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.
