We have found the evidence of COLLUSION!
Collusion between Trump and Barr. Barr is supposed to be the Attorney General of the United States — the people of the nation; the top law enforcement officer. He is NOT supposed to be the White House Counsel or Trump’s personal attorney (Trump’s Roy Cohn). Those are separate positions filled separately.
But now we know that Barr has colluded with Trump. He has shared the contents of the report with Trump’s people prior to public release, in contrast with all legal norms (remember when CONservatives went completely ballistic because Obama’s Attorney General met with a FORMER president in a brief, casual exchange on a tarmac?).
As a result, Trump’s attorneys have already prepared a 35-page rebuttal to the Mueller report. (Note: when the jury comes back with a NOT GUILTY verdict, you don’t need a rebuttal. The fact Trump needs a rebuttal proves that Mueller did NOT exonerate Trump.
Barr, who has a record of writing dishonest “summaries” going back to his time in the George H.W. Bush White House that were later caught is personally interfering in a process.
Barr wrote a summary that Mueller investigators called inaccurate, and now he wants to have a “press conference” BEFORE releasing the actual (redacted) report so he can spin it his way instead of letting the report speak for itself.
Barr and Trump colluding.
Once before an Attorney General decided to be the personal lawyer of the president and he ended up going to jail. (Nixon’s first Attorney General, John Mitchell.)
William Barr should take heed.
