A federal judge has ordered the release of a key Justice Department memo supporting former Attorney William Barr’s conclusion that former President Donald Trump should not be prosecuted for obstruction of justice over episodes investigated by special counsel Robert Mueller.

U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson issued that ruling in a withering opinion that accused Barr of being “disingenuous” when describing Mueller’s findings and found that the Justice Department was not candid with the court about the purpose and role of the 2019 memo prepared by Justice’s Office of Legal Counsel.

The article goes on to state the following:

In response to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, Justice Department attorneys argued that the memo was part of the process of advising Barr on whether Trump should be prosecuted, but Jackson said the analysis consisted of a post hoc rationalization of a decision already made.

Barr said at the time that he’d come to his decision “in consultation with the Office of Legal Counsel and other Department lawyers,” but he did not publicize the OLC’s memo.

Barr announced the decision in a four-page letter to Congress in March 2019 and wrote that “the evidence developed during the Special Counsel’s investigation is not sufficient to establish that the President committed an obstruction-of-justice offense.”

Jackson wrote that Barr “appeared before Congress to deliver the report. He asserted that he and the Deputy Attorney General reached the conclusion he had announced in the March 24 letter ‘in consultation with the Office of Legal Counsel and other Department lawyers. What remains at issue today is a memorandum to the Attorney General dated March 24, 2019, that specifically addresses the subject matter of the letter transmitted to Congress. It is time for the public to see that, too.”

At the time, Mueller’s team concluded that “if we had confidence after a thorough investigation of the facts that the President clearly did not commit obstruction of justice, we would so state.”

“Based on the facts and the applicable legal standards, however, we are unable to reach that judgment,” the team added.

According to the report, the Justice Department does have the ability appeal the judge’s order to release the memo, adding that a spokesperson for the department did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the ruling.

  1. I am very tired of the government hiding things in the name of security and then revealing it years later when it makes no difference. This breads distrust of the government.

  2. What does this all mean? I thought it was proved that Trump had no collusion with Russia at all? That it was a Hillary Clinton hoax.

    • But they still want Trump in prison for something. It would be so easy to find stuff on any of them, they just can’t believe they can’t find anything!

      • You got that right. Dems will try any way to keep him from running in any political position in the U.S.short of muttering him, which I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s not the lady pea on their plate.

  3. These idiots can’t get President Trump off their minds. The only people that did something wrong was the dam Democrats!!and none of them have been held accountable. You and I would be At GITMO or shot for treason!!!
