As I read them, Barr’s public statements on the report reflect at least seven different layers of substantive misrepresentation, layers which build on one another into a dramatic rewriting of the president’s conduct—and of Mueller’s findings about the president’s conduct. It is worth unpacking and disentangling these misrepresentations, because each is mischievous on its own, but together they operate as a disinformation campaign being run by the senior leadership of the Justice Department.

Programmatic means “sticking with the program” which in this case was “stir up anger against the POTUS to try to impeach for no cause.” Barr just stuck to the facts in his little summary, and didn’t include the hyperbole, therefore he LIED (somehow) and must be IMPEACHED IMMEDIATELY ZOMG!!!! autistic Libby screeching

I suppose that is why Mueller wrote him (Barr) a letter saying, “The summary letter the Department sent to Congress and released to the public late in the afternoon of March 24 did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance of this Office’s work and conclusions,”

Context, nature and substance that's pretty much everything. In other words you are a devious sack of shit.

He goes on to tell Barr to release his summaries immediately to quell public confusion which he didn't do.
“Accordingly, the enclosed documents are in a form that can be released to the public consistent with legal requirements and Department policies,” Mueller wrote. “I am requesting that you provide these materials to Congress and authorize their public release at this time.”

Obviously you didn't watch the hearing. Barr said he spoke to Mueller over the phone about that specifically. This is beautiful:

Barr is a mysterious and murky figure. A CIA recruit from early on, he has been associated with the BushFuck Globalist schemes on many levels. He typically was never a 'prosecutor' so much as a blind eye fixit man who quelled and suppressed the criminal inquiries of Bush/Clinton criminal axis and the CIA drug runners in the day. He is a blob of quasi-legal gel to capture and dissolve flagrant lawless activities and turn them into pablum. He'll try to bore everybody to death until they don't care any more, and then he'll kibosh and kabong the inquiries.

Nowadays, the observation has been made that AGs aren't legal enforcers. They are appointed to cover up the crimes of their political leaders and/or to selectively prosecute and persecute the enemies of their political leaders. The AGs for the last thirty or forty years fit this bill .

There is not much to indicate that somebody like Barr is going to conduct any meaningful prosecutions, but will simply play act and way lay them eventually, hopefully when the media attention goes somewhere else. GlobailstFucks and top Gov bureaucratic seditionists and, of course, the intelligence agencies are probably quite safe, including IHLlary. I notice she has been loudly braying in public again, she certainly is smug and not running scared in the least. I doubt Obama and his minions are losing any sleep.

Barr is just another diplomate of the now standard, ongoing, disappointing and permanently lodged corruption of the Deep State in league with the coverts. Trump may just not be able to to do anything about it except survive.

Why didn't Mueller reach a conclusion? It was his job after all. Because he wanted to sow more discord. He's crooked as fuck AND made his considerable money the swampy way: Revolving door of the govt vs. lobbying for crony caps. I can't wait to hear about his pals formerly running the FBI and DOJ going to prison.

So put Mueller on the stand and let him bore everyone to tears with this “substance” he felt was missing from the summary. Not that we need said summary anymore since the whole thing has been released now should anyone need a soporific before bedtime.
It wasn’t Barr’s job to inform the public anyway. It was his job to decide whether a prosecution was in order. Dems are just mad that he defied their wishes and said “no prosecution.”

Barr's psyops training is to disarm the most querulous, aggressive, hostile, nasty, soapboxing Congressional inquisitionist, armed with facts, figures, dates, times, recordings etc. illustrating indisputable evidence of malfeasance, turning the inquisitor into a snoring mass of tongue lolling apathy, while the rest of the room wanders around like dazed decerebrates bumping into the walls.

I agree, Barr took it upon himself and injected his opinions as a summary of the report while at the same time keeping Mueller's summaries, which were prepared for public release out of public view for weeks. This was pretty clearly political move. Barr should have simply released Mueller's summaries or waited till he could release the redacted report.

Quigley says

As to Trump himself, that was already decided by the OLC memo that says you cannot indict a sitting President, Barr believes that, as does Mueller. There was never going to be an indictment of Trump though many of his cronies got swept up in the investigation. Remember Mueller's job was about: 1 Russian interference in the 2016 election to the benefit of Trump and 2. whether Trump campaign conspired with Russia. As to the first he found wide spread and systematic interference; as to the second there was no crime committed. The third issue obstruction of justice has been left an open question (by Mueller) for congress now, and perhaps after Trump is out of office the legal system to determine. In Barr's opinion there was no obstruction, but that was forgone conclusion because Barr has a singularly odd and expansive view of Presidential power, that says it is essentially impossible for a President to commit obstruction because he is the President.

