Latest Washington Post Report on Mueller Meant to 'MAXIMIZE the Embarrassment' for Barr
In a late-breaking article, the Post reported that Mueller contacted Barr-- in a letter and phone call-- to express concerns after Barr released his own public summary of the report in March. Mueller reportedly pushed Barr to release the executive summaries written by his office.
However, according to both the Post and the Justice Department, Mueller made clear that he did not feel Barr's summary was inaccurate. Instead, Mueller told Barr that media coverage of the letter had "misinterpreted" the results of the probe concerning obstruction of justice.
Barr is expected to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday.
The Post's headline was entitled, "Mueller complained that Barr’s letter did not capture ‘context’ of Trump probe"
Gingrich brushed off the report.
“After all the noise you just shrug your shoulders and say, ‘so what?’ Mueller had every opportunity to come out the day that Barr released his letter. Mueller could have at any point decided to refute it and as I understand the actual key sentences, the distortion is by the news media. The distortion is not by Barr,” Gingrich said.
Gingrich added, "Think about this. The media that Mueller is complaining about are the people who are now using Mueller’s complaint to further distort what is going on. You couldn't make this up.”
