One can only imagine the bewilderment that has beset The Beltway this weekend.
Robert Mueller, the democratic folk hero poised to oust a sitting President for alleged “collusion” with a foreign power, has finally bequeathed upon the world his “final report”.
While this was originally billed as supposedly joyous occasion for the democrats, the simple fact that this final action by Mueller came without any further indictments within the Trump camp has a great many on the left side of the aisle despondent. This was, after all, their supposed chance to somehow nullify the results of the 2016 election.
Certainly, we mustn’t take Mueller’s lack of further indictments as much of an indication, however. The next step in the process will be for the Department of Justice to painstakingly comb through the massive report. Then, after digesting the material himself, Attorney General Bob Barr will begin the process of sharing this information.
To Barr’s benefit, he has stated that he has an undying commitment to transparency in the matter, even going so far as to suggest that he may have material available for congress to review as early as this weekend.
In a brief interview, Mr. Trump’s lawyer, Rudolph W. Giuliani, was circumspect about what comes next. “We are confident the attorney general will make the right decision,” he said. “He has to consider the legal matters and rules. I’m confident he’ll make the right call. He’s a very good lawyer — a fine lawyer. We’re very comfortable with any decision.”
Mr. Giuliani said that he planned to remain in Washington over the weekend, in part because Mr. Barr said he may update Congress on Mr. Mueller’s findings soon.
With the American people clamoring for an answer in the case of purported “Russian collusion”, Bill Barr’s pace is of the utmost concern.
