As Washington counts down the final hours until publication of the redacted Special Counsel report now expected on April 18, President Donald Trump stepped up his attacks in an effort to undermine potential disclosures on Russian Federation, his 2016 campaign and the aftermath.
Mr. Trump has spent recent days trying to soften the ground before Thursday's release, saying what matters is Attorney General William Barr's top-line findings that there was no conspiracy with Russian Federation to subvert the 2016 presidential election and not enough evidence to pursue an obstruction of justice case. Americans waiting for the removal of Trump as president will continue to follow the Mueller investigation's findings and his legal battles in various courts and locations, while Trump's supporters continue to believe that what he says is true - it's simply a series of witch hunts initiated and pursued by Democrats and liberals with the sole objective of stopping Trump from truly making America great again. "The crime was committed by the other side, this crime was all made up, it was all a fabrication".
Congress frequently receives classified documents and briefings, and Democrats say there is no reason the Mueller report should be any different. The House Judiciary Committee, led by Rep.
Congressman Jerrold Nadler, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee that is probing the election, told CNN on Sunday that Barr should release the full report and underlying investigatory evidence to his panel, but Barr has balked.
Democrats say they are not sure the almost 400 pages Mr. Barr has promised will tell them much, given that he has said every page has information that could demand redaction to protect classified information, grand jury testimony or ongoing, spinoff investigations. "In 400 pages, there will probably be a few things". I said this with great conviction because I knew that, regardless of the personal and political weaknesses of other Republicans running for the presidency and similar weaknesses in potential Democratic nominees, I was sure that Trump's arrogance, bullying, racist comments, history of bankruptcies, affairs, cheating, etc., would show him to be unsuitable to lead our nation as president.
One of Mr. Trump's attorneys, Rudolph W. Giuliani, told Politico that the president will release a counterreport Thursday that runs more than 30 pages.
The scores of outstanding questions about the investigation have not stopped the president and his allies from declaring victory.
Congressional Democrats cited precedent from previous investigations in saying they wanted to see it all. The president's two top White House lawyers, Pat Cipollone and Emmet Flood, are expected to be among the White House officials reading the report. In the waiting game's final days, the White House continued to try to shape the narrative.
Democrats are especially eager to see what Mr. Muellersays about obstruction of justice after the special counsel specifically said the report was not an exoneration.
