    Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) on Saturday called for the immediate release of "all backup and source information" for the Mueller report after internet sleuth @almostjingo (Rosie Memos) discovered that the special counsel's office deceptively edited content which was then cited as evidence of possible obstruction.

    "It's all a fraud" tweeted Nunes, replying to a tweet by @JohnWHuber (Undercover Huber), who also posted a comparison between the Mueller report and a newly released transcript of a November 2017 voicemail message left by former Trump lawyer John Dowd, in which he asked former national security adviser Michael Flynn's attorney for a "heads up" if Flynn was planning on saying anything that might damage the president. 

    Mueller's team omitted key context suggesting that Dowd was trying to strongarm Flynn and possibly obstruct justice by shaping witness testimony, while the actual voicemail reveals that Dowd was careful not to tread into obstruction territory in what was a friendly and routine call between lawyers. 



    Mueller's deceptive edits beg the question; what else may have been manipulated by the special counsel to make Trump look guilty? When reached for comment by attorney 'Techno Fog' (@Techno_Fog), Dowd said of the edits: "It is unfair and despicable. It was a friendly  privileged call between counsel - with NO conflict. I think Flynn got screwed."

    DOJ Gives McGahn Immunity From Nadler Subpoena.

    What better way to ensure we don’t hear from McGahn this week than by subpoenaing a witness who’s categorically immune from testifying? 

    McGahn’s testimony is in Vol 2 of the , 99.9% of which is available to chairman Nadler, should he ever choose to read it.

    A less-redacted version of the Mueller Report is available to Nadler, Collins and 10 other lawmakers, but Nadler has not viewed it out of protest of the restrictions placed by the Justice Department.

    The Hill's John Solomon reports that Former British spy Christopher Steele made a stunning admission during an October 11, 2016 meeting with Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Kathleen Kavalec, just 10 days before the FBI used his now-discredited dossier to justify securing a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to spy on Trump campaign aide Carter Page and the campaign's ties to Russia.

    If ever there were an admission that taints the FBI’s secret warrant to surveil Donald Trump’s campaign, it sat buried for more than 2 1/2 years in the files of a high-ranking State Department official.

    According a typed summary of the meeting - which sat buried for over  2 1/2 years until an open-records litigation by Citizens United - Steele said that his client "is keen to see this information come to light prior to November 8," the date of the 2016 US election. Also in the meeting was an employee of Steele's Orbis Security firm, Tatyana Duran.

    And according to The Hill, Kavalec's notes of the meeting - including this stunning admission - do not appear to have been provided to the House Intelligence Committee for its Russia probe, according to former Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA). 

    "They tried to hide a lot of documents from us during our investigation, and it usually turns out there’s a reason for it," Nunes told The Hill's Solomon, who notes that One member of Congress had transmitted the memos to the DOJ's Inspector General, Michael Horowitz out of concern that the IG's office had never seen it either. 

    The FBI has retroactively classified Kavalec's notes on 4/25/2019, despite the fact that it was originally marked unclassified in 2016. It is set to "Declassify on 12/31/2041," 25 years after the 2016 election.

    The internet has continued to poke fun at the Mueller report, comparing the special counsel's investigation to the Fyre Festival disaster. 

    Jokes and memes flooded social media Saturday and Sunday after Mueller handed over his report to Attorney General William Barr Friday. 

    The report's conclusion set off a storm of speculation on what it will have found after a senior Justice Department official said that Mueller will file no more indictments with federal courts.

    It means the president, his inner circle of present and former confidants and his family members are out of immediate legal jeopardy.

    The nation’s capital is anticipating the release as soon as Sunday of Attorney General William Barr’s report to Congress summarizing principal findings from Special Counsel Robert Mueller, as Republicans and Democrats stake out positions on how much information should be released to Congress and the public.   

    Mueller submitted the still-secret document to Barr on Friday evening, capping an investigation into whether President Donald Trump or those around him conspired in Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, a probe that’s cast a cloud over Trump and his administration for almost two years.

    “Congress needs that evidence, and the American people need that evidence to make judgments,” House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler, a Democrat from New York, said on CNN’s “State of the Union,” one of three appearances on Sunday talk shows. “If we have to, yes, we will certainly issue subpoenas to get that information.” 

    Barr, 68, who was sworn in as Trump’s second attorney general about five weeks ago, is working with Deputy General Rod Rosenstein to figure out how to present Mueller’s conclusions, a Justice Department official said. Rosenstein appointed Mueller, a former FBI director, as special counsel in May 2017.

    Trump, who’s repeatedly called Mueller’s 22-month investigation a “witch hunt,” hasn’t commented publicly. The White House hadn’t received or been briefed on the Mueller report as of Sunday morning, spokesman Hogan Gidley said. Trump returned to one of his golf courses in Florida Sunday, after having played on Saturday while spending the weekend at the Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach.

    This is already a victory for President Donald Trump. Once the report was turned over to Attorney General William Barr, it completed Mueller's work. He is not recommending any new indictments. Thus, there will be no indictment for perjury or obstruction of justice arising out of the infamous Trump Tower meeting attended by members of the Trump family and Russians. 

    There is a question of how specific and how tough Mueller's report will be on individuals who are not indicted. My guess is he will not say things like ousted FBI Director James Comey said about Hillary Clinton. Unlike in Comey's case, it would not be improper for the chief prosecutor on a case to express his opinion. But I don't think Mueller will be accusatory. He may say that some people, possibly including Trump, exercised poor judgment in situations, but go no further. 

    Mueller indictments of members of Trump's family — much less Trump himself — were always a long shot. Mueller appears to lack hard evidence of collusion. If he had substantial evidence, he would have called in Donald Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner for questioning. Russian collusion appears to be a dead end.

    But the greatest threat to Trump and his family is from New York, namely, the Manhattan District Attorney, the New York Attorney General and the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York. They have easier cases than Mueller. These include bribery and election-law violations involving Michael Cohen and Trump's alleged tryst, where Trump appears to have been an unindicted co-conspirator; a variety of crimes involving the Trump Organization, including evasion of various state taxes and various laws and regulation; misuse of the Trump Foundation; and possibly violations by the inaugural committee, which probably could be prosecuted in both Washington, D.C., and New York.
