Jerrold Nadler wants to review Mueller report for 'very bad deeds'

Release appears imminent of a redacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller's almost 400-page report on Russian meddling in the 2016 USA presidential election, but sparring over Mueller's conclusions is already rampant.

Attorney General William Barr echoed Trump's insistence last week in congressional testimony that his campaign was spied upon, although he told lawmakers he had so far found no proof. "What he said is, 'Look, it's going to take a while to process the report".

Then, the next day, before a panel of the Senate Appropriations Committee, Barr stoked a whole new controversy when he said he'd launched his own informal inquiry into the origins of the FBI's initial counterintelligence investigation into Russian Federation and the 2016 Trump campaign, which began the summer of that year at the height of the White House race.

Nadler said that even though Barr concluded no obstruction charges should be brought against Trump, his decision should not go without review.

The summary also indicated that Mueller's team failed to prove that Trump obstructed the investigation, but the probe did not "exonerate" the president. "And that's for Congress to judge whether the president obstructed justice or not, and the public ultimately". But there still may have been proof of some very bad deeds and very bad motives.

"The fact of the matter is, we should see and judge for ourselves". But given what little Democrats have seen of Mueller's findings, they want more answers on exactly how the Justice Department came to that conclusion.

Hasen said he was hoping to learn how much cooperation there was between Russians and other foreign agents who hacked the Democratic National Committee, tried to crack into American voter registration databases or spread "dirt" on Hillary Clinton - which Donald Trump Jr. gleefully hoped to get from a Russian attorney in an infamous Trump Tower meeting.
