DOJ Strikes Down Congressional Request for Mueller Report

Being told to get lost by the Department of Justice is an honor that Jerry Nadler can now count as his own.

There is a cavernous divide among democrats and republicans in Washington DC this week, as dueling interpretations of the Mueller report continue to dominate the media.

On the right, President Trump and nearly all of the GOP seem to agree that Robert Mueller’s 22 months long investigation was little more than an exercise in futility.  Trump himself has proclaimed “Game Over” after the report’s release, even going so far as to co-opt imagery from the insanely popular HBO show Game of Thrones.

The democrats, however, are convinced that this is either the beginning of the end, or the end of the beginning…whichever will allow them to push forward in their “resistance” to the President.

In that effort, high ranking democrats have repeatedly attempted to subpoena the full and un-redacted version of Mueller’s report, as well as the underlying evidence.

The Department of Justice has responded today with an emphatic “no”.

DOJ spokesperson Kerri Kupec said in a statement that Attorney General Bill Barr provided Mueller’s report on Thursday with only “minimal redactions” and, “in the interest of transparency,” the department had provided certain members of Congress, including Nadler, with a report that had “even fewer redactions.”

“In light of this, Congressman Nadler’s subpoena is premature and unnecessary. The Department will continue to work with Congress to accommodate its legitimate requests consistent with the law and long-recognized executive branch interests,” Kupec continued.

This move will likely only serve to further infuriate the democrats, who so far have been unsatisfied with any and all responses by Attorney General Bill Barr.
