The White House Is Now Desperately Trying To Cover Up The True Findings Of The Mueller Report

Published

Finally, the Mueller report has been published. Apart from a few redacted parts to protect the integrity of ongoing legal proceedings, we now have full public access to the results of the inquiry former Director of the FBI and current Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III was commissioned to put together by the Department of Justice over two years ago. However, as is consistent with the character of President Donald Trump and the trends he has set during the two and a bit years that he has held the high office of President of the United States and leader of the free world so far, he was not going to let justice take its course without interruption.

Attorney General Bill Barr was the President’s key ally in all of this. In spite of the fact that the Attorney General is supposed to be apolitical and pursuing only the legal truth, Barr has been staunchly loyal to Trump, even when the legality of his actions has been called into question. Barr also played a key role in spinning the Mueller report so that the public would not learn about the truly damning findings it contains, as recent reports have revealed:

The Justice Department announced on Wednesday night it would hold a press conference Thursday morning to preview special counsel Robert Mueller’s report before releasing the redacted version to Congress later in the day. President Donald Trump would also have press availability to discuss the report publicly before it goes to Congress around noon. Press reports Wednesday evening indicated the Justice Department had briefed the White House repeatedly about the forthcoming report, and that the briefings had helped the president and his lawyers craft a “rebuttal” of the report. The president and his surrogates, however, maintain the report fully exonerates him of allegations of collusion and obstruction of justice.

The slow walkout of the report Thursday morning gives the White House and Attorney General William Barr, a Trump appointee, time to discuss publicly their interpretations of the report before members of Congress are able to see it. The attorney general’s plan is “indefensible” and allows him to “spin the report… hours before he allows the public or Congress to see it [and has] resulted in a crisis of confidence in his independence and impartiality,” said Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-NY) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

It is hard to imagine Trump being less presidential than this. How much longer can he go on?
