All the things Barr’s summary of the Mueller report didn’t say
Democratic lawmakers are not happy with Attorney General William P. Barr after The Washington Post obtained information that his summary of Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s report omitted certain details. No one in Congress has seen Mueller’s full, nearly 400-page, report on the investigation into President Trump and Russian interference in the 2016 election.
Now, Mueller’s team indicates that it’s also not happy with Barr’s summary, saying it leaves out key details. Rosalind S. Helderman covers politics and joins Post Reports host Martine Powers to talk about why the Mueller team isn’t satisfied with the attorney general’s summary.
