Yeah, well I think it should be released in hours and fuck Bill Barr.

U.S. Attorney General William Barr plans to issue a public version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election within “weeks, not months,” a Justice Department official said on Tuesday.
Barr released his own summary of the report’s central findings on Sunday, but said he needed more time to review the report to determine how much of it could be made public.
He relayed his plans to release a public version of the report in the coming weeks to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham during a phone call this week, the official said.
The official said there is no plan to share an advanced copy of the report with the White House.
If you believe that last bit I have some swamp land I would like to sell you.
There is NO way that Trump is going to be able to wait a week to see this report, and I would be willing to bet that he is already having it read to him by aides who know how to sound out the big words.
As for the public seeing a version of this report that Barr and his team spent over a week making incomprehensible with a black Sharpie, that is not going to be enough for a public that is chafing at the bit to get some truth about what Mueller discovered.
In fact, according to the New York Times, Barr does not ever plan to provide the full report to the public:
Beyond those bottom-line conclusions, Mr. Mueller’s full report has yet to be released, and it remained unclear if it ever would be. House Democrats have demanded that it be sent to them by next Tuesday, but the Justice Department outlined a longer schedule, saying that it will have its own summary ready to send to lawmakers within weeks, though not months.
“Saying that it will have its own summary ready to send to lawmakers within weeks, though not months?”
What happy horseshit is that?
The last thing the American people want is another summary from Bill Barr.
Clearly, everything that the Democrats feared about giving Barr the Attorney General position has proven accurate.
He was put there for one reason, and one reason only, and that is to keep the Mueller report out of the hands of the American people.
The House Democrats are going to have to subpoena Mueller’s report and his research and bring him in to testify.
THAT is the only way we will ever learn the truth.
