Desperation? NYT Gets In On The Spin Game During AG Barr's Hearing On Trump-Russia Collusion

It’s called the Democrat-media complex. And you’re seeing it play out in real time. Attorney General William Barr is testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee as I’m writing this. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) have just finished their opening statements; Graham’s opening was colorful, Feinstein’s was trash.

On the eve of this hearing concerning the Russia probe conducted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller concerning whether there was any collusion between the Trump camp and the Kremlin during the 2016 election. It’s been the lingering issue dominating the news and this town for over two years. It was based on absolute crap. There was zero evidence to back up the allegations; some of us knew that from the get-go. And now this report by Mueller totally detonated that narrative. The Left may try to spin it, but you can’t polish a turd. The collusion narrative is dead. Now, we have the Democrats going on this obstruction nonsense. Trump wasn’t charged with obstruction. There wasn’t enough evidence. Liberal pundits say so because they don’t like the president. That’s not evidence. It also doesn’t make it true. It’s also a laughably predictable reaction from the liberal media. So, what is The New York Times doing to help their allies in the Democratic Party keep the winds of conspiracy blowing? Oh, it’s peddling this non-issue of a letter between Barr and Mueller:

The special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, pushed Attorney General William P. Barr twice to release more of his investigative findings in late March after Mr. Barr outlined the inquiry’s main conclusions in a letter to Congress, citing a gap between Mr. Barr’s interpretation and Mr. Mueller’s report, according to a letter released on Wednesday.

The letter, from Mr. Mueller, revealed deep concern about how Mr. Barr handled the initial release of the special counsel’s findings.

Mr. Mueller’s office first informed the Justice Department of their concerns on March 25, a day after Mr. Barr released his letter clearing Mr. Trump but declined to release the special counsel’s findings themselves.

This piggybacks off of The Washington Post’s story, which added that there was also a discussion between the two men, Barr and Mueller, plus this little fact that’s buried in the story [emphasis mine]:

Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III wrote a letter in late March complaining to Attorney General William P. Barr that a four-page memo to Congress describing the principal conclusions of the investigation into President Trump “did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance” of Mueller’s work, according to a copy of the letter reviewed Tuesday by The Washington Post.

The letter and a subsequent phone call between the two men reveal the degree to which the longtime colleagues and friends disagreed as they handled the legally and politically fraught task of investigating the president. Democrats in Congress are likely to scrutinize Mueller’s complaints to Barr as they contemplate the prospect of opening impeachment proceedings and mull how hard to press for Mueller himself to testify publicly.

[…]

When Barr pressed Mueller on whether he thought Barr’s memo to Congress was inaccurate, Mueller said he did notbut felt that the media coverage of it was misinterpreting the investigation, officials said.

Again, it doesn’t negate the fact that the report concluded that there was no obstruction. There was no collusion. And the Democrats and their liberal media minions lost. Oh, and did you know the private sector jobs report blew away expectations. Over a quarter of a million people found work in April and we grew at 3.2 percent. The economy is booming
