CNN: Nadler Demands DoJ Communications Between Mueller and William Barr Regarding the Report

‘Few have seen the Mueller report but some on the special counsel team are frustrated with how the attorney general summarized the findings in his four-page letter to Congress’


TAPPER: "Welcome to The Lead, I’m Jake Tapper. we begin with some breaking news in our politics lead. Just moments ago, the Democratic chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Jerry Nadler, demanded that the Justice Department turn over all communications between Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office and Attorney General Barr’s office regarding the Mueller report. This move coming as sources tell CNN that investigators from the Special Counsel’s team are complaining that Attorney General Barr’s four-page summary of the Mueller report, which the President has heralded as a complete exoneration, underplays the reality of the 400-plus page report and what they say is damaging and derogatory information they compile, particularly when it comes to allegations against the President of obstruction of justice. According to a source familiar with the investigation, a member of the Mueller team have also voiced frustration they cannot publicly address what they see as discrepancies between Barr’s summary and Mueller’s actual findings. CNN's Sara Murray kicks off our coverage."
