Democratic presidential candidates weigh in after Attorney General William Barr releases a summary letter basically giving Donald Trump cover for obstruction of justice: “Release the full Mueller report to the public.”

Barr sent a four-page summary to Congressional leaders saying that Robert Mueller did not find that Donald Trump or anyone in his campaign conspired with Russia to help him win the 2016 presidential election. In other words, he seems to think Trump is above the law.

Mueller left it up to Barr to determine if Trump obstructed justice, though Mueller didn’t “exonerate him.” Well, surprising no-one, Barr deemed that Mueller’s evidence was “not sufficient to establish” Trump committed obstruction of justice.

Jerrold Nadler, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, tweeted:  “Special Counsel Mueller worked for 22 months to determine the extent to which President Trump obstructed justice. Attorney General Barr took 2 days to tell the American people that while the President is not exonerated, there will be no action by DOJ.”

That’s a good point. How did Barr reach that conclusion so fast? Furthermore, there are reports that Trump’s lawyer was briefed before Congress. In other words, the fix was in since Friday. Trump was too calm all weekend.

Sen. Kamala Harris tweeted: “The Mueller report needs to be made public, the underlying investigative materials should be handed over to Congress, and Barr must testify. That is what transparency looks like. A short letter from Trump’s hand-picked Attorney General is not sufficient.”

Sen. Cory Booker tweeted:  “The American public deserves the full report and findings from the Mueller investigation immediately—not just the in-house summary from a Trump Administration official.”

Sen. Elizabeth Warren tweeted: “Congress voted 420-0 to release the full Mueller report. Not a “summary” from his handpicked Attorney General. AG Barr, make the full report public. Immediately.”

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand said: “The Mueller report must be made public. Not just a letter from someone appointed by Trump to protect himself—all of it. The President works for the people, and he is not above the law.”
