Should the Mueller Report be released to Congress & the public?

Politics Nothing goes with politics quite like crying and complaining, and we're a perfect example of that.

Should the Mueller Report be released to Congress & the public?

I seriously question if even one of the resident LIBs here has taken the time to read Barr's letter and see where he cites what he can LEGALLY do? Here it is and not it is from a LIB source, the NYT. Taken straight from Barr's letter:

https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/...er-report.html

Status of the Department’s Review

The relevant regulations contemplate that the Special Counsel's report will be a “confidential report to the Attorney General. See Office of Special Counsel, 64 Fed. Reg. 37,038, 37,040-41 (July 9, 1999). As I have previously stated, however, I am mindful of the public interest in this matter. For that reason, my goal and intent is to release as much of the Special Counsel's report as I can consistent with applicable law, regulations, and Departmental policies.

Based on my discussions with the Special Counsel and my initial review, it is apparent that the report contains material that is or could be subject to Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 6(e), which imposes restrictions on the use and disclosure of information relating to “matter[s] occurring before [a] grand jury.” Fed. R. Crim. P. 6(e)(2)(B). Rule 6(e) generally limits disclosure of certain grand jury information in a criminal investigation and prosecution. Id. Disclosure of 6(e) material beyond the strict limits set forth in the rule is a crime in certain circumstances. See, e.g., 18 U.S.C. 401(3). This restriction protects the integrity of grand jury proceedings and ensures that the unique and invaluable investigative powers of a grand jury are used strictly for their intended criminal justice function.

Given these restrictions, the schedule for processing the report depends in part on how quickly the Department can identify the 6(e) material that by law cannot be made public. I have requested the assistance of the Special Counsel in identifying all 6(e) information contained in the report as quickly as possible. Separately, I also must identify any information that could impact other ongoing matters, including those that the Special Counsel has referred to other offices. As soon as that process is complete, I will be in a position to move forward expeditiously in determining what can be released in light of applicable law, regulations, and Departmental policies.

As I observed in my initial notification, the Special Counsel regulations provide that “the Attorney General may determine that public release of” notifications to your respective Committees “would be in the public interest.” 28 C.F.R. 600.9(c). I have so determined, and I will disclose this letter to the public after delivering it to you.

Now, the Democrats are trying to coax Barr into breaking the law.
If you want to drive the lawless left crazy, just obey the law.

Can the report be released to Congress? Like they did with the Kavanaugh report? It sits in a room, they can go in and read it, no copies or notes.

Any public release will just be used as sound bites, by both sides, so even if legal, it won't be worth it.

I've changed my mind: I now demand the full release of Mueller's full report, as well as all underlying evidence.to Congress and the public by April 2.

Based on past transgressions --- like Nixon's Watergate scandal, with the Watergate jury of 1974...with them handing over the full evidence to Congress and the public is/was completely lawful --- "The law is clear, the House Judiciary Committee is entitled to the full 400 pages of the Mueller Report," he also said, "It is up to us to demand transparency."

quote: Democratic chairman of the House Judiciary Committee - Rep. Jerrold Nadler - (D -N.Y.)

The Dems seem to be on a roll lately. They're sabotaging their frontrunner candidates for 2020 and now seem intent on providing proof to the world about the shenanigans behind Mueller's report. You'll notice than Mueller himself is staying very quiet, like he's waiting for the other shoe to drop back on him. I really want to see all of those Russians indicted come over here and fight Mueller in court. And most of all, i'd like to see the entire investigation renewed and focused on all of the crimes committed with the paid for BS dossier and all of those deep state people who ignored their oaths and responsibilities and committed crimes instead.
