Bill Barr Has Been Busted Briefing WH On Mueller Report Before Its Release
There has been speculation that Attorney General Bill Barr is hiding the truth behind the Mueller report in order to protect Donald Trump. That speculation turned into a fact on Wednesday when it was revealed that Barr has been briefing the White House on the report prior to its Thursday release to the public.
“Justice Department officials have had numerous conversations with White House lawyers about the conclusions made by Mr. Mueller, the special counsel, in recent days, according to people with knowledge of the discussions. The talks have aided the president’s legal team as it prepares a rebuttal to the report and strategizes for the coming public war over its findings.”
“A sense of paranoia is taking hold among some of Mr. Trump’s aides, some of whom fear his backlash more than the findings themselves, the people said. The report might make clear which of Mr. Trump’s current and former advisers spoke to the special counsel, how much they said and how much damage they did to the president — providing a kind of road map for retaliation,” The Times added.
“The discussions between Justice Department officials and White House lawyers have also added to questions about the propriety of the decisions by Attorney General William P. Barr since he received Mr. Mueller’s findings late last month,” The Times noted. “The discussions between Justice Department officials and White House lawyers have also added to questions about the propriety of the decisions by Attorney General William P.
