By Daily Wire. After Attorney General William Barr sent his four-page letter to Congress with the key findings of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, Mueller sent a letter to Barr explaining he was unhappy with how the media was characterizing what took place.
“The summary letter the Department sent to Congress and released to the public late in the afternoon of March 24 did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance of this Office’s work and conclusions. We communicated that concern to the Department on the morning of March 25,” Mueller wrote. “This is now public confusion about critical aspects of the results of our investigation. This threatens to undermine a central purpose for which the Department appointed the Special Counsel: to assure full public confidence in the outcome of the investigations.” . . .
Wednesday night, the Washington Post and New York Times clung to this narrative to Mueller criticized Barr’s letter on the investigation’s key findings. Their reports launched a news cycle focused solely on what was in the letter, despite both outlets omitting the full letter from their reports (coincidental? I think not).
House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows made an important point: why is the mainstream media clinging to this notion that Mueller was unhappy with the tone of his findings? The full report was made public two weeks ago. The point is rather moot.
1) "Mueller criticized Barr's letter"—except Mueller admitted letter was accurate. Pathetic spin.
2) Barr made the full report public 2 weeks ago–why in the world is his letter even relevant? It's like complaining about a movie trailer 2 weeks after the full movie comes out.
