“A fairly anemic effort.” That’s what Attorney General called the counterintelligence investigation against the threat of Russian collusion in the 2016 Presidential campaign.

On today’s show, we discussed Attorney General Bill Barr’s testimony before the U.S. Senate regarding his summary of the over 400-page Mueller Report, as well as a letter sent from Special Counsel Robert Mueller allegedly complaining about Barr’s summary. 

According to the AG’s testimony, Mueller had no issue with his summary:

“My understanding was his concern was not the accuracy of the statement of the findings in my letter, but that he wanted more out there to provide additional context to explain his reasoning and why he didn’t reach a decision on obstruction.”
We thought the Attorney General was cool and direct amidst the so-called grilling of Democrat Senators.

In one exchange, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) tried to trip up the AG, implying he hadn’t provided documentation: “When you talk about the executive summaries that Mueller provided you, they are the enclosed documents that we have not been provided?”

Sen. Whitehouse was visibly flummoxed when AG Barr corrected him, stating: “They have been provided. They’re in the report. The summary’s in the report.”

When questioned about his statement that the FBI spied on the Trump investigation and if that was simply in reference to the FISA warrant for Carter Page. The AG’s response indicated that he was concerned that there could be more to the story:

“Many people seem to assume that the only intelligence collection that occurred was a single confidential informant and a FISA warrant. I’d like to find out whether that is in fact true. It strikes me as a fairly anemic effort, if that was the counterintelligence effort designed to stop the threat as it’s been represented.”

The meat of the matter was and remains simple: did the Trump campaign collude with Russia to influence the 2016 Presidential election? The answer: still a resounding “no.”

We reminded everyone that, constitutionally, the President had the authority to terminate the special counsel, and he did NOT. President Trump fully cooperated with the investigation, believing it was nothing more than a hoax and a witch hunt, because he knew the conclusion would be “no collusion.”
