Giuliani: Going to See 'No Collusion' From Mueller Report
Apr 15 2019
According to the report, "Nunes' accusations of misconduct are aimed at a slew of former Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department officials, who he alleges committed crimes in their pursuit of allegations that President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign conspired with Russians to influence the election".
"We also need to see the report", said Nadler, "because it may be that Mueller decided not to prosecute for various reasons ... but there still may have been proof of some very bad deeds and very bad motives, and we need to see that, and the public needs to see that". According to the summary, Mueller found no collusion with Russian Federation but made no definitive conclusions on obstruction of justice.
Barr and deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein said they had determined that a criminal charge against Trump was not appropriate, based on evidence gathered by Mueller.
Attorney general William Barr is expected to release a redacted version of the Mueller report to Congress in the coming days.
Key House Democrats didn't want to wait and had initially demanded it be made public by April 2.
Axios reported some of the claims that Trump has been fully exonerated might not be what Americans see when the report is released.
Then, the next day, before a panel of the Senate Appropriations Committee, Barr stoked a whole new controversy when he said he'd launched his own informal inquiry into the origins of the FBI's initial counterintelligence investigation into Russian Federation and the 2016 Trump campaign, which began the summer of that year at the height of the White House race.
Attorney General Barr is likely going to release the "vast majority" of the Mueller report, including showing how it reached its "no collusion" conclusion and begging the question why was there an investigation "in the first place", according to President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani. The report should be released this week, but will have redactions. Later in the hearing, Barr clarified that he has no "specific evidence" of such surveillance but that he has "questions about it" and "concerns about various aspects of it".
