Top Mueller prosecutor: Barr caught in a lie about Russia investigation
by Daniel Chaitin, Breaking News Editor |
 | July 28, 2020 09:30 PM

One of former special counsel Robert Mueller's top prosecutors believes Attorney General William Barr was caught making a "false statement" about the Russia investigation.

Andrew Weissmann, who was known as Mueller's "pit bull," told MSNBC that a House Democrat cornered Barr during the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday into admitting the White House did not fully cooperate with the special counsel investigation as he had claimed more than a year ago.

"I thought Rep. Neguse did a phenomenal job in cornering the attorney general in what I think is going to come out of this is something that really is a false statement. He said, 'You said in a press conference that the White House fully cooperated in the Mueller investigation,' and the attorney general would not repeat that under oath. He said, 'No, no, what I really meant was fully cooperated only with respect to document production,'" Weissmann said.

Weissmann said he "went back" and looked at the statement from Barr and found that not to be true. "He said fully cooperated with respect to documents and witnesses," he added.

I'm sure that were the transcript of Barr's 2019 testimony and any contemporary clarifications checked, this would be found to be a false accusation. The Dems continually lie, relying on people not remembering all that was said or done.

Rep. Neguse lied, unsurprisingly. Barr's comments were specifically about Mueller having access to documents, as Barr said.

Quote
In assessing the President’s actions discussed in the report, it is important to bear in mind the context. President Trump faced an unprecedented situation. As he entered into office, and sought to perform his responsibilities as President, federal agents and prosecutors were scrutinizing his conduct before and after taking office, and the conduct of some of his associates. At the same time, there was relentless speculation in the news media about the President’s personal culpability. Yet, as he said from the beginning, there was in fact no collusion. And as the Special Counsel’s report acknowledges, there is substantial evidence to show that the President was frustrated and angered by a sincere belief that the investigation was undermining his presidency, propelled by his political opponents, and fueled by illegal leaks. Nonetheless, the White House fully cooperated with the Special Counsel’s investigation, providing unfettered access to campaign and White House documents, directing senior aides to testify freely, and asserting no privilege claims. And at the same time, the President took no act that in fact deprived the Special Counsel of the documents and witnesses necessary to complete his investigation. Apart from whether the acts were obstructive, this evidence of non-corrupt motives weighs heavily against any allegation that the President had a corrupt intent to obstruct the investigation.

I expect this is in the works and they'll pass an impeachment vote by the end of the year.   They're like pitbulls who've tasted blood and need more.

The democrats destroyed any legitimacy for impeachment .. for them!

Oh they can impeach alright, it's just that.. No One Gives A Damn!

Funny isn't it?

If Trumps being impeached was such a victory for them, why haven't we heard their endless boasting about it?
