    Default Trump's ex-lawyer slams 'unprofessional' Robert Mueller for sending 'snitty' letter to Barr

    Trump's ex-lawyer slams 'unprofessional' Robert Mueller for sending 'snitty' letter to Barr

    By Rowan Scarborough - The Washington Times
    Thursday, May 2, 2019


    President Trump’s former defense attorney says it was a “unprofessional” for Robert Mueller to send a protest letter to Attorney General William Barr that later leaked to the press.

    John Dowd, whose unofficial role today is to continue to publicly defend the president, said Mr. Barr offered to let Mr. Mueller read his summation of the special counsel’s report before its release. Mr. Mueller declined.

    Mr. Mueller then reacted to the memo by sending “a bit snitty” (Mr. Barr’s words) letter of complaint.

    “That’s absolutely unprofessional,” Mr. Dowd told The Washington Times. “I go back to the 400 pager. Why are you jamming the attorney general with a 400-page report that you are declining charges. It was only to force him to dump it into the public trough. It is such a farce and for Mueller to be part of it is ridiculous. It is shameful.”

    Peter Carr, Mr. Mueller’s spokesman, declined to comment.

    The Mueller complaint letter got leaked to the press on the eve of the attorney general’s Senate Judiciary Committee testimony on Wednesday. Democrats cited the letter to bombard Mr. Barr with accusatory questions.

    The Mueller complaint letter got leaked to the press on the eve of the attorney general’s Senate Judiciary Committee testimony on Wednesday. Democrats cited the letter to bombard Mr. Barr with accusatory questions.

    The chronology: Mr. Mueller submitted his report to Mr. Barr, his long time friend, on March 22. The report needed to be cleansed of classified and grand jury information.

    While waiting for that weeks-long process, Mr. Barr issued a March 24 memo on Mr. Mueller’s two key findings: no Russia-Trump conspiracy to interfere in the 2016 election; evidence of Trump obstruction but no recommendation. Mr. Barr said he, and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, concluded there was insufficient evidence of obstruction.

    Two days later, Mr. Mueller sent his letter to Mr. Barr.

    “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,” Mr. Mueller said.

    On April 17, Mr. Barr released the Mueller report with relatively light redactions.

    Mr. Dowd said the Mueller attack and the leak are part of a pattern of the special counsel’s staff.

    “I suspected they were up to no good just like the president predicted,” Mr. Dowd said. “His instinct were right from the beginning. These guys are up to no good. These guys are trying to get me.”

    He added, “I think it was designed just like his report was designed to keep the narrative going.”

    Default 'That's a crime': Pelosi accuses Barr of lying to Congress

    'That's a crime': Pelosi accuses Barr of lying to Congress

    Dylan StablefordSenior Editor, Yahoo News
    • May 2, 2019


    The day after Attorney General William Barr’s long and contentious appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused him of lying.

    “The attorney general of the United States was not telling the truth,” Pelosi said during her weekly press conference on Capitol Hill. “That’s a crime.”

    “He lied to Congress. He lied to Congress,” she continued. “If anybody else did that, it would be considered a crime. Nobody is above the law. Not the president of the United States and not the attorney general. Being the attorney general does not give you a bath to go say whatever you want.”

    Barr had faced pointed questions from Democratic lawmakers over his handling of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report. Barr was also grilled about his testimony before the House Appropriations Committee on April 9, when Rep. Charlie Crist, D-Fla., asked Barr if he knew that members of Mueller’s team were “frustrated” by Barr’s four-page summary of the special counsel’s report, which was broadly favorable to President Trump.

    Barr told Crist he was unaware of objections from Mueller. But at the Wednesday hearing a letter was made public in which Mueller told Barr about his concerns with the attorney general’s summary and how it was being described in media reports. The letter was sent on March 27, two weeks before Barr told Crist the opposite.

    Pelosi would not comment on what should happen next, saying she would leave it up to Democratic-controlled House committees to decide.

