The Mueller Report is 300+ Pages. Democrats Think That Means AG Barr is Lying.

Sources are saying the Mueller report is more than 300 pages long, a fact that has prompted some Democrats and the media to question Attorney General Barr’s four-page summary.

The Mueller Report is 300+ Pages. Democrats Think That Means AG Barr is Lying.

The New York Times is reporting that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report concerning allegations of collusion between President Trump and Russia totals more than 300 pages. According to the Times, the newly revealed length of the report “raises new questions” about the four-page summary that U.S. Attorney General William Barr sent to Congress on Sunday.

Barr’s summary claimed to cover the Mueller report’s “principal conclusions.” Among those conclusions was the fact that Mueller did not find evidence that the 2016 Trump campaign colluded with Russia in an effort to undermine the election.

To Democrats, the report’s length is somehow evidence of a “cover-up” by Barr:

Democrats, who like all other lawmakers have not seen the report, have all but accused Mr. Barr of covering up damaging information it contains. They have specifically focused on an apparent difference between the views of Mr. Barr and Mr. Mueller on whether Mr. Trump obstructed justice. Democrats have demanded that the attorney general make the full report and evidence public.

It’s not yet clear if, when, or to what extent Barr will allow portions of the report to be released.

But it’s also not immediately clear why the length of the Mueller report is bringing into question the veracity of Barr’s summary. Time will tell if the report sees the light of day, but it would be highly unusual if Barr’s summary was somehow in conflict with the Mueller report.
