President Trump Takes Aim At Mueller AGAIN As Report Release Draws Near

Some legal experts have said the counterintelligence probe Mueller inherited from Comey may prove more significant than his criminal inquiry, though it is not clear to what degree counterintelligence findings will be included in the report.

Trump launched an attack on the team that produced the Mueller report as he accused them of "leaking" information to the press.

Allegations last week that the US justice chief played down serious evidence of illegal obstruction by Trump in special counsel Robert Mueller's final report are fueling demands that he release the entire, unexpurgated document to Congress.

While Donald Trump does the happy dance and crows that he's been "completely and totally exonerated" for all we know the butcher, the baker and the candlestick maker may have been exonerated as well, or maybe not. "There's no way those two good lawyers would have written that kind of letter if there's any issue", Giuliani said on "Face the Nation" Sunday, referring to Attorney General William Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who authored the four-page summary of Mueller's conclusions. In his full report, Mueller laid out the evidence for and against obstruction of justice charges, but did not offer his own conclusion.

"You can spend hours parsing the Carr statement", Miller wrote, referring to the Mueller team spokesman Peter Carr, "but given how unusual it is for any DOJ office to issue this sort of on the record denial, let alone this office, suspect it means the story's core contention that they have evidence Trump told Cohen to lie is fundamentally wrong".

Nadler's appearance comes after a week of media reports that Mueller's team is not happy with Barr's summary of the 22-month-long probe into whether the Donald Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation to help him win the 2016 presidential election. If he can keep Democrats' narrative focused on the Mueller report, Parcells believes it could be to his benefit.

"Prosecutors generally take a broad view of what constitutes grand jury information in order to avoid inadvertently disclosing it, but here there's a strong counterbalancing interest in ensuring that everything that can come out does come out, " Bies said.

In the weeks before Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort was sentenced in March to 7-1/2 years in prison mostly for financial crimes related to millions of dollars he was paid by pro-Russia Ukrainian politicians, Mueller's team provided hints about what their pursuit of him was really about. Barr also has said he planned to redact material related to intelligence-gathering sources and methods.

Collins asked Nadler, who leads the Democratic majority that has the power to convene hearings, to invite Mueller to appear during the week of April 22.

Barr has faced criticism since penning his letter that he unduly sanitized the full report in Trump's favor, including on the key question of whether the president obstructed justice.

The Justice Department declined to comment on the requests by the members of Congress. What remains to be seen is how much of the report will be kept from public view.