    More broadly, Pelosi said the American people should “connect the dots” from Barr to Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and a Republican agenda “fueled by dark special-interest money.”

    Barr, she noted, is leading the Justice Department’s lawsuit against the Affordable Care Act, which, if it prevails, would cause millions of Americans to lose their health care coverage.

    “He was sitting there in that arrogance. ‘I don’t care about your preexisting condition. I care about the special interests in our country.’ That was the message,” Pelosi said. “That was what that hearing was about.”

    Earlier Thursday, Barr failed to appear at the House Judiciary Committee hearing amid disagreements over the format.

    In a remarkable scene inside the Rayburn House Office Building on Capitol Hill, House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., blasted Barr as the attorney general’s empty seat was visible on a split screen.

    “He has failed the men and women of the Department of Justice by placing the needs of the president over the fair administration of justice,” Nadler said. “He has even failed to show up today.”

    Default House Speaker Pelosi: Trump making impeachment case by ignoring subpoenas

    House Speaker Pelosi: Trump making impeachment case by ignoring subpoenas

    Reuters May 8, 2019


    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Wednesday President Donald Trump was moving closer to impeachment with his effort to thwart congressional subpoenas and obstruct lawmakers' efforts to oversee his administration.

    "Every single day the president is making the case" and "he's becoming self-impeachable," Pelosi said in an interview with the Washington Post, when asked about the possibility of the Republican president being impeached by the House.

    Trump on Wednesday asserted executive privilege over Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign and its underlying investigative materials, escalating the battle with the Democrats on the U.S. House Judiciary Committee.

    The move came shortly before the House Judiciary Committee was to vote to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt for defying a congressional subpoena to hand over the full unredacted report.

    The Judiciary Committee is one of number of committees in the Democratic-controlled House that are investigating Trump and his administration on multiple fronts, including White House security clearances and Trump's personal and business dealings.

    The House and Senate still are investigating Russian election meddling and possible obstruction of justice by Trump.

    Mueller's report cited extensive contacts between Trump's 2016 campaign and Moscow but did not find a conspiracy between Moscow and the campaign. It also described actions that Trump took to try to impede the investigation and congressional Democrats have vowed to continue their own probe into the issue.

    Trump has denied any wrongdoing and vowed to fight all congressional subpoenas.

    U.S. Attorney General William Barr faces a contempt citation by the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday for failing to comply with lawmakers' requests, while former White House lawyer Don McGahn faces a similar threat.

    U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin also has defied Congress, this week not acting on the House Ways and Means Committee's request for Trump's tax returns.

    Republicans, who control the U.S. Senate, have dismissed House Democrats' investigations as political posturing ahead of the 2020 presidential election.

    Democrats are divided over how far to take their investigations with some calling for impeachment proceedings and others backing continued panel investigations.

    "The president . . . wants to goad us into impeachment," Pelosi told the Post. Such proceedings would also be "divisive" for the country, she said.

    Default Top FBI officials were 'quite worried' Comey would appear to be blackmailing Trump

    Top FBI officials were 'quite worried' Comey would appear to be blackmailing Trump

    Michael Isikoff Chief Investigative Correspondent,
    Yahoo News • May 15, 2019


    Senior FBI officials were concerned then director James Comey would appear to be blackmailing then President-elect Trump – using tactics notoriously associated with J.Edgar Hoover – when he attended a fateful Jan. 6, 2017, meeting at which he informed the real estate magnate about allegations he had consorted with prostitutes in Moscow, according to Jim Baker, the bureau’s chief counsel at the time.

    “We were quite worried about the Hoover analogies, and we were determined not to have such a disaster happen on our watch,” said Jim Baker, then the FBI’s top lawyer in an interview with the Yahoo News podcast Skullduggery. But he and Comey determined the bureau had an obligation to tell Trump of the uncorroborated allegations because “the press has it; it’s about to come out. You should be alerted to that fact.”

