soon as possible.
Mueller himself may have to testify before congress in may. An escalation in rhetorical battle between Barr and Mueller would be the mumma of the democratic politicians who find the content in the report is alarming. And who think that Trumps the incorrect conclusion of the content has come to overshadow what Mueller actually said: that he, under the existing guidelines either could not identify or exclude the possibility that Trump has committed abuse in a court of law, but that the issue can be decided in congress.
Congress is the body in american politics who can initiate impeachment against the president, avsättningsprocess by a kind of political trial.
therefore continues heavily in the american public sphere. Many Trumpallierade republicans tried to smear Mueller as a biased investigator during the course of the work, but after the report was published, it has, on the contrary, placed themselves behind him, because the 448-page compendium does not contain any new criminal charges or lowering the Trump of conspiring with Russia in a way that can be described as criminal.
Mueller said never in the media, which is frustrating because the american people have many questions. At the same time will receive a letter as it has now discovered a certain weight, because it is not formulated to get throw the pie in the tv.
whether they intend to try to push a riksrättsprocess against Trump with Rysslandsrapporten as a basis. This would mueller's interpretation of its own report to weigh heavily as an argument.
Elizabeth Warren, candidate for president and senator at the vänsterflanken, has endorsed the requirement for impeachment. During the Tuesday, said Joe Biden, the former vice-president, which just published its campaign for 2020 – that the Democrats have no other choice than to initiate impeachment, if Trump continues to refuse to cooperate in the investigations of him, his family and staff that the house of representatives have floated in the wake of the Rysslandsrapporten.
, which controls the senate, where a riksrättsprocess would be settled, still stands behind the president. Senator Lindsey Graham, the republican chairman of the committee on justice, explained in his opening speech in the committee on Wednesday that Rysslandsutredningen is complete. The president acquitted. Point end.
Mueller had to interrogate anyone he wanted to, got so much resources and time that he asked for. Mueller chose for himself that letting William Barr to take a final view in the matter of abuse in a court of law. And this he did to Trump's advantage. What's more?
seriously undermine this republican version of the Rysslandsutredningen. The democrats can threaten impeachment, but as long as the Republicans sit on the preferential right of interpretation of the report, and controlling the senate, impeachment enough, in practice, a distant threat.
the Democrats need more from Mueller to change the republican electorate's understanding of the report.
