Democrats were planning on grilling Prznint Stupid’s strategic hire AG Bill ‘Low’ Barr at a hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee (run by Senatorette Lindsey Graham, low morals and high score golfing partner of Prznint Stupid) today over his handling of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the Russia investigation.
The Dems have a fresh, new and improved, and lemon-scented line of questions, after Mueller complained to Barr that (in Mueller’s own words):
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. There is now public confusion about critical aspects of the results of our investigation. This threatens to undermine a central purpose for which the Department appointed the Special Counsel: to assure full public confidence in the outcome of the investigations.
Mueller’s protest was filed in a letter to Barr dated March 27 and was followed up with a phone call. And that date is important because it was two weeks BEFORE Low Barr told a Congressional committee—under oath—that he did not know whether Mueller agreed with his interpretation or not.
The fallout has been fast and furious (Note to self: I should trademark that phrase, it’s kinda catchy!):
Mueller has written a letter objecting to Barr’s summary of his report because it “did not fully capture the context, nature and substance of the investigation.” I have demanded the letter & Barr must answer for this. Mueller must be allowed to testify. https://t.co/gylocOsYlv

I note with interest AG Barr’s 4/10 Senate testimony. “Q: Did Bob Mueller support your conclusion? A: I don’t know whether Bob Mueller supported my conclusion.” Now it appears that Mueller objected in this 3/27 letter. https://t.co/IiK5zJYtAS

Now, to show how impartial MPS is, we turn to Wrong-Again Rudy Giuliani, Comrade Stupid’s second stupidest lawyer (Sorry Rudy™):
“Mueller should have made a decision and shouldn’t be complaining or whining now that he didn’t get described correctly.”
In Barr’s prepared remarks to the Senate committee today, he states that “it is vitally important for the Department of Justice to stand apart from the political process.” Bet he’s gonna regret those words.
So, what’s the over-under that Barr will need to “work from home” today, you know because he’s expecting a plumber? Republicans always use plumbers as their excuse, sticking with a classic.
