A Side-by-Side Comparison of Barr’s vs. Mueller’s Statements about Special Counsel Report

Original Article

Posted By: old_clock_says, 6/5/2019 4:31:50 PM

Wednesday marks one week since Robert Mueller broke his silence and made a formal statement on the special counsel’s report on the 2016 Russian election interference. The Chart below compares Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s May 29 public statement with statements made by Attorney General William Barr. Whether or not Mueller was intentionally trying to correct the record, the differences between what he and Barr said are, in many cases, stark. Some of the differences involve near complete contradictions—in other words Mueller’s statement and Barr’s statements cannot both be true.

No problem figuring this out. Without a doubt the truth is coming from Barr. I wouldn't believe a word coming from that ugly mouth of Mueller's.

I much prefer the old Texan rancher analogy/summary: "While we recognize that the subject did not steal any horses, he is obviously guilty of trying to resist being hanged for it."

LOL Mueller's report: "there was insufficient evidence to charge a broader conspiracy". What does insufficient evidence mean? Any evidence of a conspiracy would be sufficient to charge someone. We have listened to the MSM and Dems accuse Trump of conspiracy for almost 3 years. Barr recognized that there is no basis for a charge...hence innocent. The article was a waste of time

Mueller and Weissman are both dirty cops. Their modus operandi is always to hide exculpatory evidence.

Tensions were already smoldering in the Oregon Senate Wednesday, when Sen. Brian Boquist, R-Dallas, poured gasoline on the situation, suggesting he would shoot and potentially kill any state trooper sent to haul him unwillingly back to the Capitol. After Senate Republican Leader Herman Baertschiger Jr. said Tuesday that his caucus was “prepared to take actions” to prevent passage of a major climate change bill, Gov.

The Transportation Department under Secretary Elaine Chao designated a special liaison to help with grant applications and other priorities from her husband Mitch McConnell’s state of Kentucky, paving the way for grants totaling at least $78 million for favored projects as McConnell prepared to campaign for reelection. Chao’s aide Todd Inman, who stated in an email to McConnell’s Senate office that Chao had personally asked him to serve as an intermediary, helped advise the senator and local Kentucky officials on grants with special significance for McConnell — including a highway-improvement project in a McConnell political stronghold that had been twice rejected for previous grant applications.
Mexico Agreed to Take Border Actions Months Before Trump Announced Tariff Deal 28 replies

The deal to avert tariffs that President Trump announced with great fanfare on Friday night consists largely of actions that Mexico had already promised to take in prior discussions with the United States over the past several months, according to officials from both countries who are familiar with the negotiations. Friday’s joint declaration says Mexico agreed to the “deployment of its National Guard throughout Mexico, giving priority to its southern border.” But the Mexican government had already pledged to do that in March during secret talks in Miami between Kirstjen Nielsen, then the secretary of homeland security, and Olga Sanchez, the Mexican secretary of the interior, the officials said.

In the video, he told the story of how, as a liberal college dropout struggling to find his place in the world, he had gotten sucked into a vortex of far-right politics on YouTube.

Now, there are clear signs that is changing. Secret talking points obtained by VICE News show national Republicans are preparing to defend the law, which has not yet taken effect, but will almost certainly be struck down by the courts.

The list was described by three people familiar with it.

A black transgender woman wanted to be heard, but the white men wanted to celebrate. The scene at New York City's Stonewall Inn on Saturday, as reported by multiple witnesses on social media, showed how long-simmering tensions between transgender women of color and white gay men have boiled over during the celebration of World Pride and the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising. The unidentified woman wanted to address the crowd inside the Greenwich Village gay bar where patrons fought back against police harassment 50 years ago, birthing the LGBTQ movement. She arrived unannounced and disrupted a drag show, drawing an unfriendly response at first.

I’d urge everyone to read my colleague Jim Geraghty’s post on the thuggery this weekend in Portland. It was appalling to watch masked Antifa thugs attack Andy Ngo, and it was also appalling that the police weren’t immediately present to arrest his attackers. Antifa’s propensity to violence is well known, and while I’d love to hear a sympathetic explanation for the absence of police, the lack of response looks a lot like a dereliction of duty. There is, however, a simple and well-known legal reform that will go a long way towards deterring Antifa violence — even when police aren’t close by, but iPhones are. It’s called an anti-masking law.

Of course, it’s a summer holiday week. So, this good news somehow slipped by most media critics of this president. But the latest government figures just showed that in April the United States produced a new record amount of oil per day — a stunning 12.16 million barrels of oil every 24 hours. [Snip] Of more significance, the oil production jump makes the United States the world’s largest producer of oil, ahead of the usual slippery suspects like Saudi Arabia and Russia. How’s that for energy independence? And how can presidential debaters turn that into a negative?

He responded it will a bigger issue for Mr. Trump. “The president gets elected to solve problems, that why he gets hired, or she gets hired to solve these problems, he hasn’t solved them, he’s made matters worse,” the Ohio Democrat said.

Texas Border Patrol agents fear that a six-foot alligator who lives in the Rio Grande, which migrants swim across daily to get into the United States from Mexico, may carry out a deadly attack. Federal agents in Eagle Pass, Texas, have known about the reptile for several years, but say they have seen it more often in recent months at a section of the river where most migrants illegally cross in the region.
