Jerry Nadler is terrified his stunt with Mueller tomorrow will backfire so he tried to stir up the pot and start a conspiracy theory.
He tried to push the false narrative that Bill Barr was limiting Bob Mueller’s testimony tomorrow. the BS story spread far and wide until it was shattered by the facts.
Bob Mueller asked Bill Barr and DOJ for guidance tomorrow so Bill Barr gave him some. No conspiracy, just a bunch of desperate Dems who know tomorrow the jig is finally up.
From Fox News: “At his press conference, Bob had said that he intended to stick with the public report and not go beyond that,” Barr said in an interview.
“And in conversations with the department, his staff was reiterating that that was their position and they asked us for guidance in writing to explain or to tell them [what] our position was. So we responded in writing. The department sent the guidance that they requested.”
Asked directly if it was Mueller who asked for the letter, Barr replied, “Yes.”
The letter, obtained by Fox News on Monday, was signed by Associate Deputy Attorney General Bradley Weinsheimer.
The letter said, “Should you testify, the Department understands that testimony regarding the work of the Special Counsel’s Office will be governed by the terms you outlined on May 29 — specifically, that the information you discuss during your testimony appears in, and does ‘not go beyond,’ the public version of your March 22, 2019 report to the Attorney General or your May 29 public statement.”
Speaking to Fox News, Barr also hit back at Nadler, who during a CNN interview Tuesday called the letter “incredibly arrogant” for trying to “instruct” Mueller what to say.
“He was misinformed as to the facts,” Barr said.
The attorney general also declined to comment on the Democratic-controlled House holding him and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in criminal contempt over questions having to do with the Trump administration’s proposed citizenship question to the 2020 census.
“Goes with the territory these days,” Barr said.
