Everyone Got to Read the Starr Report on Bill Clinton. Here's Why the Mueller Report May Not Get the Same Treatment

3 monthes ago   |   By

When special counsel Robert Mueller on Friday sent the U.S. Department of Justice the report on his two-year investigation into Russia interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, a new stage in that process began. And for many Americans, a new question has arisen: when, and whether, they will get to see what Mueller found.
Attorney General William Barr revealed some details about the report over the weekend in a summary to Congress, but it remains to be seen whether the full report will be released publicly. Many politicians, including Democrats gunning for their party's 2020...

Mueller's obstruction punt left question in Barr's hands

3 monthes ago   |   By

WASHINGTON - Special counsel Robert Mueller had two key questions before him: Did the Trump campaign collude with the Russian government during the 2016 election and did President Donald Trump commit obstruction of justice?
On the collusion question, Mueller provided an unambiguous "no." But he punted on obstruction.
It's a decision that's puzzled some former Justice Department officials who say prosecutors at Mueller's level typically make their own charging recommendations rather than leaving them to higher-ups.
By not acting, Mueller left the politically charged obstruction question to...

Democrats now have to beat Trump the old-fashioned way

3 monthes ago   |   By

Democrats were never relying on putting the Russia investigation at the center of their presidential campaigns. But the freedom to rebrand President Donald Trump as a criminal had been widely viewed as a major potential asset - a crowd-pleaser, at minimum, and an undercurrent to Democrats' broader effort to portray Trump as unfit for the presidency. The Mueller report's findings cut deeply into that prospective line of attack. After a summary of Mueller's report concluded there wasn't enough evidence to find Trump conspired with Russia to win the 2016 election, Democrats seeking to unseat...

In Russia, the reaction to the results of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into links between Moscow and President Donald Trump's presidential campaign can be summed up in one phrase: “We knew it all along.”
