Skip to comments.Nadler: It would be ‘cover-up’ for Barr to withhold Mueller report

Rep. Jerry Nadler, the head of the House Judiciary Committee, said it would amount to a cover-up if Attorney General William Barr fails to release the entire special counsels report along with the underlying evidence that led Robert Mueller to his conclusions.
Because the Justice Department believes by law that a sitting president cannot be indicted, Congress needs to be able to see the Mueller report to fulfill its constitutional oversight duty, the New York Democrat said on Sunday.
If that is the case, and they cant hold him accountable, the only institution that can hold a president accountable is Congress, and Congress, therefore, needs the evidence and information, Nadler said on Fox News Sunday.
And for the (DOJ) to take the position that were not going to give information because hes not indicted like a normal person whos not indicted because of lack of evidence, is equivalent to a cover-up and subverts the only ability to hold the president accountable, Nadler added. And the president no more than anybody else cannot be above the law.

They must have retired "collusion".
Trump, Russia, Possible Collusion (REMIX)
And what would you do about it besides not a damn thing, Fat Boy?
Trump must release the information on why this entire Mueller Report was started? If he doesn’t, it will be a cover-up too.
With Democrats screaming for “release of all details” we can tell Corrupt Mueller stuck a poison pill somewhere in the report. They all know what’s in it and this is just part of their plan to promote for release at the best time for their purpose.
Nadler does not know or does not recognize the law.
Fat ‘Nad’less just can’t get the delusions out of his mind. He is clearly possessed (by stupidity).
Methinks the Dims are attacking an Attorney General who will not take kindly to being accused of engaging in a cover-up!
Might be interesting to watch what happens when they keep on messin’ with the Barr!
This is epic destruction of the cabal, happening right now in front of our eyes.
NEED MOAR WINNAMINS
Another disgusting Rat on Fox News. That’s why we are not watching much these days. It’s healthier for the old blood pressure.
A Poster the other day referred to Nadler as the “Mucinex Man.”
Obviously the key to opening Mueller DNCget rich scam is in the report.
“Fat Boy?” .. Lard A$$ , Gut Cut liar says what ??
These seditious idiots don’t “understand” that the report BY LAW goes only to the AG. What duplicitous poltroons.
Long standing DOJ policy not to release the details of an investigation of an individual unless there is a criminal indictment. Reasons are obvious, there’s always a lot of hearsay and speculation in the reports, doing so would damage the individual based on said speculation (which is fine with Democrats). Details on someone like Manafort, who was indicted, were made public, but there were a lot of others interviewed and investigated but who were not charged. Those details should be withheld (and historically have been).
Yes, they want the names and testimony of Grand Juries.
Good luck with that.
Cut Gut, I love it!
