    For Mueller report, court ruling implies Barr must redact grand jury information

    In disclosing the Mueller report, Attorney General William P. Barr will have to redact grand jury information. That is the upshot of the ruling by a divided panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.

    I flagged this case, now called McKeever v. Barr (formerly McKeever v. Sessions), last week. It did not arise out of the Mueller investigation, but it obviously has significant ramifications for the Mueller report — in particular, how much of it we will get to see.

    At issue was this question: Does a federal court have the authority to order disclosure of grand jury materials if the judge decides that the interests of justice warrant doing so; or is the judge limited to the exceptions to grand jury secrecy that are spelled out in Rule 6(e) of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure?

    The D.C. Circuit’s McKeever ruling holds that the text of Rule 6(e) controls. Consequently, judges have no authority to authorize disclosure outside the rule.

    This is significant for the Mueller report because Rule 6(e) does not contain an exception to secrecy that would permit disclosure to Congress.






    >>>> So apparently there was a ruling that basically reiterated what I and many others with common sense have known : Barr must present a REDACTED Report to both Congress and the White House.

    Dems will whine of course but when haven't they whined? {<diva}

    It’s comical watching the scum bag blue ties call for a complete, unredacted, release all while knowing that it Can never happen.

    They know their retarded base will eat that shit up and make a scene.

    Just imagine it happening to you. You get investigated for dealing dope and are proven innocent, but the Leo’s release the full investigation showing you had an affair 20 years ago, or you were a closet tranny.

    I don't see why anybody would care, if only the grand jury info is redacted. That's not what people want to see, everyone is clamoring for the dirt on Trump.

    Except Nadler wants the "WHOLE REPORT" without anything left out.

    He knows that's not possible yet he's demanding this.

    So anything that's redacted in the report will be used by him and the Democrats as "proof" of a cover-up and then the whining will really begin.

    This is nothing more than a Political ploy to play to the Democrat base of mindless sheep who eat this shit up and ask for seconds. <{cruzshake}>



    EDIT : "everyone is clamoring for the dirt on Trump."

    >>> You said that wrong.

    It should be "everyone is clamoring for dirt on Trump". Remove the "the" before "dirt".

    Nadler and the Dems desire to see everything is Political, not Judicial.

    Trump is gonna make it through his term but I honestly don't believe he will get reelected. I fully expect a Democratic nominee to take office.

    I could see it. I could also see the Primaries dividing the Democratic base to a point where Trump wins in a landslide.

    Except CNN and congress Dems are already setting the playing field that the redactions are only to cover up the dirt on Trump things

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.cn...ss-exam-barr-redactions-elie-honig/index.html

    But a big question remains: Just how much of Mueller's report will we see? Barr carves out several types of information that he might redact from it.

    The major redaction battle will be fought over grand jury materials. According to Barr, Mueller served over 2,800 subpoenas seeking testimony and documents; all that information qualifies as grand jury material. Remove that much evidence from the report and it could end up looking like Swiss cheese.

    In the interest of transparency and public confidence in the Department of Justice, Barr should put away his redaction pen and disclose as much of Muller's report as possible. Anything less will raise one big question: What is Barr trying to hide?

    People want to see the evidence that Trump committed obstruction. Barr already said its in the report (along with evidence that he didnt commit obstruction). If that's redacted out then there will be (rightfully) a huge uproar.

    Honestly, it doesn't matter what Barr does. They will find a conspiracy no matter what. Even if they released the entire thing with nothing redacted, it would go one of two ways, and neither way would be accepting the findings.

    A) These parts right here are clear evidence of collusion. We know better than Mueller!

    ...and if the report is clean as whistle and there is nothing in there that can be twisted to form the narrative they want...

    B) Mueller is in Trump's pocket. He failed in his duties to the American people and should be investigated.


    They will never, I repeat, NEVER accept the findings and move the fuck on.
