Barr Hopping

For twenty-two months, the sealed lips of the Mueller team built up more suspense than A Quiet Place. So when a few whispered leaks finally came, they landed with more volume than the sum total of all the idle talk we’ve exchanged amongst ourselves throughout the investigation. From the NYT: “Some of Robert S. Mueller III’s investigators have told associates that Attorney General William P. Barr failed to adequately portray the findings of their inquiry and that they were more troubling for President Trump than Mr. Barr indicated.”

+ Summary Judgment: “Members of Mueller’s team have complained to close associates that the evidence they gathered on obstruction was alarming and significant … Some members of the office were particularly disappointed that Barr did not release summary information the special counsel team had prepared.” WaPo: Limited information Barr has shared about Russia investigation frustrated some on Mueller’s team.
