The Mueller Report cost American taxpayers just more than $25 million through December according to The Weeklyn on March 22nd. The Conservative Treehouse is reporting today that the Report has now been submitted to AG William Barr and Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein. AG Barr will commission a “Principle Conclusion” summary report that he will deliver to congress.
The article at The Conservative Treehouse reports:
The summary report from AGBarr will be given to House and Senate judiciary oversight committees before wider dissemination. The Chair of the House Judiciary Committee is Jerry Nadler (ranking member Doug Collins); the Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee is Lindsey Graham (Vice-Chair Dianne Feinstein). AG William Barr may also brief those committees, or he may assign DAG Rosenstein to the briefing.
Depending on conversations between the DOJ and congressional leadership, there’s also a possibility of a more extensive briefing covering details within the Mueller investigation. However, that briefing would likely be reserved for the intelligence oversight group known as the “Gang of Eight”: Nancy Pelosi, Kevin McCarthy, Adam Schiff, Devin Nunes, Mitch McConnell, Chuck Schumer, Richard Burr and Mark Warner.
Due to the politics surrounding the Barr report, it is likely the White House will be given the Principle Conclusion Summary around the same time as congress. The White House (executive branch) may also be able to review the full underlying documentation behind the summary…. that’s likely where the political fight for the ‘narrative’ will take place.
The article at The Conservative Treehouse explains the next steps in the drama:
Each of the Mueller team members will be leaking information, and building innuendo narratives about their investigative activity, to the Lawfare community and media. The ‘small group‘ effort will certainly work in concert with political allies in congress and the DNC. This is just how they roll.
Keep in mind the larger picture and most likely political sequence:
- Mueller report.
- Chosen One.
- Cummings Impeachment Schedule, known as “oversight plans” (April 15)
- Horowitz report
#2 and #3 are not sequence specific; they may reverse. However, the larger objective of the resistance apparatus will remain consistent.
The narrative around the Mueller investigative material will launch the chosen DNC candidate (possibly Biden). The professional political class will work to lift this candidate by exploiting the Mueller investigative file as ammunition against President Trump.
As pre-planned within Speaker Pelosi’s rules, House Oversight Chairman has until April 15, 2019, to deliver his schedule for congressional hearings to Speaker Pelosi. That hearing schedule is based around witnesses they can extract from the Mueller material.
Nothing happens organically. All of the broad strokes are planned well in advance, and the democrats just fill in the details as they successfully cross pre-determined tripwires. Once we know where the tripwires are located, their behavior becomes predictable.
…As Pelosi and Schumer wage their political battle and attempt to weaponize the Mueller report for maximum damage, Senator Graham will be exploring the DOJ and FBI corruption of the FISA court and spygate. That angle is a risk to multiple Obama-era administration officials.
President Trump and team have genuine political ammunition that includes FISA abuse, the ‘spygate’ surveillance scandal and an upcoming OIG Horowitz report.
Speaker Pelosi and team have the fabricated political ammunition of the Mueller probe to weaponize.
Both teams will now go to battle on the road to 2020.
This is a sad moment for our country–even after the investigation is concluded, the political slander of people in government continues, and a number of people have had their lives and reputations ruined for no reason.
