All the more reason to release the report publicly.

Isn't it in Trump's best interest to release the report? If he is proved innocent in the mind of the voting public?  :-X

But the report is going to be released publicly - just redacted as is required by law to remove 4 things:

1- Grand Jury matters (that's easy, it's Federal Law)
2- Compromising Intelligence (more difficult/subject to intelligence agencies)
3- Ongoing investigations (tough one, since Mueller has referred so much to other offices)
4- Privacy and Reputations of innocent 3rd parties (those that were investigated/interviewed, but no crime found)

Expect to see lots of redactions, regardless of what political parties are demanding. The law needs to be followed.

I personally would be fine with the redactions as long as it's done legally.

Usually there is a team established to perform such redcations in a fair way, is there not?

Of course I'll have you note the following:

Quote
In prior cases,  like the Jaworski report in 1974 and the Starr report in 1998, the full reports were transmitted in Congress unredacted, including grand jury testimony, within a few days of completion

So I'll ask, why should this time be any different?



Secondly, I believe the House Judiciary Committee (or some House committee) may be able to view the un-redacted version privately as the basis for their own investigation.

Release of the report is not required. The report is submitted to the Attorney General - and he can decide whether to actually release the
report - but he is the highest law of the land. Congress is not the law. The laws are in place to protect individuals. This should be
secondary to political games that Congress wishes to play.

Let a select few in Congress have their wish with the catch that should it leak they pay 7 figure fines and do jail time. I dont have an issue with people honestly attempting to do their jobs. But its clear the modus operandi for these lefty nuts, is, and has been, to selectively skew, and then leak info to the press. Thats the only reason they want the report or the tax returns. They have no intention of doing anything but leaking or using it to ratchet up more nonsense.

See I'm actually generally OK with this.

It's important to have the report reviewed by those without a conflict of interest, as the AG reports directly to the POTUS.

Why is this important? Well one reason is the following:

Billy "Barr wrote that Mueller did not find that the Trump campaign colluded with Russian efforts to tip the 2016 election — or at least, that the evidence Mueller found wasn’t enough to allow him to charge a crime."

Yet crimes are not the same thing as impeachable offenses


Hence the reason it is imperative that an independent group review the full report.

As cubsfan so eloquently said, "The laws are in place to protect individuals". Well, there are laws that define what an impeachable offense is (namely "treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors"). If only we, as a country, would decide to follow them as well.   ::)

The criminals in the Obama/Clinton Crime syndicate are turning on each other in regards to Russian Hoax:

Be interesting to see who cops a deal, since they are blaming each other for lying, etc...