Barr's final exam at Langley was to show a bloody suitcase full of infant body parts to a group of helicopter moms, and convince them through droning torrents of fake legalese that they had just seen a cute baby in a stroller.

"Where there is evidence of crime, there is NO evidence of crime."

Barr's skill is to make the most heinous, obvious atrocity and crime appear to be beneath the dignity of public or official notice.

As far as going after unindicted co-conspirators, good luck with that. Langley doesn't train for that.

"You don't actually expect me to prosecute all my FRIENDS? They might jostle my brandy at the oligarch club!"

Materially hampering an investigation with intent to hide wrongdoing. That’s obstruction. Trump’s tweets don’t constitute any of that, neither so conversations with staffers about his options. Not to mention that he had no wrongdoing to hide, so pretty hard to prove intent there. Remember, both Barr and Rosenstein who was in on this from the beginning and actually appointed Mueller, agreed that there was no case there for obstruction.

Pelosi will never move to impeach him over this unless she finds something vastly more compelling. Hence the endless and illegal congressional investigations of all of Trump’s business practices for the last forty years.

Show her the man and she will try to show you the crime!

Anyway, she’s not stupid enough to try to impeach a sitting President just to clarify a point of law. Because make no mistake, there is no clear law that finds his actions criminal with respect to obstruction. That would have to be decided and appealed and all that, but what it really would come down to is a Senate vote to toss the whole mess out and get on with business. And she knows that. So this is just political theater, as usual.

Mueller never said the only Golden words that matters for him. "I recommend Criminal Prosecution."

As a prosecutor investigator, Mueller's job is not to exonerate anyone. Trump was not on trial, there is no guilt to assume. So Mueller's job was to find guilt and recommend prosecution. Not release a mealy mouthed report that says. Ah gee, we found nothing but he looks guilty, we don't think he's innocent.

I paid taxes! I want the unredacted report & all supporting evidence. Of course there is nothing to hide.
For those that have their names exposed, be aware of those that will place one in legal jeopardy. Might be wise to pay attention to those one gets involved with.

The States' Attorneys General are on the case.

So Mueller's job

Actually, Mueller's job was to look in to Russia's attempts to hack our election. The Trump campaigns possible involvement with Russia's involvement is a side issue that's only part of what he was asked to investigate.

His findings are his findings. IF they looked in to obstruction, and found that maybe there was obstruction, but that they are not indicting the President, then let that be reported and disclosed in all it's detail. That is the details of what obstruction is in this case, what they found, what is the exact extent, and why they concluded it doesn't rise to the level of an indictment. The public deserves to know the details.

Then we can maybe be done with this. . (not that there won't be other investigations of Trump).

Mueller found lots of collaborative enterprise, all of which would be complicated to prosecute.

Mueller found lots of attempts at obstruction by Trump which were end-run by staffers who had a rudimentary understanding of right and wrong.

He'll die in a prison, like state, with a neonazi's dick in his ass begging for a bullet that will never come.

The Mueller Report was abominable political vaporware. However, Trump probably just caved to neocons/paleohawks whatever to get this out of his hair and start preparing for the next election. The deep staters told him they would let him borrow their best obfuscation, evasion, and gaslighting artist as AG to hold the gates. The devil's bargain was probably that none of the conspiracy stuff going back through the CIA, FBI, Steel Dossier, Comey et alia, IHLlary etc. etc. will get prosecuted, either.

There'll be the usual drama, veins that lead nowhere, quashed and ignored crimes, but lots fireworks, sturm und drang, but no resulting imprisonments.

I hope that that is wrong, but I am not optimistic.

Nobody did 'nuffin, and they'll just roll on with the now ingrained and standardized corruptions and war mongerings, pushing on to war with Iran.

I personally wonder what new, horrendous false flags they are planning, in order to relieve us of our final shreds of liberty and freedom. The enemy isn't from without, it is from within.

Bolton et alia. will probably be detonating a nuclear weapon on American soil to blame Iran and provoke war. We are finally at the fork in the road where our own government's duplicities cause us to regard every nominal atrocity as a false flag of the Administrative Deep State until proven otherwise.
