As Attorney General William Barr provided testimony to the House Appropriations Committee, he revealed that Special Counsel Robert Mueller had the chance to review Barr’s report summary, but declined the opportunity.
Democratic Rep. Jose Serrano asked Barr:
“With regard to your March 24th and 29th letters to the judiciary committees, did special counsel Mueller or anyone on his team have a role in drafting them or reviewing them in advance to use any of the summary documents prepared by the special counsel in drafting these documents?”
To which Barr stunningly revealed:
“The letter of the 24th, Mr. Mueller’s team did not play a role in drafting that document, although we offered him the opportunity to review it before we sent it out and he declined that. The letter on the 29th, I don’t believe that was reviewed by Mr. Mueller or that he participated in drafting that letter.”
This essentially shows that Mueller could have oversaw the summary of his report if he suspected that Barr would leave out any pertinent facts. The fact that Mueller passed on this offer shows that he believed Barr would honestly convey the information.
Which is just another example of why Democrats need to face the music and accept that Trump has been exonerated.
