    Read the article and you’ll find a “series of misrepresentations”

    Judge Amy Berman Jackson ruled that the contents of the memo “call[] into question the accuracy of Attorney General Barr’s March 24 representation to Congress,” specifically that Mueller had left it to the attorney general to determine whether the conduct his report describes is a crime, and that OLC’s description of the do ent “served to obscure the true purpose of the memorandum,” which CREW argued was to help Barr spin his version of the Mueller Report.
    After reviewing the OLC memo, Judge Jackson found that it “raises serious questions about how the Department of Justice could make this series of representations to a court,” concluding that “It is time for the public to see that [the memo], too.”

    Decision here: https://www.citizensforethics.org/wp...public_doc.pdf

    And of even greater importance to this decision, the affidavits are so inconsistent with evidence in the record, they are not worthy of credence. The review of the unredacted do ent in camera reveals that the su ions voiced by the judge in EPIC and the plaintiff here were well-founded, and that not only was the Attorney General being disingenuous then, but DOJ has been disingenuous to this Court with respect to the existence of a decision-making process that should be shielded by the deliberative process privilege. The agency’s redactions and incomplete explanations obfuscate the true purpose of the memorandum, and the excised portions belie the notion that it fell to the Attorney General to make a prosecution decision or that any such decision was on the table at any time

    damn, it burns

    Federal judge accuses the DOJ of lying in court?

    You don't see that very often.

    The cover up could not last forever -

    and trump/barr/traitors were just banking on sleepy joe to go along with past history and just allow the corruption and treason to just fade away under cover...

    but Merrick Garland (and this particular Judge) and the rest of the career pros in the gubmint might not go along with the cover up...

    Thespeed by which Attorney General Barr released to the public the summaryof Special Counsel Mueller’s principal conclusions, coupled with the factthat Attorney General Barr failed to provide a thorough representation ofthe findings set forth in the Mueller Report, causes the Court to questionwhether Attorney General Barr’s intent was to create a one-sided narrativeabout the Mueller Report – a narrative that is clearly in some respectssubstantively at odds with the redacted version of the Mueller Report.


    called it

    piece of treasonous - Rosenstein -

    sat in that meeting and concocted a letter to shield Barr and Trump and redacted their ery with the intent to shield everything under "executive privilege" and OLC directives -

    while Barr made the claim that his opinion/decision to NOT charge the traitor - was a decision based on law -

    instead that decision was being crafted by rosensteins team of traitors with the intent of shielding the president regardless of the law and of his crimes

    Basically Mueller wanted to prosecute. Barr didn’t. And his reasons looked suspect to her

    What makes you think so? Seems a premature conclusion based on limited info.

    We don't know what Mueller wanted, and IIRC he said was special "investigator" and not special "prosecutor".

    He also went along with DoJ bull that the President can't be indicted.

    He did do ent 9 instances of impeachable obstruction, worse than Repug Nixon, which bag Barr covered up.

    And we have not yet seen the entire Mueller report

    Dunno. Be interesting to see what shakes out.

    They were so far beyond the pale and so generally incompetent as a whole, it would not shock me to find out that they bent the rule of law until it broke in a few cases.

    Two things. First, they were always going to appeal. Second, IF Barr is being investigated, certain portions of the memo might be used as an exhibit.

    A procedural appeal already was in the works. We will see if the rest is unredacted, but it’s a couple of pages and won’t be a good look for Barr

    Garland is protecting Biden from the same.

    It's not a good look, but it makes ins utional sense.

    Covering Barr's "imprecision."

    Judge Jackson called it deception. Biden's DOJ is fighting that.
