We’ve known for weeks that the Mueller report would be released to the public. Now the Attorney General has made two revelations regarding the release of important information, including the Mueller report and an Inspector General’s (IG) investigation of irregularities at the FBI.
Today on the show we discussed the official testimony before Congress by Attorney General Bill Barr, during which he revealed that the Mueller report will be released to the public within a week.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller took over the Russian collusion counterintelligence investigation – to investigate Russian attempts to influence the 2016 Presidential Election – nearly two years ago, but we now know the investigation had begun in the Summer of 2016 under now-disgraced former FBI Director James Comey and FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.
“The Special Counsel's investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia in its efforts to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election.”
Since that letter, the Left has continually demanded the full-report, implying it was somehow being withheld. But, according to AG Barr, the report included classified information and Grand Jury material that could be a risk to other ongoing investigations and even national security if released. AG Barr also explained today how his team was working with the Special Counsel’s team to make the necessary redactions. Now, AG Barr has announced the properly redacted report will be released as promised.
Today AG Barr also revealed he is looking into the origins of the FBI investigation into then candidate-Trump:
“I am reviewing the conduct of the investigation and trying to get my arms around the aspects of the counterintelligence investigation that was conducted in the summer of 2016,” Barr testified.
We’ve previously told you about glaring irregularities at the FBI and the newly reported counterintelligence investigation of President Trump and reported FISA abuses.
And, we reported that former top FBI attorney James Baker is under investigation for leaking information and personally involved himself in a FISA warrant to surveil an American citizen even when it was not standard protocol for him to be involved.
Based on AG Barr’s testimony, we expect that Inspector General’s report involving the FISA abuse in May.
The summary of the Mueller report was simple: no collusion. Now the public will see the facts to support that conclusion for themselves. And finally, the abuses of power by former FBI officials will be brought to light.
