I’ve been hearing about the kerfuffle regarding Robert Hur’s report on Biden’s retention of classified documents. [doj]
I haven’t read it and probably won’t bother; apparently the problem is that Hur is doing similar crap to what James Comey did, publicly speculating regarding something that isn’t relevant to the investigation, e.g.: Biden’s memory.
The whole thing would be amusing if it didn’t matter – some Trump haters unrealistically expected the Mueller report to sink Trump, which it didn’t (as I pointed out at the time, Mueller was a reactionary with a history of burying misbehavior, hardly the kind of investigator we’d expect to come out strongly in favor of something something…) but none of that mattered because Barr buried the report and substituted, instead, his own version or “summary.”
My question is: “why hasn’t the Biden administration released the original Mueller report?”
It beggars the imagination to pretend that no copies of the original still exist. Even if all that was done was to go ask Mueller to sit down with a microphone and summarize his findings. Even that would be unnecessary – Mueller and his team would have created substantial amounts of documentation recording their interviews and research. Where is that stuff? Bill Barr could not possibly have made all of that cease to exist.
The public deserves to know. “But his files!” etc.
[Now I have to go over to Daily Kos and post a different version of this that doesn’t contain any snark about Biden because, man, the pearl-clutching and down-flagging you get if you point out that Biden is too old, and supports Israeli genocide is just too much.]
If I were Biden, I’d order it released, and have some AI do a special version that looks like it was written in crayon, in extra large letters. But Biden’s a wimp. So is Garland.
