DOJ and Jerry Nadler make surprise deal on Mueller report mess


After 22 months of exhaustive investigation that brought DC to a near standstill, many hoped that the Robert Mueller investigation into “RussiaGate” would be the end of the line for the democratically held conspiracy theory.

But no.

Congressional democrats were livid, and belligerently accused Attorney General Bill Barr of obscuring or spinning the truth of the matter in his DOJ-approved summary of the investigation.  Barr, for what it’s worth, declined to turn over the un-redacted version of the report and its underlying evidence, based on well-established legal parameters regarding the indemnity of witnesses.  This was simply not good enough for the “resistance”, who promptly held Barr in contempt of Congress.

Now, on the eve of a vote as to how the democrats would enforce that charge, the Department of Justice is beginning to cooperate.

House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler on Monday said he has struck a deal with the Justice Department to begin providing Congress with some documents from the Mueller Report related to obstruction of justice.

Nadler announced the agreement ahead of a vote scheduled for Tuesday, when the House is expected to approve a resolution to go to court to enforce its subpoenas of Attorney General William Barr and former White House counsel Don McGahn.

But a court fight appears to be no longer necessary for the Barr subpoena — at least for the time being — as a result of the agreement the committee struck with the Justice Department. The details of which documents would be provided to the committee were not disclosed, but Nadler said the agreement would allow all Judiciary Committee members to see “Robert Mueller’s most important files … providing us with key evidence that the Special Counsel used to assess whether the President and others obstructed justice or were engaged in other misconduct.”

“These documents will allow us to perform our constitutional duties and decide how to respond to the allegations laid out against the President by the Special Counsel,” Nadler said.

The democrats’ interpretation of the Mueller report’s findings differs wildly from that of the White House, who have maintained that Mueller’s unwillingness to charge the President with any crime is an indication of Donald Trump’s innocence.

Democrats believe instead that Mueller’s abstaining was due to an opinion long-ago-formed by the Office of Legal Counsel – an opinion that AG Barr does not share.
