Maxine Waters and the rest in the media will not let the Russian hoax die. Why would they?It makes them money hand over fist. It gets Maxine on TV to spew her nonsense and is making careers for guys like Adam Schiff.
No, they need this to be real so will literally close their minds and make it up. Mueller wrote a letter saying the media was taking his findings out of context and Barr needed to clean it up. In the letter Mueller said Barr did not mischaracterize his findings, the media did. That admission should condemn the media, instead, it gave birth to another conspiracy.
From The Daily Caller: Liberal media seized on news of special counsel Robert Mueller’s letter to William Barr, which expressed frustration over the attorney general’s initial depiction of his investigation’s findings, and presented it as evidence of wrongdoing.
Yet, much of the anti-Trump left seemingly ignored a crucial detail of the Tuesday report from The Washington Post, which explained that during a phone conversation between the two, the attorney general actually asked the special counsel whether or not his memo was “inaccurate.”
“There is now public confusion about critical aspects of the results of our investigation,” the letter read, according to the Post. “This threatens to undermine a central purpose for which the Dept. appointed the Special Counsel: to assure full public confidence in the outcome of the investigations.”
Democratic California Rep. Maxine Waters called on Barr to resign. Democratic California Rep. Adam Schiff used the news to undermine the attorney general. Democratic New York Sen. Chuck Schumer called on Barr to testify publicly.
But the Post report explained:
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.
In their call, Barr also took issue with Mueller calling his memo a “summary,” saying he had never intended to summarize the voluminous report, but instead provide an account of its top conclusions, officials said.
Justice Department officials said that, in some ways, the phone conversation was more cordial than the letter that preceded it, but that the two men did express some differences of opinion about how to proceed.
Now it is confirmed Mueller objected to the “context, nature, and substance” of Barr’s misleading summary of the report.
And the false public narrative it allowed the White House to create.
No one can place any reliance on what Barr says. We need to hear from Mueller himself. https://t.co/ET7tQxnGQG

No. But the collusion truthers have morphed into coverup truthers so the reported Mueller complaint will be with us awhile, never mind that he found no actual inaccuracies in the Barr memo. https://t.co/bNHK4LtXpI
