Mueller Confirmed Barr Memo Was Accurate

If this new report about the telephone conversation Mueller had with Barr is correct, then it confirms what we suspected and what the conclusions of the redacted report demonstrated – that the Barr 4-page memo was not inaccurate.

When Barr pressed Mueller on whether he thought Barr’s memo to Congress was inaccurate, Mueller said he did not, but felt that the media coverage of it was misinterpreting the investigation, officials said.

Mueller and Barr are old colleagues and friends. Regardless of what you might think of Barr, it always seemed unlikely to me that he would inaccurately portray the findings of the report.

Of course, I don’t expect this to change the minds of the True Believers. This whole Russiagate affair demonstrates once again how people let their political ideologies become like a religion. Facts be damned.

Update 2019-05-02: We now have a copy of Mueller’s letter.

    Why be so insulting? In this country we are all trying to get to the bottom of things but your main concern is to be right, and to prove you were right all along. Clever boy. You’ve lost all balance, so let’s just call you the “True Believer”. A good deal of excrement is about to hit the fan and it has to do with obstruction of justice, not “Russiagate”, which you are so fond of mentioning. Barr has lied, misrepresented and generally behaved like Trump’s hack. He is fully and obviously corrupted, acting merely on Trump’s behalf, not on behalf of the American people. That concerns me even if it does not concern you. That is the main point, and you would do well to stop pretending otherwise, just for the sake of insulting the “True Believers”, whoever you think they may be.