    Baker’s comments came during an interview in which he shed new light on the internal bureau debates over how to handle the Russia investigation in its early stages and how much to tell Trump about it. In the podcast interview, Baker also pledged to cooperate with a new investigation into the origins of the Russia probe, emphasizing that he believes he and his FBI colleagues did nothing wrong.

    Attorney General William Barr appointed the U.S. Attorney in Connecticut John Durham this week to conduct the new probe.

    “I welcome scrutiny,” said Baker. “I plan to fully cooperate with the department to help them figure out what happened. Because I believe what happened was lawful, at least based on every piece of information that I have.”

    Baker, who served for more than 20 years in sensitive Justice Department and FBI positions, is among those former FBI and U.S. intelligence officials who have come under scrutiny since the release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report. As Trump and his allies see it, these officials conspired to launch a baseless investigation against him and his campaign that was influenced by an uncorroborated dossier paid for by Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

    “It was the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the people of this country, and you know what, I am so proud of our attorney general that he is looking into it,” President Trump told reporters on Tuesday. “I think it’s great.”

    But Baker insisted that the FBI would have been derelict in its duty if it did not investigate the allegations about Trump campaign’s ties to Russia during the 2016 election.

    “It was pretty alarming,” Baker said about intelligence the bureau had about possible links between the Trump campaign and various Russian actors. “The thought that somehow somebody in either one of the campaigns might have had some connection to that or some awareness of it that they didn't inform the FBI about was … quite concerning and disorienting.”

    The issue was so sensitive that when Comey was preparing to brief Trump after the election, Baker and the director were directly at odds about how to handle the matter. The meeting was crucial: It was the moment that the U.S. intelligence chief — including Comey — were to brief Trump, then the president-elect, about their findings about the Russian government’s efforts to interfere in the election that Trump had just won.

    Baker strongly urged Comey not to go through with his plans to reassure Trump by telling him he was not under investigation by the FBI. “I didn't think it was accurate to say that he wasn't under investigation,” said Baker.

    As Baker saw it, Trump was clearly a “subject” of the investigation because, as head of his own campaign, he was among those whose activities were being examined by the FBI.

    But Comey thought explaining that distinction to the president-elect would have been “too confusing.” It would have been “hard to understand, be misinterpreted and he just didn't think it was the right thing to do,” Baker said about Comey’s view about what to say.

    In the end, Comey told Trump he was not under investigation—a comment that came back to haunt Comey when he later refused to say the same thing publicly, a key factor that led to Trump’s decision to fire him.

    In the wide-ranging interview, Baker also made these observations about the Russia probe:

    He defended the bureau’s handling of the so-called dossier by former British spy Christopher Steele, saying after the bureau received it in 2016, “we took it seriously. We didn't necessarily take it literally like it was literally true in every respect. But it was something that we were obligated to ... assess.” When the bureau that October included Steele’s information in the application to wiretap former Trump campaign advisor Carter Page it was because “at the end of the day the FBI believed [Steele] to be reliable” even though questions were later raised about the credibility of some of his allegations.

    He said the FBI decided against giving a “defensive” briefing to the Trump campaign about the Russia probe during the summer of 2016 — warning the then candidate about Russia’s efforts — because “it was just simply we didn't know enough at the time to assess what was going on, who was connected to what, who was responsible … Can you imagine the criticism that we might have gotten had we given briefings precipitously to people that we later thought were actually suspects in some fashion then? So you've tipped them off about the investigation. ... We only knew the tip of the iceberg.”

    He said “it’s been horrible” to be publicly criticized by President Trump in his tweets. “It was very unnerving and sort of an out-of-body experience to have the president of the United States tweeting about you and in what I perceived to be a negative light,” he said. But at the same time,”in a strange way … when the president first started to attack me, and throughout this period, my friends have rallied around me. And so I've been extremely fortunate and lucky to, to have that. I've made the analogy to feeling like Jimmy Stewart at the end of ‘It’s a Wonderful Life.’”
