Brennan: ‘I Was Disappointed’ AG Barr Summarized Mueller’s 400 Page Report So Quickly

‘I had hopes that William Barr would pursue his responsibilities in a non-partisan, apolitical way’


BRENNAN: “And for William Barr, in basically 48 hours to go through a 300, 400 page report and then shape the narrative so early, I was disappointed. Because I had, you know, hopes that William Barr was going to pursue his responsibilities in a non-partisan, apolitical way. Yes he’s Republican, but he also has tremendous reputation for respecting the institution of Department of Justice. And that narrative that came out early on was seen as giving Donald Trump sort of a pass on some of this. And that’s why it is important for the Mueller report to come out."
