House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler spoke this afternoon following the release of the Mueller report and blasted Attorney General Bill Barr for showing a “willingness to undermine his own department in order to protect President Trump.”

“Barr’s words and actions,” he continued, “suggest he has been disingenuous and misleading, in saying the president is cleared of wrongdoing.”

Nadler called out Barr for “ignor[ing]” a significant part of the Mueller report in the section he quoted from in his initial summary letter.

Rosenstein: 'Bizarre' to say Barr misleading public on Mueller report

Rosenstein: 'Bizarre' to say Barr misleading public on Mueller report Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein defended Attorney General William Barr's summary of the Special Counsel's report in an interview published Wednesday. "He's being as forthcoming as he can, and so this notion that he's trying to mislead people, I think is just completely bizarre," Rosenstein told The Wall Street J ournal. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.

Barr had quoted Mueller’s report as saying, “While this report does not conclude that the president committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.”

Nadler brought up this from the report out today:

“If we had confidence after a thorough investigation of the facts that the president clearly did not commit obstruction of justice, we would state so. Based on the facts and the applicable legal standards, however, we are unable to reach that judgment.”

Nadler made it clear he wants to see the full report without redactions.

Nadler says subpoena for full Mueller report coming 'in the next few hours'.
House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler said Friday that he will subpoena the Justice Department for an unredacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.
