1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (196 sites): Palmer Report: Everything hits the fan for Donald Trump ahead of William Barr’s press conference

Donald Trump’s corrupt Attorney General William Barr is holding a press conference tomorrow morning about the Mueller report, which he’ll then release in heavily – and presumably dishonestly – redacted form. This development comes even as a number of things related to the Mueller probe hit the fan behind the scenes, on what’s turning out to be a chaotic evening.



First came the news, from the New York Times, that Barr’s Department of Justice has been illegally discussing the Mueller report with Donald Trump’s White House ahead of its release. This represents felony obstruction of justice on the part of Barr, Trump, and anyone at the DOJ and White House who participated in the discussions. This opens the door for House Democrats to impeach Trump and Barr both, and for Barr to be criminally indicted after Trump is gone. But first things first, because this evening’s news cycle keeps exploding.



Donald Trump’s personally loyal Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met with Barr this afternoon, according to ABC News. If the two of them were strategizing over tomorrow’s redacted release of the Mueller report, then Pompeo arguably also just entered into a felony conspiracy to obstruct justice. But the news gets stranger. Days ago, Roger Stone asked for an unredacted copy of the Mueller report, arguing that he needs it in order to prepare his legal defense. Today the DOJ informed Stone and the judge that certain members of Congress will receive a version of the Mueller report that includes the portions that were redacted due to the ongoing nature of Stone’s trial. Make of that whatever you will.


The bottom line is that this whole thing is quickly turning into even more of a crapfest than we thought. If there’s an upside, it’s that with Donald Trump’s people scrambling this frantically behind the scenes just before the release of the redacted Mueller report, even the redacted version must be pretty awful for Trump. Otherwise his people wouldn’t be scheming like this to try to put so much spin on it. And yeah, House Democrats need to bring impeachment charges against William Barr as soon as humanly possible.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (196 sites): Palmer Report: The real reason for William Barr’s bonkers press conference about the Mueller report

Spread the Knowledge

  •  


This afternoon it was revealed that Donald Trump’s handpicked Attorney General William Barr will hold a press conference tomorrow morning at 9:30am eastern time in order to discuss the heavily redacted version of the Mueller report that he’s releasing. The mere existence of such a press conference is unusual, to say the least. Considering that Trump himself announced the Barr press conference before Barr could, this thing is going to be completely bonkers.



It’s not yet clear if William Barr will be taking questions and treating this as a real press conference, or if he plans to merely force-feed his own talking points to the media. NBC News says that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein – who last week asininely defended Barr’s phony “summary” of the Mueller report – will also be on hand for the event. We’re assuming Rosenstein will be there because he wants to erase what last bits of credibility he might still have left.



But the real story here is Barr, of course. The mere fact that Trump was the one to announce the press conference is a sign that Trump is pulling the strings here. Based on his recent tweets and his narcissistic sociopath nature in general, we know that Trump expects Barr to announce that he’s been fully exonerated on all counts. So perhaps Barr will make this announcement, knowing that Trump will be watching, and then release a damaging version of the Mueller report with the knowledge that Trump doesn’t read such things.


In any case, the big question here is just how much of Donald Trump’s criminal dirt will be included in this “redacted” report. William Barr has to release at least some ugly Trump dirt if he wants to maintain any hope of fending off the inevitable release of the full Mueller report. Trump’s decision to send Barr in front of the cameras could well be the result of Barr having warned Trump that ugly dirt will be released tomorrow, and Trump’s subsequent demand that Barr go out there and spin it as positively as possible before the cameras.
