Some of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigators have told associates that Attorney General William Barr did not properly convey how damaging their findings were for President Donald Trump.
The investigators said Barr, in his memo to Congress, did not adequately portray the results of their nearly two-year investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
Those interviewed by the Times declined to fully explain why the Mueller investigators believe their findings were more damaging to Trump than Barr disclosed. Mueller’s team is comprised of 19 lawyers, about 40 FBI agents and other personnel.
Barr said last week Mueller’s report will be released to Congress and the public by “mid-April, if not sooner”. Barr has also offered to testify shortly after the report is released.
Barr, his team are frustrated with Mueller and his investigators. They believe his report should have concluded whether Trump illegally obstructed the probe.
