  • Attorney General Barr's statement on the IG report

    "....The Inspector General’s report now makes clear that the FBI launched an intrusive investigation of a U.S. presidential campaign on the thinnest of suspicions that, in my view, were insufficient to justify the steps taken. It is also clear that, from its inception, the evidence produced by the investigation was consistently exculpatory. Nevertheless, the investigation and surveillance was pushed forward for the duration of the campaign and deep into President Trump’s administration. In the rush to obtain and maintain FISA surveillance of Trump campaign associates, FBI officials misled the FISA court, omitted critical exculpatory facts from their filings, and suppressed or ignored information negating the reliability of their principal source. The Inspector General found the explanations given for these actions unsatisfactory. While most of the misconduct identified by the Inspector General was committed in 2016 and 2017 by a small group of now-former FBI officials, the malfeasance and misfeasance detailed in the Inspector General’s report reflects a clear abuse of the FISA process.

    FISA is an essential tool for the protection of the safety of the American people. The Department of Justice and the FBI are committed to taking whatever steps are necessary to rectify the abuses that occurred and to ensure the integrity of the FISA process going forward....

    With respect to DOJ personnel discussed in the report, the Department will follow all appropriate processes and procedures, including as to any potential disciplinary action."

      Barr is nothing but a political hack and a Trump partisan. He misrepresented the Mueller report and now he is going after his own IG.
      We are not now that strength which in old days
      Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
      Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
      To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

          This is either a picture of Lenin or Freud.

          However, this person is just a puppet of Barr and therefore a Trump partisan.

            Did Barr and Durham take their loyalty oaths to Trump together or was that done as separate ceremonies?

                    That's debunked FAKE NEWS Bull****

                    Which material fact in the Mueller Report that Barr released was misrepresented?

                      No it isn't. Read Barr's statement and then read the report. Barr's four page 'summary' has nothing close to accuracy regarding Mueller's work.

                        I have read it Massena, and we've gone over this before.

                        You're wrong, and so far, you haven't been able to name any material fact that he misrepresented.

                        Again, please be specific, please cite a specific error in Barr's letter.

                          No, I'm not wrong and I do believe that Mueller himself negated Barr's comment. Barr will do whatever the president wants and that is not his job. He is not the president's lawyer, he represents the people of the United States, not the administration.

                            You can believe that the Earth is flat if you want, it doesn't make it true.

                            Mueller didn't "negate" Barr's letter, he advocared to release the section summaries in dribs and drabs.
                            Barr, citing the need to redact Grand Jury testimony and sensitive intelligence information, declined to release it in parts.

                            Instead, Barr pledged to release the entire report, all at once, minus required redactions.
                            Which he did, three weeks later.

                            Mueller was asked directly if Barr had misrepresented or misstated any material fact or principle conclusion, and he didn't find that Barr had done so.

                            More deflection.
                            You can't cite any misrepresentation or error on the part of Barr.

                            instead of answering the question, more mindless hyperbole and Democratic talking points.

                              Mueller's March 27th letter to Barr...

                              https://assets.documentcloud.org/doc...er-to-Barr.pdf

                              The summary letter the Department sent to Congress and released to the public late in the afternoon of March 24 did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance of this Office's work and conclusions. There is now public confusion about critical aspects of the results of our investigation. This threatens to undermine a central purpose for which the Department appointed the Special Counsel: to assure full public confidence in the outcome of the investigations.
                              Highlighted so nobody misses the key points.
