Now more than ever it’s critical for Attorney General Barr to commit to releasing these findings to the public. https://t.co/c2BXI2AtT3
(THREAD) BREAKING: CNN says "AG Barr is preparing to announce as early as next week the completion of Mueller's Russia probe—with plans for Barr to submit to Congress soon after a summary of Mueller's confidential report." I unpack the news in this thread. https://t.co/yPjOgsYZiU
Mueller special counsel operation ending? Let's hope so, for the sake of the Constitution. https://t.co/BCl1rJhEgo
Let me be clear: Congress should have access to the Mueller report. A summary from Barr is not acceptable. We deserve to know the full truth. #Mueller #MuellerInvestigation https://t.co/PQB8DdpVE5
The grand jury that Mueller's prosecutors used hasn't apparently convened since January 24 the day it approved the criminal charges against Stone. https://t.co/lqHGPMmfnn
As a senior member of @HouseJudiciary I believe AG Barr must make the #MuellerReport public so all can learn how #Russia meddled in the 2016 election & whether that crime was aided & abetted by @realdonaldtrump or his campaign #TrumpRussia #Collusion https://t.co/SmTO4OnqfV
Liking Bill Barr more and more. First he sidelined Rosenstein, now this. He was read in and brought up to speeed over the last two days, and now it's leaking that we can expect a report possibly next week. I'm reading this as he shut #Mueller down. https://t.co/tkIqoTLrD5
NEW: As Mueller gets ready to wrap up, here's what we've seen @CNNPolitics: - Boxes carried out of the SCO - No grand jury meetings since Stone indictment - SCO prosecutors still coming in on holidays/snow days + additional DOJ prosecutors dropping by https://t.co/zrFE6JRTCT https://t.co/ser0mX3cph
"Mueller must submit a ‘confidential' report to the attorney general at the conclusion of his work, but the rules don't require it to be shared with Congress, or by extension, the public.” https://t.co/0LNA4msaoy
LOTS of hedging in this story, but even if Mueller delivers his report soon, his investigation likely will NOT end soon. Mueller recently extended his grand jury for *another 6 months*.😎 Plus SDNY, DC, and others have MULTIPLE ongoing probes.😉 https://t.co/XUqfAIyRP2
Current Status is the consensus view of the current top U.S. political stories from a cross-section of the news media ecosystem.
There are three components that determine the Current Status: First, there is an editorially-responsible algorithm that considers the signals news editors send about a story's news value. Second, there's a human-in-the-loop curating the list and providing oversight to ensure that the Current Status is a fair and accurate representation of the day's essential political stories. And third, Current Status is biased toward recent, highly-cited stories, with an emphasis on depth and accuracy. The stars are a reflection of a story's current relative news value.
This is what the political web is talking about right now.
Today in one sentence: House Democrats will file a resolution rejecting Trump's national emergency declaration; a federal judge banned Roger Stone from speaking publicly about his case; and the White House is forcing interns to sign non-disclosure agreements.
