House Democrats Try To Pressure AG Barr To Turn Against Trump, Then Barr Crushes Nadler’s Hopes Of Seeing Unredacted Mueller Report

on

Kirsters Baish| Jerry Nadler’s push to obtain the unredacted Mueller report seems to have fallen short after Attorney General William Barr denied the Democrat’s subpoena.

Attorney General Bill Barr has shut down House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler’s efforts to obtain the full Mueller report unredacted.

The Chairman has claimed that there is plenty of evidence that President Trump obstructed Mueller’s investigation in the report, despite Mueller’s decision not to charge the President with obstruction.

Nadler claims the only reason Special Counsel Robert Mueller did not charge Donald Trump with obstruction is because of the long held opinion that a sitting president can not be indicted.

He is expecting the DOJ to comply with his request for the full Mueller report by May 1st.

This is the same day that Bill Barr is set to testify in front of a Senate committee.

DavidHarrisJr.com reports, “Nadler insists that his committee has the right to unfettered access to the report, but that’s a lie – and Nadler knows it. The Special Counsel Act requires that the Special Counsel must send a report to the DOJ but Barr, as the head of the DOJ, is not obligated to turn anything over to Congress.”

The Attorney General has done more than his job requires of him, handing over a report that was hardly redacted. Recall that he only exempted testimony from the grand jury and evidence, which the law says cannot be released, and “redactions that protect ongoing investigations and prosecutions, along with national security information. He offered Democrats a less redacted version, but Democrats refused the offer.”

Fox News reports:

The Department of Justice responded Friday to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler’s request for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s full and unredacted report, dismissing the request as both “premature and unnecessary.”

DOJ spokesperson Kerri Kupec said in a statement that Attorney General Bill Barr provided Mueller’s report on Thursday with only “minimal redactions” and, “in the interest of transparency,” the department had provided certain members of Congress, including Nadler, with a report that had “even fewer redactions.”

“In light of this, Congressman Nadler’s subpoena is premature and unnecessary. The Department will continue to work with Congress to accommodate its legitimate requests consistent with the law and long-recognized executive branch interests,” Kupec stated.

In a statement released early on Friday morning, Nadler stated that he had submitted a subpoena to the Justice Department seeking the “full version” of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, as well as “underlying evidence.” Nadler insisted the DOJ comply with his request by May 1.
