Posted on 04/17/2019 5:53:06 PM PDT by tcrlaf
House Democrats exploded in anger Wednesday over Attorney General William Barrs plans to roll out special counsel Robert Muellers report, accusing the Justice Department of trying to spin the reports contents and protect President Donald Trump.
Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will hold a press conference at 9:30 a.m. Thursday morning to review the report, which may be heavily redacted. Reports that DOJ officials have already discussed Muellers findings with the White House only further inflamed tensions.
Im deeply troubled by reports that the WH is being briefed on the Mueller report AHEAD of its release, tweeted House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler. The New York Democrat added that DOJ informed him that Congress will not receive the report until around 11 a.m. or 12 p.m. Thursday. This is wrong, Nadler added.
A Senate aide confirmed that lawmakers don't expect to receive Mueller's report until 11 a.m. on Thursday after Barr and Rosenstein's press conference and a discussion about providing a less-redacted version to Congress won't begin until Friday. Muellers probe focused on Russia's attempt to interfere in the 2016 election and whether any associates of Trump aided the scheme.
Why is William Barr holding a press conference if not to (once again) try and frame the Special Counsels findings, tweeted Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.), a member of the House Judiciary Committee. Just release the full report and let the American people judge for themselves!"

So-called Attorney General is presiding over a dog and pony show, tweeted House Democratic Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries. Here is a thought. Release the Mueller report tomorrow morning and keep your mouth shut. You have ZERO credibility.
There should be arrests.
The Naggler is deeply troubled. What a childish fellow. Was he stomping and holding hands over his ears as he said it? I didn’t see it.
Dems have been screaming for over two years, WE NEED TO SEE THE MUELLER REPORT..now they are going to get it and look at them crying about their precious report, its because instead of implicating Trump, its going to implicate the Dems and they are sh*tting their pants
Like I have said so many times, those who control the Executive, the Senate and Judiciary branches of the Federal Government control the country....controlling the House alone means...”ZILCH”!!! Goodbye, Nadler, Schiff, Pelosi, Waters, Clyburn, etc.!!!
No matter how truthful they’ll just call it more collusion.
Trump has direct authority over the report and Nadler has none.
Cuts off your ability to spin it some other way, ya dipstick.
The Naggler is deeply troubled.
Yes, hes still grieving the loss of the MEEK Jeff Sessions.
Yes. How many press conferences have the Dems had?
Gotta be a good reason for Barr and Rosey to suck up so much time on a preview, as well as a reason that both are present.
Anything Barr does that drives the Democrats nuts is fine with me.
If Barr just released the report without speaking, they’d scream that he was “running away from the report”, etc.
Eff the Dems. The guilty had better pay. If not, the Republican party is dead.
Some black muslim leaders love to use that term. It is often a dead giveaway about the speaker. And it is, in this case, right on target.
So-called Attorney General is presiding over a dog and pony show, tweeted House Democratic Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries.
So call House Democratic Clown Hakeem Jeffries farts out of his mouth.
How true! And speaking of redactions, how many times did Dems complain when Rosenstein sent near totally redacted reports to Nunes’ committee?
