'It was bad enough when the media immediately opted to play along with Barr's dubious, three-and-a-half page summary. pretending that the cherry-picked document was in any way a credible stand-in for the contents of sprawling, two-year investigation. But by having spent the entire week since then doing its best to prop up the Barr summary while raising virtually no collective demands about seeing the Mueller report itself, the press has played an absolutely central role in the unfolding cover-up.In a country facing unprecedented political polarization, there's actually huge bipartisan agreement that the Mueller report needs to be made public. That’s a stunning development that received very little news coverage this week.'

Mueller Report Exceeds 300 Pages, Raising Questions About Four-Page Summary

The page count suggests the special counsel detailed his conclusions beyond Justice Department requirements. And it raises questions about what the attorney general might have left out of his summary.Barr's summary of Mueller's findings leaves behind far more questions than answers. Here are some of the biggest ones, via The Moscow Project:

  • Donald Trump, Jr., Jared Kushner, and Paul Manafort took the infamous June 9, 2016, meeting in Trump Tower with Russians who had promised them dirt on Hillary Clinton. What did they discuss? And why does Barr suggest that the campaign rebuffed outreach from Russia?
  • Trump pursued a Trump Tower Moscow deal until at least June of 2016. He actively sought a business deal with a hostile foreign government while campaigning. Have Trump's financial entanglements with Russia compromised him during the campaign or as president?
  • Michael Flynn lied to the FBI, and he's likely going to prison for it. He interviewed with Mueller's team for more than 62 hours. What did they learn?
  • How broad was the investigation's scope? Did Mueller look at Trump's finances/connections with Russia prior to 2016? Did he examine Trump's foreign policy actions as president?
  • Did Mueller's team investigate Trump's closed-door meetings with Putinthe contents of which Trump guards with an iron fist, even going so far as to confiscate his interpreter's notes?

Trump's associates made contact with Russia-linked operatives more than 100 times during the campaign and transition. There is no question as to whether Trump's campaign did anything wrongthey did, and many of them will serve time because they lied about it.

However, Russiagate did serve its principal purpose, which was to divert attention from the crimes and incompetence of the Democratic Party and the elites who run it. There has been no further investigation or significant comment about the fraud in the Democratic Primary or the serious breach of national security by Hillary Clinton. The fantasy created by the Dems has served them very well indeed.

Edited to add: I forgot to mention the very serious matter of the Democratic Party's role in misrepresenting the facts to the FISA Court, i.e. the failure to advise the Court that the fraudulent Steele Dossier was paid for by the Democratic Party. But, then, we know that the elites are not held accountable for their crimes. For one example, ask John Brennan, who lied under oath to Congress. Oh, yes, he is one of the persons on whose statements are most relied upon to support the whole Russiagate fantasy...a good example of the lack of credibility of the entire charade.

One final thought. Why worry about any meddling by Russia anyway? Israel owns the U.S. Congress. AIPAC meddles with our elections with impunity...and without comment by the corporate media or by "our" representatives in Congress. That is the meddling which is so damaging to the people of this Country. And it has the stamp of approval by those on whom we rely to protect us, all due to the bribe money they receive. Typical hypocrisy and duplicity. The U.S. electoral/political system is totally corrupt. It is a fraud and a sham. There is no functioning democracy in this Country.

The Democratic Party, which manufactured the Russiagate fantasy, should be highly motivated to bury the report. I hope the entire report is made public so the establishment "liberals" will finally shut the hell up about it....maybe.
